Wow! 12 minutes between the grab and the Bruce! I guess we were lucky there were no wrecks in the church lot.

Clue: Jeff Gordon might stop on this atoll between the bridges.

The little island between the "Double Bridges" on SC24/SC187 near Portman Marina.

New tag when I get back home.

Good job Chris. I waited on the bridge until about 4:40 hoping that you would show up.

Did you take the picture at the Camp before I posted mine or after?

I only missed you by a few minutes today -- twice.
After I posted my Bruced photo, I headed back toward home after putzing around the area a while. I stopped in Starr, saw that you had posted the island tag, and headed back to get it.

I took it before. Actually, I think that I may have been at the camp a few minutes before you. I must have left the camp/church site right at 3:15. I tried to upload the pic from there at the camp, but it wouldn't go through. I did a little exploring before trying again. You got the jump on me.

It was a great afternoon for riding, wasn't it? I had a great few hours on the bike, which was much needed after a bout of the crud with a low-grade fever Friday and yesterday.

New tag very shortly.

Chris

I didn't realize that it had also burned. The depot in Westminster was very nice in November 27, 2010, so the Google images must be older than that, though they do not date them.

I took the picture at the camp and had to stand next to the hole in the ground to get an AT&T signal. It took a while to upload, then we went to that little convenience store just off Providence Church Rd. to get my son a Mountain Dew. He fell asleep on the bike coming down 85.

I saw your Bruced Picture while we were having our snack and then left and rode over the the bridges to take the picture. We hung around until about 4:40 and then headed back to Greenville.

Yea, it was just a coincidence that Westminister has a depot that burned and the distances are almost exactly what you mentioned in the clues.

New tag


At the end of the last dirt road to the left before a two-digit U.S. highway dumps you into the, umm, heart of Georgia, you'll find this parking spot. It has to be the coolest parking spot in the state by a dam site.

The dirt road may remind you of potato chips.

If you don't want to do the extra-legal bit of riding up the curving sidewalk to get to that particular spot, a shot of your bike on the gravel will suffice.


Happy taggin',
Chris
