I know where that is!
If you happen to stop near the river to take off a layer and your KLR won't start - there's a nice farmer close by who will lend you a deep well 8mm to get the sidecovers off (nothing like that in the toolkit) so that you can get to your seat bolts to get to the loose battery terminals under the seat. Just sayin'. Pulling on the + battery wire to the starter relay will make the gauges work enough so you know what the problem is but won't quite make enough contact to start the bike (though it will run just fine...). Trying to McGyver a deep well tool out of a beer can with a pair of pliers doesn't work worth a damn.
You'll have to figure out how to deal with the stinky deer carcass you're parked next to on your own though.

^^^ And now I know where it is too... and I have the tools to avoid this dilemma.

It is safe to assume that mtnflow.

Tag Grab









The tag is right after a slab located in a quarry off of 257 in briery branch. Shouldn't be too hard to find with there only being one quarry on 257.

Welcome, Justin is it? Not sure I get where the tag is positioned. Doesn't quite look like it, but would it be at the base of the no camping sign behind your bike? Please elaborate!

Yep that's me and sorry about that I did put it at the base of the no camping sign. Figured I would put it close to my house for my first tag.

Grab on Hone Quarry Campground road off of the road from Briery Branch and Slab to Reddish Knob. I followed the road on to it's end...3-4 rocky and mostly dry stream crossings. Nice spots to camp.


I figured that the dingus was bored stiff after waiting for so long to be grabbed so we decided to make it a long ride.
We crossed the Valley and headed up the Valley, south for the uninitiated. This is what it looked like. Mighty pretty!



Tag at a Gap named for early settlers from the Emerald Isle on ____ Creek Road named for a plant whose latin name is urtica dioica. The three digits of the road number add up to 9.



The dingus is under a bit of tree bark at the base of the large tree to the right of the roadway and the bike.

Grab. Nettle Creek Rd., about MP 37 on the BRP.


Tag: About 30 miles north of the grab, below and adjacent to the BRP on a road whose # adds to 7. This road connects to the BRP in a couple of places through about a 20 foot connection. Tag is just south of the most southerly connection EXACTLY where the road changes from pavement to gravel, under the white plywood piece.

Wow! And based on recent activity on this thread I had thought I would have to schedule moving it myself in 3 months. Cool!

Grab: Howardsville TPK, aka 610, just off the BRP where it turns from paved to dirt.




Tag is closer to Greenwood, actually where Greenwood Station Rd makes a tight hairpin turn. Not a dirt road, but a fun little road through Newtown. Take it easy not to hit anyone, there are people walking along here often.

Dingus is at the base of the fence post beside my bike, just behind the road sign.










Nice day for it!

I rode by there twice yesterday. Was that you on the porch at Wyant's Store in Whitehall about 2PM?
