Left the house before 7.

Not a bad day. About 7 hours total, with minimal stops. Little over 300 miles.

Next Tag

Ok here is the next tag. Will post clues shorly.




This is in a national park, honoring a Revolutionary war battle field.. The county it is in bears its name. The town it is in is named after one of the American Generals.

The battle took place in March of 1781

English General had this to say.

"I never saw such fighting since God made me. The Americans fought like demons"
-Lt. General Charles, Earl Cornwallis

Finally
The largest, most hotly-contested battle of the Revolutionary War's Southern Campaign was fought at the small North Carolina backcounty hamlet of XXXXXXXX XXXXXXXXXX. The battle proved to be the highwater mark of British military operations in the Revolutionary War.

Now Go Get it.

I'm impressed you counted to one. J/k

Figured the only way to get one, was to get up while it was cold, and nobody would else would be that stupid.

My point, Exactly, that is normally the only way, I would be up riding in the cold, and most of the people at work, think I'm crazy doing that.

I can actually count to 2, but it was cold and I wanted to have one warm hand.

Great job GGRJR! You made the right choice. There are still several hours of daylight - go get it folks.

Come and work for me and I will!
I even have the address of that Tag.
I am convinced that I will be working 99% of my life and trying to catch up with the family stuff the other 1%. I at least get to ride back and forth to work.

Closes at 5:00 according to the website. Garmin said I would reach it at 4:58, a little too fine today. Come on a bit more west if you please.
