    I was hoping Rev was gonna drop that NC tag on the way to Gatesville. Looks like he's taking it to the hills.

    The dog is in the sidecar. Time to go get lost.

    .. thanks for indulging me guys .. I know I've had the tag all day .. I had wanted to make a run at grabbing all four tags when I was on vacation for my 50th B-day ... wasn't able to do that due to a family emergency ..

    .. when Jarhead dropped the two tags so close and I had today off it just seemed to be begging to be done ..

    .. y'all can have your choice ..

    1: I can punt the tag further east (I found a very kewl site today with some history) ..

    2: I can drop it with the other two tags in the morning .. I ran out of daylight and couldn't make the drop I had/have in mind this evening ..

    .. I'll check back in at first light before I go to a drop site ..

    .. a change in my plans after talking to the wife and showing her some pictures from today's ride .. I found this while on my way to the ABC Tag .. it got me to thinking about a similar place in my home town, unfortunately the one in my home town is not going to share the same fate as this place .. someone is pumping some serious dollars into saving this old site ..

    The Tag Shot:
    [​IMG]

    .. in it's prime it looked like this ..
    [​IMG]

    .. some clues ..

    For the City Name .. hmm ... if I were a gamer playing a game it would be "on" .. as in "Game On" .. so if I were a welder it would be "___________________"

    .. it sits next to this tunnel that goes under the road ..
    [​IMG]

    .. which is filled with some artwork by and artist named Napoleon Hill ..
    [​IMG]

    .. and for a spoiler .. if you look at the old picture you can see the RIVER where there are some nearby FALLS and today there is now located a PARK ..
    .. it's located at (insert City Name) Landing .. you know .. as in a landing for a boat .. or a bunch of boats .. in fact the place was packed when I was there ..





    .. I was thinking about this site more and more on my way home tonight .. especially tonight as I was passing the old Mill we are losing in our town .. there is a bunch of history we are losing here in our state .. nice to see this bit being saved for the future ..

    Neat Tag Reverend! Quality! Looking at the current Google satellite, I can see the footings of some of the other buildings are still there and then compare to your old aerial photo to see what it actually was...well....neat! Looks like the river has changed some too.

    Cool new tag Bill, I knew the building on site. I have chased all sorts of fish and game near there.

    Congrats on the epic tagging today. :clap

    .. there's another awesome tag near there .. maybe even a little more "jaw dropping" when you first see it .. has to do with a certain railway .. or the remains of it ..

    .. yep ... that's a chunk of it .. just a tad west of that is a trestle system that must be at least 40-50 ft off the ground running for maybe a 1/2 mile or so (could be more, but it was tough to tell and still stay on the road .. lol .. ) into the town where the current tag is ..

    .. coming east on 158 you get a pretty good view of it .. going back west you go under a section of it .. I was pretty surprised how much is still standing ..

    .. you know .. I wondered about that when I was snapping my shots .. there's not much chance you could have just ridden past it without taking some file photos .. lol ..

    ... did you get the trestles too??
