Way to go Darmie!! We'll have to try and get together the next time I'm in the area(Oct. at the earliest).

Love the scoots. Btw, have you been there before? I think it's a pretty neat park with all the trails, boardwalks over the marsh and along the Intracoastal Waterway. And I've never seen many other people whenever I've been there. I don't think a lot of locals are even aware it exists.

Darmie, after reading your last post again, it seems certain you hadn't been there previously. It's not like it's right next door to you, after all. I'm glad you enjoyed your ride to find it.

Since I heard about it from a friend, I go there often when I'm in the area.

dyrtybyrd. that was a great tag you had there. You could not see anything from the main road. It was fun spending the day on the ruckus.
I hope this tag has not been done before. If so please let 1 of us know & we will swap out

No, I haven't been there before, although Adam has and knew where it was located. I do want to go back and check out the walking trails. My problem and I shouldn't be this way is, on these tags, I'm about business. and getting it posted, then play around. We went to the McDonald down in town for internet. I should not be this way, but I've read the reports where other riders were not and lost a tag. Thanks for a great tag. It was fun on the ruckus.

Now, does someone need more clues or we just being complacent? I will say that the area near there offers some great shops and nice food. You could even catch a movie while your in town. You could even take in a helicopter ride just right up the road.

I agree thanks for the nudge.
It's a park, on the old air force base in myrtle beach.

Anyone?

Graaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaab !

Finally! Here is the pic:



War Bird Park off Farrow Parkway at the beach end of the Myrtle Beach Airport. Here is a pic of the sign:


I stopped at a McDonalds that had WI-FI, but Smugmug would not upload my photo. After riding all the
way back to Columbia, I found my photo in Smugmug. Anybody else getting fed up with Smugmug?

Anyway, it was a gruelling 400 mile ride, but I just had to rescue the tag from those lazy east staters.
New tag up soon and it won't be in Myrtle Beach.

Rice, tag rescue technician, Paddy

New tag.



In 1780, a cheeky fellow by the name of Tarleton, burned the plantation home of his schoolboy chum,
Henry Mouzon. II. Henry was able to escape into the nearby Puddin' Swamp. This is just one of the
Swamp Fox Trail murals. Good luck and enjoy the riding.

Yes, great job.
I've done those 400 mile rides.
Glad it's picked up.

Adam, also sounds like we need to go get this thing and bring it back home again...

Two in a row will make a rooster crow!

Thanks! Great tag and fantastic clue. I spent 10 minutes online researching the Swamp Fox trail and an entire day riding it to find the correct mural. I am a huge fan of 10 minutes on the computer and 10 hours in the saddle!

I had never seen the trail or Turbeville and it was a great day for a ride. The icing on the cake was grabing the Lowcountry tag this morning on my way. Thanks again for a great excuse to blow off the honey-do list and terrorize some wildlife. Jeff
