I think I'm headed back to the relative safety of the pavement where I know what I'm doing.

Pics were taken after...once I realized I was gonna be there for a bit. My wrist was precluding any hero moves as soon as I rolled over.

Tag!



Bummer you didn't get it ChuckRacer, that road was a b*tch for sure! We made sure that we stopped and had a moment of silence at your impact point.

Next...

This should provide some fun for someone looking to go for a nice long ride off-road...



Closeup of the sign on the tree...



Your first clue...

We passed this to get to the location of the tag.



Heading out for the day, I have coordinates and can provide even more detailed clues as needed later this evening.

Hiya GWH, I think we met at the Americade, up at the RBR. I was looking at your Happy Trails setup in the parking lot and we talked for a bit. Good to see you here.

Chuck should be able to PUSH his bike for the pickup of this one. Even with one hand. OK, maybe it would be a long push, even from his place.

Dirt scares me now. You should see me walking across my lawn when I realize what's under the grass... Picture a dog w/ duct tape on his pads!!
I wouldn't drive my car to that tag. I'd probably go on my face as soon as I open the door!


BTW, there's nothing broken in my wrist. I rode a couple hundred today, and it's basically fine. A little sore but no swelling.

This is the sign that is directly on the Number Four Road.



There is a parking lot directly to the right of where I took this picture. At the back of that lot is the McCarthy Road sign.

Firing up the GPS now to get the coords.

Direct link to Google maps. Green arrow marks the spot. Not sure how far after this point the gate is as we didn't ride past this location. It appeared that the trail went on for some distance.

Smith Road and McCarthy Road both dead-end right where Google says they do. Smith is a clean two track all the way to the gate - no big deal. McCarthy gets a little interesting before it ends at a gate.

In the winter Smith Road is a snowmobile trail and does go to Brantingham, but in the summer it's gated. You might be able to get around the gates, but I don't know whose land you'll be on or how thrilled they will be to see you come out of the woods into their backyard.
