    We use a simple TRIPOD mechanism to frame our shot... Jus Sayin!

    Randomly found this site on our way home from the 2nd Saturday Ride-2-Eat in Houston. AL!

    I don't know if it helps preserve the life of the "flag" but I've found that a heavy stock piece of white paper behind "flag" in a page protector adds a bit more "heft" and somewhat reduces the blowing about of the "flag". My next try will likely include placement of some small magnets in the bottom of the page protector to add heft and where steel is present add an means to reduce "flutter". Transport of the "flag" is easier if one has a topbox and/or mostly empty saddlebags.

    When it comes time to head to Montana in June my topbox and saddlebags will be pretty full. My thinking is to put the "flag" at the top of the topbox to facilitate easy access to find more challenges enroute. I'm betting that by the end of 6 months my "flag" will still be pretty tattered.

    I have a tripod, but it doesn't help to leave it in the garage. I also need to figure out how to do the delayed picture takin'.

    How are people doing for points? Is there somewhere we can see a tally of what has been approved? I am really enjoying this!

    I do not believe any judging is taking place yet. The folks running this event are still developing software that will be used to enter and track the progress of contestants.

    I, for one, am not keeping score. I seem to be having trouble speling. I expect that I should block print the term of interest and check-off (or better yet write down the location name associated with each) letter. For example, I forgot I need three 'Ds', so I get to go out for a little ride tomorrow to Denton for another 'D'. There is a very nice little diner in town, but I don't know if I'm up for going to an eating establishment yet.

    What he really meant to say I think is, "I need Four D's!"

    Holy Cow!!! "AND" I will need an "N". I really need to learn to spel. I guess that means a ride to Danbury, Danville, Durham in the near future (all within about 70 mile radius.)

    The "I" towns are a bit more scarce. I was happy to have found my "U" (Union Grove).

    Another Easy Get -- Jus Sayin!

    We do breakfast with the local NAVMC most every Saturday {so this is like shooting fish in a barrel}! We've been supporting the Blue Plate Cafe here in HSV every week since this Covid BS started - sometimes eating in the parking lot. More folks are starting to come to breakfast each week what with 'Jabs' count goin up week-after-week in Alabama! Got mine thru Huntsville Hospital...


    Several/many bikes in a row - doesn't get much easier than that! - My R90S way out there, K's new RS next, beside Mike's Suzuki, Fred's Triumph, Doug's R9T, and John's Bonneville...

    I hope that size doesn't count. I was riding through the country (actually the Uwharrie National Forrest area) and came upon a cross roads with a location sign. I needed another "A" so I hope this truely little Abner will count. If so I think that I can score a bunch more "Ds"; I think that I need around 17 or so.

    The challenge is to "Fall in Line." That looks more like parked side-to-side. Perhaps that means the same thing at ASU?

    According to the Fall in Line challenge - That photo counts and meets the challenge "For this challenge, you must provide photographic proof of 5 or more motorcycle parked or positioned in a line"

    :P

    Instructions are pretty straightforward, Cap! Good Luck with that OCD thing....

    When Team Strange states a requirement, just follow the guidance explicitly. Do not color outside their lines...

    So with the falls and canyon, it has to be in a town/city/state or metro park or can it be a trail eg Bridal Falls Trail inside a park?

    With war items eg Custer, can we do multiples like Fort Custer National Cemetery, Fort Custer Training Center (national guard), Fort Custer Recreational Area and each score 50 points?
