Man I don't want to stall this tag again. The more it moves the more people will participate. Here's a REALLY BIG CLUE for y'all:

googleventure #2 was the charm for me.

I also dont know when I'll be able to make it up there, probly about a 4 hr round trip for me and working 10hr days makes home time and sleep a premium. plus I have an unidentified rattle on the old TA. Lots of excuses, I know. Thats why I took the cage to NC last week instead the bike. But hwy 64 is still pretty fun in the Sooby.

Welcome to the site too noob. Dunno how many similar bikes you're gonna find amongst us but hey, if you ride it places then it's an adventure.

Where to next?

Oh, and that site, from their website:

Originally a family home and an 1870's tobacco plantation, this historic mansion is now a leading attraction. It has secret doors and hidden passage ways. The Southern Belle sits atop a prime piece of real estate in White Pine, TN surrounded on three sides by the French Broad & Nolichucky Rivers; this 125 acre estate is 360 degrees of unobstructed paradise. Herds of deer, flocks of Canada geese, and soaring eagles are year-round companions to visitors to this premier East Tennessee mansion.

The Southern Belle is a display of wealth and decadence that was almost completely funded by money earned by real-estate in the Disney/Orlando, Florida area. Over half a million dollars in antiques, from the 1600's on, find their home at the Southern Belle. Over thirty-five Swavoriski Austrian Crystal chandeliers light this home worthy of "Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous."


I suspect some of you figured out that "Southern Belle Plantation" in google took you all over the web but "Southern Belle Mansion" gets you right to the point.

its like you were looking over my shoulder or something...

actually at first i was trying to find houses related to specific famous southern ladies.
Then i tried the plantation route...
then the "Southern Belle Farm" route...
then i got it right.

maybe I ought to get a Google merit badge for all that.

Just think of it as a learning experience. I like them to take a little bit of searching so folks from farther away have a better chance of getting them if they're good at searching.

I thought the cot and meal would lead folks to search for bed and breakfasts in East TN. I didn't try that search myself but it should turn up. BTW I'm considering riding out to see if I can walk through that place. When we were there I didn't really know its status.

The tags are all run together somehow. When I put in multiple images I always hit the right arrow after putting the image in then I hit enter twice before putting in another image. The arrow key deselects the image that was just input and the enter gives a bit of space between the images.

You'll have to take a ride through the COUNTRYSIDE to find this sweet destination. On the porch you'll find an ol' yeller dog whose aging like a fine WINE.

Ah. I'm probably an idiot and lots of folks recognized that from the pictures they've seen. Got it now though. Thanks.
