We got to the end of Brooks ln., where an old road heads up into the State forest and a group of houses. As we are turning around a guy in a small pickup pulls up. He said we were on private property and the road was posted(Brooks Ln.). I apologized and started back. When we got back to Cedar Creek Rd. I noticed the "No Trespassing" signs...on the left side of the road as you head in.
Maybe that's why I didn't see them.
Yeah... the property was donated to the state and is landlocked. They supposedly do horticulture type studies up there. No public access at all. :(

I'll post up a new tag later tonight or in the morning. Was going to make a run right away but the low gas light on the bike was on and where I had in mind was going to be far from any gas stations. Need to try to leave for work a bit early and get it placed on the way.
Post early. I have the day off!

Ok, Tag! Early enough? :)

I took a secondary road detour and dropped the duck back off into the wild on the way home from work a bit ago. 14 deer, 2 skunks, 1 raccoon, and 1 field mouse later the duck is back in play.

The duck hiding in some rocks to avoid the coyotes.


...and covered up.


Backing off a bit - The rocks in the pics above are directly above the windscreen and mirror in this shot.


The gravel portion of the path to the prize is just a short 1/4 mile off the asphalt and big bike friendly. This shot is where one takes the turn off the asphalt.


The new tag location is southwest of the previous grab location just off a hard surface road whose 3 digit number adds up to 6. The gravel path the duck is on also runs SW and parallels Cove Run... but it only appears on Google Maps for those who take a birds eye view.

I'll try to get more distance between tags next time around.

I was thinking of tagging that spot.

Ha, the first pic did it for me.

Looks like you had a nice ride today. Are you home now? I'll try to stop by here in a little while.

Hmmm... Think I'm going to have to pass on making a grab today.

Wish I had some tires with Kold Kutters installed! :)

I almost went for on my way home from work a bit ago. The gravel road up the mountain to my house finally cleared enough today to get me motivated to ride to work since the forecast was to remain above freezing so I didn't have to worry about coming home and finding it frozen back over tonight. I swear the breeze actually feels WARM out there right now!
