    Just when you thought there was nothing fun to do in Ohio!

    **THIS GAME ISN'T OFFICIAL UNTIL BEAN/SANFROID POSTS HIS TAG** :lurk

    There have been a bunch of guys playing this for a while now so most everyone knows the rules but if you're new to the game here are a couple.

    Rule #1. If you're new, watch how the game is played for awhile before jumpin' in cause I ain't explainin' everything to ya':D

    Rule #2 One tag at a time and county roads are acceptable (no dirt) but the tag must be findable. Include clues in your tag. Don't make the clues:norton unless you're Meef, he can figure out most anything. Bring your A game cause Meef will have a tag and post another while you're thinking about eating breakfast. :nod :lol3
    No whining :nono There are plenty of folks here that will help you understand the rules:lol3
    *** These rules are subject to change***

    See, only 2 rules:lol3

    Let the games begin :lurk

    See where all of the tags have been 11/23/08

    Alright, gentlemen. I went for an 80 mile ride in the fog this morning, not to get a tag, just to ride.

    Here's the next tag:

    and to make it easy, a hint:

    In a town that lays in two counties, on a US route.

    Have fun!:clap

    Dragoon borrows idea here

    First tag here

    Scroll through and you'll get the idea. Except that Meef's pics aren't showing up.

    I'm just glad he blamed Meef for posting tags while others stopped to eat breakfast. :lol3 Although I think I do hold the record for the most unsuccessful attempts in a row (something like 4 attempts where by the time I got home someone else had it posted). :bluduh


    See if this encompases the rules for the newbies:

    1. You ride to where the photo is using clues provided and take a picture of your bike at that location.:ricky

    2. Be the FIRST to get home and post the picture in this thread.:evil
    3. Ride out (in a reasonable amount of time please) and find a new location to take a photo of your bike at the next tag location. Doesn't have to be the empire state building but something with history or unique attributes helps. :cromag
    4. If you make clues too hard or location to vague you will be scorned and punished.:whip :hung :thwak


    Just to clarify for newbies. And I think this should be a new rule.
    5. Goonies decisions are the final ruling if there are questions.:evil

    Yes, I am anal retentive and pulled a lot of older pics off my photobucket account. If it ain't being actively viewed then I don't like to keep it on there hogging space. Sorry!

    The one activity where finishing early is rewarded!:evil

    And one hint for newbs is that like in all hunting, it's good to get to know your prey. Where they live - roads they like to ride - how far an 80 mile route might take them from their home in southern ohio east of Cinci near the river. Where's my damn protractor!?:lol3

    I think I rode about 50 to 60ish. The fog was sick around 9:30 this morning. I kept having to turn my head to the right and left so the wind would blow the condensation to either side as it built up on my face plate. Sadly I forgot my free Buell neck protector and my neck got rather chilly.
    This will be probly be the only time this will ever happen so I have to give him a hard time about it: Called Meef about 9:15 "You comin?"
    "(yawn)Whats the weather?"
    "33 and fog."
    "Nah I'll pass..."
    "(gasp)" :eek1

    Don't worry Mark, I won't use the tag pic since it was your idea to go shoot there.:lol2 :chace

    Dave,
    That tag pic is from last summer( a "file" pic:evil ), but, just by coincidence, the tag is about 80 miles from Hammerock. I figure the monument is what will pinpoint the tag.
