    Pretty sure we passed by each other some time yesterday. Was riding around with my son in the Tellico-Reliance-Farner area. Don't imagine there were too many Triumphs that color in the area yesterday.

    Did you pass me in downtown Tellico Plains while I was looking for the old cycle gear store?

    Well, I do go back home that way (through town) would have been 1430 or so. Either that or it was out on Hwy 68 (from Farner back to TP) or 315/30 earlier, but was only on them for a couple miles.

    Mike closed his store February 2014. The Cherohala Biker Gear store in the Charles Hall museum has picked up some items, like Klim and Olympia and other brands, but not all the luggage and other rider items like Mike had.

    Good pick with Benton. I need to get down there and give Brad some of my money.

    I was here yesterday,.... on this very bridge, but in the cage having gone up to the Beech Bottom trailhead for a hike to the Jacks River falls. Were you out with three others riding on the Forest Service Roads? At sunset I let a group of four riders pass me and then followed them to the Jacks River trailhead.

    OH BOY OH BOY HO BOY! My first Tenn. Tag.
    I found it here 34.988121, -84.634503 just a couple tics north of the 35th parallel
    There was a good bit of traffic, so I picked a spot where I felt I was out of the way.

    This is a clue

    This is a better clue

    This is the tag. from this location you can walk down the paved road to the bridge if you want to. The hiking trail looks like it has been used a good bit, but I did not see it going any where else. I guess this is the end of the trail?
