    Hi Everybody.

    I'm trying to start a new TAG-O-RAMA game on the Dirt Roads of Washtenaw County MI.

    The rules will be based on the Legit Pine Barrens TAG-O-RAMA of south New Jersey. Extra laid back. Retag photos will even be OK if they are from a different angles.

    The MAIN POINT is that these tags should be taken from a legal public dirt road somewhere in Washtenaw County Michigan.

    Secondly, the hints should be quite easy . I don't even mind if you post GPS co-ordinates. The idea is to give a reason and motivation to get out and ride some DIRT ROADS in WASHTENAW COUNTY.

    have fun!!

    Here's the Starter Tag; It's a Class D Airport for sale...but you can't buy it at MACY's department store, but maybe MACEY's

    I did not know you could do that? A old riding bud of mine had a similar 360 or 390. It was Burtlesons old six days bike, everything was still safety wire tagged. It was the only American bike to finish that year...I have no idea where Washtenaw county is? Time to go to Goggle Maps.

    Washtenaw County is the one with the blue and YELLOW road signs in SE MI ORGT:eek1. We Spartan fans do frequent their dirt roads despite this obvious mistake however:D.
    In terms of that Husky is that the original tank on it? I thought only 390s had a purple tank. Cool to use a vintage bike for ADV riding. No need for long travel on those smooth roads and easy for old guys(girls) to throw a leg over.

    I will try to get over to the cemetery tomorrow.
    If I post up a new picture does it have to have a sign in it ? Or can it just be a landmark or scenic road ?

    Unique landmarks are best, of possible. But a senic vista is fine. Lets just get the game going
    Signs not required.
    The only requirements are washtenaw county and dirt roads and riding!!

    This is a sweet picnic spot on the other side of the county, on a lake that starts with a C.
    There is only one way in, down a steep, curvy, gravel road.
    The coordinates on my gps are,
    N 42°19.404'
    W 084°06.988'
    Elevation 996 feet[​IMG]
    And it is in a Rec area.
