I think I saw you heading the other way on Rt 20? I had just enough signal to post from the tag spot. I meant to leave early in the morning to pick it up but work got in the way.

The House

The House was built in 1752 by Moses and Elizabeth Porter on a tract of land known as “Forty Acres and its skirts.” These acres had been owned in common by the householders in the northeast quarter of the stockaded town of Hadley when it was laid out in 1659.

Good one. I can't believe no one had tagged that town yet.
Not only do I have to post from home, but, I still use a camera, which I forgot to bring to work today. So I'll have to go home 1st, and prolly got bruced again.
I did take rt 20 from middlefield to huntington last night, I also saw Peter wave to me (driving in a car) on town hill rd on the way to the tag,

Do you have a laptop or netbook? Makes tag life a lot less hectic. Plenty of WiFi out there for uploading,,, libraries, McD's, Starbucks, Staples, pretty much anywhere.

One of my daily objectives is to try a new road or street. This tag thing sure has helped me find some nice ones. With my "ancient" technology, I may just have to shoot for the "Most Bruced" award. ;-)

There's a silver lining in every cloud!!

This is the main reason I like playing the tags,,,, I've found some real cool things and roads that I normally would have never found.

Same here. I found some beautiful roads on this trip that I'll revisit. When the dirt road got down to where it was almost single track though the RT wasn't all that happy. All part of the "adventure". We are blessed to live in this part of the commonwealth with so many great roads.

Sorry you were Bruced

I like to pick an old tag as a destination. No rush and I get to enjoy all the cool places people have been.
Plus I am guaranteed to not get bruced...

That bridge I posted is pretty far from any McD's, Sbux or Staples. Most towns have a library of some sort but is it open, and do they have wifi? They probably have a desktop set up for pubic use. But some western MA towns don't have high speed internet. There is no cable TV in my entire township for cable modems, and DSL only reaches part of the town (it reaches the library buy not my house). I use a cellular modem at home.

I was using the commercial businesses as an example. There are many others that provide free wifi. Including many restraints. Most libraries don't turn off the wifi when they are closed. You can use it from the parking lot. Many town offices, churches and local museums also have free public wifi. My town doesn't have cable either but plenty of people still have DSL or satellite internet. I can ride down any road in my town and pick up a wifi signal.

My point is that you are never far from being able to upload a pic or two. Better than riding home to see that you have been bruced. And you can continue riding.

You could pick up an old out of date smart phone and just use it for the wifi. Take pic, find a wifi signal, upload and ride.
