    it was south of Nashville. Fort negley entrance. Beautiful place!
    New tag to be posted soon. Pre-apologies: should be easy and is not off the "beaten path". I have no problem taking the "grandpa" bike off the blacktop but time is unfortunately working against me!

    Well I'm a idjit.

    When the kids were little, we were members of the Science Center right around the corner. Must have driven by it a hundred times and I didn't recognise it. :gerg

    Getting old sucks..now where'd I put my glasses...

    Have seen the Science Center many times from the interstate and never would have imaginged a place like fort negley would be nestled in behind it. Have been following along on the site for a few weeks and finally decided to join in on the fun. Great site and a good way to explore middle TN.

    A hearty welcome to all the new blood. Had no idea we had us our own little Disneyland here in town. Learn something new everyday!

    Ok guys, I'm back from doing the MS, AR parts of the TAT. Ready to go and get some tags. Well, almost. I've got to change tires.
    Things that I've learned: knobbies are not fun on the road and they only last about 1500 miles, riding in a hail storm is interesting at best and an Arai XD doesn't like cross winds are any thing over 80 mph.

    Rules updated. No major changes. It came to my attention that rule one was somewhat unclear on using file photos. That has been clarified.

    the powers that be here at work have seen fit to block several photo hosting sites, including photobucket, webshots, and smugmug that I know of so far. This makes it virtually impossible for me to play the game. I can't see the tags. And I can't upload tags. I actually had the Ft Negley tag but I could not upload it.

    I am thinking of getting a cell phone with internet access. I don't know very much about these things. Any suggestions? I will post this in the shiny things forum, I don't want to get this one off topic.

    thanks

    ?Does that mean that a nOOb has a first post tag and BRUCE?!:beer
    I have an iPhone and use the free photobucket application. Makes it very easy to snap the pic and immediatley upload directly from the phone (if cell reception is up to par!) You can save the advrider forum as a icon on the main screen of the phone and be on the site with the click of one button. Would probably cut out a few Bruces!

    Thanks :wave


    : Your photo must be taken after the new tag is established. (can't just use old photos you have on hand). This goes for a new tag placement as well. No file photos may be used.

    1a: Try to reproduce the photo as well as possible from memory. If something's blocking your way, just do your best...the idea is to prove you were there; not to critique composition. You may only submit one photo for a tag. You may only capture a tag with one photo.
