Find this bridge, its strong enough for a jeep

Don't go past the bridge unless you want I got stuck. The grass was taller than me

The pineapple is next to this post, in the red circle. Behind the bike at 7ish

Where I came from, the way I suggest you enter and leave

So this place is a "park" or some more power lines along a railroad track you decide

There are two ways in, sorta, good luck have fun. And do I get extra points for being extra Muddy?

Ok so my clues suck. Start here if you wanna play in some mud 40.694432,-74.608144. However I came from the southwest. Still muddy but no 6ft tall grass or swamp to wade thru. This is a dirt game right? Mud is dirt?

Neat location. Would suggest you post the GPS coordinated for the pinapple location, since it's going to be pretty hard to find that metal stake in the tall grass.

Walter B., Rodknee from NY, and I tried to get to the duck with our big Duelies. Rodknee on a KTM Adventure, Walter and I were on our 950 KTM SEs. We got as far as just past the 1st water/mud/creek crossing and up the hill a little, but the tall grass made it impossible to see the ruts, mud, rocks, etc.

Will, I think you have to go back and retrieve the duck. Don't think anyone can get it unless they are on a baby single cylinder dirt bike. And are crazy!

I think you have to place it in a more accessible and legal location.

I'd leave it-- there are a number of people with small bikes who could get it. I also think a shortcut might exist from the Lake Road extension, and it might be easier to get it from Whitenack Road, following the railbed.

Surely we have some heroes following the thread

Yeah don't go from whitenack you'll have to cross the swamp where I got stuck. I'll give it a few days. If its still there after I put my klx back together, I'll move it somewhere less awesome

it can be done on big bike, but don't have a huge touring screen and 3 hard bags on your bike...

it was fun scouting for the tag though, i will get it next time and drag that f'er way up north

You definitely should move it. There has never been such an inaccessible location before. Single track is one thing. NO TRACK is another! It is not hard to bury the tag in the woods so no one can get it. The trick is to place it where people can have fun riding to the mascot. This tag is not fun. To say nothing of the tick-infested shoulder high grass.

Walter does not make the decisions in this game…. And he was the one who bailed. I was willing to continue up the hill. But not by myself. It's one thing to get stuck in mud with a 250 lb. plated Enduro bike. It's another to try by yourself to haul a 450 lb. dual sport up a mud hill.

I didn't make a decision- I made a suggestion. Here's another one- stop whining.

And I just knew it would be my or Chris' fault you didn't go for it

Sorry didn't mean to make the tag hard to get. There was a jeep trail all the way to the bridge. Maybe the grass grew higher? I only meant to add some "dirt" to the game. My DR is no enduro its certainly not 250lbs either, more like 400. I'll move the pineapple tomorrow after work.

Thanks! It is a cool location, but probably limited to a small bike or a young, talented rider! So, if anyone wants to prove me wrong, go get the ADV Pineapple before Will gets there tomorrow after work. I don't have a small dirt bike anymore, and I'm certainly not young or talented!

And Walter, most of the whining was on the Jeep trail this afternoon!

p.s., Waldo, did you check yourself for ticks?
