Seems pretty obvious to me....everybody wants to ride in the mountains. The mountain folks don't want to leave the good roads to take it to Flatland (10%). The Flatlanders can't wait to take it back to the mountains though(60%) so they get to ride some fun roads.....

Way to go JC on snagging that tag. I'd love to go get the new one. It looks like a hoot. Unfortunately cabin business is keeping me busy this weekend.

Got It!!!

What a ride.....I have been looking out my office window all week saying I just should not be here!!!!!! I knew someone would get the 25/70 one today! When Max Patch popped up I just had to go! Having grown up in Haywood County this one was easy for me. I have spent many a night up on the top....I should have taken a picture of the parking lot when I got there, it was full!



Night ride...great fun!!!

Have fun!

Aw shucks Shandy. I was going to head over there this afternoon after I got done working at the cabins. Good job snagging a night tag and getting the next one up right away. A quick question... Will that water crossing still be there?

All the many times I have been through there it's been there. With the recession and all it may have been taken too!

Definitely. I have a general idea where, but that only narrows it down to several 100 square miles. Not that i will be coming that way today.

Don't worry Shandy. I'm heading over there to grab it. I found it on the interweb thingy just fine. Good clue BTW. I really don't care if I get bruced. That's an area I've been wanting to explore for a long time (just like Max Patch) I'll let you know if Bev Perdue cut the water off on the crossing.
