I haven't logged into ADV in almost a year but the 2 wheel itch is returning so I pulled up the page today to see what was going on with the Cat Herders and I find you talking about me.

Yeah it was dark in that bridge, especially with sunglasses on. And the problem was that I didn't know there was raised tracks. I entered the bridge in the middle and at some point thought I'd move over a bit. I hit that ledge and finished as you said above.

That was the begining of the end for that bike 'cause we hit that deer the following weekend and totaled it.

Good times.

Been doing alot of 4 wheel exploring and traveling lately but the new Vsrtoms are mighty sexy. I might get the chance to chase some tags and ride all the way across that bridge some day soon.

Glad to see you guys are still riding and keeping the game alive.

What Mike said!
Mathew, I hope you and the misses are doing well and hope to see a grab from you in the near future.

Where have you been exploring?

Yeah I hope to be riding again soon and I know where the tag is at; I've stopped at that station many times on my way to the tower.

I spent much of last year working in Israel and briefly in El Salvador.
It was time for a vacation so we took three months off to explore Mexico and beyond.
Much of the first month was spent getting to and particpating in the Maya Rally which was a 10 day "race" that zig zaged it's way thru Mexico, ultimately finishing just a few miles north of the Mexico/Belize border. The following two months we spent exploring Belize, Guatemala, another pass north thru Mexico, CA, Oregon, NV, AZ and several other states.

We covered about 15000 miles in 12 weeks.

We made it back to VA a few weeks ago and I'm already starting to dream about the next big trip.
Alcan 5000 in 2014?

RTE tag

Grab, Fort Valley Country Store, Fort Valley rd., Rt. 678, Fort Valley. I drug Old Man River along to grab the tag. Ah, just like old times.





New tag,

We'll have to wait to see where as I gave Rudy to Beastrider to set.

The hand off...




Good to see you today Scott! I'm glad you could make it to the RTE. Hope to see you again real soon.

Don't sweat it. Sorry it's turning into a hassle.

Tag

New tag.....have not been in the tagging game for a bit so this may be a repeat.


Here is the duck between that rock and the tree.....



Now the duck is covered up with a rock and some leaves....



It's behind that rock in front of the tree in the middle of the pic....



You can see the tree with the rock just in front of the bike to the right side of the road.....



You know you are getting close when you see these 3 posts on the road...



I hate it when someone leaves garbage on these roads ....like this old antifreeze jug just before the hiding place....





The tag spot is a few tenths of a mile up a 2 word road.

In 1965, Ruth Fertel purchased this New Orleans restaurant for just $18,000.The name of this restaurant is a homophone for the first syllable of the first word of this two word road. The second syllable is the opposite of what Ruth is.

The second word is also the second word of the town where Ichabod Crane went to track down a headless Hessian mercenary.

Good seeing you folks today...have fun
