    Best tag related idea I've ever heard. Get bored and pick tag locations and copy paste url and address into a word document. Get some free time and start grabbing.

    Hell, the only reason I went to Merchant's Mill Pond State Park was because it was tagged in NCTOR. I couldn't make the grab, but I jotted it down as a place to visit, and made it there in July. That place was VERY cool.

    .. I hate that I had to throw a file-tag shot but I got tied up at work helping out a customer until almost 5:00 .. so got some overtime and made a new friend .. and got to talk to some fellow employees in Lufkin, TX and Sanduski, OH .. lol .. good times ..

    .. I used this tag in another tag game too .. awesome site and some very kewl history ..

    .. nearby there is also the remains of an AMAZING trestle bridge that goes over the river and runs along the flood plane for somewhere around a mile .. never had the chance to get a shot of it with my bike, but keep your eyes peeled or do some google-research and make a plan .. it would make a killer tag shot ..

    Trying to head west tomorrow to see my son. It is a nice ride out to that area. You can keep it pretty desolate if you want.
    Heading up towards Roanoke for some woods racing on Sunday.

    Nice bike wb! You don't see many of 'em in the wild. I picked up a leftover 2011, same color as yours, about 3 weeks ago. I hope you're as happy with your V, as I am with miine. I've got just under 1,500 miles on mine and am heading out this morning to enjoy one of my favorite riding areas, the great backroads of SE Ohio. I'll probably put another 300 miles on it today. You know what they say: it's a tough job, but somebody's gotta do it!

    I spend quite a bit of time in eastern NC at various times during the year. Perhaps we'll meet up at some point. In the meantime, enjoy your V!

    You're right. I've only seen a handful of them around. Got mine almost exactly a year ago and should hit 10K miles this morning- if I didn't yesterday - forgot to check. Let me know when you get in this area again.

    Ok... Maybe I'm dense but I don't understand your map. If the western boundary is the Atlantic, wouldn't most of the world be in play? Perhaps just pencil in a big bold line on your map so I can see what you're getting at.

    I might be making assumptions here, but I've just been working as if that's a typo/brain fart and should be the "eastern" boundary. :D

    Not looking to place a tag in the Gulf Stream...

    We discussed that a lot, and I made a lot of tweaks to that initial post. I guess at some point I made a typo. It is fixed now.

    Let us know when you will be back in the eastern parts of NC. One of us will kick this tag or the NC tag (maybe both :deal) down east and you can play along in these games. I spend as much time as $$ and time allow down east.
