Not yet, but I'd expect it sometime before the time change this fall. I'd expect less than half the country will be snowbound. It's all good.

I don't do so well in the snow being a Texan.

Exactly…. It doesn't take much talent to ride forever (quantity) to drop a meaningless tag by a country store. Quality relates to the interest of the tag spot, not the distance (quantity) traveled.

Move the fucking tag, or give it to someone else. In the Garden State, where we play a fairly sophisticated game, it is understood that before you grab a tag, you should have done at least some planning for a new tag. If you don't have the time or interest in dropping a new tag, then you shouldn't grab the old one in the first place.

Yes, quality. Not endless miles of highway to useless tags. and Endless twittering about nonsense….

This tag, one of the originals with the Viking's egg, was pretty appropriate:

Then play your "sophisticated" Garden State game, and quit bitching about this one. If you make the grab, then you can decide how long to hold before the next move. As it stands right now, you're not in possession of the mascot......so shut up and wait!

Park it back in NC. We'll keep it bouncing around for you for a bit. Hell, we'll treat you to some barbecue while you're here. Caution: it's not all that sophisticated.

I hope you aren't planning on taking it anywhere near New Jersey?

This will be a local drop. The weather is not conclusive just now to a long unplanned ride, nor do I have the time.

Hey, I have ridden out of state four times (NCx2, KY and IL) to grab this thing. Feel free to head down this way for a change.

If you were still in NC, you'd have looked at his avatar and seen that he's in AL...

He stole the one in western NC a week or so ago.

The avatars are so small on the photo.... He just looks like a grumpy ass pixilated man in a suit who is upset with his sophisticated game.
