Unless I'm totally mistaken, it was the Holmes Creek Bridge in Charlotte, VT. Pam & I looked at a place on Lake Road a couple years back.

Nice grab KP! I didn't think that tag was gonna last very long with this good weather. The new tag has been done before, but who cares, I actually know where it is without googleing.

Thanks. I couldn't think of anything else to take a picture of in the dark that I haven't taken already day or night.

I've watched loads of tags go by because I've been too busy to go get them.

KP-- Nice work getting the covered bridge in Charlotte!

What a beautiful day to be out on the bike today...and tomorrow supposed to be real nice as well.

I can see how this tagging business can get addictive QUICKLY.

Thank you, this is a lot of fun.

I see you are riding a very nice (is nice the right word for a balls-to-the-wall dual sport?) BMW bike.

I can, without any coaxing whatsoever, move it someplace more "interesting."

Do so at your own peril, cuz there are probably a score of inmates converging on that location right about now.

Nice one Monkeyboy, I knew it was going down today
Who's that with ya? I'm guessing Vt-Stromer?

I was on my way to get the tag or at least be in the central VT area for the new tag, and took a roundabout route. I was working my way south and west and found class 4 Bear notch Rd. in West Fairlee Center. In the first waterhole my exhaust tip was under water. I got stuck a few times and it was a blast until I just couldn't go any further. I really shouldn't be doing this shit alone. Luckily a guy on a 4 wheeler came along and helped me after an hour of me trying to get my motorcycle unstuck. The mud was like wheel bearing grease and I couldn't get any boot traction.

Yeah I should know better!
A local guy Terry Cook happened by on his atv and we pulled it out together. A few minutes later, VASA President Bruce Durkee came by on his atv to help but didn't need to get his Johnson Woolen Mills hunting gear all muddy. A couple of super nice guys!
