    Clue:
    It's on a road with the same name at the intersection of a hwy that has two digits adding up to 9...in a county that starts with "R".

    That should do it for clues.

    I'd like to get on on this, so I'm posting to find the thread more easily. From my googling it looks like the current tag is about a two hour ride from me...hmm..maybe Saturday...

    Welcome to ADV Rider and ETTOR in particular. Two hours from the tag, eh?

    If my googling is correct, I believe so. This forum is a little odd to me, it's not like the others I've been on before. I've been lurking for a few weeks and I seem to relate to this thread the most, so I guess that's why this is my first area to post in. I live in Chuckey and I'm finishing up my last year of college at ETSU, so I'm all over East Tn, exploring, trying to rack up miles on my new Versys. Even had a nice little ride up to Watauga lake this morning before work.

    The tag was at the intersection of Paint Rock Rd and TN highway 72.

    Thanks I don't know if i'll actually make it to Alaska or not so no guarantees. I might try to post a few photos but I don't want to clutter up this thread since this is a tag thread and I'm not sure about the idea of starting my own thread.

    Take a look at Aarrff's thread "Aarrffing around Appalachia" for a way to get it done. You don't need as much detail as he has. A few posts so we can live vicariously through your adventure will keep us going. A quick note in here if you get time to remind us...

    Toss em over in the Tales from East TN Thread. It would be good to revive that anyway. If folks start using it again I'll get the upcoming events tracked and go hunting for Ride Reports that may not be included.

    ok for all those complaining about how this game doesn't move,

    GET OVER IT

    the thread killer

    NEW TAG

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]
    I won't bother with all the vague clues and riddles

    try Kimsey Mountain Road, or McFarland Road

    Somewhere near here the GPS said highway 68.........but it was rather rocky.

    [​IMG]

    this should get you into a beautiful ride through the Cherokee National forest. you can leave pavement near Reliance, Greasy Creek, or Harbuck

    I might be able to come up with coordinates if some one has to desktop ride it first

    HAVE FUN.......GO RIDE

    Looks like a nice area. Really flirting with the border to GA and NC there. Too far from home for me to chase it.

    On another note when I put in Rymer the results lit up the screen. I did find a potential dating site too: cousinconnect.com :lol3 :eek1

    Awesome riding area! I don't remember seeing this cemetery. I hope this tag stays open so I can find it :)

    The description of "it was rocky" pretty much describes Smith Mtn Road.. LOL..
