Excellent tag, Zookster! Another hint for those in the know; that is the site of one of Doug Staffords great fist fights when he was a boy.

I was beginning to wonder when you would grab one, great job. I can't wait to see where you carry the next one.

Dave that bike looks awesome there! It looks like a photo shoot for a KTM catalog. I'm sure your going to set the bar pretty high on this next tag.
(I wish I could be out riding right now )

Curses, Foiled Again! I was going there after work....it is less than 10 miles from my place of semi-gainful employment. Good tag, Dave D! I look forward to cursing and trying to figure out where the heck the next place will be.

Ahhh, the joys of trying to teach High Skoolers.

New TAG Location

This is the back way to a Blount County destination.




This area of the state is breathtaking.





THIS IS YOUR NEW TAG!




Please TAG only this gate!


Clues:

This is a public county road and a cemetery is located nearby.
There is also a town close to here with nearly the same name as the county.


View looking west:





View looking east:




Some images of the area:






This is a 900 acre estate.

You are looking at a 17,000 square foot example of Greek Revival architecture at its absolute finest.


A view from the main highway entrance:







The driveway is over a mile long.



Good Luck

I know exactly where it is, but I don't know when I'll be able to make it.

Simpson texted me about 30 minutes ago to tell me he got the tag
He should be logging in in an hour or so only to be disappointed

Man, I hate that.

Hopefully, he enjoyed the location anyway.
