I'll try again tomorrow and might even use a real digital camera.
After figuring out that I had a really bad case of dumb thumbs yesterday and if I had pushed the right button the phone would have worked, I returned and after I had a really great 8" Pizza with sausage, mushrooms, garlic and goat cheese, washing it down with a Red Rock Ginger Ale I made this here grab...

Nicely done. It was supposed to be raining and we've got sunshine here now. Can't wait to see where we go from here.

Can't remember the Tag number now, but if you are standing at the next tag and look across the road you will see this view:



Right now it is flowing about 2,400 cubic feet per second. Yesterday it peaked at 5,100. This is the South Fork of the oldest river in the US but it's name does not reflect that fact. In a few miles it joins up with the North Fork and becomes one river.

So, if you turn around you see this tag.



All the clues you need for this one are right there. If you get stuck though I'd be glad to help. Just let me know.

Enjoy.

Nice new tag of a river. We don't do tag numbers in this game. Kinda helps make it easy to play.

Thanks. I thought it would be a neat place to visit.

My bike is a '79 R100RT and I've had it about about 6 months now. Really been enjoying getting into riding again.

Good luck with the tag.

Thanks for the assist. Now back at the hotel room. Having some technology issues with Tapatalk that needed a laptop to correct...

1058 miles to the tag from home. May drag it North a bit with me...

Stay tuned!

Rob

Yes please take it north...gives us an excuse to get off our butts and go. Great grab and fast too I am sure all on here will agree that if you need a few days or few more to place it, that is just fine! Take it for a ride...take it home if you like!

Hey Motopumps! Great sneak attack and grab. I'm sure you're second guessing your decision to come to the Southern Appalachians to ride but I assure you this has not been typical weather. I hope a sun beam follows you where ever you go. Every time I walk up to my bike, the sky turns black and opens up. I'm about sick of rain. Be safe riding home.

Yeah, what is up with this weather? My skin is starting to get all pruney.

We are having a great time, nonetheless. Kind of making our way and planning each day's riding based on the forecast and radar. Very happy to be down here for a few days!

Ride Safe-

Rob
