She did....I have been in love a long time! You can't have her! She hooks up all the farm equipment too and knows how to use it. Best chain sawing woman I ever saw! A true Missouri farm girl!

You gotta be careful in Tellico Plains, I hit a bump going through there and dropped a brand new box of roofing nails in the road while I was driving through.
Oh! So you are the culprit! It was actually like a three cornered jagged hole right in the center of the tire so it was hard or impossible really to plug unless I took the tire off and used a "plug patch" on the inside which I did not have. We eventually got home anyway thanks to mtngal's expertise with everything. It just kept leaking faster and I became concerned that it would go down fast with no where to bail off the road as I got in the hills..

New Tag

My plan yesterday was to make a loop down below Tellico and return to 74 via 30 and get a new tag shot on 30 but that did not happen so hope this will do. An easy one but a good place to stop for lunch and great area to ride. Below is the route we rode on this day as I recall.



We had been up on Viking Mtn Road to the towers, then around Green Mountain Road. Ran north west a bit to here for lunch then headed back on the route and south on Cove Creek/Cedar Creek/Long Branch etc to 25-70 then onto 107 south to Round Mountain/Max Patch/and then home. Makes a good day and sure most of you have been that way. Have fun and I am headed to Asheville with my wheel for a new tire...any shot from the parking lot will do and be careful pulling off here as there is a lot of gravel as I remember...

Got up early and I already have 400 miles today. Here's the new tag. It should be a fun Andhunt and ride.



Clue...





Have fun!

No more clues needed. Just time to get home from West Virginia and grab it.
