    Yeah, sure... just what we need. Another Tag-O-Rama in New England. But this one is going to be just a little bit different. Unlike any of the other TORs this one is designed to run for a limited time, and (eventually) will come to an end.

    This will be a lot like any other Tag-O-Rama, except the only valid locations in this one are those green, historical roadside markers scattered all around the state of New Hampshire. You know the ones, they usually have a short blurb about some significant historic event or location that occurred or was situated near the sign.

    For this TOR, only "Official" New Hampshire State Markers can be used. There are presently only 235 Official Historical Markers. The official ones are listed at the State's website: New Hampshire Historical Highway Markers

    The TOR spreadsheet tracker will be located and maintained here: NH Historical Highway Markers It lists the markers by number and town location, as well as the date and time the marker was tagged and found. A link is also in my signature line.



    The remainder of the rules are pretty much standard to many other TORs:


    • Tags in this game must be a photo of a previously untagged Official NH Historical Highway Marker, and must include your motorcycle (or at least part of it) in the photo.
    • When placing a new tag you must also get and post a photo of the marker sign clear enough to be able to read the entire sign. (see example in tag #1 below)
    • Find the tag and reproduce the tag photo (as best as possible).
    • The first person to post a found tag gets to place the next tag. If you get a tag photo first, but somebody else posts their picture first, you lose.
    • After claiming the tag, get your new tag photo and post it here.
    • File photos are NOT permitted . You've gotta ride to play this game.
    • New tag photos may have been taken either before or after the old tag was taken, as long as it was on the same ride, on the same day.
    • If a new tag is not posted up WITHIN 48 HOURS of a claim, the tag reverts back to the previous tag being back in play.
    • The 2x2 Rule: After claiming and posting a new tag, you must wait 2 tags or 2 days (whichever is shorter) to jump back into the game.



    And with that, I give you your first new tag.

    You only need to reproduce the tag photo above. The second photo is just required for new tags so everyone can read the sign easily:

    Significant for the start of this new game, this is the newest Historical Marker on the list!


    Game on!

    Very nice, for tags that are about something physical (such as the mill) might be nice to post a pic of what the sign is talking about as well. Makes the thread interesting even for people who don't participate in the tagging.

    Definitely agree.

    Though sometimes the thing they are talking about isn't all that easy to find. :evil

    Betty and Barney in 1961...hmmmmmm...tie dyed wardrobe and their own supply of syringes?

    It was wicked cool man....the drum just rolled and rolled and the colors were psychedelic. And then the bug eyed man came out of the center and licked my big toe. Wild and crazy party man.

    I went by this four different times in the last month for work. Not sure I can bring myself to do it again on my time...... but you never know.

    It's not like it's in New York City or something... :huh

    And then you have the option of going to any of 234 other places in the state. :lol3

    Nice. :clap I'm glad to see this finally move. I had hoped to get down to Belmont myself after work today. Now that won't happen. Unfortunately, the new tag is just a little too far for today. But I'll be looking for new opportunities....

    I wouldn't let it sit for too long. There's only 233 more to go (really 232 since White Park doesn't have a sign). :ricky
