    Sorry cat...I got back to Hendersonville close to midnight....what a ride!

    Here is a great tag so you can come and visit Hendersonville. I made it easy on myself after the long ride yesterday. Take some time to park and then walk up the house and farm area...it is a great place to spend an afternoon.

    Since the poll closed, I revised the game rules. Let me know if it doesn't make any sense. :lol3

    Good job on #4 Blinker, and you did make it understandable.
    Also glad you're keeping up with the no file photo rule.

    Nice Honda twins in the photos.

    OK... I'm one of those stealth guys that might just show up ANYTIME and grab the mascot and run with it. I think it's time the Mascot Chicken takes some time to work on his tan on our excellent Florida beaches. :lol3

    I'm not as familiar with the term "file photo" as some might be, and in rule number one I see the following quoted text.

    "#1 File photos are not allowed."

    OK... Can you please clarify what a file photo is? If you don't want to go through a lengthy explanation (who does?) here's my specific question.

    I keep a bunch of photos of my bikes at cool places I've visited and I'd like to use one of those when I make a tag. Some of the orth American TOR tags are more than 12 hours from my home and I'd like to take the picture, go to an internet cafe' and upload it and then upload one of my tags from "back home".

    Would these tags that I already have qualify as file photos or do you mean photos taken by others that also don't have one of my bikes in front of the tag?

    A file photo is any photo you have taken BEFORE grabbing the current tag. New tag shots MUST be taken AFTER the grab and include your motorcycle and the chicken. Thats my short take on it:dunno

    This tag was located at the Carl Sandburg Home National Historic Site in Flat Rock, NC.
    This was a little too easy Shandy:lol3

    New tag is coming probably this afternoon or tonight at the latest.

    Nice TAG... so might the Chicken be kept around to join in the BBQ Saturday? Gotta keep it moving perhaps to do that.

    What HBurgNinja said is correct, New tag photos should be taken after the tag grab is made and should probably include the tag mascot (although I know the rules really don't say that).. Since you'd have to go place the mascot at whatever the new tag location you choose anyway, you can just take a picture then.. If you move the Tag that far, no one will care if it takes a few days.

    The location of this tag is one of the most photographed waterfalls in the world. It is located in a county that got its’ name from the Latin words for across and woods and not vampires as some might have you believe. The waterfall gets its’ name from a nearby rock.

    A better picture of the waterfall.

    Johnny U suck!! :D . I had babysitting duty or I was going after that. Me and the kids took the truck by to see if maybe it was still there for a nite tag when the lil lady got home from the hospital (she had to work a 12 hr shift today). I seen the chicken was gone so I figured it was either U or Norm that got it. See U this weekend at the BBQ. I might still go after this one tonite tho"

    Oh Oh Oh I know where that is!!! :D

    Unfortunately its about 5+ hrs away from me. I was there around Christmas and pretty sure I have a photo of my wife in front of the waterfall. Good luck to whomever gets it, its a very pretty ride.

    Well I went and got it this morning. Left the house at about 7 and figured for sure someone else would have beaten me to it.

    Me and chicken stopped long enough to check out the falls.

    Then we went to Julies in Brevard for some breakfast.
    [​IMG]
    Then headed for SC and to Ceasars Head state park. Would have gotten some photos of the view but the clouds were rolling in as I got there and the view was obsured to say the least.
    [​IMG]
    Then started back towards the house and crossed the Contienital divide, the chick started clucking in the tank bag and it sounded like she wanted her picture took. SO!!!
    [​IMG]
    Going to hold on to her for a little while and take her to the SouthEast taggers BBQ on the 2nd prolly do a mass drop off with the few that are showing up to the event. Come on out and have a good time. WannaBeJoe is providing the food and he has cottages for those that dont want to camp.
