Anytime screamin! I enjoyed being your guide. Now on to Durty dabbers this weekend! We should go get a tag up there.

Tag is still out there as i didn't find it.

Went up the Twitty river but guess I ended up at the wrong dead end spot. Didn't have time to ride around looking because another storm was rolling down the mountain and I wanted to get going east as quickly as possible with the wind and sideways rain at my tail. Might not have picked the best day to go out for a tag but it was still fun. The usually lazy rivers were sure flowing a nice rushing volume of whitewater.

Grab!!

I've been unable to do much leisure riding lately, and so when I saw the current tag spot I couldn't pass it up. One of my favorite places to be is in the RWMA, especially the Conway River tract. Fun ride.

Also had to try out my new iPhone helmet cam mount, the "Outride" by Mophie, I'd love to know what you guys think of the video quality.

Feel free to skip to the end to see the actual tag, or watch the whole ride from the RWMA entrance all the way to the SNP boundary/tag location. It's 14 minutes long, yeah, I'm kind of a slow rider compared to many other videos I've seen.

New tag coming in a few minutes:

New tag:

On this bridge:



In the first guardrail post in front of my bike:



Can you zoom in on those signs?



If you need a clue, look for the word that comes between kindergartner and kindhearted in the dictionary.

I always wondered how impressionist painters saw the world.

I think I crossed that bridge yesterday afternoon, but I must have blinked and missed the duck chick.

Yeah, some data must have gotten lost in the upload to you tube, it looks crystal clear in full screen on my computer.

Thank you thank you! I'm sorta new to the area's byways and definitely new to the ride (1430 miles as of this outing) so this was actually tough to find...

For the record, the word between kindergarten and kindhearted is kindest, not Kinderhook. I literally searched a map for hours for a T in the road with a bridge and a county line (couldn't see which just that it was a county line sign)

With that I bring you the next tag:



Mr. Mouse is under the trim resting on exposed foundation of the building in the corner nearest the bike.

Clue - if you search for the name of the road on Wikipedia the name of the chapel in the photo shares the name with the church that appears at the top of the web page.

Very sorry about that, I guess I should stop trusting the internet so much!

Nice Ride!

All in jest...I hope playing will help me see more of my surroundings. Until then I'm a victim of my own inexperience.
