Mike, I think you and I may have the same place in mind, I just cannot find 2 major North routes near mine.

It is a beautiful Tag, great work by Fireman.

I had a few places in mind as I took off and quickly eliminated two locations. I was not able to get to my third choice since I could not find a road I was looking for and a helping hand steered me further away to no avail.
I did see a lot of Jones County and lots of it on dirt. My street steed ain't meant for that kind of skating.

It did look a little dirty out there.

Now, now guys, gotta stick up for Fireman, Looks to be a perfectly good road behind the bike and he would not risk his daughter going down on a bad road.

Then again, I do ride a GS so my perspective on the road quality might be skewed.

I was referring to his lack of extra hints. I like the dirt roads.

Falling in mudholes is my specialty.

OK folks, didn't mean to make it so hard. Maybe "major northern routes" is misleading. It's between hwy 11 and hwy 129 after you've turned north at the railroad tracks in Gray. There is a small church next to the tag that shares the same name as the capitol of Syria. The road is paved all the way to where the tag is. Then both roads turn to dirt.


Ernbo, you can take a street bike just about anywhere an adventure bike will go (the FZ1 is mine).





Happy Tagging.

Anyone can play. Just be the first to take a picture of your bike there, then post a new picture of your bike somewhere else. Different areas of the country seem to have different flavors of the game. Here in Georgia, they seem to like obscure locations with no hints.

Found where I think it is, still can't verify with a Sat view or street view. Also if it is there, the little buddy hint doesn't make sense to me. I am probably not going to be able to get it anyway.

Little buddies don't often ride too far from home, is what I got.

Skooled!

Ok, I suck..........and that there road is the one I didn't find and was one of the places I was going to look at. As it was, I rode up and down, saw "other" cemeteries, met plenty of the local town folk to include a Sheriff Dept. Caprtain, Lieutenant, and several Deputies.

So, despite not getting the tag, I did make a different kind of impression.

Bingo.

Did my last clues help? I'm heading north for the weekend for some RR with the family in those wonderful hills of appalachia. I'll check in to see if you guys need more hints.

I'd like to have a hint on the Revolutionary War vets name if you have it.

I found a church with what I think is the right name and it's in about the right area but it from the satellite view it looks lie a large church with a large cemetery.
