    I thought I had the road figured out, but a quick look at Google maps doesn't show it crossing any creeks.

    How about another clue for us folks coming from a long way off. Is this one more than 35 miles from Dawsonville? :rofl

    OK. Here are two more clues....:

    clue # 3 The road/bridge is in the Suches area. One end of the road starts as pavement; the other end starts as dirt (is that one or three clues?) :lol3

    clue # 4 The song lyrics "Hungry, like a _____" should help

    Good luck!

    Your DS tag looks like it is off to a good start. Up here in the Shenandoah Valley of VA, we too are playing a DS game but dirt/gravel only.

    We have borrowed the idea of a Tag Map from other various Tag threads. This is especially helpful later in the game to see which areas are still "open".

    It is easy and free as long as you have a Google account. PM me if you need any help getting one made. Only one person can edit it though.

    Hey SR,
    Do you think that you could make it any easier? :rofl

    Maybe if you posted a link to a google map...:scratch

    If that was directed at me, active tags don't show up on the Google map, only the ones that have been found :moon.

    If not, :wave

    Looks good. To incorporate the picture for each tag, when editing, switch to rich text then click the image symbol on the toolbar and paste the image(tag) http location into the hyperlink.

    Looks like you guys aren't getting any work done around the office either:evil

    And I'm still not 100% sure where SR's tag is?? :dunno
    I think I know the bridge, but don't know about the sign. I'm always coming from the other direction.

    If it's the bridge I think you're thinking about, I think that you may be thinking of the wrong bridge. I think.

    I watched a video of bikes going down that road on YouTube, and that bridge has a guard rail.

    The bridge in the tag is a much lower traffic bridge.

    I have no idea where it is either, and I have tomorrow off. How likely do you think it would be that I would just find this bridge by wandering around? :D

    That was a PITA to find. That road doesn't exist on Google Maps or on my atlas.

    I got the Sunrise Store from the first set of clues, and I kept looking for a road that matches the rest of the clues. I was hesitant to ride 250 miles without having a pretty good idea where it was. You last clues almost gave it away, so I figured it was worth riding around looking.

    As it was, it still took me a couple hours of riding around. I even stopped at the store, and didn't see the road because there was a truck parked there.

    The next one will follow in the tradition of bridges. I'll go get it tomorrow.
