    Your tag is easy. We (myself included) are just being lazy.

    I hope some new players will jump in here.
    Right now we just have like 4 players i think.

    my bad, I thought it was pretty easy. I spoke for the group too soon and in error it seems.

    Yea I think that yall, Fla and Calf are legit to have a east, west game or north, south. I mean from Newport to Memphis is what 12 or 13 hours. I know as a kid we used to go see my grandparent is Oklahoma, when we got to Memphis we were halfway there but had 4 more states to go thru. lol. Have fun playing tag I know there is quite a few of us in NC that are enjoying it. Speaking of which we are having a BBQ in Natahalla the weekend of May the 2nd some of yall ought to try to come over, tent space is avaliable, contact JoeWannaBe he also has some cabins avavliable for this. Oh and dont worry we only started out with like 4 or 5 and then people started finding it and joining ADV just to play tag. I checked it out once and I think that we have had well over 30 people get a tag.

    I had never looked Tanasi up on Wikipedia before that is pretty interesting reading more than is on the sign. (HINT: also gives a location)

    I'll get out riding this weekend and get a more remote tag to post next time. I'll try more north to see if we can suck some more people into playing.

    The new tag is:

    Blue Sky, nice Lake, One might feel on Top of the World.

    Then i got there. The lake is private, there are Keep Out and Members Only signs everywhere and most of the properties arent even that nice. Even a sign on the dam that said "No parking on dam" which is where I wanted to stop and take my tag picture. Oh well...this spot will do I guess.

    This place looks a lot cooler on a map that it actually is in person.

    My apologies if any of you ADVers live up here. I just wasnt impressed.

    Ok I guess there was no interest over the weekend so I got it today, ( I did have to circle back, I enjoyed the Foothills Parkway so much I forgot to stop for the picture.)

    [​IMG]


    I have moved it North a bit, Hopefully to get some more players

    the sign tells all (this one is for a dual sport)

    If you are on a street bike I think we can let you slide in with this (the road turns to gravel here)

    Same area

    While you're in the area Pittman center road is a nice ride

    our first off-road tag! :D good job mb!

    on a sadder note, the TA is out of commission until parts arrive...front brake problems (as in lack of). got some things up there that are cracked that ought not to have cracks in em, so i'm not gonna be taggin for a while. :cry

    Bummer the TA is a way cool bike, I hope you get it fixed soon.

    It had been quite a while since I had been up there, I was reminded how much I hate Gatlinburg/pigeon forge/Sevierville. and it was as quiet as I have seen it.

    I have several Ideas for tags that will be further from pavement and harder to locate, I just thought I would try for more interest in the game for now.
