Augie and I left for this tag under cloudy sky's. Before we got out of Gaston county, the rain started. Rained the entire trip. So much for the weather forecast.
Did you happen to see the Trail Camera hidden in the bush near where we were parked? SMILE, YOUR ON CANDIED CAMERA!!!!!

I missed seeing the camera. The grounds and building stay kept up and aren't falling in. I dont know who pays for all of it. Old 18 is a great road to ride. Glad you missed some of the rain.

you will find the bueatiful pavillion located on the site at the largest botanical garden in nc. It is private owned and maintaned with a grant from a wealthy textile mill owners estate. His former home and estate is part of the land he granted for the gardens.

Too bad the XT is out of commission again, I broke a spoke and popped the rear tube while Sandrion and I were on the way to grab the upstate tag. The local dealership can't get me just one spoke, so I'm looking into other options.

Placed looks like it was closed less than a week ago but has been closed for quite some time. Lots of golfers out in the rain.

I know exactly where you're talking about, I've been there a few times for 3-wheeler parts (and an IT200 I was restoring). I completely forgot about them

I don't see how the address says Connellys Springs... Looks like Evinrude was right about the location when me and him talked about it the other day... darn misleading addresses..

Good hints inside the picture itself.

Separate hint: What is the opposite of a night academy.
