    Beautiful riding day indeed. A perfect day for goodwill hunting down on the old plantation.

    Good job Gimpy and mystery rider.

    Not just any building. This was the once proud Farmers and Merchants Bank in downtown Eastover. Daniel Huger II founded Goodwill Plantation in 1760 and this area became a prosperous agricultural economy. I like the name Goodwill Plantation, but I wonder how much goodwill the slaves felt.

    Tag! This can be found on the other side of the swamp. Bring some shorts, water, and hiking boots. This park is great. My getaway from the world.

    Paddy, its crazy how things change in the time. I hope time machines are created and we can walk around the past as a ghost. Just to watch. The mystery rider is A1C Nguyen. He is a semi new rider. He's learning and I like having him out. Haven't got him on the forum yet.

    Cheers

    Poinsett State Park.

    Take Hwy. 261 south from the 378 about ten miles and turn right at the sign for the park. This location is about 2 miles down an asphalt road. The park, located in the great Wateree drainage is very peaceful and a nice place for kids and picnicing.

    New tag up soon.

    Go to the SW corner of Rosewood Drive and Assembly, right in front of the State Fair Grounds sign and turn around. Look for the water tower, but be careful. Your eyes may deceive you. Happy hunting.

    Great Tag!

    I've thought about tagging this same water tower. For some reason I'm obsessed with them (at least this style, not the boring round ones). I'd love to try to get a pic in front of all the ones in SC one day. Might be something I start remembering to do. Kind of like getting those silly smashed penny's at tourist places. :clap

    Good tag. I'm trying to head up to Enoree OHV today, but sounds like it is still closed. If not, may have to go tagging!

    Is it weird that I would love to turn one into a living space inside? Still working on where the bikes will go. :evil

    Whenever I am able to make a dinner again (weekends are so tough for me), maybe we can compare! Mine's not that great, I've missed a lot of good ones not thinking about it.

    Hey Dirty South Jacket. Your new water tower home is all fixed up and ready for you to move in. Take a look.

    After realizing ricepady altered the photo and i wasn't looking for a tower with a brown square and a factory in the background with a tall smokestack i figured it out. The battery on my bike waa dead and i didnt want to pop start it so i parked to buy a sandwich. Pic ia the right spot just not lined up the same since i had to push my bike into view. Out onto the highway to get a charge going.

    :clap :clap :clap Good job scbison! You were fooled by that first water tower just as I figured, but good on ya for going all the way to find the right one - and with a dead battery to boot. It's guys like you that make this game worth while.

    The door and chimney are a photoshop job I did to poke fun at dirtysouthjacket. :D

    Keep on taggin'
