river crossing? there's no river crossing. In fact, it's on a paved road.

just a little ways off hwy 48 in Pinewood, Tn. But hey, you got out and went for a ride on a day like this - you definitely have my respect!

Hmmm... I even did my research, found the directions on the website "Continue on Piney River Rd about 1/2 mile, cross the river, and at the top of the hill, turn left on Piney River Rd N"

I believe my mistake (GPS mistake) was coming up McCaleb Road from Pinewood Road. That route brings you in the back way.

Anyway, great tag Mr Breeze. It got me out exploring some new country with gravel and river crossings

Never run out of traction, real estate, and ideas at the same time.

Funny thing about a gps- they always try to bring you in to a destination so you approach from the right. I think that's to avoid turning across traffic?

No idea why but I've had ZUMO lead me to some very strange places with no tag or destination in sight.

nice day for a ride!

Last summer we rented a cabin in the mountains of North Georgia. PLugged the address into the Garmin and took off. It took us to a logging road with a gate....

We found the cabin a couple of miles away, just by luck, really.

I've got my ears on.



Better luck in finding this tag is taking 48 between Pinewood and I40, look for discrete signage off 48.
My Zumo also took me a bit off the beaten path.



Sent from the seat of my FJR.

New tag

Between work, the silly season and the bitter cold, this ole cat has been napping. Looked like today was the best chance to grab one.

This looks familiar to me so if this is a repeat let me know, I've got a back-up.
For now the only hint will be "Get Your MoJo Working" but we've been in this area before.
