Thanks a lot ncsthephen.

Now I want to go back and get my own tag.
Charley's Creek Road is a very challenging ride.
Charley's Creek, 281 and Tanasee Gap Rd make a nice 25 mile loop.

Look on the north side of your trees and you'll get the first name of this shooting range.

ps - if you like twisties, the roads to get here are epic.

The water level in the WNC mountains is very high this spring, we're 7 inches above normal rainfall already. The water managers must be piling up the overtime. This was on 107 above Cashiers. The water is traveling through the spillways and still overtopping the dam.

Ocracoke is nice this time of year and I have a new scoot that hasn't made a trip down east yet. Go for it.

Go get the east tag fish. It's been stuck in Belhaven for a while now.
The ABC tag is in Jackson NC and needs a new home down at the coast too.

Perhaps because of the proximity of a BMW dealer we saw lots of BMWs around and in the parking lot while we were there. Personally I think they ribs there are overrated. Cooked too dry because they were cooked too fast. Probably an artifact of their popularity.
