    went for a new brakes shakedown test ride yesterday and got caught in a storm. I didnt have any rain type gear on so i was up on the bluff on pine creek road in the pouring down rain, lightning and wind. I felt like i was riding in peru in the rainy season or something...
    the old TA handled everything without really complaining though.

    It isn't helping that the last couple weekends haven't cooperated (work and weather)

    If some one gets the current one and moves it towards me I'll try to move it north again in hopes of getting more interest (if another Ga inmate doesn't move it to chattanooga again)

    I'm not sure about this weekend, hitting a big schedule date at work and we're behind)

    As I was out riding today I started thinking...I know it's dangerous....maybe there should be a time limit so if there is a standing tag for X time with no interest by anyone in getting it, a new tag is posted.

    I know if I had not had things to do this AM I probably could have gotten the current tag, It should be easy enogh to find, I just didn't want to deal with Chattanooga (Maryville was bad enough).

    There has to be more people out there than the few on this thread, there's an entire other website for East TN adventure riders.

    Wahat do Yall think?

    Quite dangerous indeed.

    I, personally, don't see the point in a time limit. Especially on a tag that is easily found via a web search.

    By "I just didn't want to deal with Chattanooga (Maryville was bad enough)" I assume you mean traffic?
    This tag really isn't close enough to town for that to be a concern, although on a holiday weekend all bets are off.

    Things have slowed down dramatically on all the TORs I'm subscribed to. I guess it's just that time of year when everyone has stuff to do (family, ballfield, church, work, etc.) on the weekends.

    As far as the "take it North to get more people playing" sentiment goes; if they have the ability to read this thread, they can also access Google. When someone from the northeastern part of the state decides to man (or woman) up and get the damn tag, he or she can place it as far Northeast as he or she sees fit. It's not our fault that there's a TON of badass riding right here in our backyard that we want to share with our fellow advriders (and lurkers too [sign up already ya forkin fork!] )

    rant over

    Have fun and be careful this holiday weekend,
    Will

    Willbilly, I've been pissed at you for a week or so for holding onto the Georgia Tag for so long. But then I start to read all that's going on with you......the funerals, face-plant, etc. Then I read THIS post.....
    Good words...so all's forgiven....no longer pissed. Now go post up a new GA Tag.
    Tennessee guys...he's right. We even had one idiot from NW GA go get the GA Tag at Jekyll island and bring it all the way to Cloudland Canyon all in less than 24 hours! What an idiot! You can get this tag without dealing with Chatt traffic!

    I don't need more hints, its very easy to find with google. Games not wrecked yet

    I don't know the Chattanoga area enough to know where the congestion might be.

    my comment about moving it north comes from several other peoples comments. Looking back I guess several of them haven't subscribed (at least 2 are in chattanooga), for me the Southern Cherokee forest is where I ride most and like you said there's a TON of badass riding.

    I get a little impatient and would like to see more people playing, I don't ride that much and I have gotten 3 out of 10 tags. When I get the next one I'll put one up that ya'll will have to work for.

    it's all about having fun GAME ON

    I will volunteer myself to get the tag when I wake today as long as its not raining. Coming back from the Gap today almost resulted in the losing of my life. It was terrible.... Anywho anyone have any preferences where the new tag should be place? North? And that is only if it is not raining. :freaky

    I'm not making any suggestions, lets get it somewhere different.

    I'm glad you made it back, I was working on my proprety yesterday when I felt 2 drops got the tractor in the barn and the skys opened up, and if that wasn't bad enough the lightning was real close.

    glad to see a little life here again...

    I say put the tag where you want to. If there are people in the northern part of the state who are serious about playing they are more than welcome to come get the tag and move it north.


    I made thread about this tag a while ago over on tnadvriders.com

    if any of yall are on some other TN riders site post up a link there.

    It was the site of the last seat of Cherokee govt before their removal by federal troops... or so I've read.

    That's where I thought it was......now if it'd just quit raining long enough to go get it.
