hints are in the post.

south of my house a few miles. (specifically 3)
west on Hwy 122.

but ok.

narrow the window of you search to Hwy 122 and Possum Creek Road... roughly 3 miles west of the 125/122 junction. (walker's crossing)

if no one has it by monday, i'll move it. looks like my little 4 day vacation trip to tellico plains was trumped by superior court.

I know where it is, I just need time to go get it. Your original clues got me there.

No worries..... I'm re fueling with rum.... I'll be looking to get out tomorrow and get us a new tag... Maybe with a prize.....

I was cold enough that I had to crank the grip heaters from saute to char broil to keep my hands warm. Must have been the coldest 252 miles I've ever ridden.

Heading down the GA coast in the next couple of days

Greetings,


I'm doing a solo ride from Bluffton, S.C. down the GA coast line (well the best I can), I was wondering if anyone wanted to link up, or hang out?

Check out my sig for my current tour.

I may ride into Savannah this Monday and visit Honda Yamaha of Savannah (Abercorn ST) to have my chain tightened. I'm also looking at DVS Motorsports also. What do you'all think of these shops?

I may ride into Brunswick, GA on that same day. It's about 101 miles.

Well at least you picked a time with some good weather.

I haven't been on my bike in a week now. I got over the flu right after the new year and I thought it was done. Until I went riding last Saturday. By the time I got home my occasional cough turned into a rather frequent hacking cough that sounded like I was about to expel a lung. So I have decided to stay out of the cold until this goes away.

New tag....

Well after having a successful run down around Ray City to pick up the last tag, things kinda didn't go my way. I made a trip to a vineyard (breaking my no dirt roads on the FJR policy) and was going to leave a bottle for someone as reward for finding the tag. Didn't work out that way -- because of a small disagreement with the law, they are unable to let the bottle leave unless its on a UPS truck. There is a small misinterpretation in the rule book that is literally taking an act of congress to sort out. The bill had its first reading Friday.

So --- grand plans dashed. Completely dejected, i wandered home knowing the rest of the weekend was fully booked and no opportunity existed for a backup tag run.


So I offer a monument as a tag and say it is near my work. Whoever knows it and wants to come after it, let me know and we will met for lunch or dinner at a local establishment - my treat. (PM me for my number) However i am not available today or Wednesday.

I love paper maps. GPS is good but I find it impossible to get a big picture idea how lost I actually am with one......

Ha!! I remember Grovers Grits. Back when I did heating and air/plumbing with my dad, we used to stop there every morning to get the link sausage sandwiches.
