Hey NCNCTAR guys, he just moved it CLOSER to you, and gave up some great roads in the process.

This tag ought to be in the piedmont by tomorrow night.

If you turn and head up the road whose name includes a species recently released into GSMNP, you'll be rewarded with this:



Two incredible roads for the price of one, and you HAVE to take one of them just to get to the tag.

Lots of locals ride the first road. The second can get a bit hinky with gravel/log trucks in tight curves so keep an eye open. If a RIDER wants to ROOST nearby, just follow the critter-named road.



Finally figured out TapaTalk on the iPhone!
I was on that road yesterday on my way to Boone. I missed the last 2 tags by 24 hours.

Hiwassee, especially in winter, is a bit of a haul even by my standards. Maggie Valley is pushing it unless it's a weekend.

Let it get close enough I can leave the office and be home by midnight, though, and I am IN!

Chances are good that I can't leave the Triangle area until after 10 or so and expect that it's probably going to be locked up by then.
Maybe, maybe not. Worst case is you get bruced but you still get in a day of great riding. Remember, grabbing the tag is secondary and is just an excuse to get out and ride.

On 2nd thought it's a little bit further from my planned route than I thought so I might not get a chance to get it so don't wait for me.

Ya know WB...you must be a more patient and forgiving person than I...because i wouldnt give this customer the priority that you have...once in a while you owe it to yourself to take a day off and just kick back...yeah i know you already did...but that was last week...

Well I was about 15 miles from the tag on my smaller bike when it wouldn't restart. Hope someone else gets it today.
