Cool tag either way, Denny and Mike.

Edit, my error, that area is the Little Switzerland of Ohio. See: www.villageofsugarcreek.com/

Lets see, gale force winds, rain and ..................

Hey Solace, were the folks that live there have anything to say as you were rutting up their yard?

Looking at the size of the stone makes one wonder how long did it take to build and how did they lift them in place?

The owner of the barn told me that the larger stones weighed at least 2,000 pounds. If you look at the stone over the door it has a date...1883. On the opposite side of the barn there's another door with a dated stone...1884.

To lift them into place.......................they grunted.

He also told me that the gaps were left between the stones not to let light in during the day but to let the darkness out at night. He said that it works so well that no "artificial" lighting is needed inside the barn at all.

Yeah, I saw their NE thread on page #3. Maybe they should have an ADV Owners thread for those who just like to say that they have a bike.

I was just over that way for the last tag. I would have thought that the eastside riders would have gone for it today with the weather finally breaking open. Crap more rain tomorrow and I am on Lake Erie all weekend.

BTW how many registered riders from the NE Ahia are there? How many really play the game? Just wondering?

The question is more like, How many people venture more than 60 miles to get a tag

Me? Never! I simply wait in the wings ready to head out for the easy kills that are only 40 or 50 miles away.
