Can't tomorrow, unless it's in the afternoon. Picking up M.E. at GSP early.

Go get it.

Made the grab off highway 2+4=6 in Townville. Painted on the side of an old store facing Oconee County. Always nice to be reminded corn fields are fertilized with chicken poop!!

This tower is in a town that shares a name with a major marine base in California. It is on the Main street in the town but can be seen from several others!!

Hmm. I might know this one.

Nice grab, and nice new tag.

Bucky, it's Natty's on Trinity (street) in Abbeville. The player piano works well, and they have a nice collection of dozens of songs for it. They collect donations for the animal shelter for songs. See the "money for mutts" sign?

Incidentally, they also have 26 beer taps, for those of you interested.

It's two blocks or so from my house.

Chris

Grab




Search after search brought me to this marker. I was confused.

Apparently this tiny battle has two markers. I rode around for more than 30 minutes in that one and a half square mile pasture and tiny creek area. :gah


Finally gave up. No fun riding around in a circle. No offense Nascar fans.

And then, there is was.






The correct marker is on Harrison Bridge road, not the popular Fork Shoals road marker

TAG




There is two of these quaint country stores side by side. The other one has been used as a tag before, but I don't think this one has.

Hint: get ur moonshine and hit the highay. Yeeee-HAW!

Yeah, me too. I was looking for the first one you found, and I never did find it, and then there was the one mortared into the rock. I'd say you did a better job of it than me

I think you forgot to drop that urine sample off at the doctor's office.

Opa, the other marker is in the front yard of the Hopkins Farm, another historic site at Old Hundred Road and Fork Shoals, but the farm is privately owned. There's a third marker there too! Something about Toney's store and Militia Muster. :shrug
