I just got home. Can you say S P E C T A C U L A R riding weather up there on the BRP? I knew you could. Low humidity, low temps, perfectly clear air so you could see for MILES AND MILES (y'all flatlanders ask someone from the hills what that means ) and very little traffic. It even was considerate enough to get really heavily overcast a few times right over me so that I actually felt COLD a few times.

In the process I snagged a few new TAG photos but have to decide if I want one of those or one somewhere new. We'll see soon.

The post I made above was from a very weak cell signal. After I eat I'll edit the post with a few more pictures and some information about the site. Yeah, I was having so much fun riding I never stopped for lunch.

Tag #4 - in TN this time





I think that might be enough to find it BUT I'll warn y'all that when I searched that information I found some places that weren't it.

Just curious if folks are having trouble finding this. I was afraid it would be simple with the signs in the photo. Then I tried searching for it using just that information and wasn't having much luck. Someone I know looked for it too with no joy.

Do I need to add some information?

Yup some more info might be helpful. I have used all the info from the displays. Learned 278th is stationed out of knoxville but have been having a difficult time chasing down a lead that would help with the display info. Info also suggest units are scattered all over middle and eastern TN. Then I get what seems to be a good leads and the pages are gone.

Hm. Okay, I'll say the road sounds like a final countdown out there in the Foothills of the Smokies.

Good idea - but I'd still be bruced since I'm not "hightech" and can't upload from the road...


Things are good and slowly getting back to NoRmal (as "normal" as it gets)

Man I figured lots of folks would remember passing this spot and it was too easy. Someone I spoke to didn't quite get the final countdown hint and missed that there was an odd word capitalized in there. 10 - 9 - 8 - 7 - 6 - 5 - 4 - ...uh... hm.

Man I don't want this to die. I'm hoping lots of folks will be passing near Cosby this weekend on rides. There's a few nice places to get a bite just down the road from the tag.

Located just south of Cosby on Hwy 321. Kind of a promotional display for the recruiting station there. I came from Johnson City this AM from my daughters house to claim this tag and the clue that finally got me close was figuring out it was on Hwy 321.

I live in Charlotte and y'all let me grab your tag.
New tag up shortly.

Tag # 5



The location of this tag hosts a large assault on it each year and is one of the most popular usually windy spots in the state. Go get it!

Gotta have a little faith in your fellow taggers. Think of Donald Southerland in "Kelly's Heros." "Think Righteous Thoughts Moriarity, stop with the negative waves."

West Virginia Tag-O-Rama had one sit for 50 days. Not in an obscure location, either. Literally, smack-dab in the middle of the state.
