    Yeah, it was a beautiful ride. Whoever grabs my tag at the church won't be dissapointed.


    I think he's suggesting that the grab shot should as faithfully as possible match the original tag shot. In my case, I couldn't park my bike in the same spot as in Steve's tag shot because there were cars parked there. I think the goal should be to match the original shot as closely as possible, but if you can't for some reason, as long as it's clear from the grab shot that you're at the same place, that's ok. It would suck to find the tag but not get credit if for some reason you couldn't park your bike in the exact same spot.

    Looks like you are off to a great start. Grew up in Springfield so expect me up there from time to time to drop off a mascot or cache:ricky

    PM me about Tag Maps whoever is looking into it - I can give you some hints/tips (see Valley Map in Sig Line)

    No pics or anything, so it's only a guess.

    Seriously? Recheck those clues. It's pretty well spelled (well, maybe "spelled" is the wrong word) out. Sorry gotta bust balls, it's just the way I am.

    Maybe I just have an unfair advantage, as I am only two stop signs away. I'd go pick it up tonight if my ankle wasn't arguing with the weather.

    Heck, if you're that close, put your bike in your front yard and aim/zoom the camera at the tag. :lol3

    That would be two country stop signs... It also feels a little unfair to check that one off when it could lead to someone else discovering some decent local roads.

    Yep, grew up in Fairfax, so I know the area well. Like seeing the old haunts as new tags...Plus, the in-laws are still there so I might see ya'll soon enough if the wife has anything to do with it. :lol3

    Yes! Get to it before Upst8, although he might be busy riding out to Ivor to get HR tag:rofl We have four tags in VA now?!?!?! We are ahead of the game, how do the other states compare?

    The usual protocol is all hints need to come from the original tagger. It is probably time for me to "back away from the computer, so you can reread the clue."
