Close... Well, 500 plus.... I went to Bridgewater to shoot Uranus.... Took a slightly different ride back than this map shows, cow-pathed it back to the Coast.

Then dragged the Tag to Greenville the next day....

I took the wife for a ride to Kittery today and then took the long way around home. Was going to go into NH to place the tag but it was getting late.

Found this place on the way home...picked it solely for the look of the building. I guess its a general store now but it was not open.

Thanks for stopping by - that place is about 2 miles from my house! They make the best sammiches...

Just not sure when I'll have time to ride 100 miles so may have to sit this one out.

I knew I was in the heart of Mudhen and Photobiker country.

Dosen't PB live near the Old Mill sign you tagged?

If I knew where you were I would have stopped.

I feel like a nice evening ride later.

NNE Tag


I commuted this road for ten years before my company moved to NH. This has been many things, it was a Montisory (sp?) school last I knee. It is now "The Brixham General Store". They appear to open pretty early for the 'York' crowd too.

New tag this evening.

Stroms and "not Stroms".

New Tag. . .

Wow, it is getting cold out now. Normally I have all my gear in my right hand saddlebag. However, this summer I took all the winter stuff out (liner, balaclava, etc) to clean. In fact, I just found all of it sitting in the same place I left it 3 or 4 months ago, waiting to be cleaned ;-) I could have used a liner or a long shirt for the ride back.

I am posting without any hints right now, we will see how things go tomorrow. There were two other optional tags along this road.



This worked out well this evening as I was at 29,940 this morning and really wanted to get to 30k today. Mission Successful:
30K on the 2002
