Yup, one tag. Bike never moved during the photo session.

Yup, that be dirt and it was not harmed during the tagging.

They musta got your hint. Mz Waitress deserved the award for checking her tables.
And the food, well it did provide some of the best heart burn I'd had in awhile.

NC riders aren't afraid of a little dirt, in fact we like it...and we like this tag.

I'm starting to like this whole game better than the NC game... 'Cept for the no file tag part...

Once we get the NC tag back here, hopefully some of the VA folks will return the "favor".

Grab: Big Woods State Forest and Wildlife Management Area

I swear this tag was tailor made for me. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you...for the best ride of the year so far AND on almost all brand new roads for me. I was like a kid in a candy shop riding for this one today!

But like most tags I go for this one has a story. (if you don't want to read about today's grabbing adventure scroll down to the bottom for the tag pic).

This ride started out innocuously enough at the weekly ADV lunch in RTP. I hadn't intended to ride for this tag when I left lunch. However on the way home I got an itch for some adventure. So off I went on an almost 400 mile ride through south eastern VA and north eastern NC...and during the day no less!!!!

FYI: This ride was entirely interstate free, 100% local and backroads only...the only way to travel!

So I arrived at Big Woods without a clue where the actual tag pic was taken (like most tags I go for). I decided to start out on Cedar Sign Post Road and go around the management area looking for the correct location.

First stop...not the right area but at least I knew I was at the right place...


The allure of dirt was too much to resist so off I went down the road. I would suggest having a road map with you. I did not and it was definitely interesting to navigate the wilderness blind.


OK back out to tarmac and looking for the tag again. Hmm, this isn't the one....

This isn't the one either...


But it did have an open access road so off I went (by this point I didn't care about getting the tag, I just wanted to continue my fun ride)....














The sun was starting to set and I was almost out of gas (and didn't know where the nearest station was) so I decided to head to what the GPS said was the nearest paved road. Low and behold...on my way out (and nearly out of gas) what did I find...the tag shot at the Presson Path entrance to the management area...

New Tag

OK...since I was chastised for being confusing last time here is the new tag, no story, just the pic.



BUT (ignore this, it isn't the tag)

So on the way from the grab to the new tag spot something amazing happened. I looked left and saw the moon rising above the horizon. I looked right and saw the sun about to set over the other horizon. I pulled over and photoed both from the same spot. It was a super cool moment and I want to share so sue me. It was part of the ride after all and how often do you get both the moon rise and sun set at the same time?!
