    Hopefully Bobby will pull through. I'm working on a pain-free MIA policy that I think will work for any potential kidnappings of Rat by animals, kids, mother nature, etc.

    I was nervous the whole time riding up mill mountain that I would pass someone on a motorcycle with the RAT in hand. I'll post the new location this afternoon

    Nice work Bobbylight! Nice Kawi 250!:clap

    One thing I would recommend...leave RAT close to Roanoke(10-15 miles) until you have a feel for how many players there will be, and also because it's going to be cold(bad weather?) again soon. If you go long now RAT may sit for a long while...

    Oh, and BTW, welcome to ADV! First post making the first grab on a new tag game has never been done before. :lol3

    Oh, I don't know... I have a feeling it won't sit long if it's ever in the southern half of the region...:D

    From these locations the rat could set up signal fire locations like from lord of the rings. Perhaps next should be fort lewis mountain! (or any other of the xx's of mountains) What does 160 paces translate into tenths of a mile, or does it. I just have a 250 and uhhh nevermind!

    1 pace ~ 2.5 feet so 160 paces ~ .08 miles....

    If its too far away I'll happily bring it back down to the valley

    I'd say yes to both, you can't miss the graffiti and the rat is just across the trail from the graffiti. Right underneath where the two branches intersect

    It translates into the RAT being across from the old sign post. :evil

    Oh I was just wondering what the translation was in case someone was to accidentally ride to the location if they had a small bike. noone would ever do that though. that's against the Federalist rules! :D

    No way that was a great Tag in my opinion. i was talking with some coworkers here and passing out the link to the game and got some terrific completely insane ideas from someone. He asked me would it be against the rules if someone was to leave it under a pile of stuffed animals inside a toys r us :roflhey does it cost money to enter? Nope. Then another nutter idea: what if someone hid it in one of the free trolleys that run around downtown roanoke, with no bus number :evil Cost money to enter? nope. now that I've thrown that stuff out there Lord knows what will happen to this thing.

    So you did say fire roads are fine correct. I am more likely to leave it under a rock in a mud puddle than a toys r us. I have spent enough time in there with the kids:D

    haha! yeah I dont expect anyone to leave it in a store, but you never know. Fire roads are good to go! :D I'd say anywhere is good long as it doesnt get you arrested, cost money, or require ironman physical prowess and multiple hours hiking/swimming.

    I rode in to work today. The 3mi ride home in city traffic today should be about all I can handle during a raging thunderstorm. That would be an epic Grab!
