A thousand pardons of great one!

Sorry Kaloni. I just ran down to see a ballet at Spoleto and had to turn around and come home the next day. I have family in Isle of Palms and I go down there a couple times a year to visit. Private message me your # and I'll call you next time I know I'll be in town. Rice---

I'll admit this combo of heat & humidity is what's been keeping me inside as of late. I have been getting out at about 8:30 p.m. in the woods near my house on the DR, but that's about it.

Me too.

Chris,
I've been achin' to go get your tag, but work won't let me do it - maybe this weekend, but I'm sure someone will have gotten it by then.
I sympathize with you as I hate to see one of my own tags in limbo.
PS. I plan to attend the dinner Saturday at Yesterdays.

Oh, that doesn't bother me. My was to bump it so that all the SC tags were on page one (while I held all four).

Graaaaaaaab!



Aiken Public Art program painted horse in front of Sotheby's International Realty at 120 Laurens St. in Downtown Aiken.

Hey Chris, Nice country around Aiken. I rode down the 302 and the landscape got really nice once I was south of Wagener. By the way, if you grab a tag would that be known as a land grab?


This particular horse was painted by the artist Corinne Kennedy and was sponsored by Laissez Faire Sotheby's Intl' Realty.

I'll have a new tag up just as soon as I go get it.

New tag.

Okay boys and girls. Here is the new Midlands tag.



Continuing on the horse theme, this town is also famous for horse racing. If you are downtown, you cannot miss this tower which honors the patron saint of the city. It is well within the boundaries of the Midlands TOR.

Have fun and watch that heat - I feel like a fried egg after going for this one.

Go forth and grab! Rice--

Congrabulations!

Excellent grab PeeDeeRider. When I put the tag in Camden, I had a hunch you might grab it - glad to see you back in the game. Here is some more information about the tower.

New Tag

Cool. I am glad to be back. The last few weeks have not allowed any time for riding.

New Tag - lazy clue:

34*17'06.25"N
80*31'28.16"W

Side note: I put the bike down in some loose gravel just after taking this pic. If you ride around this tag, watch out for asphalt turning into loose gravel that looks just like the asphalt. I now have a scraped and bruised left knee and bent side fairing bracket on the KLR.

KLR crash.

Hey PeeDee,
Bummer about the crash. Hope your knee is not too badly banged up. I don't have GPS, but I looked up the coordinates on my grid map and it looks like a pretty rural area. I may need more help to find it, but I suspect some of the better equipped riders will nail it before I do.

Put some ice on that knee and keep on riding. Rice--

Yeppers. I have had ice on it since getting home. Thanks. It'll take alot more than that to keep me off the bikes. Really, the worst part of the whole thing is the torn knee of my favorite Levis.

I will come up with another non-gps clue for ya. (It is not google-street viewable.) Were you able to get teh location name from the L&T. I am pretty sure you can google-search gps coordinates.

Chris

Found it.

No need for another clue thanks. I found it using a conventional grid map and cross-referencing with Google Maps. Pretty cool. Now, to see if I can get it without crashing in the gravel. Rice--
