    New rule....NO TAGGING CHURCHES ON SATURDAY NIGHTS!
    It's rather offensive to show up at a Mennonite church in full biker leather as church is just beginning, and ask them to move their horse and buggys so you can get a clear shot.

    The location: The mennonite church on Hopkin's Gap.
    Next to the church is Long Run road.
    In the future, please try to make your tags actually ON the dirt road.
    I once had my speedometer cable fall off the Yamaha, and reattached it in this parking lot.

    Also, I have edited the rules in the first post of this thread to improve game flow and reflect what I believe is a fair compromise between the positions of the players. Feel free to discuss them, and I'll be happy to change them if anyone feels they need further adjustment.

    Valley Dual Sport Tag-O-Rama Map

    I was away this weekend but will be keeping up with this in the future. Looks like there was some action while I was gone. If "last stand" is free tonight, I will dodge deer by highbeam headlight.

    Also for all you map-freaks out there, check out this free orthophotography, making school bus identification easy.

    Clues:
    This tag is located West of the only "Volcano" remnants in this county. This low water crossing is located along a three digit route where the sum of the second and third digits equal the first. This section is named for the "bridge" in the shots.

    NEW CLUE: It is near one of the first Mennonite churches to hold Sunday schools in 1869

    Tag Shot: (Could not get lighting right so this is the one "With the Bike" Use other photos for better ID)

    I searched for the damn thing for an hour this morning.
    It's got to be somewhere around Mole Hill, or perhaps Spring Hill or Mossy Creek, based on the lava reference.

    I thought it would be 752, but that road is all paved.

    743 and 734 are in the area as well, but I thought they were paved too. My GPS kept falling off, so I eventually put it in the tank bag and just went exploring.
    I did find two high water crossings, but none on mathmatically correct route numbers. Did find some nice places to place another tag, though.

    Anyone else got any ideas? I'm sure it's not that hard--I'm just really bad at this game.:cry

    The tag is on a section of the road which is dirt but the majority of this route is paved. I would have placed it farther out on a more "Dirt" road but I was trying to get back and out of the snow at the time. It is on one of the roads you did not ride but listed. Hope that helps others out.

    Sometimes this river is wet, other times it is ___

    TAG:

    The road will take you to a new height if you go up the hollow on this 2 digit road that totals 10.

    Got it! Just may have to make a run for it...

    On second thought, I'd rather not dodge deer at night. Did the KTM make it?

    No matter...it can get sort of complicated and is easy to forget. Just hold on to it until the next tag you place.

    Doesn't look like I will have any daylight to ride out there until this weekend. Have at it!
