    Thats great, but actually I think Dogsroot's got the conch, so to speak. He's inline to place the next one. There's currently no timeframe for dropping a new tag, but if it goes longer than a day or two we'll gang up on him.

    :huh Hold yer horses y'all, a new TAG is at hand!



    Saw that; didn't even register the spelling. And me a part-time editor too... :huh


    Technically, its me. :norton

    The DOGHOUSE is not in the good ole US of A. :rofl

    Regardless of technicalities, I'm glad you promoted our Global Wild Card TOR internationally. That was one of several things running through my mind as I was runnin' 'round town.






    NEW TAG

    I don't imagine I need to tell you what this is.

    The Tag will be: a BIZARE building of some sort. The CN Tower qualifies in my mind 'cause its 180 stories tall, but has only 7 or so floors. :eek1

    Now go find some cool structures down there whether it's on dirt or not, no old pictures please, the point is to get out today and ride. Isn't it summer time down there?:wink:

    So where is the Doghouse? Canada?:dunno

    Hummm,UncleGra is that a building or a chimney?:bluduh

    I know I confused the situation by saying go find a structure, but don't ever listen to me...

    Ok let's give it to him he said he wasn't too smart.

    So now you get to go take another ride and take a picture of anything of your choosing with your bike, and all of us all over the world get to chase after that new global tag!

    Try to make it something we can find here in Virginia if you wanna play nice.

    Is that you on top of the tower?

    Ooops! Also your bike is not in the picture I just noticed...:ddog

    Tag denied! Make sure your two wheeled motorized conveyance of any sort is in the picture, I don't see your ride in this one unless I'm not looking close enough.

    Cool place in South Australia we wanna see more of it,just learn the rules. Everyone will get the hang of it.Awww,we're teaching the world to play tag.

    Bizzaro building is still in play, is everyone in agreement?

    Yeah, I have to agree. The last thing we want to do is run you off but it was supposed to be a building.
    It really gets addicting once you get the hang of it. I was out the other night till 12:00AM looking for a tag! :lol3
    Skim through this thread and see how that game has progressed.

    http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=514283

    So, go back out, "GRAB" a picture of an unusual building with your bike in the pic and post it up! While you are out doing that, look for something interesting to post as the new "TAG". That way the game moves along quickly.
    It can be something as simple as a fire hydrant, telephone pole, bridge, gas station, restaurant, speed limit sign(just for the type of sign itself, not the speed), you standing beside your bike, just about anything that would be found around the world.
    Hope you stay and play! Once more people start playing it will get intense! :eek1

    P.S. UncleGra, your photos would be great "TAGS" for when you get the "GRAB" but the pictures need to be taken the day of the posting.
    Just remember, it's all about getting out and riding!!!

    I find that in the Wild Card games the no dirt restriction should be more like this; ride on what ever surfaces you want, just do not make a dirt trail part of the tag requirement. It makes no matter where you find the item for the tag, just that you get out and ride.

    I have one of those buses, it's on my mates block for the short term. Will be semi living in it in a few months time and I'd bet those buses in the pic had the same owner as mine did before I got it.

    The ride is not interesting enough to warrant a photo, might have to use the black top for some of the way. Too late anyway.

    Doh.... We got something similar here in N.Z. but it's a 3.5 hr ferry ride away and about 900k's, otherwise I'd go and get it, I love a road trip :D , did a 2200 k trip for our nationwide tag game :clap

    Correct me if I am wrong, but the current outstanding tag is a bizarre building right?
