If I told you that there were two bridges leading to the restaurant would that give you New Hope?

If I knew the name of the bridges and/or roads running across them, yes.

I have no clue where that is.

When I posted this I thought it would be an easy catch for someone. Its on a pretty well known route--or so I thought.

Anyway tomorrow is suppose to be a pretty nice day for riding. I will post an all paved route later today or tomorrow that will take you right by the tag--not that I can promise that anyone in this crowd that drive by it will see it

But sorry Ft. Worth, the Plano crowd has a decided advantage on you. If you want, I will pm you the route to give you a running headstart! Heck, why not start over here now!

And if publishing the route doesn't work, then I guess I will lead a ride, and I will have us stop to eat at a catfish restaurant that is along the way. It will be a red building. At the end of a second bridge. I am sure it will be a nice photo op for someone. Maybe take a picture and post up. After which we may finally all be on the road to New Hope.

I think you're sandbagging us. He gave us a clue that made it an easy find. I have a 9AM meeting tomorrow that is liable to go to noon. As soon as it's over I'm going to head for the tag.

Close by...

I finally have a "Tag" that is close by and I don't have time to get on my bike and get it. Oh well, maybe next time.

Well enough of you guys have it that hopefully I am not spoiling anything by giving you a route to make the grab a little more fun. For those of you who live near US75, it makes a nice route when you have just a few hours to spare:

Small Loop


US75 to Bethany Drive.
East on Bethany Drive (changes name several times).
Turn Left at Light/Gas Station onto FM3286
Past second bridge turn Left onto FM546
After FM546 turns West away from Collin County Airport turn N onto Airport Blvd.
US380 turn left to return to US75


Large Loop


US380 turn right (East)
Left (North) onto FM1827 through New Hope
Follow FM1827 all the way to FM545
West on FM545
Turn South onto FM2933 back to New Hope Road (FM1827)
South to US380
Right (West) to US75 or South down Airport Blvd.

D'oh! Same thing happened to me with the Lost Antiques. Your photos are much nicer

This next one probably isn't googlable. However, there is a spillway 500y behind here where we used to hang out as teenagers. Pretty normal, except that you can apparently get drunk and ramp jet skis over it if the water is high enough. Careful though, it's only six inches deep on the landing.

Non googleable tag, means I have to go find a psychic or witch to help me find this place with my minds eye... Or you could give us a hint?
