Western NC Tag-O-Rama!

Great ride thanks for sending me to Walnut, never explored that little corner before..

Took some VERY back roads over to 209


Hustled down the Rattler.. Just about the only place you can take your hands off the bar..


Stopped for a little refreshment

The lady was mean to me :-(
My snack was $2.somethin and she insisted there is a $5 minimum on debit.. Lady, I just bought $22 worth of gas!

Along down past Waynesville I hit the parkway

I made you guys a totem

Don't worry, no alcohol no smell.. It actually has some pinhole leaks.. No open container woes!

I slipped the totem under the tag


Here is your new tag, sorry if it's been used before, I just got here and haven't read the whole thread!

Good spot for the new tag. Are they picking blueberries up there yet? We're supposed to have a bumper crop this year.

No blueberries yet.. Even blackberries are still 7-10 days till the first ripe at elevation.. The plants are crazy loaded tho.. Will be a good year.

I'm looking on my phone now.. Baltimore Branch sounds right the dirt section was big pine I believe.

I'll check the Gazetteer when I get home but pretty sure that's it.

The deepest section and the decent was a lil sketchy on my 1100!

Big Pine and Baltimore Branch

MayorofBBQ and Cuttle,



Holy steep rocky road Batman.. Too much big rock. A few sections of nice packed road but I'm glad I went up the Barnard side and down the 209 side. I don't think I could have gotten up the 209 side.

And people actually live up there. Oh well. It was fun. No pictures-too busy holding on to the handlebars.

On to the next tag.
