I recommend against selling them used
I can get away with it cause I'm older than he is, ya see!
that's the excuse I use since I can't keep up with him on the trail....
New Tag !!!!!!!!
Since the weather is so nice, I thought I'd hurry and get the new tag posted. Some may have time to get it today . Now for the clue......... We've all heard the old saying "you can't get there from here".........Well, that really rings true for us North Carolina folks who are trying to find this location :huh I think it is about 30-40 miles from the prior tag as the crow flies in a southwest direction.
I've been lurking here for a while, haven't posted until now. I love this site, I've learned a lot and enjoyed a lot of ride reports here. I hope to post some of my own soon. I make several trips each year to this tag location, and love to camp, fish, and hike there. Can't get away for a couple of days, but I'd sure love to head up that way! If it happens to stay there for a little while, I'll have to make a run up that way and grab it. Great location NCHB. Is the river back up to normal levels on the way to the tag ?
BTW, I see that you live in Hayesville. We should get together for a ride sometime.
I'd love to ride with ya anytime. Not to say that there is a river of any kind around this area but...............if there was it's probably flowing pretty good about now or at least it was when I crossed it on the way home......I mean would of crossed it if one was there

You couldn't have been hanging around Booger Hollow Trail by chance?
No but without my handy dandy "Not Snot Plugs" (hey I like that....I wonder if I could at least patent the product name if nothing else) one could have traced my entire trip by the trail of frozen droplets on the roadway . No seriously driller, for some reason you were the one I was really worried about Brucing me today. You going to the Tour de Dragon this year ?
Not sure about Easter Weekend, Marc.
Actually,I was riding the other direction to Cowpens today, but you know how it is with cards.....sometimes you have to call to force the others to show their hand.
I grew up in N. Wilkesboro, too. Small world. Born in the same hospital.
Anyone besides wesc figured this one out yet?
But I aint going after it this week......it's just too close to the city.
The old man took me there once, I'm sorry...NCHB took me there one time. I remember the "river" (the river one should not speak of).
I'm going to leave this to the HillBilly. Don't want to get chewed out again tonight. Happy hunting.
Pretty sure I know where it is, 99%. Too much dirt up thataways for my fat pig of a street bike. The N. Ga or Ga tag was not too far south of there not too long ago.
I figured out by talking to people from Wilkes, and people not from Wilkes that it isn't such a small world. It's just that people from Wilkes are everywhere. I think it's because as soon as people graduate/dropout from high school they get the heck out of dodge.
The strangest small world incident I've had is running into one of my professors from Appalachain late at night, while on my honeymoon in Germany. My wife can't even bump into someone she knows when we go back to her home town.
Pretty sure I know where it is but can't go get it at the moment. I haven't ridden down that way before so it might be a good excuse tag or not.
Ain't much gets by the ole Banjo. Another good clue within his words.....The river crossing we keep referring to is a way to this tag VIA an alternate and a bit more spiced up route. This more rugged route is not on a state or federally maintained road but loads of fun. The primary route is over "Cadillac Gravel" and government maintained. The roadway pictured with my bike is representative of the entire 3-4 mile portion that is gravel.
Here's a picture of a really neat river crossing during the rough route to the tag.
Hey Mike......Long time no ride with ya.......Hows the 950 doing............Mark
Somebody (Ron) better get the tag out of the hills before Monday or it looks like it may get snowed in!
Don't be a girly man
