    I'll be all over this with you guys in a few weeks. I'll be a Wichita resident on the 1st of December. So pumped!

    We'll be in Valley Center for a few months while we target a part of town (rocking a farm house short-term). I think we'll wind up in riverside, Andover or College Hill.

    that looks like a better angle to deal with the sun than the one i used.

    Hi! Just came across this thread. Do all tag locations need to be pavement accessible, or are dirt roads ok too? What sort of radius to Wichita would you want to maintain?

    I think dirt roads are OK. I was thinking of 100 to 150 miles radius around Wichita. Let's get some other people who are likely participants to give some input. We don't want to make it so hard that nobody plays but it needs to be interesting and somewhat challenging.:ear

    with so few people participating right now it would be easy to bring the thread to a stall if the tag is to out of reach. and btw, where is that new tag??

    Makes sense. How about until this grows, the tags are kept pavement accessible and no further from Wichita than surrounding communities? Maybe Park City or Newton at the north end, Udall at the south, Goddard to west and Augusta to the east? If the tags are kept within Wichita city limits for a while, there might be more response?

    Yeah! where is the new tag? The weather is too nice to waste!

    that sounds like a good plan. i guess it all comes down to who shows interest. it would be nice to see this thing take off.

    I was wondering what had a domed roof that looked like it was out in the country - the Lake Afton Observatory! Haven't had a chance to wash the bike since my last Flint Hills ride.
