I believe the lesser known dirt road cemetery phase has officially begun! There must.be hundreds of these in washtenaw county, little 3 grave, no-name burial sites. forgotten cemeteries.

Let the tagging begin!
Go to Google Maps, type in "cemetary washtenaw county, MI" and your targets will appear along with the outline of the county.

Lots of options....

It's Never Too Wet, Cold, Dark, And Slimey To Go Tagging!

This was just too easy. I go by this spot practically every day on my way home from work.



And in case anyone wants to know what the historical marker says:

Saline River

Here is the new tag. This is the Saline River.






This road heads south off of Mooreville Road west of Milan where it crosses the river.

Fail!

Well - I tried. I bundled up with all my electric gear and headed down to Milan an hour ago. As I passed Ann Arbor on US23 south, the snow really started to blow. My GPS said I was only 8 miles from the bridge, but my common-sense meter told me to head back home. Maybe next weekend.

A for effort.

This one is too far south for me (livingston cty) in the winter months. The Ural is stout and built for Siberian winters... but the same cant be said for me .... waiting for someone to tag it and bring it back north a little

curt1656,

thanks for joining. welcome

that picture of the downed lean-to or shed could be your next tag, but first you have to post up a picture of your bike in place of the last one.

so I think you could get semiJ's bridge tag on grass road. Just to make it easier, I think youll find it just north of Austin road by union cemetery.

so far we've kept the clues extremely clear and straightforward, because the point is to explore our precious dirt roads home county, not solve riddles

good luck and good tagging.

thanks for joining

Yep, nice and warm, couldn't in good conscience stay inside and let that tag last out the year.

Despite being above 40 degrees the dirt roads were still pretty solid slabs of ice, which keeps keeps things nice and interesting.

I've about had it!

This is, by far, the longest. i've gone without riding since I bought my GS. I am about sick of this weather. I'd love to knock off a tag!

Longtime no ride.

Three of us went to South Carolina for a dual sport ride three weeks ago, it took some of the edge off. We are all feeling the same pain.
