Go get it...again!

Well, I couldn't hold out any longer. I thought I'd let some others in on the action, but icn4d is being rather clue-less!

Photo is from a slighty more revealing angle. River Road/Asheville. This appears to be an old pump or engine from the original Sales Bleachery that occupied this site before...well...WalMart came in and 'improved' the property. Now you know the rest of the story.

What a glorious day to ride, too. I even busted out the rain gear to grab this back....that's 2 beers you now owe me icn4d

What truck did you hijack to get fuel for the bike? To hear some of the inmates there fuel is not to be found in Asheville. Luckily we have not had an issue in Fay. yet.

Alrighty. Dig out your moldy-ass raingear and saddle up. This place needs NO clues! I am feeling generous this afternoon, so I'm making the next tag a no-brainer. I spent a good hour here (as you should, too) drying out, getting re-caffeinated, talking shit, and spending money. Go do the same!...Scott..er...ooops (spilled them beans)...i mean the establishment proprietor would certainly appreciate your bidness. My new Held gloves will be in Monday...wooohooo Oh yeah...don't buy all your shit on the innernet and have him put it all on. Buy local will ya. Often the same if not better pricing on all the stuff we google and oooogle online.

SOMEBODY come take this thing way the hell away from here so I can get some work done!

Ok...one hint...it's somewhere in area code 28730.

and...I already ate all the donuts

Hope to see you around somewhere.

if you see an old beat to hell red TDM850 with stainless steel sutures it'll be me ... or a 1995 black XT600E (of course)

tonight & tomorrow I'll be doing the emulsion-tube-ictomy and installing a stock exhaust (the "custom" one on there is just too damn loud) on the TDM, since it's supposed to rain and I'm burnt out this week and almost all the parts are in ... I'll be out and about on Sunday fer sure.

PS that tag was toooo easy ... even without the slip

Well I am out of here. I am headed to the OBX and I wanted to take the tag with me for a ways anyway. But just had too much to do plus the wife worked a 12hr at the hospital so I had to go get the kids at 5 from the babysitters. Yall have fun while I am gone for a week and keep up the good job of knocking these tags out. Have fun, if I pass a libary I might stop in and try to check it out for a little while. GO Get it!!

clues...

iupyorn good job on finding the tag, shoulda known you would get it from the whole anchor steam story...and the fact that you like to pick up chicks in the walmart parking lot...hahaha

however...I did leave clues. in fact if you mouse over the line I drew in my post it takes you to a map of the location. like I said - follow the yellow brick road. either way beers are on me...

RR - enjoy OBX, really how can you not. I moved up here from wilmington and definitely miss the beach...but give me a nice camping spot in the woods any day. (i am originally from hendo) to bad you couldn't take the tag down there to the cape fear cats

so, its the weekend, we have a token tag waiting to be nabbed and taken far from here...

who's on it?

An abandonned amusement park that is opened at least once a year for Oz freaks.

Somebody did a ride report on it a while back...not sure if I could dig it up for you or not

It'd be a great TAG!!

edit...I remember now

Here's the new Tag.

Lewis Carroll has not visited this area as far as I know.

The overnight weather made this ride even more enjoyable.

Well lets see:
NO sand
No pine trees
And a mountian in the backround.
Well it is no where near me.
