Grab - Freezeland Rd - Rt 638, 1st parking area

Rudy on the top bag ready to ride ....


New Tag

This may be the shortest distance from grab to tag in this games history, but the ride is worth it ....


A litlle closer ....


Here we are .... remember the tree with the no trespassing sign on it to the left of the gate .... Rudy is at the base ....


And the spot ....


Covered by a couple rocks ....


Out of the freezer and into the fire .... you'll go no further .... just 4.8 miles is where you'll find your prey. Street bikes beware .... it's gravel, slippery and a lot of fun!

I'll bring it back your way soon! To many nice mountain roads over that way to keep it away too long!

Duck on a rescue mission

OK!

Grab! End of Fire Trail Rd, off Freezeland Rd. 38 69' 61.3" -78 69' 63.3". Minutes and seconds are almost identical! Rudy on the top case....


Why haven't I ridden this road before? It doesn't go anywhere but I like it!

Google maps also calls it Appalachian trail...but shows the trail running along side the road just over the hill. The WMA maps on site and online show the Appalachian trail running with the road in this area.

http://www.dgif.virginia.gov/wmas/maps/thompson.pdf

THe grab was just past the "Orchard PA" parking lot

Just an FYI. To access WMA parking lots and lands requires a pernit as of Jan. 1st. If you run into a VADGIF ranger having a bad day you could conceivably get a ticket. Just saying...

Anyway, I told Rudy of Lucky, the Eastern Panhandle tag mascot's plight and that he was in need of rescue. He said "lets roll"...and roll we did.


The continuing rescue saga...


EDIT: Look at page 20, post 295 in the Eastern Panhandle WV tag thread...

New tag sometime this evening. I still haven't had dinner yet!

Laugh New tag ATR(after the rescue)

Here is Rudy sitting in this clump of roots by the end of that stick...


Now, covered up...


The tree over top of the seat is the one...


Clues...For one thing, Pay attention to the photos. There WILL be a test!
The Panhandle tag is not too far away, but not in this State. Out of bounds you know. You could conceivably make it a twofer...
http://www.advrider.com/forums/newre...e=1&p=17879936

The first word is the same as the second syllable of a phrase, or term, that was made famous by Karl Donitz and was to have a devastating impact on allied shipping during WWII. (what it was commonly referred to)
The second word is one of two extant subspecies of Equus Ferus.

Very nice, slightly squirrely dirt(mud) and gravel roads in the area! NOT street bike friendly...at least from the South and hopefully not much better(worse?) from the North.

Rt#'s=17

Happy Duck hunting!

Making easy clues is tough work!
