Eh?

Not the new tag

Too much drama. There are new fence posts up indicating that there is likely to be a fence which I should have understood to mean they don't care for visitors. For inquiring minds, it is here: N 35.08598 W 82.19337

Of course, if someone has already gone to grab it, it is all yours.

Wouldn't want anyone getting injured in any way getting a tag, certainly not by being shot at.

There is a cemetery parking lot across the street you can make the tag photo from.

If any one has bad feelings about this tag, let me know. I have others that can be used.

I ride past this place quite often, and like someone else said, schazzam, never saw that sign on the building before.

Never occurred to me that a 'general store' owner would shoot at people stopping to look.

He is a bit of a weird person.I stopped and ask him about the old trucks.He told me to wait right there.He went inside and got a shot gun and propped it up on the outside wall.Then told me the trucks were not for sale and that if I came back there I'd get an ass full of lead.I apologized for being a bother and high stepped to my truck.The next day,he had no trespassing signs in the windows of the building and trucks.He also wrote not for sale on the truck windows with white shoe polish.I think he has had a lot of people making inquires about the trucks,and he thinks someone keeps sending people to ask about the trucks, in hopes of buying them.I'm not sure but something is off.My inquiry was back in the mid 90's, so that man may have passed, and his kids may own it now.He was in his 60's,maybe 70's back then.He seemed to ornery to leave this world any time soon.

Well Ben, I guess if nothing else we have probably generated some interest in the place

Kidding aside though, that does sound a little harsh on his part. There are fence posts up, but no fence, yet.
And I have stopped at the lot across the street more than once to get my water bottle. With your added info, I think if I were going after the tag I might just take the photo from there.

Let's give the guy the benefit of the doubt... Maybe he just didn't like Ben.
