Ok, Long Beach/South Bay Scooterists! I am dying to play tag, and am frustrated by my lack of ability to get up to the LA area to play with the Hollywood-folk. Anyone want to start a game down here? I am borrowing the rules from the LA tag:

* The boundaries are as follows:
To the North: The 105 Fwy
To the East: The 605 Fwy
To the West: The Ocean!
To the South: Orange County

* To start, someone posts a photo of their scooter with a landmark, sign, etc. Clues may be given along with the photo.

* Individually other participants ride to the same place and get a photo with THEIR scooter at the same/similar spot.

* The first person to "tag" the photo by posting their photo with their scooter gets to post the next photo for people to find.

*ADDED: if the person who does not post a new photo within 48 hours, anyone may hijack the tag and start a new photo.

* If no one is able to identify the tag, the poster can give progressively easier clues until someone finally says "AHA!" though please don't post the location of the tag until after someone else has tagged it. The hunt is part of the fun.



I'll start with an easy one to get the ball rolling and hopefully entice you all to get out and Tag me!
This one should be relatively easy to figure out:

Seriously
Nobody but me lives in the LB/South Bay and wants to play tag? Or it it just because it was during the week?
Here's hoping someone gets out and tags me this weekend!

I'll give this "tag" game a try ... here's a pic of my Burgman at the Queen Mary.

Posting photos
Ken,
I've found the easiest way to post photos is to email them. At the top of any topic is a little envelope in the upper right-hand side corner of the topic. If you click on that it will bring up an email address that you can send a photo or reply to post to this string.
The photos will automatically be resized, so it is much easier than trying to resize photos and save them, etc.....

Give that a try. Your message and photo will appear within minutes. A brilliant feature the moderator has built in!
That's how I get all of my photos on there.

Let me know if you still can't get it on.

Don't forget once you post your photo of the Queen Mary, you are "It" and you get to post the next Tag for us to go find. I can't wait!
~Robyn

this might be ruled out by the judges
Here's my pic of the Red Car Museum on Electric Avenue near Main Street in Seal Beach, CA. Even though it's a different angle, I'm pretty sure it's the same location as starvn4speed's.
External inline image provided by member with no explanatory text

Two things:
1) rules in first post say southern border of this tag thread is Orange County (this local is OC)
and
2) don't know if my pic qualifies since I used it in the OC tag thread

starvn4speed - want to go get another tag pic?

Since I'm the OP, I'm just glad someone is playing. We can his tag stand, if you want to post the next tag, we can keep this game going.

I'm ok with a few minutes outside the boundaries, just didn't want to encroach into OC.
I vote: let's play on!

No worries Ken, I'm just happy you joined in the fun!
Do you want to post another tag or leave it to ks7877?
We'll leave it up to you- let us know!
Good job, let's play on!

I like your relaxed approach RobynS. I may have some Long Beach / PV pics but it'll take me a while to locate & post. If either of you want to post another shot before then, go for it! (and Ken: I wasn't trying to bust yer chops, just wanted to avoid some of the whining and carrying on we had in more southerly tag threads.)

no worries ks7877, I feel like a kid who just wanted the neighborhood kids to come out and play- I'm not picky about the rules.....
I just couldn't make it up to LA to play with the Hollywood folks, and was looking for something closer to home.
Ok, 48 hour "rule" will apply! Ks7877- you'll have 48 hours to post the next tag- if not, anyone can "hijack" it with a tag of their own. Cool? That will keep us in the game.
Bring it!

I think that's a great rule suggestion to keep the game moving! I'll defer to starvn4speed this time though. He said he'd like another shot at it and I think everyone's entitled to at least one Mulligan. OK?

Looking forward to this thread picking up some speed (so to speak).

I will try to leave for work early tomorrow, so I can get it.

You two (RobynS and starvn) have tangled with the wrong opponent...ks7877 is the BEST scooter-taggist in the MV stratosphere ! She will work you hard and barely break a scooter-sweat....

Making things a little harder now!
Ok, now that we are in the swing of things. I've cropped the photo to
obscure part of the object... if it makes it too hard, let me know and I'll
repost it with more showing or post clues to assist you in finding this
landmark.

If I'm not mistaken this is part of the game (I've been following the other
Scooter Tags on MV and that seems to be part of the fun).



Good luck and happy hunting!

whoa, that picture brings back memories. When I was in college, I remember a bunch of us drove our cars up there and took some pics.

Does it have chain barriers now to prevent cars from doing that?

I didn't get close enough to notice... but I can actually see chains in the picture behind my scooter.
It wouldn't have been appropriate for me to ride much closer than I did.....

This makes me laugh - it's the same location I was gonna post! (I have a shot from last year's Orange Crush ride.) But I don't have another tag location and I won't be able to get up there for a while. Go get it, Ken!

(By the way, Matt is a funny guy. He forgot to tell you that I live over 90 miles away. So, even though I want to play with y'all, I'm perhaps a little more limited than he's letting on. Besides, I knew where the pyramid tag was, but I was too weenie to ride out in the wind. Good going RobynS!)

I figured that you lived in South OC or North SD.... I see you playing there. Matt had me nervous that you'd be jumping in so I figured I better brave the windstorm! LOL!
I was peaking at your profile and saw that you were retired, so I also figured you may have more time to ride than my humble 2 mile commute back and forth to work, and weekend jaunts..... I guess I can breathe easier now! Laughing emoticon

I think you should have to go "get" the tag, not use a photo you have laying around..... is that how you are such a scooter tag maven? You just have photos of all over Southern California?
Pretty funny!

This should be fun! Holla when you are in the LBC- we'll go get some coffee and scoot!

Hi Robyn and ks7877,

My Mother passed away on October 29th and we had her funeral yesterday ... needless to say, I was MIA for awhile.

Anyway, I was able to get out and scoot today and went to where I think your tag site is. I'll post up in a minute.

Ken

Ken, so sorry to hear about your mother....
but am glad you are back in the game! I have no idea where that is! I will consult my LB expert! I may need a clue... Sunday and Monday are my days off, if I don't get it by then, I'll have no daylight hours... any clues?

Hint: It's a large pond, not a lake, lot's of ducks, geese, and other birds just love it here. You can see it from the main boulevard that passes by.
