I didn't think I was going to make it up and I was dreading the return trip because of it. Thankfully I met a guy along the way that told me an easier way to get out. And yes, that is ice on the moat.

Because no one would believe me (today of all days), here's the proof.





I should enjoy the ensuing discussion about decimal degrees versus decimal minutes...

Thanks for letting me know about this area. I've been looking for good spots to go. I don't think I'll be raising the bar today. I'll keep the next spot simple.

Holy crap...mad props for doing that on a DL1000

My tag pic and coordinates were actually on the other side...you came in from the long and hard way

Funny...I was riding out there today (went through that exact spot), wondering if anybody would go get it.

My ride out was easy in comparison to that one freakin' hill. Now I know what it's like out there so I should be better prepared for it. Knobbies are now on my list for one thing... :)

This one is pretty easy. It is a landmark, but the point is the nice twisty road associated with it. It is easily one of my favorite roads in the area and it is also part o' my daily commute. I have a couple of recommendations for it though. First, don't drive out the way you came in otherwise you might miss some good bits o' the road. Second, please don't do the speed limit, otherwise it will just be boring.

I was there yesterday. I've been waiting to see if there was anyone else into it. Not to mention I have no idea where to go next.

Did you ride that whole road?

Just put it someplace that sings to you...some road that makes you smile.

The thing I like about this game is the ability to put the tag in places that you otherwise couldn't due to not being able to readily find it on the Interwebby.

I drove the whole road and it was great. I really should've turned around at the end to give it another go.

I've only been up here for less than 6 months and only had my bike for 3. I'm still finding places every time I go out.





Here goes. Just found this today and it's nothing impressive. This spot is simply an excuse to go driving but I will say that you can pick some good roads to get here regardless of the direction you come from.
