New tag is with in 40 miles of Moncks Corner SC. its not in Berkley County.



you can get Gas, fishing tackle, groceries, hardware, BBQ and every state has sampled their country ham's.

its located near a town that sounds like what is on every ones dinner table.


if and when you visit take a cooler and pack it full of bacon or get a ham cut up.
Lots of tasty treats like bacon and more bacon and don't for get some center cut ham.

Sweet, I've got this, and have a great tag I'll be posting after I get them both. Mine will be returning to the little history lesson theme though.

Gregg, nabbing your tag is is a bit of ride, but extremely simple on directions, since I'll only be taking two turns after I leave my neighborhood.

mangyrat,

Cool KLR. Is that paintjob new, or was I just that unobservant when you put up the Mepkin Abbey tag? Edited to say that I was that unobservant.

Thanks for the heads up on this place in your new tag. I'm definitely stopping there the next time I head to the beach. I love those kinds of places, and there aren't many of them left, unfortunately. I don't have time for the 400-plus mile roundtrip this week, but I may just have to make a special trip sometime. It looks like Draechon is going after it. I wonder if he'll get bruced.



Chris

Chris its been like that for a while last year some time i put a vinyl wrap "red reptile scales"on it.
i got tired of it turning pink so i covered it.





Keith don't forget to pick up some bacon and a BBQ sandwich while your getting the tag.
the wife didn't have to twist my arm when she suggested it for the new tag i was hunting for the cooler 2 seconds after she said the name.

I'm looking forward to hunting down your tag Keith.

Man, I was sorry I was at work today- I had this one nailed too. I grew up in the nearby town in question and worked at this place during the summer and on Saturdays when I was in high school (early 1970's) for the original owner (the guy that built it). I pumped lots of gas, stocked shelves and coolers, cut lunch meat and cheese, swept floors, and even changed tires on the manual tire changer that used to be outside.

Mr. Theron (the original owner) actually lived upstairs when he built the store. Oh yea, it's even got its own SC historical marker out front now.

Me too! It was a pretty interesting place to work, especially during the summer. Some of the beach traffic that stopped in was really nice...

So did you go or not? I actually considered making a run for it after work today but I thought you were going and I new that there was no way for me to get it before you did.

Instead I stayed home and a got my next tag picture and hid 2 Geocaches with one of my sons.

No, unfortunately the pouring down rain stopped me. I ventured out and got about 10 miles outside the Creek before the pouring rain kept stopping me. I'm just going to shut up about grabbing a tag until I actually have it in my possession now (which should be 5:30 this afternoon).

And for those of you that don't know, I'm currently terrified of the interstate and don't like riding in the rain above 50 right now as I went down on the interstate in February in light rain going 65 (low side turned into a high side), the bike going off into the median about 50' and me sliding past the guard rail on the opposite side on the shoulder about 50'. Fear of being impaled on the guard rail is why I laid her down as I was sliding sideways on the rubber straight toward the rail. If it had been dry, I would've been able to save it, but the ground was too slick.

Well, it looks like you were right. Not much ridin' going on. I knew I should have gone for it.

That was some serious rain yesterday afternoon. NOT a good time to be riding amongst the idiot cagers of the lowcountry.

Alright guys- the race is still on! BTW- I found an old ride report I posted here about 4-1/2 years ago which features the current and previous tags. Once the new tag gets claimed I'll post a link to it.
