    RedDirt. Lesson one of taggin.

    1. Never tell them when you are leaving or that your headed out for it. That makes it even MORE fun, cause its a race now. They will get you everytime.
    "Yawn, Think I'll go take a nap." VRROOMMM!!!!

    Learned that lesson first hand also. Try chasing a tag around Tulsa with 10 other douche bags on crotch rockets and internet/cell phone/cameras just waiting to jump on the next post.

    cool ideee fer a game... i just don't have the photo gear to make it happen, though. do know of some great ghost towns and kingfisher county is positively littered with gorgeous old box iron bridges.

    see, i live and love this monastic life of mine. no cellphones, no internets('cept at work), no speedvision(just oeta's movie club).... hell, my computer at home hasn't been turned on in ten years.

    i do have tons of photo gear. i was a photog back in the dark days before digital. sadly, it's all analog, big neg stuff.

    like this.

    Hey Blake. Ole slow pay here...:wave Nice camera.

    I've been thinking about turning my 11 year old loose with one of my old Canon 35mm's. They're not worth anything anymore. But I got to wondering, I bet film is scarce, and expensive now.

    hey lew...

    i don't see why you shouldn't. film's cheap. finding some place to get it processed and printed isn't getting any easier though. (break out yer tanks and reels)

    i keep wondering if i should move into the digital age with the rest of the world. then i see a 8x wehman...

    and consider all the old red dot artars i could pick up for next to nothing.

    I'm gonna bump this up to hopefully keep things going..

    Just a couple of miles west is mabye two or three. It's pretty obvious unless your eyes are closed.

    Somebody come and get this tag...I'm bored and need someplace to ride to..

    I also need to buy a trailer to I can haul over to Arkansas and get with you guys over there. Do some real riding.

    Anybody got a trailer for sale ?

    You got me going with this one..

    Look at it from google earth.. Look at the little road going out the back.
    Follow it look what's to the north of it.. All the little concrete squares. That's what I'm interested in.
    Looks like we can go around the plant on the north side of the fence and hook up with that road... Wonder if it's some kind of radioactive waste dump ?

    That is, If I'm in the right spot....:norton
