If you need some help with TAG placement in NJ, I have a few idea of where to plant the egg!

Got it!

That road is a little busy to be stopping on the wrong side of to snap a picture, so I went to the entrance for the tag shot:


It's the visitor center at Wallops Flight Facility.


Got the egg, with a bag of goodies, as well! Sweet!


Look for the next tag in a few days! Thanks for the sweet tag, madmax!

Thumb don't be so hastey, and soo condescending....it's a game...

More cool shit



Some history



The gates were closed when I got there, so I couldn't get pics of any of the other stuff. I think they're only open Thurs-Mon this time of year, from 10-4. Oh, bring your bug spray, holy shit there's a ton of nasty ass mosquitos!


....or maybe not.....just being a dic....tag shot is tag shot, unless a gate is closed, ...kindA.......but hell, I ain't been able to get out all the last 10 days..., just wanted to see the spot....and traffic didn't look (by the shot) like it should have been a problem, especially knowing the area....( what/ you saw A car?)
if the new tag is up when I get there i'll light speed to it, and drag it 4 states away... cause I just got free'd up.......

Hahaha, yeah yeah. I realized when I looked at the pictures that the pictures were totally devoid of traffic. I assure you, being a Friday afternoon on a holiday weekend, traffic was quite heavy. There's just not a safe spot to stop where madmax snapped the shot. Trust me, I agonized about not perfectly replicating the shot before I settled on that.

I realize you were just giving me a hard time, but it gave me a chance to explain myself, so thanks

WHere's the Beef???...well, he's the guy who got the TAG!!! Great job!

I wouldda gotten the TAG shot in front of the rocket ('especially after riding a distance just to retreive it), but I'm a prick...and I'm the kinda guy who'd stop right in the middle of traffic just to get it.

So Mr. Beef...how strong is your throwing arm??? I'm open....throw me the bomb shot...I'll go long! Let's get this TAG out West so it can bounce the winter blues away!!!

OK so my plans to take the tag west to the mountains have fallen apart for the foreseeable future, so I'll get a new tag up today or tomorrow so the game can go on.

Com'on guys, if you leave the TAG back East, it won't move much during the coming winter. Someone PLEASE drag the TAG Westward or South. That way the game can continue on and on.
This IS the North American TAG...so lets send it all over ALL of North America. Maybe it can get to ALL 50 states, plus Mexico...(it's obviously made it to the GWN.)

The year is 1781, and the American Revolutionary War has been raging on for nearly six years and has expanded to include several European powers. You are Lord Cornwallis, and you have just been ordered to set up a defensive naval position on the Virginia Peninsula to shelter British ships of the line. You select Yorktown, on the York River and dig in with 8000+ British and Hessian soldiers. Maybe you realized this on the way in, but it shortly becomes obvious that if your naval reinforcements are defeated, you are utterly trapped in your peninsular position. To make a bad day worse, your naval reinforcements are defeated, and you are royally (pun intended) screwed. George Washington's army of continentals, militia, and Frenchmen is nearly 20,000 strong, and setting up for a heavy siege, digging in just out of musket range. As if that weren't enough, Admiral de Grasse, the French commander who earlier defeated your reinforcements, is blocking your sea escape with his 29 ships and 3100 men. The situation is hopeless. You try to escape across the York River to Gloucester Point, but after your boats make one trip across, a squall hits, making riverine escape impossible. Yep, you're screwed. Realizing your predicament, you make the wise decision and send an officer to General Washington with a white flag in order to discuss the terms of your surrender. You have suffered over 600 killed and wounded, and now the rest of your army, 8000 strong, have marched through the lines of siege to a field of surrender and laid down their arms. Though the war wouldn't end for another two years, this surrender largely ended the land warfare in the colonies.



This tag is that field of surrender, in Yorktown, VA. An important place in our American history.
Tag shot:


Pretty large tree:


Map of the battle, including the location of the field (slightly outdated):



It was a balmy 48 degrees and raining on the way up there, and a sweltering 51 degrees on the way back! Make sure you drink lots of water and wear plenty of sunblock.

Learn more about the Siege of Yorktown.

(tag coordinates: 37.209023, -76.503310)

Go get it!

That is a quality tag and quality write-up! If this thing is still up for grabs in the AM, I will be off to get it!
