    Just an old building. It sits next door to a Post Office. This Post Office, like most, is named for the town in which it resides. The town is named after some woods, the woods are named after a mountain. Travel 1/4 mile west of this building and you'll be in the neighboring town. You missed the official festival, but you might still see a white squirrel.

    Would love to, but it's hard enough to find time for one tag game with my work schedule. I ditched work at lunch today to pick this one up. Ran through 3 major thunderstorms between the Bent Creek Parkway access and the tag, thinking for sure I'd get Bruced and hoping the laptop in my backpack would stay dry. Luckily my high speed run south down 215 to get it posted was all dry with no tourists to slow things down :evil

    One other hint, even though there are several prominent ones already listed. I mention it because it's worth a stop in.

    The next driveway west of this building is the entrance to the area's newest brewery. They have a tasting room and give free brewery tours every day at 4.
    Ask for Oskar :D

    Fri-Sun they do tours at 2, 3, 4, and 5pm. Tasting room open noon-10pm. Tomorrow is Friday....:evil


    To you flatlanders - this is the closest it's been to sea level in a while. One could make a run up the Saluda grade and grab it relatively easy I would think....:ear

    To you hill dwellers - I know several of you regulars live within 30 miles. No whining if it gets sniped and punted gentlemen :deal

    It's been up here a while now and maybe they are tuning out. If that's the case punt it all the way to the edge of Ducktown. Though I have heard a Lone Wolf howling now and again.

    If you do come down to grab it the brew is nice. All the taps are tasty and you can tell they are really happy to be brewing in this area. Also stop in downtown on broad street of the county seat at the brewery that shares the towns' name. The pilsner is good and I really like the dunkel, though Cuttle told me it's less than authentic and not the real deal :dutch

    I know exactly where it is, but it is safe from me until next week. I'm trying to recruit a newbie to get the tag though.

    Ok, but where is it?

    Just curious, getting ready to go to Deadhorse and catch my flight home.

    Way to go Doog! :clap Hey Phreak! It was in downtown Pisgah Forest one door past the Post Office. Just down the road from the Olin Mill site....several fun little roads in that area between there and the DuPont Forest, Cedar Mountain and East Fork French Broad.

    Thanks Arrff. I wanted to take it further west but waffled on where to take it for to long and wasted a little time riding in a direction other than where I wanted to take it so I settled on this spot. It's a nice ride anyway you chose to get to it.

    Honestly since the bridge is essentially parking in the middle of the road I'm fine with the sign being the tag, so either can count.

    Great Placement Doogiepooch! I know exactly where that is. Great area to ride. Definitely worth going after. Parking in the road shouldn't be too much of an issue as most times I'm riding there, I see about 1 car an hour.

    I agree. Unfortunately cabin business is an 8 days a week ordeal right now. Busiest time of the year. You make hay when the sun shines and it shines the brightest right now. Someone needs to buy these things so I can have a normal life!

    Edit: I just realized this is the other side of the bridge. Well I aint going back out. I will post up the new tag unless anyone has any major objections.
