So, Ducgonzo and I

We went for a ride

Over to the lean-to


And then we continued on into a network of dirt roads that eventually dumped me out in Stokes (It would have been much easier to come in from the west.)

He didn't say very much, he kept repeating something about a cranky old man, always complaining.

Ducgonzo has already been placed. New tag coming up.

No wonder. Ducgonzo is a girl, you pervert! Not surprising she didn't talk to you much!

OK Here it is!

NEW TAG***NEW TAG***NEW DIRT TAG***

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth

Then took the other as just as fair
And having perhaps the better claim
Because it was grassy and wanted wear
Though as for that, the passing there
Had worn them really about the same

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet, knowing how way leads onto way
I doubted if I should ever come back

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence
Two roads diverged in a wood
And I took the one less traveled by
And that has made all the difference

Where's the duck?

Ducgonzo sat on the large rock in middle of the fork.

But he/she/it felt exposed, so he/she/it climbed underneath

After the duck was safely under the rock, I nested HER with some leaves to keep the animal lovers and hunters from finding her.

THE CLUES***CLUES***
At this fork bear left

Continue until the pavement ends.
On the left side of the road will be signs like this

On the right side of the road will be signs like this

And if you continue until the end of the line, you will run into signs like this


(This is a public road and is the access to a State wildlife managment area.)

It was pretty bad going in. I went up the hill on Bevans Road from 521/West Owassa Turnpike. I would not have made it without TKC's. I went out heading west, I think I ended up on Struble road.

I have them, but they are only for the last resort.
Go find it, you're SuperEnduro will love this road.

Way to go HAYSTACK You are the TRUE ADVENTURER.
No lowering the bar for you.

Coming up on the KLR from Struble rd past the shelter wasn't easy on a worn stock tire at that rock passage. Leaving went down to 521, shorter distance but water and loose rock.

Again, Congrats and thanks for keeping it moving

She's Safe!

Got to her in a nick of time......seen a pretty big bear just before the tag spot It was crossing the trail then kept going into the woods

Thanks Haystack! I wanted to go out for a ride on the dirt bike

Tag was located at the end of Rock Lodge Road, Stockholm, NJ


I rode it to the end seen Haystacks tracks
Shame to see another '67 Firebird Convertible.... wasted


Then took her for a little swim at the swamp at the end of trail

On the way home she made me stop here trying to sneak a peek


Stopped to meet some new friends




Then I had to save her from the tarantula


New tag tommorrow (weather permitting)
Yeah us fair weather riders don't like to go out when the roads are icy to possibly get hit by cagers
