new tag is here

Ok I guess there was no interest over the weekend so I got it today, ( I did have to circle back, I enjoyed the Foothills Parkway so much I forgot to stop for the picture.)




I have moved it North a bit, Hopefully to get some more players

the sign tells all (this one is for a dual sport)




If you are on a street bike I think we can let you slide in with this (the road turns to gravel here)

Same area




While you're in the area Pittman center road is a nice ride

Bummer the TA is a way cool bike, I hope you get it fixed soon.

It had been quite a while since I had been up there, I was reminded how much I hate Gatlinburg/pigeon forge/Sevierville. and it was as quiet as I have seen it.

I have several Ideas for tags that will be further from pavement and harder to locate, I just thought I would try for more interest in the game for now.

Willbilly and I are riding to Asheville, nc this weekend to a music festival and was going to take a small detour to grab the tag but just remembered my memory card for my camera doesn't fit in my laptop so unless willbilly can get his cell phone to work I wont be able to make a post until late sunday evening when we get home ..... but it's all good, still going to be a beautiful ride!

Got it!

Sorry I didn't go all the way out to the trail head, we were in a race with time trying to stay a head of the storm. Also, sorry the picture didn't turn out so great, had to use a waterproof camera.

Greenbrier Ranger Station

Located off of US 321 TN 73 on Greenbrier Rd. We made a few wrong turns and ended up riding through Gatlinburg , we didn't need any glass unicorns or christmas ornaments so we kept riding.

New Tag

Sorry about bringing it back to southeast TN. This shouldn't be too "hard" to find.

Another Clue

I hear that road on which this tag is located can really "Suck".
If I didn't have to slab (allergic to slab)it over there, I'd get it today.
