I used to walk on that road most days when I lived across the street
My ex-950SE lives VERY close to there.

My in-laws used to live on Reas Ford Ln., there's another ADV'er there also. Slacker doesn't post much any more though. (Note cord to heated vest in above pic - chilly out). Thanks for the treats tuffstuff, I'll bet they're even better when they're not nearly frozen!

Tag:



Mouse is behind and at the base of the corner post on right, closest to the bike.
Since it's cold out I'll make this easy: It's West of Doylesville on Rt. 673.
'Twas a balmy 36 when I got home, had to break out the winter gloves after I placed the tag.

Out of town for the good weather unfortunately. Too bad too, it's in my neighborhood...

New tag:

If a certain singing troubadour had a mountain with a road on it, it would probably be named the same as this road. And that would be sweet baby!

I went pretty far up this road. Very rough, it even knocked me down against an embankment on the descent. No harm done.

I stopped here, and considered leaving the tag here:



But ultimately went back down to where the road wasn't so rough, just loose gravel.


The tag is at the base of the address sign behind my bike.



Covered by just leaves.



Great day for riding, even broke out the fingerless gloves, and kept them on the whole time!

Great weather for tag grabbing, glad you were able to get out.
That sign seems familiar but I can't place it - guess I'll have to do some sleuthing.

Need More Clues?

Wow, a week without so much as a mention, still sleuthing?

Need more clues or just warmer weather?

Well, how about both?

Today's weather is perfect for tagging, and here's another clue: http://rapidanwma.org/

Happy Saturday.

This clue helps. I was way off where I thought it might be.

Anybody figure out the singing troubadour?

He's seen fire
He's seen rain

If he had a road named after his mountain, this would be it.

Sweet Baby kind of narrows it down but I don't see anything that identifies that road name.
Besides, I don't have a RWM pass, fishing or hunting license and it's illegal to enter the WMA without one of the above.
