New Tag.

Tag 327

The GPS units will show this foot bridge as a real road over the river, but as you can see, it is not. The tag is from the Needmore Road side of the bridge in Swain County.

Go get it.

I'm on call this week and could not get too far from the house.

Well the bridge could be a road for the bike. I have been on trails narrower than that. Weight limit of 4 people?!?!?.......ok @800 lbs so that will hold you too. If you are on the wrong side just ride across.

Besides I did not see a sign that said no motorcycles.

Nice TAG I have not seen pictures of that before.

Happy Thanksgiving folks.
