DFW tag

Simple game..... figure out where the picture of the bike was taken.... go there and snap a picture of your bike in the same spot. Post up your photo, and TAG you are it. Then you get to post a picture of your bike somewhere interesting and let others figure out where.

Simple one to get started...

Re: DFW tag

This is popular on several other forums. Susan and I (mainly her scoot in the pics) played on the Modern Vespa forum for the Fort Worth area but nobody else wants to play.

So, we'll probably try this one.

Except I have no idea where this is
(but I have a couple of ideas)

Re: DFW tag

So for DFW are we limiting to those 2 counties or those towns?

hehe, I didn't read anything. I just saw that it was a game and started guessing.

Alright, that makes things a little harder.

Re: DFW tag

Okay, someone remind me to check this thread once I'm at home and can see the pic. We need to give this one some legs. It'd be nice to have a game that doesn't involve how well you can monkey punch into Google.

I'm confused - can you elaborate on the boundaries?

Re: DFW tag

The boundaries are open for common sense interpretation... The gulf coast is obviously not part of the DFW metro area, nor is Lake Texoma. I would consider Denton area to be DFW since north Dallas stretches that far north anyway. Any city or suburb or cow pasture that is near Dallas, Fort Worth or surrounding cities is fair game.

But first you gotta shoot your bike with the last pic feature in view.

Re: DFW tag

Hey Bill, here's your reminder to check from home!

This is going to be a fun game! Might give me something to do on my lunch breaks!

You're just jealous because I've already found it.

Re: DFW tag

You know... I uploaded this to my photobucket site, and now I wonder if it will even work because of the recent activity on the Ducati thread.



Edit.... dang, worth a shot. Alright, time for another approach..... LOL

OK, where is that place?

Maybe provide an address of GPS coordinates when you find it?
