I could give a long drawn out answer to this question but a picture really is worth a thousand words...

Nuff said?

Tag #65

If you're in the heart of the triangle and you need to pick something up, cut down this gravel road:


(It was night, the sign was the only thing reflective. Not that there is much to see along this road, but still)

You gotta be kidding me...this is acceptable???...you might as well just tag your freakin mailbox.... You know one of the reasons I'm not playing this TOR is because of the lack of imagination and the lack of interesting tag subject matter...this is just plain boring........not only that but doesnt anyone know how to take a good photograph?

It's actually fun to bomb down a gravel road right in the middle of RTP.
At least for me. It used to have a lot more significance as it was the "back way" into some of the best trails in the area. Now they are 540. :(
Not as much fun to ride along 540 as the trails were.

Its nothing personal...but I am outspoken because i want to see quality tags that motivate you to get out and ride... a tag just for the sake of tagging doesnt do it for me...dare i give you an example from the NJTOR?
This tag was put up this a.m....its already been got..but this is typical of what is meant by a quality tag subject and photo...

Shouldn't need any clues I realize as the day goes on an exact shot may be difficult so any pic with Statue & your bike in it will do
Off to DMV & a 50th B-Day Party

I think tagging the neighborhood af Cam Ward trumps ANY New Jersey Devils tag.........just saying!


So, you'd rather ALL the triangel tags be downtown Raleigh?


If I knew where this gravel road was, I'd go get it now....I'm bored.

No I'm not saying they should all be downtown...I was merely using that pic as an example of an interesting photgraphic composition...I'm not even saying a gravel road is boring...but a speed limit sign could be just about anywhere...what further photgraphic evidence is there to prove the location once its got?...none was given...
