Here's Walter trying to bushwack around the mud puddle. He didn't make it...
Now you tell me :-)

New Tag

1. Start here



2. You will see this track running alongside a disused railway.



3. Follow this trail South for aprox 1 mile until you arrive here.



4. You will see a large fallen tree.



5. At the broken base of the tree the black duck is next to a large vertical splinter.

Thanks, Jezza. That's a nice little mile or two of semi-urban trail by the tracks. But as KL_ARRR will testify from when we were on Institute Road last Sunday, I hate those patches of deep, big gravel. At the depot just before the 'duck' end there was a guy washing trucks. He asked me over and said there was nothing further along, so I explained a little then he offered me a power-wash!

I went back along the route to the GPS co-ords, then continued North along the tracks until I suddenly found myself playing left-field in an organised baseball game in the park between the tracks and what looked like a municipal building. Rather than continue across and mow down the outfielders I stopped there and went back to the street; looked like there was more to explore.

New tag up later once I've finished the cooking.

New tag

Start here:


When the road forks go to the left, you will see this:


A little further and there's a dump and foundation on the left - the bike is facing the way I came:


At the front left corner of the foundation behind the bike is the remains of a TV:


The duck is under the front left corner of the TV. Sorry, none of the close-ups of the duck under the TV came out well, pilot error.

There's more fun to be had further down the road; hope you like your vegetables.

The duck will be dropped Saturday.


Nice road Jim (too bad they use it as a dump)- I took it to what I think was the end-- past the big puddle there was a crusty farmer doing some backhoe work and he didn't look all that pleased to see me, so I didn't hang around. Spent most of the next few hours riding around Orange County and Sussex before heading south/home.

Team drop...

Was a spectacular location that Walter got his team of dirt riders, about 125 miles from the Empire State Building, so still good. Here's the crowd watching him place the duck:
