    Idk if there are more hints or not, I could give you one. Seeing as how I know where it is through extensive internet research and some lucky phrasing and guesses.

    Evinrude, give this man a hint that you deem ok!

    I was thinking you might jump in and move a tag around.

    Augie and I left for this tag under cloudy sky's. Before we got out of Gaston county, the rain started. Rained the entire trip. So much for the weather forecast.
    Did you happen to see the Trail Camera hidden in the bush near where we were parked? SMILE, YOUR ON CANDIED CAMERA!!!!!:D

    I missed seeing the camera. The grounds and building stay kept up and aren't falling in. I dont know who pays for all of it. Old 18 is a great road to ride. Glad you missed some of the rain.

    [​IMG] you will find the bueatiful pavillion located on the site at the largest botanical garden in nc. It is private owned and maintaned with a grant from a wealthy textile mill owners estate. His former home and estate is part of the land he granted for the gardens.

    Too bad the XT is out of commission again, I broke a spoke and popped the rear tube while Sandrion and I were on the way to grab the upstate tag. The local dealership can't get me just one spoke, so I'm looking into other options.

    Placed looks like it was closed less than a week ago but has been closed for quite some time. Lots of golfers out in the rain.

    there is a motorcycle salvage shop in gastonia called gaston motorcycle, located on south new hope rd. he has a lot of used bike parts in stock for sale. he will likely have what you need. ask for andy or pee-wee. good guys to do business with.

    I know exactly where you're talking about, I've been there a few times for 3-wheeler parts (and an IT200 I was restoring). I completely forgot about them :fpalm

    I don't see how the address says Connellys Springs... Looks like Evinrude was right about the location when me and him talked about it the other day... darn misleading addresses..
