    Mine does, don't know why yours wouldn’t. I didn’t take any of those routes, but that’s beside the point.

    Interesting video. Oil rush town from a bygone era. Thanks for sharing.

    We did a ghost town ride about ten years ago and Quay was one of our stops.

    I would say Quay and Gray Horse both qualify for Town Tags, they are ghost towns.
    Looking at the rules in Post #1 you might question that but see Post #111 where Dirt2007 clarified the use of ghost towns is legal.

    I was in Gray Horse in late January, rode all day on that 37 degree day.
    Moved the Okie Tag from Cleveland and was going to move it to the old Gray Horse WPA School as a follow up to the Pershing WPA school. The gate was closed and everything overgrown around it so there was no good access for a picture, so I just made it a longer ride and moved the tag to Bluestem Lake by Pawhuska.

    Did you go to the cemetery in Gray Horse? That was interesting also.
    They also have a nice new Pow Wow arena but I could not find a sign to identify it so I thought that it would be too obscure to use as a tag.

    No fair reading and remembering the rules! :rofl Clearly after re-reading the rules ghost towns and even villages are qualified tags; thanks for the refresher.

    I did go to the cemetery, some real history there. I didn’t wander around the old school because it was so overgrown and the gate was locked. Would be interesting to go during a pow wow.

    I edited the rules this morning to clarify ghost towns. Just need to find some signage.

    That makes for a great stretch of scenic riding with some nice twisties. I try and take 277 from Chickasha every chance I get, which is another section of good riding.

    Bug Tussle was a tad disappointing. Signs for Bug Tussle were Slim Pickens but I’d rode to far to get there not to go ahead and tag it.

    There was a concrete block building at Albert Rd and Bug Tussle Rd that had ‘Bug Tussle’ painted on it. Is it no longer there?

    The building is there but I didn’t see any lettering on it, Think it may have been painted over.

    Edit: The lettering shows on google street view. Maybe I just didn’t see it as I was too focused on not letting my bike fall over when taking the street sign pic!
