    I couldn't remember the tag so I'll rebump the whole cool thing.

    OK, fine! The goats ate the tag, so here's a replacement, for the purists out there who want to ride the high country. It's at 4,880 ft. And yes, you can get here on a street bike or in your family sedan. You'll want to wear a kidney belt, though ...

    I sense frustration. I was planning to move it this morning but my riding buddy from NC decided the forecast was too dire to get far from home. Gotta see where your replacement tag is. I still want to see the goats so let's declare this an either/or to try to get the game moving.

    Sounds like a good plan.

    I do like the new tag. Bonus it's got a little history to it. If I don't use slab it's 3 1/2 hours from me though.

    I'll give it some time to see if anybody down there will get it. Hopefully someone will because I've moved it myself too many times. Don't want folks to think (know?) I'm playing with myself. :lol3

    Okay, not that much time. Too close to a buddy's house. GRAB.

    Risked Sevierville at lunch time on a Friday. Zigged around traffic using White School rd to Walden Creek to Wears Valley. Not bad.

    New tag. You will have to beat about the Bush for this one. Cool Beans if you find it.

    :fpalm I never would have looked in Wears Valley, TN, Highlands NC is quite a ways away






    :deal:deal

    the goal is to get people out riding.
    If a tag is standing too long you will be asked to post a clue or a new tag
    :deal:deal

    Maybe a clue that wasn't a riddle would get more interest

    Do you mean the new tag? Bush Beans on 411 at the end of 92. I forget the name of the town but it's on the truck in the picture. :-)

    I was referring to the previous tag and others that people use pretty obscure clues.

    Bush beans is not hard to find they're on almost every stores shelf. ;)

    Those are cool trucks. They belong in the cool trucks thread.

    The Pickens Nose trail was easy and finding Goats on the Roof was straightforward. Any clues were extra information.

    Hey daGeeeze,
    Did you grab this pic from the Goats on the Roof off of 441 in GA just South of Clayton? Your comments about Sevierville traffic and the fact that your pic looks like a different style of building makes me wonder if you didn't grab the wrong one. Not trying to be a trouble maker. Just curious.

    Well if Tiger is still the tag, I'm going to snag it tomorrow morning when I pick up the North America tag!

    I'm confused. Tiger? As I read this the choices are between Goats in GA or Pickens Nose. What Tiger?

    Goats on the Roof on 441 in GA has a mailing address of Tiger, GA. Yeap, I meant the Goats tag.

    Shoot, I may go crazy and get Goats AND Pickens, and the NA tag, just to make sure I cover all my bases and stay in everybody's good graces :lol3

    LOL! Okay, so I really didn't do enough research on the Goats tag. If you get them both you can only place one at a time for the new tag. :deal :lol3l

    Happy tag hunting!

    Drago from the North American Tag-o-Rama wanted lunch, I told him the goats are for the tourists:
