Excellent. Way to get on the board.



I bet a lot of the others are at the DS ride scheduled for today...



I may have to lay low until I can get new tread on the tractor later in the week.

This one's a little more obscure

On the way up there I ran into an old timer. His name was "Sawyer".....last name "Williamson".

He said, " If'ns someone goes after this'n on one of them fancy street motorcicles, they can make it, but they better be goin' slow and well, I recon they best come at it from the overlook. And when's they find it, the road ahead'll look a might temptin' but ifn's they smart, they'd turn around and head back from where's they came".






Hope you enjoy it.....happy hunting!

Aw c'mon. A red gate. An entrance into some property. Thats not tough at all! AFAIK there's only one of those in each county. So, given the hint, we get to find the ONE in Wlmsn Co. Ha!

The old timer also mentioned it was the only road with that name near an overlook in that county......

This one's a little tougher....it doesn't show up on street view, but if you had a birds eye view at least you could see the gravel road.....

EDIT: If you're using Google Maps to find this one, better not. They've got the roads a little wrong. bada-bing . . bada boom

Since its such a nice day and to keep everyone from spending it on the innerwebs looking for this...this tag is on Fernvalle Rd which is also known as Old State hwy 96 in the Leipers Fork area.

Word of caution...the road through here was damaged by the flood and is in the process of being repaired. Many sections of rough pavement interspersed with patches of gravel. They'll sneak up on you.

Now, git.

this game/my need for speed... has cost me too they were waiting for the FJR on my way to the Erin tag
oddly, it will cost me more to go to traffic school than to pay it.
