Got a little ride in between the monsoons so I grabbed this tag. Had a bear run across the road in front of me on Catawba Mountain. I think he was hiking the AT. Should have a new tag tomorrow evening.

Close encounters with bears can get your attention. I came sliding downhill around a gravel road on my GSA only to see a large bear standing in the middle of the road. I had to get the bike straightened out before I could get on the binders. When I got stopped I was way too close to a bear in the middle of a one lane gravel road. No chance to turn around and no room to sprint by. Luckily after shaking his head around at me he decided I was bigger and left.

Good grab!

New Tag! In West Virginia this time. It's well worth the hike to go to the top.

Say... With the NC tag moving so far East maybe somebody'll get bored and get this one.

I got my eye on it, just have not had time. I have to go to WV next weekend, if I ride, I will move it. Plus West Virginia seems to be a dead zone. I moved the WV tag and the WV Court House tag a few weeks ago and they are still sitting. One in Ripley the other in BlueField.
