Found it! 229 miles from me. Either my google fu is getting really good or those were some ultra easy clues. Either way, I've got too much to do before this weekend to go chasing tags.

BTW: Great pair of grabs NC-Okie and FishHunt. Making up for lost time.

Tag #219 ..

Tag #219 ..



.. Clues ..

.. just south of the last tag is a road with three digits = 11 ..
.. off that road in the fine town of Madison, NC is a World-Famous BBQ joint ..
.. the name of the BBQ joint is NOT bare-nekked .. nor oily-hair ..
.. next to that BBQ joint is the road leading to this tag (or you can duck out the back of the parking lot) ..
.. if you took the name of the road leading to this tag and added two of them together you would get $0.10 (a dime), though they are NOT spelled the same.

.. it is visible with google .. so your google-fu can lead you there ..
.. it is gravel past the stop sign at West End Blvd (another hint) ..
.. there are some very short dirt roads back in there .. if you wander you won't wander far, and you could end up on private property ..
.. if you take a look around you may find the head-stones from some Civil War Era folks, the oldest I have found back there has a "born-date" of 1803 .. there are also some Vets from WWI, WWII, Korea, Vietnam, some of whom died in action, though most of them made it home .. I don't know of any from any more-recent actions/wars ..

Y'all ride Blessed ..

Tag #220

This brand new town hall is in what used to be known as Green Pond. This town sounds like it should be located in the county at a nearby corner where 4 counties meet. For some reason the town hall is not in the center of town but near the school.

Interesting, didn't know they had built a new Town Hall. Went through there more times than I can count taking the boat to the lake.

Wouldn't it be easier to just trailer it?

I'm sure we'll all have opportunities to accumulate some nice file tags on Saturday.
