After 90 miles, we made it there by 10:45 am today. No Rat! :)




Would have taken the rat on a little trail ride on the Blue Ridge Trail. (Pic below not technically on the trail).



Probably for the best, one section was a bit rough going for me. Not sure the rat really likes to get muddy :) (Or go that slowly! ).

Still a fun ride on a day with almost perfect weather. Fun to see so much taggin:) Next time!

Looks like big T got there first. Dropped it there because it is 5 minutes from work, and the location is cool. Smack Dab in a regular neighborhood, you literally ride between two houses to get to it

New Tag! Go to the Audie Murphy Monument on Brush Mt. When you get to the top take a left to the power line.



The rat is under the pointy rock at the guy wire nearest the road.

Oh, its been a while since I've been up to Audie Murphy's crash site. I wish I would have checked this earlier today, as I couldn't mow grass in the rain, but I could have gone for a ride.

Oh well there's always tomorrow.

Popular spot, as I was coming down the mountain several TVR folks were coming up the road in a Jeep of all things. They said something about drinking wine.

Grab. Note to self. Riding forest roads after three days of rain is stupid.



Also, failure to follow directions exactly led to this



Went farther than I had to I thought I needed to go all the way to the monument.
