    STOC TAG

    aka the Pan-Global Tag Challenge ...

    This is something that has evolved over the last 2 years, as I became more active on this board, and as a rider.

    I happen to really appreciate the Tag concept, and wish that I could participate more. Family responsibilities, though, have thus far kept me really close to home. At The MLR this last year, I was introduced to a new idea in Tags, the Adventure Rider's Egg. After seeing that, I thought it would be neat to do something similar for ST riders.

    My answer for this is the STOC Tag. It is my opinion, that if the founders of the STOC, Derek and Charlie, were still around, they would be at least as active Taggers as Mac and my dad, George. With that in mind, I commissioned the MoonTag maker to produce two custom name tags, 1 each for Charlie and Derek. They have been placed into an Aerostich bag with a logbook and pen.

    **UPDATE 11/24**

    With the untimely loss of Terry Hammond, aka Austin City Limits, it was decided by me to increase the package to contain Tags for others who have gone before. With that in mind, ACL and Putt were added to the package at Terry's memorial service. Others riders can be added to the package at anytime. Just contact me, and I will forward the information on how to get the Tags made.

    This is intended to be part TAG, part geo-cache, part memorial, and one helluva excuse to GO RIDE!!!

    The rules are simple:

    Locate the current tag, and the tag package. Get a photo of your motorcycle with the tag/tag package, and then move it on.

    Transfer of the tag/tag package can be a simple hand off, much like the pony express, or a delayed hand-off with the tag package secreted near the tag location.

    A log book entry should also be made for each Tag location.

    Teaser Tags, shots of the tag package's journey, are also allowed and encouraged.

    Repeats are allowed, and the tag package does not have to travel via motorcycle, although that is the preferred method. Aircraft, watercraft, horses, and cars are all allowed, to name a few. The reason for this is, I would love to see this tag spread beyond the borders of North America, and even potentially cross oceans (if anyone carries it that far. Please do!!)


    Make every effort to have the Tag package return to the Moonshine Lunch Run every year, starting in April of 2011.


    May this Tag travel everywhere Derek and Charlie hoped to ride ...

    Here is the Tag package in all of its glory:

    The Tag package will make its debut appearance at Moonshine Illinois, hopefully tomorrow ...

    Wow that is awesome.

    Adam you are incredible. I love it. I can't wait until it wanders into CT...where can I take Charlie and Derrek?

    I need to put a fish sticker in that log book too.

    Great idea, Adam! I've just recently been introduced to geo-caching and find that it's more fun than I initially thought it would be. And, of course, the tribute to Derek and Charlie is super.

    A good idea, a great tribute. STers being top drawer folks, I believe this'll take off.

    In our discussions, may we find; in essentials, Unity, in non-essentials, Liberty, and in all things, Charity.

    Perhaps I'll grab it if it's near Moonshine in April and take it to Germany for a bit...
