NOT the tag!

Also located in Cocke County a good distance from the previous tag.






This pic and a little google should provide sufficient clues...

A buddy of mine said the forest service folks told him that most of the gates will be opened on March 20. Not sure if that is the case for this one

Yeah it's a file pic...I rode that direction yesterday and went toward NC today. Gate should be open now but I don't know for sure. You think I should pick a different location?

If the gate is closed, re-tag, please. I had to twice some time back. I also used a file photo and was told the gate was closed do to tornado damage at the campground near the tag (actually causing a death) and once because of seasonally closures. I went and verified the fact both times and moved the tag asap. I was allowed a little grace period to move it and the game went on.

"The taggers bike needs to be in the photo. So I think that if a road is goverment maintained and legal to ride than it is fair game."

The game has been going on for a long time and the rules should still be applied...thanks. Let's all play together and fairly.

The forest service thread says "thru March 20", so that would imply that they should be open Thursday for sure. We hope. Although that road is not listed so who knows.

My bike IS in the photo at the base of the tower. And the road IS government maintained ( such as it is) and IS legal to ride ( unless the gate is closed, you're right there).

I can easily pick a new tag if you guys think I should...to be honest I didn't think about the gate and I don't want anyone to ride illegal just to get the tag.
