    Alright here we go. Lets get this thing started and hopefully we start off alot smoother than some of the others. The game is simple, the rules are easy, the goal is to get people out riding. With the goal in mind, please dont make the clues so hard that we have to surf longer on the net than we have to ride to get the tag. So here are the rules :deal .

    #1 FILE PHOTOS CAN ONLY BE USED TO PLACE A TAG NOT TO GET THE TAG.
    #2 THE PHOTOS OF THE TAG SHALL BE AS CLOSE AS THE PREVIOUS TAG PHOTOS AS POSSIBLE. That means that the tagger needs to make sure that his photo can be shot be anyone on any bike. The taggers bike needs to be in the photo. So I think that if a road is goverment maintaned and legal to ride than it is fair game. Gravel or not. Also tell us where the tag was.
    #3 NO WHINING ABOUT IT BEING TOO FAR. If U think it is too far go get it and bring it back to your part of the state. Trust me I will.
    #4 TAG MUST BE FINDABLE. If a tag is standing too long U will be asked to post a clue or a new tag. New tag must be posted no later than 24 hrs of the posting of your tag. U will forfeit your tag to the previous tagger. Lets keep the game moving.
    #5 HE WHO POSTS FIRST WINS. It dont matter if U got to it first, He who post first wins the tag (Man I am seriously thinking about getting a laptop or a blackberry now).
    OK I believe that that is it. So lets have fun and ride safe. All rules are subject to change if the larger part of the inmates think that it should change. Lets go play TAG!!

    U can find this in a National Forest named for the River that runs thru it. That river is a popular white water rafting spot. It is on a 2 number state highway that equals 10. This set of falls is quit a popular photo op. U cant see it now but it usually has a really full "veil" of water running off of it.

    [​IMG]

    If U are coming from the east U will be able to see this b-4 U get to the tag it used to be really pretty b-4 they started building in the low part.

    Go get it.

    Yea I have seen pics of that I think it happened last year or something. I could not tell where it came off at but there was new pavement under there. They are doing road construction in two places up thru there so be prepared to get caught in that. Going to TDP are U. I hope U have a good time. Tell YJ, Mel, and the rest of the guys hey for me. They will know me as Greenspray over there tho. Sure do miss my KLR sometimes :cry . I knew it would be a pretty good haul for U but U are a lil ironbutter from what I hear. 300 miles aint a drop in the bucket for U. :wink: .

    Well I see it has made it's way to NC. Too bad it will not get close to me, just from where it started, they usually stay in those areas. Maybe someone visiting will move it around a bit. Good luck guys. I will be watching the progress.

    Going and grabbing is the problem. When it gets closer I will try to join in but for now I will just watch and enjoy the pic's. I don't know where most of that stuff is anyways. I have not been in the western part of the state. My loss I know just work and family limits travel.

    OK, Let's pretend for a minute that I'm stupider (is that a word?) than I really am...

    Is the object to go ride my bike out to that same rock and take a photo of the two, then be the first one to post it up?

    And if I am the 1st one, I have to post a new photo w/ my bike in it somewhere else?

    Go ahead and say it... Duh!

    Attachments are a pain on this forum...

    You can either re-size them in your computer....or upload them to a hosting service 1st (like smugmug or photobucket)

    It'll make things much easier.
