Great place. Fun trivia: It's TVA's first dam, but not their oldest.

Norris Dam. Great views. Some of the roads around there are quite nice.




I'll stick some more stuff up in the next post.

I took some back roads and even found myself a gravel road near the dam. I knew this one wouldn't do it though.



The road going across the dam.


And of course the dam name.


I'll have to head back up there with more time. I have a house guest here and didn't want to be a complete dick. Next tag coming right up.

New Tag

I know some of y'all can't find things easily so I'm gonna make this one easy to find. Others among you probably can't get away without some excuse. Well if you can't think of a good excuse with this one you don't deserve to ride.

This is the tag picture:


Reverse view:


And it's near this:


Y'all want it easier? I can say this dam store is run by the dammed French Broad.

Oh c'mon. If you took that first dam pic post the dam thing. Good quick move on that new tag. Hope to meet up with you some time soon.

I'll have to see where we go next.

So for those of you who may have wondered about my words here I'll explain.

If you can't tell your spouse that you've gotta run to the dam store for some coffee, hotdogs, bait, whatever you have no imagination.

The store is next to Douglas Dam. That makes Douglas Lake out of the French Broad river. Thus this store is by the dammed up French Broad river.

Here we go:

Built by a Branner; bought by a Jarnigan; saved by the APTA.

Good. I want wine to be findable so folks could enjoy the ride there and back. Listing impossible tags doesn't lead people to anything new.

Well dang. I've passed the signs for that place forever and always told myself I needed to go there. Guess what. I think I'm gonna go there right soon. If anybody out there is planning on going do it soon or you'll be bruced.

Heck, this one's close enough that I think I'll start considering the next location now.
