    I don't see a green with envy smiley or I'd use it.

    Be safe & have fun! That is one of my favorite places ever.

    Ok, I have one file pic from this 'midlands', so its the new tag

    Although this millpond is not in Edgefield County, it shares its name with a business there, where you could buy a Flex, Fusion or Focus.

    OK, so it's a Motorsports Complex and has a web site. Have at it. I'm sure there's no snow on the ground there now.

    Damn Rice, you only missed it by 5 min. Sounds like you shouldn't have snoozed that last time.

    Perhaps if you had one of these adventure bikes perhaps you would have gotten home a little sooner.

    Heh heh, that was a close one! I had no cell signal for my netbook at the tag location and rode to I-20 @ Hwy 1 to post it.

    Google would not cough up a mill pond on Satcher Pond Rd no matter how much fu I used on it. :lol3

    No one wants to get my tag :cry .

    In case someone needs another clue, in Google, if you put the two most important words from the sign (I repeated the same words in my text) in quotes and add SC, the tag appears as the first result. Like this:

    "word word" +SC

    It was great meeting PropellerHead and Catalyst on Sunday at the Long Cane ride. PropellerHead gets the Kalonji Adventure award for taking inappropriate equipment to out-of-the-way places. Well, his bike is not totally inappropriate, but could use some tweaking for single track.

    Laura, doubt you saw this posted this weekend, but he put this up in the lowcountry dinner thread from our ride this weekend. He deserves a little medal for this one:

    Hey Laura,
    I found your new tag, but don't know how soon I can get away. First chance I get, I'll go after it. :D

    PS. Sports bikes with street tires in the mud. What's wrong with young people these days?

    Palmetto Motorsports Complex. 1465 Hwy. 6. About 4 miles northwest of Swansea. I'll have a new tag up soon. Rice--

    Here is a new tag to play with.

    Clue: The people in this town can be excused for being somewhat confused as their town has not one but two names. Study hard and you may just solve this puzzle.

    Good luck and happy motorcycling. Rice-- :gerg

    :cry Boo Hoo. Nobody wants to go for my tag. Maybe I'll just go get it myself and start a new thread - The Ricepaddy Tag-O-Rama. But seriously folks. Somebody go get this old stale tag!!!! Rice

    The only town with two names that I've found with an admittedly quick and unthorough search is in Newberry County, so it would be out of bounds for this game.

    :dunnoMaybe another clue would help, but I don't have time to go get it today, anyway.

    Land, this tag is very much within the boundaries of the Midlands TOR. Go back a little ways and find the place where Laura bruced me at the pond. Find a single digit Hwy. nearby and follow it to a town with two names. It's not very far. If this doesn't do the trick, I have one more clue that will make it very easy to find.

    Go forth an tag! :D Rice--

    Perhaps if there was only one game in the state the tags wouldn't sit for so long...Two days is far from stale. or is old stale tag a clue?
