Alright this one has me stumped. And even after google searching name I can't find it. I found his grave site in greenville but can figure out this memorial.

It's in the middle of the town where the movie Birth of a Nation supposedly took place...
Alot of southern manufacturing history involved with this one.

You know, I just did a quick search, I don't think the Internet knows about this place... I've read about it somewhere though.
So look near hotel hill. That should make it doable.
It's worth checking out, especially now that I know it's off the maps.

Grab!!

Finally able to go make a grab! Now I've got a problem finding time to go get a new tag! I know 6 hours...I'll try to hurry!

What this Grab doesn't show...I spent about 30 minutes in this spot trying to get my Flickr iPhone app to give me the BB Code...no luck. Then the Safari app would only let me go to the mobile version of the web page...again, no BB Code. Nothing. I had to ride an hour back to the office for a meeting I was sure to be late to, get through that meeting, and then get on my computer to make it all happen...all the while knowing I'd get beat out for this grab since the day was so beautiful for riding. Not to mention that on that hour drive, there's a house in the middle of the road. Someone decided to move their house. Not just a mobile home...no...this was a huge brick house that covered the entire road and then some. Luckily found a side road and skipped around it. Anyway...that's my adventure riding for today!

Sandrion and I started after it this morning, but I broke a spoke on my rear wheel and popped the tube...It's always something

New Tag

It looks A LOT more interesting than it is. If you've been to the new Wal-Mart "Where the mountains begin", you've more than likely seen this. You'd think it had some sort of historical significance, but I can't find any.

Yes, that's a little bit of gravel where the pic is taken. You could actually get a decent long shot from the Wal-mart parking lot though (for those of you less inclined to gravel.)

This boring tag was due to a late grab leaving me little time to get a really cool tag. I'll do better next time!

Woohoo I can get this one, if I can get off work in time. It's hunting season so I spend most of my free time in a tree with my bow.
