I lost fair and square - I got there late (just look at the amount of sunlight left on my pic).

Great road!

Thanks I was hoping we would start going into some of our great history that we have in this part of the country for the tags. The terrrian features and mtns are pretty and cool but I was hoping we could do this instead, at least for a couple of tags. I also enjoy learning new things about our state. When I seen that I said that would be a cool tag. Then when I researched it out to place some clues I was like man that is neat. I think that that is what this game is all about, Yea get out and ride, but more so to see and learn more about your state and be proud of it.

Here is a pic of Douglas Falls. It is on the same road. Go all the way to the parking area at the deadend of the road and follow the trail. It is quite impressive and well worth the short hike from the parking area.

Ack! Do you get extra points if someone takes a picture of you jumping over the geyser on your bike Evil Knievel style?

Once again stuck at work. By the way if you come by the shop I'll give all ADV riders a free Suzuki hat or dohickey while I've got them.

Sorry no free Kawi hats unless you purchase a Kawi!

However we do have free coffee and all the resources you need to win this tag-o-rama for. By the way I think the next tag should be at Asheville High tonight w/ Obama on your motorsickle.

Come on.

A beautiful day to ride and noone went and got this tag. Let me suggest a route for U when U do go get it. After making the tag, cont on 70 East to 80 take 80 to the BRP go to Mt Mitchell state park eat at the resturant there and then go wherever but 80 is a real treat, if U like curves. U wont hit them till U get close to the top but when U do be ready to lean in to it.
