new tag

old watertower saved and restored from a large cattle farm that is now one of the premier destinations in NC. It is not on the destination but nearby.

Anyone here near Mocksville, NC?

Looking at a bike that's got some damage there, and would rather someone look at it before I drive all the way out there...

Waiting on clues, because I"m clueless.

"premier destinations NC" comes up with golf courses and Outer Banks.

Post this to the Central Tag group. There are several from Winston. DEParker on here is from Clemmons and loves reasons to ride.


BTW. What's the number you are trying to get under in this bike buy?

Pretty sure I've tried every google search possible and I can't get a hit at all.

I'm getting the OBX too. Maybe if I could read the sign in the picture a little better but I can't make much out. I know it is a 704 area code which narrows it down a bit and I'm pretty sure the last 4 digits are 7871. If I could just figure out what those middle 3 were. I'm not tagging today but A.C.T.G. can be fun too.

I did come up with South Point Storage in Belmont doing the same but even if parent company to that site, the logo is different and the site looks pertty different. No tower in the view, no curbing on the pavement etc. Couldn't find any other locations for them. I got a hit with a number for Sherrill Industries in Dallas but they are a machine shop. I did a search for destinations, for restored water towers, blue water towers, and storage 704-***-7871 and have struck out.

I do think it is a current pic. Right time of year, a bit of sun, frozen plants. Plants look right for the foothills. Lots of clues there, I just fail to put them together.

Guess I am not even a good at ACT now.

Yeah, what you said!

I think part of the problem with "clues" is if it's a place you've been to or ridden past 50 times, it seems familiar. But to people who have never been there, it's a head scratcher.

I prefer the clues version as opposed to just posting up the exact address or coordinates. But I think a lot more attention needs to be paid to the actual clues if the photo doesn't look obvious to people who do NOT live in the area.


My first guess for this one is Southern Pines. Other than that and NASCAR tracks, there aren't any premier destinations in that area, to be honest.

Found it in 5 minutes while holding a baby in Hobby Lobby. Think Sallaway Bay
