Forgive me for the noobish question but how exactly is scooter tag played.

Does one simply go to the location the the last persons post and take a picture of them self there? Do they then set a new destination themselves?

When I get my scoot I'll be sure to join in once I learn the rules.

Tag: Rumbi and Rangui, Bonita. Between Allen School Road and Willow Road on the south side of the street in a grassy knoll in front of a shopping center

Surprised this one sat for so long, since a few minutes on Google came up with a hint: http://www.sdcitybeat.com/sandiego/article-10503-experience-1960s-san-diego.html

Note: the tag is the 'fallen house' on top of the building.

Great art installation at UCSD Jacobs School of Engineering. I could not quite figure out the same vantage point that DirtyRat had, but I hope this will suffice, let me know.

Thanks DR, we had to avoid the UCSD fuzz and the physical plant folks in golf carts, and sneak the scoot up there!

I spent 45 minutes (at work) trying every on line trick to find this place... but to no avail. DirtyRat got me started on it... and he went out looking for it... that was yesterday and I have heard nothing from him since! Nice tag spot. I am STUMPED!

Hey, TC [URL=http://s188.photobucket.com/user/ks7877/media/misc/smilies/Wave.gif.html]External inline image provided by member with no explanatory text[/URL] The tag location came up when I googled the address number + San Diego Aztec. It's gorgeous outside - sunshine and blue skies - a beautiful day to go for a ride. A damn shame that I can't go get it myself. Hope things pick up at work.

D'oh! I dont follow team sports, so I'll research what that means, unless someone with no day job gets to the tag first

Heh... way to go, Karen. I finally figured it out, and told Russel where to go get it, but he's been working his day gig.

Next: no tank jokes, just a cool photo.

Hint: many of the riders on the Vespa Motorsport Toy Run last weekend likely drove by this tank on the way home from the event.

I hadn't ever seen a sign like this before, so here we go. By a Preserve in a valley. If this is to strange or hard I could post other Tag. Happy hunting.

Since I can't find this with a simple google search, I can say I found it by surprise riding surface streets back home after the Mission Gorge tag. I live in L.G. The tag is in S.D.

another hint...
saw all three giraffes today - one very tall, two kinda small

if you're hungry, you may want to eat at Guisado's near the former House of Motorcycles. the view of giraffes is pretty good from there, though you may have to look a little to the West.

if you're not hungry, you could just get your bumper repaired. though, apparently they expect a car to be there if you ask how much to get your bumper done... curious.
