The Concours will likely outlast me. Original rear brakes replaced yesterday with ~45K on them...
my feelings exactly...
You can probably find one or two in eastern TN, typically on sunny days.
Luis should have his new, temporary home within a couple hours...
Approximately 145 miles SSW of the previous tag site via slab.
New tag. Continuing the Civil War theme
Goldsborough Bridge Battlefield
a little south of Goldsboro, NC
Satellite view showing location of trail at the top right of the area. Parking area is at the top left:
Walk down this trail - it was 24 paces for me from this bridge:
You'll see this tree on the left about 10-15 feet off the trail with the dead tree in front of it:
Just behind it, you'll see this tree with the sapling next to it:
I jammed a dead branch in the ground to mark its location:
I just kicked some leaves away and recovered it here:
More pics of the area:
nice.... I have the "big book" on battlefields.. and also have been there when I was doing the "North/South, Generals ride" planning many years ago for COG.... 4 thumbs up...
Six week bump.
Dang. Tried to make this an easy one....
The history of the tag makes it interesting but the area itself I find pretty boring. That thing needs to be in the mountains where it's 10-20* cooler this time of year. Maybe we'll get lucky and someone headed to the beach next week will move it.
Dang! Back in NC? I thought this would be up in Alaska by now....
You're three hours one way if you avoid slab, so I get that. There are a metric shitload of folks within an hour though. The ride up I-85 and I-95 to get the previous one wasn't my favorite ride of the year... But it was a hooky day from work, so there's that.
Here.... Do this before your Alaska trip:
Yeah, just have to finish putting the bike back together.
Hot and sweaty grab.
Was a long day. 550+ miles for 2 tags. Just got home.
The weather was about the same when I dropped it. I did walk the entire perimeter counter clockwise looking for a place to hide the thing in full gear...
Made two laps and gave up. Left to get the eastern tag and came back for another try. Was about to call it the day when I found the bridge. It was covered with sand and not visible. It is now uncovered. It was uncovered and about a foot from the tree. Luis said that the jets keep him awake was trying to escape.
We took the day off today for some R&R. I promised him we would find him a new home this weekend. You know what happens when someone places one around the BRP. "POOF , There Gone"
Dude, sorry. I tried to make it as easy as I could to walk right to it. Glad you were able to find it.
I think the rain washed the sand over the bridge. The search makes the find sweeter.
Glad it was uncovered and easy to spot once you got there. I figured it was off the trail just enough so that if it did become uncovered, it wouldn't be visible to a casual hiker.
Well after a late start and some rain, Luis said that he liked the area and wouldn't mind a little quiet time at his location. The road in is paved except the last short section which is packed gravel. Good for all types of bikes.
Find this broken tree behind the sign. Luis is behind it. Have fun and be safe.
