Calling All those in the vicinity of MT Rainier

There is a major situation with the NA-TOR or North American Tag-o-Rama. It was deposited at Mount Rainier by phideaux on the yearly Cannonball Run.
We in the South and East treasure this beast that has been sent so far west, and we were wondering if one of you more adventurist people would grab it and take it at least out of the snow zone soon for one of us to grab it? That way we can keep the game rolling. Otherwise it will be lost for the winter season.
This game has been from Alaska to Belize and everywhere in-between.

I really hope someone helps out here.

Thanks YRU

Looks like South East entrance on State HWY 123. See the post here.

Well that would be pretty simple to recover. I'm 90 minutes from there. Anybody closer?

This is where the mascot is hidden.

http://www.advrider.com/forums/showt...29115&page=385


For those who don't know what Tag-O-Rama is, it basically involves going to the location that a mascot is hidden (some games have no mascot , but are based on getting a photo of your bike and a place instead), and taking a photo of the recovered mascot, your bike and the place it was hidden. Next you take the mascot to a new location and hide it well so it is not discovered and taken by a non ADV'er. Take some photos of where it is hidden and a few clues for us to figure out it's location (road sign, historical place, landmark etc).
If someone grabs the tag and posts it on the game thread before you, you have been Bruced.

Tag-O-Rama is very big out East and in the South, there are regional, state and even city tag games being played.

Here is a link to the rules of the North American tag game.

DRONE it sounds like you may be closest.

I actually have plans to be very close to there tomorrow, and will make an effort to get there and move it along - if some FF doesn't beat me to it.

I know just barely enough about this Tag-O-Rama now to venture a guess you may be Bruced..!
