    You can kinda see the miner's legs behind the tree. Wouldn't have been my angle but I guess it works.

    Welcome to the game Brandon. I like the shot. Too bad your timing sucks. :lol3

    Thanks,
    I didn't see a single bike the entire trip there, and thought "I got my first one."
    After my last two failed attempts, I figured I would at least post the bruced pic.

    I knew exactly where it was, but didn't know the miners where there until today. The Byesville Scenic RR just went belly up last week, its too bad, they put a lot of time and effort into it. I agree that McTacticool's picture is way better than mine, I was more concerned with getting the picture up before I got Bruced.

    getting a tag is similar to getting laid...you hit on a bunch of women/tags before one finally says yes...keep after it, it'll happen

    I have mad respect for the guys that get multiple tags at once.

    Thanks guys! This was the first one that I had no clue where it was. After planning and setting out, it was kinda cool when I came upon it. Neat little place.
    With no legit cold weather riding gear yet, I sounded like Chevy Chase by the pool in "Vacation" repeating, "this is crazy, this is crazy.." when I was layering up to leave.

    Not too long ago for about an hour I had 3 tags at once. True story !

    So what you're saying is, until I have a camera (and a phone plan) that can upload pics, I shouldn't bother trying to get a tag?

    It would make it easier, but I'm still doing it the old way too. Take a picture and get home asap to download it!:D

    Sometimes you don't really care if you get a tag, other times (like when you rode all day) you really want to lay claim to it.

    I use a digital camera and either go home to post, or post off my NetBook from a wifi location if I'm way far away. McDonalds is a good spot, they all have wifi. So do most libraries.

    Meredith, not that she's a tag champion or anything, uses her IPhone to post.

    ORR has Matthew Brady take a daguerreotype.

    Bikeneil has his brother take the picture for him and then they reverse the process for the next tag.

    Nah, he does it old-fashioned, I have a smart phone. But with Sprint, there are times he could still beat me if we got to the tag at the same time.
    I got plenty of tags before I got the smart phone. Just gotta go for it!

    I still have to use the old crappy manual method. My phone is slowly dying out, time for a new one.

    See what happens if you move this thing out of the mating grounds of the tag brothers?
