Whats this Rockton run? If your up this way, you should give me a shout!

Mine was super easy, I wanted someone to snag it quick and keep it moving. I'm suprised nobody has gotten DFC's yet.

I live (sometimes) in Rockton, IL.. I like the dead fur store in Rockton, WI..

One of these days I'm gonna toss Rockton, IA into the mix, too..

I also need to get to Gina's for some square pie..

I'm pretty sure we're headed up that way on the weekend after Labor Day. Any suggestions on a campground would be appreciated!! 3-4 KLRs, tents, and maybe some beers after dark..

Cool. The son of the guy that owns the Fur store in Rockton has a sweet DRZ400, and showed me some new gravel roads that we used on this years gravel ride. I gotta check that place out..need a seat cover for the Wee strom.

As far as camping is concerned, alot of the good places got damage from the flood so I really don't know what to recomend. I think Wildcat Mountain would be a pretty good place to camp though, and they didn't get any damage.

where is Gina's?

Gina's is in Wilton.
Gina's pies are square..

Wild Things made me a FANTASTIC muskrat kosack hat last summer.. I wore it ice fishing all winter and it's without a doubt one of the nicest articles of clothing I've ever owned. Custom made exactly as I wanted, in less than an hour, for $50.

I try to avoid State Parks. I'll do some investigation this week.

OK, now we are getting somewhere, this should be easy for some of you Chicago guys to head up and tag. Hell I was thinking about even doing this. I still might if no one gets it soon.

500 miles that weekend. I still get a stupid grin on my face every time the front wheel chirps as it settles back on the tarmac



Does anyone need a Hint for mine?

Nope, just waiting for a little more time off, or for it get substantially more southwesterly.

Got it!! Sorry Ben I couldn't stick around for the bonus points.. Had places to go and people to see. Great day for a ride!! It's been close to 20 years since I've had the bike down that way.




I'm going to pass my turn on to the first person to post a pic.. Enjoy!!

___ash ___er

It looks like there are 2 toll bridges in southern IN. across the ___ash ___er. I'll be heading to Potosi, MO this weekend, if southern IN. was on the way, I'd tag them!

N-- Har---- Bridge

Al, the State closed this bridge about a week ago. Structural cracks in the piers. May not be open for years, if ever! Was planning on tagging it on my way to Potosi this evening. May get there on return trip Sunday.
