I hope I didn’t make the clues to hard for this one. It is really an easy place to access. If you are coming to get this from outside the immediate area you could even stay at the campground located at the south end of this road. They don’t have showers though, so you will need to wash in the creek.

Tag!



Wash Creek Road at the Blue Ridge Parkway. Hopefully you can read the 5000. Is the Birmingham area out of bounds on this one or do those mountains still count as appalachain????

It's a Forest Service Road so it doesn't show up. This link should work. Between bent creek and north mills river.

New tag


This one is on the same road as Barber motorsports park just a little higher. Let me know if it's out of bounds and I'll post up something closer. Most of the rest of what I've got is nc mountains though so I thought this one would be more fun.

That spot is on the same road as 29 Dreams Motorcycle Resort, not Barber.

Nice grab. It's kinda cool to throw a tag a few hundred miles and somebody grabs it the next day. Where to next?

Man, I hadn't even started to consider where that was. Good to see this thing moving.

Well, since Barbers was brought up, and there is a WERA race and the Ride for Kids event going on tommorow there should be several inmates to get this.

Bonus if you come out to the Ride for Kids, and gimme a holler!
Only a 35.00 entry, going to a great cause
