Located between Mars and Jupiter, one in this main belt was discovered at Kitt Peak in 1997. This Road shares its first name with # 13668. The Roads second name is a small limb.

Cool2 Grab - Tanner Branch Road south of Marshall



RD meets Cody again and informed me that they had to stop meeting this way. RD said he needed some space..... seems the relationship has run a foul..... they can't even look at each other.....


New tag in a couple....

Way to swing back into the game!
You know, a few weeks ago before Beast Rider got back into the game I was wondering if this game would reach 100 tags in the first year. Now I'm wondering if it will make it by the end of the month.
You guys have been keeping me busy updating the tag map.

Can't wait for the new tags. Gotta go! Someone go add another star to the NOVA game. Just noticed it is only a four star game. Whats up with that?

New Tag!

RD at the base of the tree ....


And covered up by a rock taken from the small rock wall in front of the tree ....


RD is at the base of the tree with all the vines, the one that is directly behind my fuel tank ....


Shot of the road heading off to the North ....


And the South ....


Clues:
Rd is on the right side of the road about 9/10 of a mile coming in from the South. The bike in the picture is headed to the South. The road shares its name with something that will provide extra cushion and comfort to someone sleeping. Some people think it must be like sleeping on a cloud.

The name of this Road has 2 words.

The first word is the same as the last name of the satirist who wrote "I have been assured by a very knowing American in London, that a young healthy child is a most delicious, nourishing, and wholesome food, whether stewed, roasted, baked or boiled".

The second word means sandbars.

yeah, I've been a dormant... cager in the icy slicks these past few weeks... you all have to point me at the heated gear thread (and no, I don't have a beast with a lot of extra amps for lots, so just looking for the essentials)... I've road in sub freezing, but then my senses got to me... I need more than 7 layers... looking forward to actually getting into the game when the temps rise a bit!

A Gerbing vest with the new micro wire is a good start. I would get the dual heat control right away. Pay more now and later you won't have to buy a new controller when you add-on or up grade.
