Welcome to the forum. There is also a monthly dinner in Columbia http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=523873 if you are interested in meeting some of the inmates. Just go to the last few pages for updates on the dinner thread as the first page does not get updated anymore.

Yeah....2nd chance...1st impression. Guess I screwed that one up. Should read a little closer next time. Anyhow thanks for the welcome. Hopefully my posts get better as we go here.

Again, thanks for the welcome. I look forward to making some of the monthly dinners and to meeting you. I ride often and most likely have seen some of you around over the last couple of years. Anyhow I am either on a Scrambler or a Street Triple. So if you ever see me don't be shy.

Went the other way.

Sorry PeeDee,
I decided to go for the upstate tag and didn't have the time or energy to make the loop and grab both. You've got new blood in your area now, so someone is sure to swoop down on it soon. You never know, one of the old timers might just pick it off when you least expect it.

No problem. I know whoever makes it there will really enjoy the area. There is an old power generator station there that is really cool. I didn't see any Catawba worms, but the old building with a ceramic roof was super neato!

Thanks for the clues.

Thanks for all the clues PeeDee, but I can't go riding until this weekend.

Current tag.

I think I've found you out PeeDee, but I won't know until I ride there tomorrow.

Failure!

I went right to what I thought was the tag and was right above it, but was stopped by a locked gate. I then went down the river to another power plant, but could not duplicte the view. I would have kept looking, but my playtime was all used up. I'll be interested to find out how close I really was.

Poor old Ricepaddy--

Here is your photo-clue:



This is from the other side of the water. Extra Super-Bonus points for getting this photo too. (Recommend experienced rider and/or DS to get down the unpaved road to this side.)

I am pretty sure I found the gate you are taling about. The tag is on the West side of the river. I will just give the location.

Plus...

There is another tag on the way from this tag to the extra-bonus tag.

Missed tag.

Yep. That locked gate on Green Rd. is exactly where I got stopped and I would have gotten a photo, but there were too many trees. My Google satelitte view of the power plant was blurred out so it was difficult to know if I had the right one. I saw that other road, but it looked like dirt and you said the road to the tag was paved. Is it paved?
Anyway, I had fun riding back in there and I'll go back and get it if nobody else does. BTW, your photo at the spillway is too obvious. I went over it twice yesterday, but didn't bother to stop for a picture.
Can't wait to see if someone goes for the real tag today now that everyone knows where it is.

Happy motorcycling! Rice--

The last mile or so (guessing distance) to the tag is not paved.
