    Nice RR Silke- great pictures!

    I saw the SPOT tracks go past Rangely- you MUST have seen Moose there, right? I took that road back toward Dixville Notch a few years ago and saw four of them, hell I couldn't swing a dead cat on a string without hitting one... you did see one, right?

    ok, a bit more from yesterdays "gotta unsquare my tires" ride: Wolf Ridge, Big Laurel, Walnut, Turnpike, Paw Paw, Big Pine, Baltimore, Spring Creek, Max Patch, 209, Revere, Big Laurel. 130 miles of twisties and gravle. Perfect.

    1st stop: up to the airport that was build a few years ago... after one landing it was closed :lol3 (but you can buy cheap "airstrip building lots now....)

    on top of a hill next to a "ski area" - just about 4 miles north from our house as the crow flies :deal


    and it's absolutely disgusting what they did to the area:

    during construction 2007 or so - the woods above the defunct jetport are now all clear-cut (see the pic of Craig riding up a hill)

    I'm no engineer, but my first though when i saw the airport photo was "ooo windsheer". Could have saved someone a few bucks if they had asked me.. :huh
