If you get Bruced please share that though. It's kinda fun for everybody that way.
yeah

I wanna know who I bruced on the Cradle Of Forestry tag ... I know I've seen that silver bike on the NC tag-o-rama ... and I know he was looking when he went by as I was snapping the shot ...

guess I'm gonna scroll thru the back pages and figger out who it was and call him BRUCE

you have to load the pic on a website somewhere and link to it ... smugmug, photobucket, etc

then click the yellow icon (with a mountain on it) above the message box and paste in the url

So. My Harley buddy and I are taking a ride today and I thought I might want to chase a tag. Then I checked and found it's 300 miles one way. >sigh< Looks a little outta my range and a LOT outta his range. Somebody give this one a kick somewhere.

Hmmm, 550 miles round trip, might be a good reason to break in my chain and tires.

This park is really nice. Crazy nice mountainbiking trails along a ridgeline. Plus a nice lake.

It just doesn't seem right when the Appalachian tag is closer for NC-Okie than for me when I live in the dang mountains.

666 mile round trip for me. Definitely not going for this one!

I was up in Johnson City looking at the MOA rally there and thought about running up to this one. Nah. Not today.

Way to go there krishl!! I was wondering if anyone further north was watching this tag.

Looking forward to see where it goes next.

Somebody go have fun!
