I had that tag in mind for a long time. That's kinda why I wanted that one at Arno Allisona the other day so bad. The NB Forrest monument is maybe a 10 minute ride from there. That ride out to the strawberry farm, then there was a nice one though. Still gave me a chance to hit Pulltight Hill on the way back. Always a highlight when in the area. BTW, all those grandmas at the strawberry farm gave me some crazy looks when I pulled up early on Saturday morning, snapped a pic and blasted out of there.

BTW , I love that V-Strom ADV. I had that engine in my SV, and it was torquey and buttery smooth. I bet that package in a more comfortable and practical bike is just about perfect.

Damn. Mrs. Rocket and I rode right through there twice yesterday on the way to and from Lynnville. It was a damn good burger at Sopa Pop Junction though!

And when you get to the end of the road, turn right and go straight into Lynnville.

Anyone ready for a border run or would you rather just have some obscure tag?

Oh yeah, love the area, came in from the store side. Beautiful red barn I wish I had stopped to take a picture of. I'll have to go back one day, also saw a neat little bridge that would have been worth a shot too.

I guess I'll stick with the obscure tag that's located around the current collection.



Beagle for a clue if you need one.

yep, just south of HH. It was just dumb luck that I found it. I saw on Google that it was south of HH, but I never bothered to get directions or an address. I didn't realize that I only had a general idea of where it was, but I was already on my way. I figured I would just explore some backroads, and if I found it great, and if not that would be OK too. I went right to it.

I spent the rest of the day lost. I just kept turning off on side roads. I had a great time.

Like the Breeze said, Coordinates are 35.56862 - 86.66357 you turn to go to the Trap & Skeet Range then turn left on Hopkins Bridge Rd, right before Clay Hill Methodist Church.
