say a person from the NOVA crew was to join the game, I would guess that the original boundries are still in play?

yes......but "loosly enforced" is the term I used in original post. In other words.......close to the boundaries is A-OK

its a good excuse to ride West. Hell, I have learned about several new places myself already and the game is young. The last tag I dropped was a place I had never visited before. Just happened to be riding past one day and said.........Hmmmmmm, tag to eat location.

as long as its a mom & pop place, close to or within the boundaries, its fair game.

Hell, who wants to ride in Fairfax anyway????

you would make better time on a bicycle there!

I think you have it but just to be clear, it's the NWVA tag boundary, not the NOVA boundary.
Makes for a nice stopping point(lunch) on a ride in the country.
Just yesterday I was talking with a couple folks about good Mom & Pop restaurants in the area. I had a few good ones but now I know a lot of good places to place the tag.

The duck is gone

Yep, I grabbed him. Walked in, said to the man behind the counter, "We're here for the duck."

He seemed relieved to be getting rid of it. :)

So here's where it was:

Jim's Country Store 26 Shenandoah River Lane, Front Royal, VA


This is the group of bikes that followed me to get the duck:



And the duck met a fellow tag-game player, Ali ...



They were both hungry, so they ordered some food:



Next time - did someone say BBQ? Will try to get it retagged tomorrow or the next day.

Yep - we were all happy and full when we left. :) Great little place. Now I need to find an equally good place to place the duck.

Im glad it was good. I was taking a chance with that tag since I had never eaten there myself. I find myself constantly looking for small places to make a new tag.
