I was hopping to set the new tag yesterday on my way home but I was exhausted yesterday and didn't feel like adding another 5 hours to my trip. I'll get it up when I can.

It poured for the better part of the weekend in the Hampton area but luckily my tent held up.

Yeah I was up in Bryson City from last Wednesday til Saturday.... It was a mess Thursday we rode the first 150 miles in the rain then the next 200 were nice. Friday I decided with a 10% chance of rain that I shouldn't take my rain gear... Made it to the tail of the dragon, got hailed on on the way. Decided to turn around and do the 50 miles back to the hotel.... Damn near had to go to the hospital as it was less than 50 Degrees

Around here in the mountains, we have two kinds of weather men. Weather Guessers and Weather Liars! We're getting into our regular summer pattern of scattered thunderstorms in the afternoon. The storms tend to run up the valleys where it can beautiful and sunny where you are now while the valley next over is absolutely pouring a flood. You never know its going to rain til the thunder cloud tops the ridge and it suddenly gets dark and the sky opens up.

Thank you sir! I believe I have the distinction of having made the longest South/North and West/East runs of the game.

I know there have been a couple cross state runs. Congrats if the medals belong to you!

It definitely eclipses the Henderson to Hertford that Melissa and I did. I think you officially own the longest runs.

I may have the longest day run for this game. Asheboro to the Corolla Lighthouse back to Dare Co for the drop and back home. 645 miles that day.

Nice new tag ICD. Did you see any bears out and about making that ride?

Looks like the last 7 counties could take a while. I may get it together and grab the next two this weekend. See what happens with the lady I guess
