Great potential...

Think of the possibility of a "dual" tag.
Take a pic from there and claim it, then walk across the line and take another looking the other way to set one up for the SC game.

There's some exploring to do there for sure. 30 miles SW of their previous tag puts me well into GA, so I don't know if the distance or the heading is wrong (or maybe it's just me).

Do you know where it is, banjo? Somehow, I bet you do.

Was there a sublte hin?

Could the pic with the stuff in his nostrils be a hint???? #2582 on that thread.
Booger Hollow Trail,maybe? That would be at the GA/NC line, so it would squelch the "dual" tag.

Careful. Watch out for that dirt road stuff. Once you have crossed over to the dark side, it is hard to turn back.
I went from a VTR1000 to a dual sport with no regrets. The Superhawk was going to kill me or have me in jail if I didn't tone it down.

Okay: Not really sure how the rules are gonna apply. You said you had 24 hrs to post new tag( or did I misunderstand. ) Sorry I didn't submit the new tag as soon as I found the one in Chesnee. I had some things to do and didn't get to it till this afternoon. I apologize ..I know it was a beautuful day for riding.

I think it will get confusing if you have multiple tags going on , right.

So if I have been "leap-frogged" , then so be it.
Since I went to the trouble to go take the picture , I'll put it up.

Clues:
Spartanburg County
You may have seen this if you are a "paddler".
Its not something you eat with a fork, but it is near one.
Iron ore in the banks made this a place for tools to be forged in Spartanburg's beginning years

Good Luck

Nice tag, Mudslinger. Unique destination AND good clues. Let the Googling begin!

p.s. I think you've done everything just right.

Oh no, you are perfectly right in your reading, you had 24 hours to post up a new tag. I would have liked the new one up sooner, since I was killing time waiting for a tag to be placed, and I knew I'd get very little riding in this weekend due to work. I'm a wedding photographer, so I work Friday nights and Saturdays, and have my weekdays free usually, unless I'm meeting with a client or taking a class. Late night is when I work on the pictures in photoshop.

But I did take a little time today to get some file photos so you all can have some fun chasing them when and if I do get the tag again.

Oh and I waved at a ST1300 today that turned out to be a cop, and he waved back, . He was apparently coming from this wreck: http://www.greenvilleonline.com/arti...17/1004/NEWS01 , some squid tried to run from him with his GF on the back. DUH. Doing a quick run away from a Crown Vic I can see, but trying to outrun another motorcycle? How stupid is that?

Yeah, I'm pretty sure I'm in the right area but haven't been able to locate that thingy in the pic.

'Course some of it could be that all the images on GE of that area have leaves on the trees.
