nice grab. I should have grabbed the tag yesterday when we rode down Teft Hilll Trail (aka Twisted Throttles backyard) on our way to the washed out section of New London Turnpike [with matpoc and mrt10x].. At that point in the day I had foprgotten about the tag though!

Tiggity tag. Not sure if I'm on the right side of the bridge but hoping for extra credit wielding the big 950 in this spot! I think I went thru someone's back yard to get here.......

I didn't mean for it to be that difficult. I just wanted someone to enjoy all the whoops when approaching from the east. Good job anyway.

I don't think it was difficult, just that my GPS took me in through a neighborhood, and then through a back yard and onto some single track I normally wouldn't ride alone (cuz picking this pig up alone really sucks), before i got on the main trail.

Looked like a good area to dirt ride!

new tag coming soon!

I was very near today.

My Garmin Nuvi 550 was giving me fits in your woods. I got to within 40' of the coordinates and then did the where am I thing and it didn't match your numbers. Then I tried the side trails watching the "where am I numbers " . I could get one number exact, but not both. Then I rode thru the woods, no trail or path, and I ended up back where I'd been. Anyway I enjoyed the area, the hill climbs and puddle go arounds. Just having a GPS doesn't seam to be the answer. I guess I have to learn how to use it. I couldn't find the leaning tree.
