Nothing wrong with your clues. I found it in just a few minutes...but haven't had the time to go after the tag.

Maybe for those not familiar with the area you could use some ENGLISH ?

Somebody needs to grab this one. It's a pretty good ride. Try not to check yourself into the English Mountain Recovery Center while you are there.

I wanted to go get it today but the GS has a wobbly front wheel and the KLR has a set of knobbies that are near the end of their life.

I am new at this as well, but as far as I can tell, you did a fine job. You were supposed to tell the location of the tag, so I will do that for you. Its on Alpine Rd on English Mountain near the Jefferson, Cocke and Sevier county lines.

Now you have to post up the next tag location. Good luck.
