I live just outside of Charles Town.

That was just such a great tag! Maybe it was because it was raining but I felt like I was going straight down Deliverance Lane and was on a real adventure. I hated seeing all of the poverty but it's better then ignoring it exists I guess. As I understand it the railroad is no longer used? There was a lot of workers coming up and down the road. You can't see it in my picture but there was a truck working on the trestle.

There are some great roads between here and Charles Town.

That was a pretty good cruise today.

I actually had to deliver canoes to Rocky Gap State Park today for an adventure race this Saturday so I wasn't too far away. May have to deliver more in the next two days.

I've got a few things to say about the rail line but will wait till the "other" tag gets gotten. I will say this though, the rails have been gone for at least two decades.

Cool area to ride in. Combine this and some of Green Ridge State Forest and you could make a LONG day or weekend of it!

Another way to look at it is it's between a Fork and a Cross. Your doing good when you get close. There is a picture of the marker on google earth as a final clue. Let me know if you need more.



Bump tag photo back up.... i guess this rain eventually will be snow........ Nice tag Bracky....I always thought these old furnaces were neat.. and the charcoal burns in mountains that built to fire the furnaces, i am surprised there weren't more forest fires than they were. Was there any slag laying around? ....a lot of times they dump the slag on the roads near the furnace...

I didn't notice any slag but to be honest at this point in my adventure I didn't waste much time looking around. I had to be home before noon! lol

I was on this road today (amazing weekend for riding out there) but must have blown past the site. I stopped at the Caudy's Castle marker, but didn't have time to double back to hunt it down. Rats! Great tag - I'm not going to be back out there for a month but if its still around I am going to grab it!

Rebrider - sorry to hear about twohawks - hope he's doing better

Tag. Clues in picture.


Closeup of sign


Lucky is under the grass at the base of the signpost. Owner knows he's there, so if the grass is mowed Lucky should survive.

Not trying to be picky but where is the grab pic, and what are we looking for in the new tag...A cruiser on the side of a highway in Eastern WV with a capsule and a duck sitting on the back rest?
I can't make out jack with that photo...

I agree. I can't post for shut with an Android phone out in the Panhandle where there's no cell service. The damned thing posted the grab text but didn't like the photo. Lucky is on the back of the bike on the right passenger armrest. In the tag photo, Lucky is under some grass at the base of the sign.

Better now?

Leon.
