NOT A GRAB - someone go fetch it

A little harder to find the sign - used to be right off of the main highway there... now it's at the entrance of the main neighborhood that's left over out there.... used to pass by it on a work route all the time up around there in warren county (or whatever county that is).

NOT A GRAB.... STILL IN PLAY someone go get it - fun riding up that way!

Riding 158 from west to east across NC is my favorite ride in the state to date. We had a blast. There is lots of good scenery, neat roadside stops, and there is just something cool about seeing the agriculture transitions across the state. Plus, MrsDonkeys has a thing for old barns, and the tobacco farming sections are loaded with them.

I'd love to snag this tag, but I just spent the morning plugging a tire, and now I've got to drive it to work to make sure it is safe for the Mrs and baby. Today was the only chance I was going to have to snag it until next week.

later in the week I could see a ride up that way... if anyone wants to go. Haven't decided... days are getting shorter and work is getting longer (isn't that the way?)... wed, thurs, fri??

almost forgot - since I hate clues, here is where they moved the sign.

Got a call last night. The in-laws are on their annual 10k+ mile Harley tour. This year it was Oklahoma, Milwuakee, Canada, Niagara Falls, all around New England, down to DC, and now SURPRISE.....our house. Good thing I like my in-laws.

I tried convincing my father-in-law to swing by Soul City on the way down from DC to make the grab. "So you want me to ride how many miles out of my way to take a picture to post on the internet?" Sometimes this tagging thing is a hard addiction to explain...

Yes? I don't understand the question. Is there a problem?

Back to kayak stuff. If you can't store it inside consider a bag. I have a carbon fiber racing canoe that I store in a car port in a bag. Google baglady she makes all types used yo be about $150 for a canoe. My wive made one for my C1 for less than $35

naw man! gonna make people work for it!

Should be obvious. Named after the town it is in.... google will bring up the location right away.



So.... head towards the coast (or those of you in the fayetteville area ride on over). I didn't get a chance to eat there, it was a sunday and they were closed.

Google says 40 miles. Wish the wife was home or she wouldn't make me sleep outside for doing a night tag without her here.


You got this via Crapatalk

Well I had hoped to pick one up be an unexpected bill popped up and shot that to hell. I either need to but new goggles or the Explorer helmet. Goggles have gotten freekin high. Last pair of Smith's cost me $25. They don't have the cheap Scott's for under $40 now-a-days. Damn. If I get the one without the sunvisor, thats almost the price of a helmet. (on sale for $69)
