Grab and Tag on 3-10-13 a great day for riding!!!

+++++ Gots_a_Sol, you get a new camera...?

Ned likes history... made some on his own but that another story...


Grab - Intersection of Flowing Springs Road [SSR 17] and Shepherdstown Pike [SR 230] (Latitude 39o 23.978'N; Longitude: -77o 48.580'W).
ned on the box... guess should have been a little closer


Ned on Monument -told him it was not polite to sit on it but he insisted.

In 1910 the Jefferson County Camp, United Confederate Veterans made plans to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the War Between the States. Ably led by Col. R. Preston Chew, the Camp set about to permanently mark locations throughout Jefferson County where skirmishes or battles took place during the Civil War. Funds were raised by the Camp to place 25 concrete obelisks. Each site would serve as a reminder to posterity of the sacrifices made by the men who fought there.“Kearneysville, Uvilla, Crossing of Uvilla and Charles Town Roads”
civil War Marker 6
October 18, 1862. “The losses on both sides were considerable. No estimate of the losses could be found. Our badly wounded (see Markers One & Eight) were taken to the Uvilla churches and neighboring farm houses, and cared for. Many wounded had been left at these churches after the Battle of Sharpsburg, and those unable to get away were paroled by the Federals.”

on the way to new tag had to wait for the train.. and it was a long one...


New Tag - More Civil War history....


Due west of this tablet, 650 feet, is the Boyd House in which died, July 17, 1863, Brig.-Gen. James Johnston Pettigrew, of North Carolina, C. S. A. At Gettysburg he commanded and led Heth’s Division in the assault on Cemetery Ridge, July 3; and in the retreat was mortally wounded at Falling Water, July 14, 1863.

“He was a brave and accomplished officer and gentleman, and his loss will be deeply felt by the country and the Army.” R. E. Lee.

Erected 1918 by The North Carolina Historical Commission and The North Carolina Division, United Daughters of the Confederacy.



Hopefully the kids on 4 wheeler and man walking dog dont get nosy and find the tag...
I may go back and hide Ned a little better will post new hiding place if I do...



Upated 3-11-13 Ned said i need to update the map and stats or i would have to walk the plank.... if you see anything wrong ... let me know... thanks.

No new camera, but a new bike. I am still using my iphone but carry an older sony with me now just in case.


Sadly the vfr is already back up for sale as it isn't doing it for me. Great bike, but it doesn't fit my riding style. The drz is about perfect, just wish it wasn't so damn uncomfortable haha.

Two words...Seat Concepts.

http://www.advrider.com/forums/showt...388596&page=97

Start at the top of the page and scroll down to the bottom. H14, Hppyfngy and I all have bought these seats within the last few months and all have been more than satisfied! Hppyfngy has his seat mounted on his DRZ too!

Already have it. While noticeably better than stock, it has pushed my tolerance up to about 100 miles or so from the 50 I could stand before. And that is 100 miles for the day and I'm done and can no longer sit on the thing (already standing, sitting off to the side, sitting all the way at the back, etc by that point)



On the other hand, this vfr is super comfy and I can ride that damn thing all day. 200+ miles per tank and I can ride that straight through with only minor re-positioning of myself. Really my only complaint is the fact it is a sporty bike and I found out I don't much care for the riding position. Oh well. I can at check it off of the list of bikes I've wanted to own/ride now.

the history of the tag

MARKER NUMBER FOUR:

“Slaughter at the Cement Mill on the Potomac”
Southwest corner of the Intersection of Engle Molers Road and Trough Road. (Latitude: 39o 24.519'N; Longitude: -77o 47.442'W)
This is an account of the Battle of Shepherdstown. Following the Battle of Sharpsburg on September 17, 1862, General Lee began moving his army southward back to Virginia on the night of September 18th. The army crossed the Potomac River at Pack Horse Ford without incident. General Lee left a rear guard in place along the cliffs overlooking the river to protect the army as it continued its withdrawal. An advance of the Union army on September 19th and 20th threatened the Confederates, so Confederate General A. P Hill with his division was dispatched to stop the Union pursuit. Hill’s Division successfully repulsed the Union advance literally pushing the Union troops back across the Potomac River. One Union regiment, the 118th Pennsylvania Volunteers known as “The Corn Exchange Regiment,” suffered high numbers of casualties crossing the Potomac with 737 officers and men and re-crossing with 468. The Confederate loss was 34 killed and 231 wounded. “Soldiers of the Light Division, you have done well. I am well pleased with you. You have fought in every battle from Mechanicsville to Shepherdstown, and no man can say the Light Division was ever broken.”
