Built between 1825 and 1830, this circuit church is one of the oldest in the area. It is rich in ecclesiastical architecture, which is commom to rural churches. In 1915, the last 14 members transferred membership to the present day Inman Methodist Church.

That is a neat spot. Do you think any of the stones in the cemetery date back to the original structure?
Morning light=magic light for pics.

Where to next?

I work on an open heart surgery team. We had a STEMI code come in and I needed to be there to put them on the heart-lung machine so they could have new pipes put on the heart!
Hopefully this won' take too long and I will get out in time to post the next tag
This time...."no peeke peeke!!"
Bulleteer,
Due to the urgency of my ride, I didn't have time to walk around the cemetary but I believe there are some original headstones. there. Just go down Blackstock rd out of downtown Inman( off 292), It will turn into New Cut Rd( so the street sign said...a little confusing) Keep going and the Church Marker is on the left side of the road about a 1/4 mile down after you pass New Cut /Blackstock intersection. Should be a nice day. Go for a ride/walk

Okay Driller and all the rest ....here it is.
Since this IS an adventure forum an lots of Dual-sport conversation is here, I thought the next tag should have a "dual -sport " theme.
I apologize again for all those drooling today to ride to a tag but work does get in the way. I'm doing my best. There is still some good daylight left

I'm only giving one clue:

Some would call this the "ultimate " off road experience!

Now all you dual-sport wannabe's without knobby tires, if you can handle your iron steed with any type of control you should have no trouble getting it here for a shot!

Go get it and good luck
(I know its only one clue but for some , that might be all it takes...lets wait and see!

Darn good photo! Would have loved to seen a shot of the bike on the bridge though. Your tire tracks were fresh, I can tell that your running TKC80's and it looks like the back tire is a bit worn down, you probably have at least 3,000 miles on 'em.

Hey!! was that you I saw on the other side of the highway when I took this photo? LOL Just kidding. Nice tag! Did you recognize the view or was it the clue?
I see what you mean..."You need to be careful, this thing will take over your life and drive you nuts.".......
I was hoping to use my next clue..."my bike could call this place home!"
Oh well, on to the next, or maybe I'll sit this one out!

That clue gave it away for me, "ULTIMATE", if you had said ULTIMATE DRIVING MACHINE", that would have been a dead give away!

Another neat thing, I saw 4 Red Tail Hawks while doing this, 2 on the way out and 2 on the way back (all different locations). I also saw 4 blue lights, all were (too) busy

I have to figure out this new phone, I could have had it posted in even more record time.

I had left the house around noon to run down to the gun shop and never saw the bridge tag.

I agree Bulleteer to get it out of Spbg county. My fault ; was on call and couldn't post a tag too far away. Maybe Hojo can put one down in the low country. I really want to get back down to Francis Marion ! That will be my excuse to go! That's why we play this game, right?

So Hojo you took that pic with your Blackberry? nice pic. And of course , I guess you can post it on the spot?

I too saw a huge redtail as I was leaving the tag. And yes , saw plenty of blue lights on N. bound as I was headed S. bound.

No, I did not take the photo with my phone, I'm still trying to figure the darn thing out, just glad that I didn't loose all my contacts and a sigh of relief that I managed to salvage (after much work and 15 hours on the phone with tech support), my calendar.

Francis Marion! Well, I plan on moving the tag further, but I aint going that far tomorrow, gotta watch the big Bowl game at 3:00 tomorrow. Yes, I said 3:00, I'm gonna watch the Puppy Bowl on the Animal Planet, can't wait for the half time show (meow)!

So guys (and gals), be patient, it's dark out right now and the tag is mine, but don't sleep in, be prepared to ride, cuz I plan on having it posted by nine (a.m.).
