Good Idea Scuba. One thing for sure no tags I place will be viewable on street view.

Much as I'd like to restrict the BBTOR to tags that are not available on street view, there are two considerations that seem to make it unworkable:

1) Aint exactly like we got folks beating down the door to play the game as it is. I dunno whether the street view rule would draw new players, but it would likely cost us some, and all we got is some.

2) There's a nice (if I say so myself) tag languishing out in the forest that will soon begin its fifth day unclaimed - even the ladies of the NFTOR are bustin' our balls about it, and with justification. On the one hand, their tags are rarely more than a frisbee throw from city hall -- but they do turn 'em over with some gusto.

Makin' 'em harder to get than they already are probably ain't the key stimulate activity in our beloved, lethargic TOR.

[If nobody gets that puppy by Sunday AM, I be gonna relocate it to the courthouse steps where some Liberal-ass judge will trip over it.]

I made a lunch time try, but had no GPS... I will be there with it on Saturday AM to claim it if at all possible. Been a tough week... I am sure Joey will if I don't

I would just like to say that I actually AM a lady over on NFTOR and I think we should all just get along.

I think we could get along "Real Well" with the "Ladies" from NFTOR.

I can't believe you pusses can't go get a little old tag cause it's covered in a little sand. That trail is actually pretty fun to ride.

I thought this was how we got along... You know... Razzing each other, teasing each other, challenging each other... Isn't that how deranged Adventure Riders get along?

I think that thick skins are necessary on ADV. It seems that people that ride motorcycles are not usually the touchy feely type and often have disagreements and the language used is often a bit rough.

Ladies' participation is somewhat rare due to the rough nature of conversations but we're sure happy to see one, such as yourself, here to brighten our days.

Thanks for joining us and I hope you enjoy the ride...

We used up all the time Buzz had available on his lunch break and the sand didn't slow us down much...

I went everywhere I needed to go and a few places I didn't need to go. The problem was neither of us brought a proper GPS and we didn't have the time to figure it out.

After we got back we figured out what we did wrong but Buzz hasn't had the time to go back.

So.... Although I am a "sand sissy", that wasn't the problem... It isn't nearly as obvious as we though it was and when we got there our confusion left us running out of time in a Keystone Cops fashion.

If we go get it the next time it will be a matter of just riding straight to it and grabbing the tag.

iPhone FAIL as a nav device when there is no service

Joey... Codename: Joey. Can get it in the morning if he and Tommy ride early. If not I will go with my HH GPS and get it. This is EXACTLY why I like coords as a tag- I don't need some garmin voice saying "turn left in 100" to get the tag. Know where your going... How you got there is the fun part
My first attempt failed. That just lights the fire to go again.
