I guess I'll have to head up the hill and bring this back down the hill....after deer season. I got a new pair of cold weather riding britches that need to be broken in.

Grabbed!

Thanks for calling me out augiedog! Beautiful day for a ride. This is the trail junction of the Appalachian trail and Hwy 28 very near Fontana Dam.





Here's a close up of the sign to make sure I'm at the right place.



There was still some color in the hills. Snow is suppose to fly tomorrow night.

New Tag

To keep it moving, Here is the new tag.


It can be found in the SouthWest end of Jackson County off a very nice little road that shares it's name with the item in the picture. Don't ride too fast or you'll miss it like I did the first 10 times I've ridden that road. I stopped to take a break and there it was. This area has some great hidden gems and is worth exploring. Lots of twists and very little traffic. Ellijay Rd, Buck Creek and Cullowhee Mtn Rd are just a few. Go get it.

Thanks. Wasn't nearly as cold as it is going to get later this week. Cattaloochee is making snow and intends to open this coming weekend. I guess it's time to break out the snowboard and put the bikes away.

18 degrees here this morning but no snow. Skies are Carolina Blue and the air is crisp. A good day to test out the heated gear and grab a tag. I'm sitting here drinking coffee, trying to figure out how I can buy a 2001 connie without my wife hating me more than she already does.

Bump for nice weather. Rain has stopped and the sun is trying to come out. Someone needs to go for a ride to grab the tag. Let me know if more clues are needed.

I'd love to give it a shot, Joe, but two burgeoning criminals (a.k.a. my grandkids) gave me the cold from hell. They thought it was funny until I told them Santa Claus is a friend of mine.

Here you go. Should be no doubt now. The bridge will be a whole lot easier to spot with the leaves off the trees.
