    I have everything but the distillery. My choices for grabbing one of those are either a miserable ride into the heart of a college town an hour+ away, or several hours away to the mountains. Neither of these are worth the ride at present.

    Sent from the voices in my head, and transcribed by their drinking buddy.

    Next 5

    1 - A Roadside Oddity - lots of leeway on this one, but look for something truly odd.
    Couldn't find the oddity I really wanted. But there aren't that many rockets in the hood.

    2 - A train car with graffiti - if you get busted "installing" the graffiti, post pics of the event!

    Just a reminder, if you can't quite figure out how to get to RR cars, riding a CBR down the tracks should NEVER NEVER NEVER NEVER be an option.
    I think I'm still vibrating. and it was only about 600 yards. :(

    3 - A local bakery - nothing commercial.
    [​IMG]
    4 - A Distillery
    [​IMG]
    Topo Vodka is made here. Do NOT ask how many strange looks and sidewalks/handicapped ramps/front porches I rode up on looking for a better angle. Oh well. You get this one. :lol3 And dear UNC policemen, my bad. Don't hate.

    5 - A Brewery

    Doh.
    Just realized my phone switched back to full size pics. My bad.
    Hope no one is still on dial up. If you are, let me know if you like the pics in three weeks. :rofl

    next five

    1. Election garbage. (aka any political sign cluttering up an otherwise nice pleasant bit of scenery)
    2. Something military.
    3. A dairy.
    4. Your bike in water. Be it the middle of the ocean, a lake, a raging river, the oncoming horrible frankenstorm flooding the entire east coast or just a mud puddle.
    5. Some type of motorcycle, car, or engine related history museum.

    (These are all things I passed or was in grabbing the tags today)
    :lol3

    Best Butcher in the area.

    Not much for skylines here.
    This shot is looking north at Dover, the capitol of the state; from an elevated motorway no less.

    This shot if from a town near by.

    Well four of those are easy. It's not close to Christmas yet. Curse you people. (of course my wife is already yelling for us to put up Christmas lights. :( )

    Might not be close to Christmas, but a Christmas tree farm should be available all year long.

    I pass one on the way to my dad's up in Oxford. I think it's either on 96 or Cannady Mill Road. I'll find out. This one should go pretty quickly.

    Oh yeah, and this one too. Forgot about them. From the list linked above:

    Boyce Farms

    If I were to get a little creative with "a race track", I could probably grab all these in a 20 mile loop.

    Muddy Waters songs

    1) Iodine in My Coffee - get a coffee shop - preferably something other than a Starbucks

    2) Whiskey Blues - a bar, not a brewpub, not some college beer dump, but someplace to get a drink

    3) Down South Blues - a highway sign indicating you're heading south

    4) Going Down To Main Street - Main Street anything

    5) Going Home - a view of one of the *good* roads you take when you're heading home
