Or as in the case of ol' Nutsy, Buckeyes are upon you!

I'd go for that one but guess I'll check out the vendors at the RA rally in Biltmore this weekend....nice placement....real hot spot he is in if'n it were back in the day I am feelin' a need of an Iron Rail so it may be later when I put up a tag...

Try 276 north to 40 or take a left just before the I40. From the other side, Isn't round exit 7?

Harmon Den Exit 7 I-40
go under I-40
cross Little pigeon River on low water crossing
go up the hill
watch for rope on tree (river side) tied off for hand hold
if you get to the top you missed it

haven't been in a few years, don't seem to have a pic on this laptop

New Tag

This campsite is in a campground. The elevation here is 5,280 feet (appx)





If this campsite is full, take a photo of the one next to it. I was going to use this one but people were sitting there and I did not want to be weird and snap their photos




Or go on to the next site and take one here.





Heck, go to the check in and take a photo with your bike( tag shot is to the right as you face the check-in and about a hunerdt yards), or take a photo at any site and I know this place well. Just so you tell me where you are and that is good enough. Need more clues? There are about three ways to come into this camp gound. Here is a photo of the entrance I used and I know you will recognize this.....






If you go on by the last space I showed you above and down the mountain, oh and these roads are in great shape even with all the rain we have had, you will see stuff like this:





and so forth ( view Thomas Divide )






Bonus Aarrff points good for a sammich of your choice if you get a photo of the same exact turkey in the road in the same place ( a dancing leprechaun will do)






Couldn't catch him






Ok and a few final klews:






Going back to another entrance:













And this is a dead giveaway

Hmmn I might have been in that crowd. Or at least in a crowd that stopped there during a beaver ride couple years ago...

That was one of joewannabe's nantahala rides.

I camped up there once. Great views. Next morning woke up in the clouds. Couldn't see a damn thing till we got down under them.
