Here is the new tag and clues. Shouldn't be too difficult, just based on the pic alone. I had to stop and think if I was still playing North GA tag or a different one for a minute. Soon after this pic was taken, I got to the top of a hill and checked my tires with a penny... 5 mm of tread left. When they were new, I had 60.

Any history here, anything? The picture nor the clues gives me a shot in the dark.

GA/TN LINE The #'s 60 and 5 should get you going also. It is a town in GA on one side and another town in TN on the other side. Go get it Billy! I wish I could ride. Tried to ride around the hood today, but it wasn't happening. Don't want my battery to die ya know.

It should be easier now, especially with Crane's clue. Billy, I know for a fact you have passed this bridge a million times.

Here is another angle.



This is across the street.



There is a big 4th of July celebration here. I know, I got stuck in it's wake this past 4th heading to a DOG field trip.


That's all the clues you get.

I'm afraid I've heard of this one. Never been there though, I was gonna try to make it one of my tags, looks like Flux beat me to the punch though.

Elvis goes under the knife tomorrow, I'm not sure how much time I'll have, but if I could figure that part out I'd have a better idea on time.

Thanks for the help, I'm googling away.

Nice 180 degree view on a day like today.

Weird thing is that nowhere at the site does it say what this structure is. I've got to believe it is some sort of Civil War era lookout.
Nice shots, Flux! Wish it was that nice of day for me.
I just always thought it was an overlook along the Pinhoti trail, but I have no clue. There was a little metal sign of some sort in the center of the ring, but I forgot to go read it.

Doing great for 8 days out. Might be going stir crazy though. Make this bitch heal quicker.

Elvis?

Bad to the Bone? The wife calls it stupidity. I was real bored.

Oh, I don't know how to do those cute little quotes like you do.

So I find that this post violates the spirit of this hunt and, frankly, spoils the fun. I doubt seriously that the creator of this hunt intended for folks, from the comfort of their fireplace warmed easy chairs, to call in the play from the sidelines.

I wish the moderator of this thread had deleted this post before it propogated.

Clearly, the person who legitimately tagged this location gave PLENTY of clues in his post. That whole thread about the dimensions of his tread ... Come on! It was a cake walk.

I hope folks in the future will see fit to be more considerate of those of us who want to participate. Why spoil the fun for the rest of us?
