The sign is good! All hail the sign!

OK, I'll be the first to ask the ignorant question: Where is it?

GPS coords, please.

What fun would that be. One has to find "the sign" in order to be worthy. :)

I'm not ashamed, I'll second that. Seen dozens of photos, still not exactly sure where it is. Somewhere in the northwest though, that I know.

What's the deal on the red No Weasels sign?
I've seen several of those in the strangest places.

Wauw,

that's a great sign.

I never got above 35 km's (about 22 miles) which I found in Spain during an allroad trip.

My first encounter on a motorcycle with the sign ocurred in the summer of 2002 when my wife and I rode it while at a rally in a nearby town. Here's the picture of the sign (I wasn't cool enough to put the motorcycle in the picture).



Since then about every year (sometimes multiple times per year) I've passed by it.

Over Labor Day, 2006, a friend and I did a trip that put the sign in our crosshairs.





This year, I've seen it without taking a picture of it. While the sign may be passe, the road is definately not.
