Educational endeavors require me to be down in this part of the state today. Will I ride? Stay tuned to see if I wuss out on 4 to 6 hours of December riding... so far the weather looks cooperative. Pnoman Ill try to grab that marker as an early Christmas present if I end up riding today.

And you KNOW it's not been an adventure till Geomatrician is laying on his side (in his defense it was pretty gnarly for the pigs and I probably joined him on the ground shortly after this)

I considered using the dam as my tag but I can't remember if this spot has been tagged before and it's in the same county as the tag I grabbed so if ya'll bear with me I'll try to place another by the end of the week up here in pleasants/tyler/ritchie/dodridge area.

Set the tag on your roof, and see how many ADV people come by to "help".

Thinkin that will slow the game down even more! Have to wrk a 12hr shift today so ill place the tag tomorrow rain or shine. Plan on coming west to get it! It will be on the western border of the state found off of a single digit road that follows the ohio river. The location will be in an area that was surveyed by our first US president and named for the long reaching straight on the Ohio river that borders this small community.
