From TAG to new TAG, that was simply the best route ever..

This TAG acquired in spirit of,
and dedicated to: MotoFetcher

Way to Go ValveCrusher!!!!

Now who is going to grab it from Avery County and take it to Beaufort County?

Remember you have plenty of time to place it if you grab it.

To go after the Avery Co tag I had to ride this road for a little bit. It was a fine ride until I got near Grandfather Mountain. Once there I had to quit taking in the views to dodge two legged zombies stumbling around with with a camera stuck to their face.



Where I had to see sights like these.











All in all it was a great fall ride. Maybe if I am lucky I can get back up the hill before cold weather sets in. I'd go again this weekend but I am off for the coast and to place the Beaufort Co tag.

Awesome pics fishHunt. Rain two days ago and some heavy winds yesterday and today are going to take their toll on the leaves. Still lots of color out there but I'm afraid the peak might have been when you took those pics.

I kept up with the miles today and ended up riding 430 miles today to place this tag.

If you visit this "Beautiful Harbor" and park your ride in front of this building, you will find "Miss Eva's" collection behind the blue door on your left.

That should be enough clues for a google-fu white belt to find this one!

Well it is 175 miles and 3 hours from me. It's dads birthday and the transmission int he car deceided not to shift out of first this morning. swapped out the Caprice with the Blazer for the wife and limped it home. Looks like a TV valve or servo issue with it. Crap.

Anyway Have to be a dads later so a 6 hour round trip and 350 miles is out of the question today. (my only day off).

Safe from me.

Ray


Oh yea looks like the police put some stickers on the door since the street view was made.
