Stiill riding but it hurts like hell. Cannot wrap my thumb under the grip due to the swelling. Just palm throttling the bike.

I'm not riding longer than my commute until the swelling goes down. Makes for an unrelaxing ride at the least.

According to NCStephen we were as close as 20 miles from the current tag yesterday while we were riding the "Foothills Tour"...but no time to grab it.

And you still did not stop long enough to snap a pic?? Of all the chances for you to get back in the game, since work won't let you play anymore, and you blew it off. Shame on you.

Yeah... (head hung shamefully low)... you are right.......
I had generally scoped out the area of the tag but not specifics
Leading a group of 7 of us I hadn't planned to go up the mountain on 16 and then over to 18. Missed a turn on 16 for a road that twisted along the base of the mountain over to 18 so then ran up on 16 and BRPW over to 18 and back down. It IS still just a little ways up 18 at that point. Our day was tight with lots of miles and that added perhaps an extra 20 minutes. So I didn't feel the freedom to get them (5 of us were inmates) to follow me to go find the tag. (two I think I would have gotten lost at the winery as well as they were talking about needing to stop at the ones in the area). Had planned to get back at 5:30, did so at 5:45 after leaving at 7:40, close to 390 miles or so.

ncs.... I will do better... I promise...... do I still get to play?????

Lost at the winery huh?

Just giving you a hard time Stephen. At least you were riding, unlike me.

NC Tag #717



The world has had many Kings but North Carolina has its own King.

Located in a town that has had at least 3 different names over the years.

(Now don't let it sit for nearly 2 weeks like last time.)

There are 3 easy clues in the picture. If you need another clue find the NC highway in the county shown in the picture that shares the same number as the black ball on a billiard table and ride it until you come to its northern end.
