Been curious where a dirt road went, turns out not really anywhere but I got a scenic picture out of it. If you're needing some nutmeg for holiday recipes, it will be nearby.

I thought I knew where it was. The clue matched up but I can't find the site on Google. I still believe it's there but I may have to ride through there to find out for sure.

I thought I knew where it was, too, but with no streetview in area, guess I'll have to ride out and check... Fences and pond placement don't line up with pic if it is where I thought...

This is the first time I've heard of a school having a cemetery. Usually, at least in the South, it is a church or town. The school (and cemetery) is named after an "African-American" woman born in 1874, and ended up attending Fisk University in Nashville, TN. She taught in several county schools in the area before becoming principle of the grade school in this area. I'm not at liberty to give too many more clues, cause I don't want it to be too easy!

Those are the Heidenau K60's. I have liked them a lot.. These have about 6K miles, mostly road, and have plenty of tread left. I've been suprised at how well they stick on pavement. I can't give a thorough review for off-road, but I do like them better than the stock tires in gravel.

As for the tag, I havnen't had the time to figure out where it is, or go get it...

Does your rear have that solid rib down the middle? I've heard several people complain about that causing trouble on uneven surfaces or it following road imperfections. I went with full knobbies this time, but may try those next time.
