    Way to go, JR!

    I thought Rugby would have grabbed that on his way back from Henderson this morning.

    :clap

    BE VERY CAREFUL TAGGING THIS.
    They do NOT like people taking pictures of that gate.
    We went down on a group grab and got yelled at. :D

    They were actually really polite, and fine as long as we didn't keep any pictures showing the gate. but your pic would have been a no no.

    My bad. I got it on the fly. Probably to quick for anyone to notice, and if they did, way to fast for someone to say anything. hope it isnt an issue.

    Don't the knuckle head marines know its on google street veiw!? Whats the big deal lol.

    For the record, if it's one of my tags and I didn't make it reasonably to completely easy to find, just ask. I'm not trying to make anything difficult to find at all. I'd much rather see it get grabbed 10 minutes after I place it so that I've got another to go after as quickly as possible.

    If you get the chance, go back to that area in the daytime. Follow Range Road all the way around the loop. Nice area out there.

    And good grab!

    Not a chance. I am not a fan of riding north Raliegh.

    Don't get me wrong, it wasn't difficult, just took a tad bit of knowledge and it was alot of fun finding

    I remember this place. I was watched by a nice uniformed man with an M16 when we stopped. :lol3

    I believe I killed the thread when I did it too. :cry It sat and sat. It required a posse to rescue it.


    Maybe it will not sit this time.

    Why yes I do and we would need tools. I Carter and I looked. No engine, fuel tanks and all the access panels and cockpit were screwed shut. No joy. I bet they stripped the instruments out of it too.


    We actually got this when we grabbed the ABC TAG. I used it in the NC TAG game.

    :clap Good grab.

    I think you'd probably be OK grabbing this tag if you just make sure not to photo the gate. I'm sure taking the pictures of the confused airplane is common. If not, I've heard the brig is pretty nice. :D

    Just park the bike while running, slide off, take the photo, and ride down the road a few blocks to upload and post it. I've pulled gate guard quite a bit. If you are there less than 30 seconds, you're likely to go unnoticed. I've got it down to well under 20 seconds for a photo.

    Well in the second pic of my son you can see the guard standing there. He came out of the guard house with his weapon right after we pulled off the road. He just stood there and watched us until we got back on the bike. I had even pulled up on the grass and parked the bike. There shouldn't be too much of a problem getting this TAG. However I would avoid peak commute times as it is a main gate to the place and traffic was a bitch the day we went.

    NAH I think he was giving "Props" to JR for grabbing the Butner TAG.

    Airplane TAG is still up for grabs. I'm working everyday this month so I cannot make the trip.
