Title: First State Photo Tag
Post by: JReazor on February 13, 2009, 12:01:46 am
I've been checking out some of the photo tags in regions 1, 2 and 4 over the past couple days. It looks like a lot of fun and we seem to have a fair number of members from the great Diamond State and surrounding areas so what do you say? Any interest? Delaware is a small state, we should be able to turn tags over pretty quickly.



View Larger Map


Standard rules apply:
  • YOUR BIKE MUST BE IN THE PHOTO. Attempt to reproduce the original tag photo
  • NO FILE PHOTOS. You are not allowed to use existing photos from previous rides/trips either to get the current tag or to place a new tag
  • NO TRAILERS, TRUCKS, ETC. You must ride your bike to the tag (yes, it's been done before, hence the rule)
  • The first person to POST a photo of their bike at the tag location, gets to pick the next tag location. It's not who gets to the tag first, it's who POSTS THE PHOTO FIRST. Might be wise to learn how to post photos from your cell phone while on the road...
  • You may take a photo of a new tag on your way to (hopefully) getting the current tag (same day), but other than that exception, use of any photo taken prior to getting the current tag is forbidden
  • PICK INTERESTING TAG LOCATIONS. Pick spots that are fun to get to, have some historical interest, weird/zany, whatever, but consider what clues will be needed to find it. If you make it too obscure, the game stalls. Better to keep the tag moving than having people searching for a tree in the forest
  • Tags must be with in the State of Delaware - Elkton and Kennet Square are close but not close enough
  • The new tag must be posted within 24 hours of grabbing the old one. After 24 hours the previous tag is up for grabs again


I'll start us off easy, so easy in fact that I won't provide a clue unless someone asks for one...

 I am not completely sure if "photo tag' means I am to guess/name the location, but if so I would say that is the watch tower at Cape Henlopen.  Assuming that is correct, I will post one.  For a hint I will simply say that it is not far from 13 Curves.

The idea is that you take a pic of your bike in the same location.

This one is not on the Cape. This is #3 of 11. Actually, there are 13 but only 11 are in Delaware. I picked this one because it's extremely easy to ride right up to.

Alright :), now that I have the process straight I will play the game.  Given the coming weather I doubt I will be the first to this one, but we will see.

Nah, I can think of at least 2 weeks worth.  :p

Actually, I have a list of about 30 locations (so far) that I'd like to use. Most of them are south of Lewes though.

You might want to consider adding the rules typical of "tag" games/threads on other boards:

- YOUR BIKE MUST BE IN THE PHOTO. Attempt to reproduce the original tag photo.
- NO FILE PHOTOS. You are not allowed to use existing photos from previous rides/trips either to get the current tag or to place a new tag.
- NO TRAILERS, TRUCKS, ETC. You must ride your bike to the tag (yes, it's been done before, hence the rule).
- The first person to POST a photo of their bike at the tag location, gets to pick the next tag location. It's not who gets to the tag first, it's who POSTS THE PHOTO FIRST. Might be wise to learn how to post photos from your cell phone while on the road...
- You may take a photo of a new tag on your way to (hopefully) getting the current tag (same day), but other than that exception, use of any photo taken prior to getting the current tag is forbidden.
- PICK INTERESTING TAG LOCATIONS. Pick spots that are fun to get to, have some historical interest, weird/zany, whatever, but consider what clues will be needed to find it. If you make it too obscure, the game stalls. Better to keep the tag moving than having people searching for a tree in the forest.

I've been playing "tag" on ADVrider in PA and WV and we also have a Pittsburgh region version going. The rules really do help.

 I think this sound like an interesting thing to do, especially after the "easy" locations are hit.  I am sure that once the weather turns up a bit this thread will see a bit more action.  Heck I am already thinking of TAG locations.

Ok, to simplify...

1. Ride yer bike
2. Post a pic that looks like the previous one
3. Post a new pic
4. Don't do anything that make anyone say "We need a new rule"


Title: Re: First State Photo Tag
Post by: garry on February 14, 2009, 08:31:43 pm

The idea is to use the game as a good excuse to ride, possibly checking out someplace new. Figuring out where the tag is from the photo and clues can be a good challenge too. But, yes, people have actually posted pics of their bike on a trailer (not allowed) or used file photos (not allowed) to attempt to claim or post a new tag.

And be prepared to place a new promptly after getting the current one. I usually have the new location (or multiples candidates) picked out and do it all in one ride. Most people expect the new tag location to be posted within a day or two of getting the current one. Of course, winter slows things down a lot in the northeast.


Title: Re: First State Photo Tag
Post by: pdsgt on February 15, 2009, 12:10:58 pm

It's good to keep current on the posts, even when there's hundreds of 'em. This fall I grabbed the tag in the northern part of the state and moved it down to the south, for winter, only to discover that I'd left it a 100 yards from a previous tag. How embarassing. Fortunately there were plenty of folks to point out my short comings :lol:


It worked for me, as I was quick to pick up the new tag and drop it off elsewhere.  That was fun.  Can't wait to play again when the weather breaks. :thumbsup:

I woke up late this past Sunday, and the wife wanted to go look at houses, so no riding for me or I would have the pic...  :(

Provided the weather is semi-decent in the morning I will try to make the tag.

According to the menu, the prop is from The USS Shangri-La (http://www.chinfo.navy.mil/navpalib/ships/carriers/histories/cv38-shangrila/cv38-shangrila.html).

I ran out of daylight before getting the next tag. I'll try to get it posted early tomorrow.

Can you qualify if you are riding someone else's bike?

I think the intent of the rule is that you ride to the tag. In that light, riding someone else's bike would be OK. Driving to a buddy's house to grab his bike because he lives a block away from the tag would not. Of course, it's all on the honor system anyway. It has to be pretty casual.

At least that's my take. Anyone else have any thoughts?

I just put it on yesterday, but I really like it... it switched the the bike from a dual muffler system to a 4-into-1 system. I thought it was going to be to loud and figured I would hate it, but its not overly loud until I really get on it.

Here is a pic of the other side... now I need to get rid of that big fender...

No. The "I hate you" was to Tony for reminding me of the darkest of days; Jan 4, 2008. The day the music died. Ok, not really... It was the day I crashed. On Rt. 9... a mile, if that, out of Old New Castle. Just past Dobbinsville.

I was hoping someone would so I would have another one to chase.  I did how ever take a ride with a couple friends today.  One just picked up a Sprint ST (nice bike) and the other has a Bergman which appears to be a damn competent scoot.  It may not keep up with the Bandit, but he can carry a case of beer under the seat!!!!!!!!!!

I stopped in the Triumph dealership in Dover last week. They had a couple Sprints on the floor. Damn, they're pretty bikes. Bergers are pretty sweet too. The 400cc ABS model is probably the prefect suburban commuter.

I did not but I did think about it. I used to race 1/10 scale off-road electrics at a little indoor track in New Castle. I was pretty competitive in my class too.

I think about getting back in to it on occasion but the last thing I need is another time/money sink.

 Not sure how long ago you were into it or if you ever messed with off road stuff, but at the risk of helping you spend more $$ we might have to get together one day so you can play with a couple toys.  The rock crawlers (two on the far right) are a blast.

That sounds like fun. I raced a 2WD Buggy, I don't know anything about trucks. Do you have a track near by or is it more of a back yard kind of thing?

I did find my self standing in the middle of G-Force Hobbies (I swear I don't know how i got there) today staring at an Associated RC10 kit.

I might check out Blue Diamond this season. If I get back in, I'd like to start racing again.

Got it!

Delaware Museum of Natural History, Rt. 52

(http://chornbe.com/images/oldtag.JPG)

New tag:

(http://chornbe.com/images/mytag.JPG)


Actually kind of a funny story getting this one... so I checked the last page of the thread, saw the turtle and thought the hint was the brewery thing... Sheesh, I can find this. I know the area! After work I head out to Rt. 52 and a few miles before the museum it hits me... head straight to the museum. They have the animals all over the place.... it must be there! Sure enough, I pull in, see the turtle, line up the shot and head out.

Awesome.

I go to upload and post the pic and figure out too late that it's not the turtle (you asshole!) - it's the bear! SONUVABIATCH! I did what I had to do... I headed back out there to get the bear pic. But hey... this is a rockin' turtle pic, anyway. (notice the lighting differences!)

Nice grab and a good story to go with it.

I didn't remember the bear specifically but I knew they had those statues all over the place at the museum. I figured that's where it probably was. The turtle locked it up. (Damn meetings)

Hmm... hints... hints... Ok, I have no visual clues for you just yet, but, perhaps some text...

* To get there you may need to meet in the center.
* If you ride this man's road, you may found he has connected you with two points, spanning the years and a void, perhaps.
* A tower on the other side of the valley beyond.
* An estate by another other name is still visible...
* Within foraging and hunting distance of the rare Delaware bear.

I'll do visual clues as weather permits. Perhaps I'll take some Saturday AM.

Reazor, seeing as you started the tag game, what about expanding it to included eastern eastern MD from the canal south to the VA border or even the whole delmarva peninsula south of the canal.  We could keep it DE only above the canal just to keep from trying to figure out a border limit where you do not have a hard barrier like the water as you do in the rest of the area.

Current tag

(http://www.pbase.com/image/110932601.jpg)




Where was this? I'm maintaining a map. I'd like to get it on there. If anyone would like to help with that, send me your Google ID and I'll give you access to edit it.


I think I know where the new tag is. I'll try to get it tomorrow after Ephrata if it's still available.

James, if you catch this before getting on the road to ephrata, meeting a few folks at the Avondale Wawa (rt. 41 just south of Rt.1) around 8, or at my house around 7:45. Join in.

Then meeting some folks for lunch at Cheeseburgers in Paradise @ 1-ish.

I was going to make a nice big Western loop home, but meeting people in DEL for lunch might negate that.

Jreazor, the tower is part of the Nemours mansion and grounds, directly in back of A.I. duPont Hospital for Children.  It was used by Alfred I. as a study, but it was designed as a water tower.

Here's the old tag...

This one was interesting. I recognized the ship but not the location. I also couldn't remember her name. It took a little digging but I found it at the 7th St Shipyard in Wilmington (a place to be somebody).

 I have to ask the same thing and suggest that for tags such as that that carry a low probablitity of being widely know that possibly some additional info as to location be included.  I think it is a really cool shot, but do not even know where to start researching where it might be as I am sure would happen to you if I were to find something similar in thw lower part of the state.

Fair enough. This building houses an alliance of artists and the parking lot hosts a weekly farm market. If you're there on May 2nd this year, you just might meet Batman or Spider-man.

(to be honest, this one's a little uninspired. I had a tag all lined up but it turned out to be about half a mile from the previous one. I didn't know that until I found it. I wanted to move it a little farther then that)

I just saw that the ADV guys started a Delaware tag (it wasn't there when I started this one, I checked). Funny thing is that current tag over there is in the same place. Who ever grabs this one could get a 2fer.

Unfortunately, I'm hauling dogs for the next couple of day so I'm stuck with the car. There's no way I'll get all the way down there after work tomorrow or Tuesday.

Back when someone was suggesting expanding the target area to include MD I was thinking it makes more sense to me to divide the area into N and S Delaware, then expanding into MD and PA.  Maybe the Wilmington/Newark folks ride into S Delaware regularly but I don't think folks further north do that much.

I'm keeping half an eye on the ADV game as well. There are a bunch south of Dewey that I'd like to use. I just need to find some free time.

Of course, that'll get to be more of a pain in the ass as we get closer to Summer. Some of them might wait for Fall.

Out of curiousity, what is a fun ride below the ditch?  I don't go down there any more because I don't know any interesting rides there.  Once you've done 9, what else is there?  I would like to visit Assateague sometime but don't look forward to the ride down there.

My friends and I simply string together back roads when we go out riding.  While there are not really any awsome roads down here, we make due with what central/southern De and eastern MD have to offer.  While there are more fun roads to be had in the SEPA area, I still find it fun down here as many of the back road are lightly traveled.  The traffic is far better down this way too unless you happen to need to use Rt1 south bound during beach season on a Friday or north bound on a Sunday.

If it's not a big concern for you, it's probably not a big concern for any one else.

A short grace period seems reasonable to me. Other wise you'll have people grabbing pics of what ever is on the way home just to get a tag up or maybe trying to pass off file photos as new. I kind of think this is a solution in search of a problem. Has there really been a significant delay between someone claiming a tag and putting a new one up?

If that's what you guys want that's fine with me, I'll change the rules in the first post. It just seems like an unnecessary complication to me.

Well you'll have a nice ride to the new tag spot...  :D

Tag...

(http://www.decycles.com/pics/tag/tag.jpg)

New Tag location...

(http://www.decycles.com/pics/tag/newtag.jpg)

***Tag selection/reason***

I picked this new location based off the last tag, when I was getting the new tag I had a sandwich and was talking to one of the owners, his father and him own it together. His father was the original owner of "The Dog House", it was his actual house and he opened a hotdog place out of it...

When the guy I met today was 11, his father used to take him fishing in the lake outback of the "Cedar Creek General store", His father told him he was going to buy the place if it was ever for sale and always talked about buying it. Well in 2000 the kid was living in Arizona and his father called him and told him he bought the place and he said he couldn't believe it... in 2004 the father asked his son to come back and help him run it and he moved back and has been running it since...

On the wall there were pictures and newspaper clippings, one of the was of the father behind the bar at the "Stone Balloon" in Newark, I'm not sure if he ever owned part of that or not, but there was a concert poster with the article too... I forgot to ask him about that when I was there...

That was a cool shop with good sandwiches and I will be stopping there again... probably often when I get down that way...  :thumbsup:

Nice tag, however I did curse you  :crazy: when I saw it as it puts a kink in the ride planned for tommorow.  The only good point is I should be able to Keep teh ADV tag as far south as possible in teh state.

  As far as this tag, I'll just wait until the tag moves south again.  I have come up there once for a tag, but it is not really worth the trip for me to deal with the traffic in northern DE.  I do not really enjoy riding up there, it feel like I am commuting as I would head up there on a weekday morning.

 The tag for ADV is to the south west, we plan on moving it to the south east corner tommorow and we going to take teh STN tag with it.  I'll keep my eye out for the tag to move out of the cities.

Next...

Pauline Betz won the Delaware state championship just up the road from here in 1944. She was also our national champion that year.

*NOTE*
This tag is within the confines of a state park. There is a small fee to get in. A shot of the sign at the entrance will be accepted if you don't want to part with the green backs.

Here are a couple more shots from the grounds...

Some of the tags have a brief description but not all. I agree, it is interesting to get some history around the locations. I was born and raised here and I've learned a bunch of new stuff from this thread.

I don't know if you saw it but there is a zoomable map on the first page that shows most of the locations. It's not entirely up to date but it will be soon.

Welcome and feel free to grab the tag next time you're visiting your folks.  :bigok:

02TAC, JReazor, Jason, it was good to meet you gentlemen on Saturday.  I'm going to have to keep Helen's in my mind for future reference.  The sausge I ate for lunch was great and I picked up the pork chop sandwich to have as dinner.  About 9 pm Saturday my heart slowed to about 2 beats per minute and the end seemed near but it was worth it.  Hope to see you all again.

This giant doctor's bag is visible from DE 7 (though I was by it a thousand times and never noticed it), but you can't get here from there.  :headscratch:

took a quick jaunt over to byler's, fought the rain along the way, and then headed north.

i'm sure most have seen this one, but maybe a few missed it earlier this month and can take a ride there now.

ran to a cop on the way back down route 9 - i was doing 62 in a 50...for some reason i thought it was a 55.  anyways, he was cool about it, we talked for a few minutes, and then each headed our own way.  all in all a nice little 75 mile ride.

Good call, you can't ignore those instincts.

I rode right past the last tag not long after it was posted but it was POURING rain at the time. I didn't feel like stopping and wasn't about to take my camera out of it's water resistant case. I've had almost no free time since then. It looks like my schedule should ease up in another 2 or 3 weeks (maybe).  :crazy:

Once that happens, I think someone mentioned Hooters (the restaurant)?

There are a few of them clustered in the same area but I think this is the easiest one to get close to. If this one is blocked, another one from the same vicinity can be substituted. In the interest of full disclosure, I work for the company that put them there.

They're usually found with in site of one of these.

This is the bridge that I originally thought it was. As you can see, they don't look anything alike.

This is also our new tag (I took the pic, might as well use it). It's named for a near by facility run by the Delaware Nature Society.

(http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2566/3759099990_ccde3c027b.jpg)

BTW: These tags were a great excuse to ride some of the best roads in the state but be careful out there. Lots of those roads including the best parts of Centerville Rd were pretty dirty today. Lots of leaves, broken branches and what appeared to be shredded bark mulch off of the tire lines.

Saturday, I was out tearing up 82 and some of the roads south and east of Kennett and they were all, universally, very dirty and rife with washout, branches, etc.

The map in the first post is up to date. My next project is to add all of the pics and user names to it. At the rate I'm working on it I might get caught up by the end of the year.

Got back, around 10:30, from some volunteer stuff I do and figured what the heck; why not a run to Lewes. I got treated to a very nice light show up north on the way back.  Are you getting a good storm this evening?

It can be found mere feet from this historic marker.

I am pretty sure the next locale will be closer to you.  There are more taggers in the northern portion of DE, so every once in a while it is nice to bring it south.

After missing the PA one this morning (Burlington Bristol Bridge) I decided to take ride to Delmar DE. Needless to say my GF wasn't very happy with me telling her we were going on a 350+ mile trip to take a picture. I almost gave up on the ride down here. There was lots of shore traffic and straight roads. Thinking we would be Bruced or not we continued on anyway and took the following pics. (didn't want you guy's to think we were poor sports)
The tag:
(http://i553.photobucket.com/albums/jj373/502Jet/014.jpg)
The High Ball (just so you know what the sign was for):
(http://i553.photobucket.com/albums/jj373/502Jet/012.jpg)
Stop down and check it out, lunch or a drink at the little sports bar across the street from the train,  say hi to Tiffany. I explained the whole game to her. Tell her Mike and Linda said HI!
I should have the next tag posted in a few hours on the ride back north toward Jersey.
Ps: your lucky the dragstrip is closed today. :lol:

Post by: KAWAMIKIE on August 01, 2009, 11:55:40 pm
We did 356 miles today, finding the train car. I'm glad I didn't use the train just north of there cause I see it was already used. We had a great time riding around Delaware and into Maryland. We stopped for dinner at a BBQ joint in Dover, it was very good and cheap. On our way back home we tried to stay off 1 and 13 and took the following tag. Clue for now is it's south and east of Dover.

No we didn't.
There were people walking by and we asked them the name of the road, they told us the guy was in there.  I was thinking the guy must be nuts with lawn ornaments like these and wanted to get out of there.
I'm sure he's an interesting character.

  No, I have been in there before, was riding with someone else and did not have time for a story.

  Part of the ride also involved (my fellow rider needed a part for his Nightster) a stop at the HD worship center in Seaford.  They do have some nice self powered monuments to chrome on the floor, but for me the cost/value just is not there.  I looked (for the second time) at the XR1200. Nice bike, but no where near the bike my 02 Bandit is and no comparison at all to a 1250 Bandit.  This eval is not based on the simple fact that the Bandit has more power (power is not my concern), it is based on fit, finish, and the fact that carrying a passanger on the XR would be out of the question.  Yes there is a back seat - sort of - but I think any one over 50lbs would be too big.  The XR looks like it would be a fun ride, but it also looks cobbled together. HD has the right idea with it, but the execution is a bit off even if it were not around $2K more than a Bandito. .

Woodland Ferry just outside of Seaford

I did go for a ride while I was there. It was my first trip on a ferry on the Bike. It was kind of an odd sensation.

New tag...

30 seconds with Google should make this pretty easy to find. The place first opened as an opera house in the 19th century and burned down twice in the early part of the 20th.

Oops........My bad. :lol:
I got breakfast after taking the photo. I posted from The D&D up the road from the tag.
Still plenty of ride time left today.
So here's your new tag.
It shouldn't need any explanation.

Is it within the rules to snag tags on someone else's bike?

Is it within the rules to snag tags on someone else's bike?

From Page 2 of this thread.



I think the intent of the rule is that you ride to the tag. In that light, riding someone else's bike would be OK. Driving to a buddy's house to grab his bike because he lives a block away from the tag would not. Of course, it's all on the honor system anyway. It has to be pretty casual.

At least that's my take. Anyone else have any thoughts?

I can't imagine why you would be interested in a 'Busa considering the fire breather you're used to riding.

After getting the tag I rode out Woodland Beach. Thought it looked familiar took pics anyway. Good thing I took a back up photo.


Built by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and opened in 1942. It was once the main north/south crossing, but it has since been upstaged by a more modern designed crossing near by. Falling into disrepair it was almost torn down but due to local opposition the bridge was to be saved. It was  rehabilitated between 1998 and 2001.

I was just looking through the thread and found out that I recycled this tag.  The trip from Lancaster to Delaware is not the most pleasurable so I do not think I will be heading back to re-do the new tag.

My tag can be ignored if need be. Or it could be used to move the game along. :D

It's a small state. That was bound to happen eventually.

BTW: What route do you take from Lancaster? 30 and 41 suck but 896 is usually tolerable and there are a few routes that will put you in MD just west of Newark. I don't remember the numbers but they're not bad.

I took 41 and 30 back home and boy did it suck.  I finally got some speed when I was following an 18 wheeler.  The 4 wheelers were poking along.

At Ephrata today a guy told me about 82 to 100 to 282 as a nice loop.  I will try that next time I am in the area.

That's all part of my favorite local loop. Next time I'm heading out for a few hours of local riding, I'll holler up for you. I live in West Grove and can be on the Delaware section of 82 in about 10 minutes, and that road is some of the best local riding. It was also part of my daily commute for 5 years running from the house to the office in Wilmington.  :thumbsup:




Tag acquired. Good one James. It's all but invisible coming up on it in one direction 'til you're even with it and looking into the next turn. It smacks you right in the face from the other direction.   :thumbsup:

New tag. No hints on this one since It's got a sign. Cute kid optional. Had my daughter out on the ride with me. She's too little for any of our gear except the helmet and gloves. I gotta do some shopping. Especially since the rugrat LOVES the twisties but I don't wanna hit them for real without the right gear on her.

I know the rule is 24 hours for the new location, but I am asking for a short extension as I will not have the new location pic until Sunday afternoon. It will be taken during an already planned ride and will be moving a good distance (for DE anyway).  Reazor, is this OK with you?  Everyone else?  With that asked, here is the grab shot from about 11 hours ago - did not have time to post it before leavign for work.

Seeing as the line it is part of forms the boundry between the states I think it qualifies as being in the state.

According to the 1994 boundary agreement between Delaware and Maryland, the surviving Survey stones continue to mark this portion of the two states’ common boundary line.

I checked the entire thread before posting that.....  then I checked 02's posts - that pic is in "random", not the tag thread.  Thanks for making me think I'd lost my mind, dude.

How did I get so close?....  I just kept those loud pipes singing and everyone let me do whatever I wanted!  Seriously, I just pulled up, took a few pics and left, that's all.

OK, so you ladies seem a bit timid to go get this one...  you want a new tag?  I have another option or two...

IF the boss does not have something for me and IF the rain lets up I might run up to the track during the race and grab the tag. Dover is actually a nice place to be while teh raceis running, but just make sure you are out of town at least a 1/2 hour prior to the finish.

How about a clue :headscratch:

It was not easy to find but very findable.
Think when and where it was built and you will find it.
It's only 122 miles away. :bigok:


Title: Re: First State Photo Tag
Post by: 02Tac on October 03, 2009, 09:14:38 am
No prob,

 According to Google maps it is 13 miles south of the last location and here is a bit of info about the place.

This place was built in 1780, on land donated by Philip someone-or-other, a prominent political figure in Kent County, Delaware. Someone-or-other, who had recently become a Methodist, wanted to build a center for the growing Methodist movement in Delaware.

This place is the oldest surviving church building in the United States built by and for Methodists. But it earns its title as the "Cradle of Methodism" because of what happened here in 1784.

The new location.  Kawamikie, you would have either passed this one or run right into it depending on what route you would have taken to get to the Barret's Chaple tag.  For an additional hint, this spot did not exist 6-8 months ago.

However, I don't typically start out in the rain when riding to work. I'm not worried about riding in the rain, but I don't want to have a.. ahem....

It's not a matter of the location - it's all 100% logistics. Someone go ahead and post up a new tag. Consider it free-for-all. Yesterday my son's truck died and I had to ferry him around in the AM before going to work so I didn't bother going home to get the bike before heading to the office. Today I'm Mr. Mom and won't be able to get out before 1pm or so. Son is out looking at vehicles right now and has my car.

I'll head out this afternoon on the bike to get the new tag if someone hasn't posted a new tag by them.

Sorry guys :(

Below is a pic of the FailBear!

Also, if that sign is where I think it is, we must have been passing each other all day long... I've been waiting to pull up on a tag and find someone else taking their pic  :lol:

yeah, the weather would be my fault... after riding in 30 - 40 degree weather for the last two weeks, yesterday I finally hooked my heated gloves back up... so of course it would be 65 degrees out today  :rolleyes:

I left work a little after 3:00 am, I'm kind of tired and it's raining. What's the first thought that pops in to my tiny little pea brain? "Hey, the camera's in the tank bag. This would be the perfect time to grab the tag!"

Iron Hill Museum
(http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2736/4094457487_08a0d42f0e.jpg)

I was on my way to get the new tag when I managed to run out of gas on 896. I pushed the bike with the lights on (to avoid certain death) to the gas station only to find out that there wasn't enough juice left in the battery to start the engine. I managed to bump start it on the third try on Chestnut Hill Rd and came home. I do not yet have the new tag but I did not get bruced!

New tag tomorrow... or today. Whatever. I'm going to bed.

Ya know... you could have just called when you ran out of gas, but  :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup: for digging in and gettin' it done.

Heh! I left work not too long before you, but alas I was in the car because I spent most of the ride (back) in to work on the phone. (sigh)

Nice one and it definitely counts. That rule (as I interpret it anyway) effectively puts the old tag back in play to keep the game from stagnating while waiting for the new one to go up. If some one else posted up in that 45 minutes, that preson would own the right to post the new tag. Since that didn't happen, yours is good.  :thumbsup:

O2 watch out for that parking lot.
It's still snow covered except a small spot all the way in the back.
I couldn't turn around up front so I rode the 50 or so many yards to the back of the lot
and turned around on clear pavement. Rode back out of the lot with no incidents

I was thinking they where going to leave that gate open for awhile but apparently they plowed the fields and locked that gate right away! That area used to allow public acess but they started locking that gate after the Natural Resources Officer that lived there moved out. They probably are afraid somebody will burn it down.

Jaded or emotionally scared?

The part of 9 that is 15 minutes away from 82 does suck. The rest of it isn't particularly twisty but it is a pleasant ride through the wetlands.

Another clue. This one will pretty much give it away but that's ok if it gets things moving...

Edgar Allen Poe used to pass through Newark pretty regularly. Rumor has it that he wrote "The Raven" here and that he put a curse on either the town or The Deer Park after falling while climbing out of his carriage.

The tag is not at The Deer Park, it's on the other end of town on a street just south of another street, each street is mentioned in one of the first 2 clues.

Hehe..At first I was worried; because I wasn't able to see the room on the shoulder to park..I was thinking I'd have to hop up on the sidewalk or something  You know how Da Man is in Newark.
Not until you get right up on it do you see the shoulder area directly behind the bridge support.

Anyway, it worked out.

I was thinking the same thing before I set the tag. I almost didn't use it because I wasn't sure if there was a shoulder.

The new tag isn't quite on my way home but it's close enough. It might not last through tomorrow.

Ok - I tried...I really did.
I rode the road twice; once in each direction.  I just did not see the tag from the road.  I did see tanks that look JUST like the one in the pic - but they were not in any pond.  So I am pretty sure that if I pulled into a certain parking lot, I might have had to walk around to find what I was looking for...But it was a nice night for a ride; so I kept going.
  All the fruities were out on their bicycles, and started to piss me off.  I peeled off onto 9 Gates Rd, and headed over to Cossart Rd....Haven't been down there in a couple of years, and after the post here I had some motivation.
That road surface sucks.  Even with the suspension on the ST, it sucks.  That said, I was surprised at the lack of grafitti - the last time I was there it looked like a gay parade was just through there.  
  A big black Mercedes did roll up on me quick - and I swear that there was no driver in it....Then I saw the tuft of blue hair, and let the old lady pass  :D

Post by: chornbe on April 16, 2010, 06:23:09 am
Yes, the road crosses into PA and maintains the same number. It's Delaware's only twisty road.  :twofinger:

The tag isn't right there on the road, but it's visible from the road immediately after one of the very, very few stop signs. The road follows a water way and carries a generic name for a while indicating such.

If no one snags it by the end of the weekend I'll give away the location.

It has caught my eye for years and always thought it would make a cool photo. I feel bad now, considering I thought I had the last one picked out and scoured the roads before I had to enlist some help. I thought this one was an easy one but maybe it just appeals more to my own sense of "pic worthy" and aesthetic than others' :(

Sorry.

To be fair - you needed to drive about 100yds off of the intersection of Yorklyn and 82.  I didn't notice it until after I went through the intersection, and continued north on Creek Mill Rd.

Google Maps is not a help, as it still shows the old structure, which was some kind of oil/chemical storage tank.  Looks like this just resides in the old foundation.

Couldn't snag it before because of work, but today we woke up to no power and no water, so since I was going to be late anyway, I figured today was the day. Once water and power were restored (ah, ain't it great living in the boonies...?), I buzzed through a quick shower, got dressed for work and suited up to ride in, and headed out.

The grab:

Riding around there with an old(er)ster the other day, I learned that is an old fiberboard mill.  He said he used to make deliveries to the snuff mill too but doesn't see any buildings left.

Needless to say I think I know where this is but don't care to take up the game again right now.

Probably. Holler if you're heading up. We'll grab lunch at The Dog House or something.

As an aside, that latest tag is now a collector's item; it's the last DE (and probably PA) photo tag you're likely to see with my Sportster in it!  :lol:

Spent the better part of the day last week to eat crabs at Sambo's.  Didn't see the tag, any good riding roads, or much else that inspired me to return soon besides the food and dockside scenery.  No offense, just the riding west and north is so much better for my riding preferences.

I've opined before that having a delaware specific photo tag is a mismatch of north and south communities.  For me a much better grouping would be nordel, ne md, and se pa.


Title: Re: First State Photo Tag

Actually the PA tag doesn't make much sense to me either but there seems to be enough interest there that the tag wanders all over the state.  Wonder if Texas and California have state-wide tags.  Texas comes to mind from traversing it last month.  900 miles edge to edge.

Yes I could if it meant a lot to me.  I was just responding to the post lamenting that the nordel folks don't chase south-of-the-canal tags very regularly.  It doesn't offend me to have a delaware tag thread but the reality is it doesn't work very well when the tag is south.

I was hoping to get the tag this past weekend. I was at US 13 Dragway for the bracket finals on Friday and Saturday. Got done at the track late Saturday night and headed straight home. It was too cold and dark and I had a 150 mile ride ahead of me.  If my buddy didn't make it to the third round I would have had more time.

The tag is slowly working its way north. Pretty sure I turn east at Lil Creek for this one.  Maybe  :crazy: if I move it above the canal next Monday one of the northern players will grab it.  If so, I will not drag it back down here for a while.  :D

Seeing as NO ONE from above the canal wanted to come south, I brought the tag north.  Additionally, I have no plans to drag it back south anytime soon, so have fun with it.  :twofinger:   I have placed it WELL north and in a place where the riding is fun.  A yard or two more and I would have been out of bounds!  :D

Sorry O2, I really did not have too much of a problem riding to the tag (never took the feet off the pegs) so I figured it wouldn't be tough for anyone if the connie could do it!
But then I could have been having a flashback moment from my old enduro days when I ran big fat pigs in the woods and sand
(Husky WR 400) and the best method of dealing with sand was to watch and pick your best line and gas it!
Also I did warn you! :)

Post by: tthompsr on April 19, 2011, 12:26:32 pm
Thanks 02, Was going to post a crash report when I find out what the Insurance Co. was going to do but here goes.
 After work on the 14th I decided to go for a ride instead of going home to a empty house, (my wife and son were out of town for a few days.)I geared up but decided not to wear my riding pants as I felt it was to warm for them.
(first mistake) I headed for my favorite local loop over in Maryland, On Golts road outside of Galena Md. (which I've been on many times) I came up on a downhill, off camber, 30 mph right hand curve, that I didn't realize was tar slick.
I hit the front brake at the top of the hill to slow down for the curve but what I didn't realize was the front wheel locked up and slid down the hill about 75 feet (second mistake), When I leaned the Bike over for the curve the Bike came out from under me and low sided Hard! It was so violent that it shattered the right side saddle bag,and took off both rider and pass. foot pegs. I wound up on my hands and knees sliding down the road,I felt the pain in my knees almost instantly(see first mistake) and rolled to my back and then was sliding downhill head first, the motorcycle then slid till it hit the shoulder of the road and then started cartwheeling till it was stopped by a small stand of trees. I slid off into the same shoulder and came to a stop maybe about a dozen feet off the road.
When I stood up the first thing  I saw was all the pieces of my bike everywhere, I followed the trail to the trees and my heart sunk, my C14 was all busted up laying among a few small trees that it knocked down.
I removed my gear and checked myself out, the only injury that I could see was the road rash to my knees (I realized later that my foot was under the bike when it slammed to the road but lucky for me I just got some bruising from it no broken bones).
I called 911 and told them that I had a crash but didn't need medical attention, they determined where I was which didn't take them long when I told them what road I was on. (When I told the dispatcher the road I was on the next question from him was are you standing next to a pond?which I was)  I then walked over to the bike to check out the damages, it didn't look to bad laying on the ground but when I tried to stand it up I realized that the left handlebar was snapped off and hanging. I got the bike up on its wheels and turned the ignition off (it wasn't running)turned the key back on and was able to start it back up and then drove it out of the trees which wasn't easy with a broken handle bar on the clutch side.
When I got the bike to the shoulder I got a good look at the damages :( I had broke all the plastics up front with the exception of the front fender and the headlight plastic,gauge cluster was broke,both mirrors were gone,both rider and pass.foot pegs gone, both saddlebags were off the bike,one saddle bag was completely in pieces and the other had a big hole in it.The saddlebag that was in pieces held my laptop in it inside it's bag which protected it.( it still works after tumbling down the road)
AMA roadside assistance sent a rollback out to me, they where there in 30 min. the driver beat the Sheriff to the location!
The Sheriff arrived about 10 min later and took my information for the accident report. She surprised me when she told me that she knew right away where my accident was as she had flipped her patrol car in the same curve over a year ago on a rainy night while She was responding to a call. She also mentioned that they get a few accidents at this location.
After I was done with the sheriff I helped the rollback driver load up the Bike and he took me down to the bike shop to drop the bike off. I was surprised to find the Service Mgr waiting over an hour after closing time to put the bike inside (when I had talked to them earlier the plan was to leave it outside).
Just heard from from the Insurance Co. the Bike is totaled and they will get back to me within a couple of days so it looks like I'll be Bike shopping soon.
here's some pics

Haven't got the saddlebags yet, when the dealer pulled the bike out of the crate they found no locks for the bags.
They ordered a set of locks and will install the locks then ship them to me.

Yep... what is interesting about this tag is that, despite the address right there on the gate, if you are navigating using the GPS or Google Maps you're still a couple of blocks from the location.

If the new drop is above the canal I may make a run for it, tho my weekend is looking busy.

Being too far south isn't an issue but I have a tendency to burst in to flame if I get to close to consecrated ground. I might risk it if the tag lasts until the weekend though.

And here's the Drop! To meet 02's criteria this tag is in New Castle County,But still south of the Canal.
 This is a fairly new park, and to get the tag you do have to enter the park!
And as you can see by the little sign no after hours tagging!
The first Pic is the tag.

Reazor, can we get an amendment to the rules addressing placing tags in time / access limited areas and what is considered acceptable is a tag is dropped in such a place.  This is an understood and unwritten rule in the other games I play, but apparrently needs to be spelled out here.


I don't see the need for an amendment. Historically the person that set the tag would specify an alternate if he thought it was warranted and the same person would make the call on wether or not a variation was acceptable. I don't think that's in the rules, that's just the way it's been done. This is supposed to be fun and we're all adults here. Come to an agreement and move on.

If a tag game is a source of stress for anyone, they're doing it wrong.

It is located just before El Bruceo!   :facepalm:

The grab was in Yorklyn DE. If you are headed east(ish) on Creek rd (82), there is a spot where you turn right at a steel tressel bridge tostay on Creek rd. Go straight through the bridge and the grab spot is on your left.

Well, I tried to find out how my GPS shot is different from anything else that specifies the location of a given tag. Hereis the answer I received from TT.

"Well Jerry so be it, and you think I've buried the tag before JUST WAIT YOU AIN"T SEEN NOTHING BEFORE!"

It would appear that our simple (and quite enjoyable until recently) riding game is now going to be a "I will make it really hard to find the tag" game.

As you said TT; "so be it". All you are going to do is bring the game to a stand still.

Nope, it is just waiting to be grabbed. This tag game always slows a bit when the tag is moved south. Someone will be along at some point to grab, until then it just waits.

The new spot is up north to hopefully get the northies back into the game.  As far as I know it is the only paved RC track in the state.  I have never seen the acccess gate closed, but if it is a shot from of the entrance (there are a couple) will be fine.

I was at the tag literally, no more then 10 minutes after the grab was posted AND I was all set to post from my phone while I was there. On top of that, I was probably cruising around the other section of the park looking for the spot when it was posted.

On the up side, I got to take the Sprint on it's first dual-sport excursion.

We have had a few darn nice days since this drop. I am starting think you ladies sold your motorcycles and bought Harleys!  :twofinger:


I've been out a lot, even down in that drop area, but forgot about it. Funny thing is, with the couple mild days we had, I saw a lot more pirates than anything else on the road. I have been doing some gigs with a 3rd band that is more harder classic rock. I don't really have any "rocker" garb to wear anymore, so I went down to Payne's leather to see if I could find a cheap vest (which I did, 18 bucks for a vest that would do little for road protection, but is fine for wearing on stage). There was a group of HD riders there, maybe 6-8. I pull up on the Connie with my day-glo yellow jacket and full face helmet, on my nice quiet bike, got off, gave them a nod, and they totally snubbed me. No acknowledgment, no return nod, nothing. It was pretty funny. I'm surprised they didn't knock my bike down or spit on the seat lol.  

On my way home on that ride, a guy on a BMW pulled onto the road I was on, ahead of me. I was about 100yds behind him and he kept going faster and faster, and I figured I'd stay with him. He finally backed off when we got up to 100.

As far as the weather goes, I'll take it while it's here. You know that at some point it's going to get too cold and the snow will show up.


Title: Re: First State Photo Tag
Post by: 02Tac on January 09, 2012, 09:36:37 am
I saw quite a few pirates myself.  Got behind a group when I was on my way to work on Saturday. Four bikes, 3 pirates and and one sport bike (older Ninja I think). Of course, Sportbike was the only one with sense enought to wear a helmet.  For the few miles I was behind them, not once did they fall into a proper staggered riding formation and they rode way to bunched up.  Needless to say, at the first legal opportunity I pass said group.  It was when pulling onto Rt1. You could hear there bikes bellowing from their "safety pipes", but a small twist of the wrist was more than enough to propel the Bandit past them with authority.


Title: Re: First State Photo Tag
Post by: dan88z on January 09, 2012, 12:44:38 pm
There is something satisfying about doing that isn't there? I was behind some girl one day on Rt 9, and she was doing the whole pirate gear shift method- foot on highway peg, take it off, stomp on the heel shifter, put it back on the highway peg repeat til in 5th gear @ 40mph. I sat behind her for about a mile and at the 1st legal passing zone rolled on the throttle just a bit to go around here. I was probably an "asshole ricer" for passing her, but I wasn't in the mood to hear "brap brap brap" at 50mph for the next 10 miles.

I know. I shouldn't even be on that forum anymore, it's for Suzuki Boulevards, 3 bikes ago for me. But there are a lot of good folks on there, half of us don't ride Bullys anymore but stuck around anyway.

Ah, there's a local girl here in State College that goes to quite a few Boulevard get togethers.  She still owns one but a BMW is her "everyday" bike these days.

I haven't really thought it through yet so suggestions are welcome. Some place in the Middletown to Smyrna area might be nice and central for most of us.

A ride would be cool. I'd probably tag along if one happened.

That depends on how much free time I have tomorrow. I'd like to drop it a little further south then this one but I'm not sure if I'm going to be able to get there.

I dropped this one close to home just to get it posted today. On the up side, the tag is in a college town, in spring time. The scenery isn't bad.

You'll probably be tempted to pull on to the bike path to get a better shot. If you do, keep a sharp eye out for campus police. Those jack-booted thugs were everywhere today and they're usually eager to prove their worth.
