I got the city pretty quick.


105 miles for me. Maybe if I loaded the bike on the hitch carried, drove there and then unloaded the bike for the pic...yeah, probably not.

I have grabbed 4 and placed 4,

The Tagging out here has been slowwwww. Since I arrived on May 15th every other Tag has been mine. I post them in the open and easy to find but they sit 3 to 4 days at a time.

If it works out and I have it before I leave I am going to punt it somewhere off beat and hidden, .

Nice.


But it's still OK so can't they just stand on their foot pegs to see the tag anywhere you place it?


(Yes I know OK has some hills and mtns, etc. It was a joke. We all know Fl is really the flat state with Space Mtn being one of the highest points.)

Pretty close! Just different riding styles out here. 85% of the bikes are H-D's, I have only seen 2 dualsports a KLR with a 4 sale sign and a XRL with a guy in a T-shirt, shorts and sneakers on. It did have an aftermarket exhaust and racks but I was in the car when I saw him.

Roof going on the house right now and the shop tomorrow so the next big step will be the siding. It reached 98 degree's today and they have been working on the house since about 8 am and they are still up there. I do not know how they handle the heat.

Looks like the buyer on the lathe and mill backed out which is good and bad news. Mom wants the space in the garage I want the machines just can't figure out how to get them to NC.

A Bridgeport Series 1 clone and an horizional lathe with a 15" swing and 5 foot bed is a little more then an U-Haul can handle and the cost of a flatbed hauling them to NC is more then what I can buy them for in NC.

Oh you got to try the Pimento Dog with homemade pimento cheese!

Been looking for a while but no luck. I think I've got the right town and even the right 2 digit hwy but not finding the dog gone restaurant. I think I found a competitor but not this one. Any more clues available or am I missing something obvious?

I tried and couldn’t find it through regular searches. But the building has an unusual roof line and I was able to spot it easily enough from satellite images, you just need to look in the right place . So take another look at those OLD roads.
