    This. I haven't been yet, but I imagine it's like Disneyland in the sense that you might have a fun day, you might have a lousy day, but it's still a place you have to go just to say you did. Doesn't mean you'd buy a season pass or anything.

    Like many have said, there are plenty of good, even better, roads out there that are a lot less crowded, if at all.

    But let's not kid ourselves: if the Dragon *was* devoid of all that pirate/squid/cop/truck/tourist traffic-- if it didn't have this "name" and marketing and all that jazz--- we'd all salivate over having this super-awesome secret twisty road to ourselves, right?

    Don't hate the road, hate the players :wink:

    Interesting. It looks like my participation in this thread piqued a little curiosity. Seems someone wanted to view my profile.

    At least those folks didn't hide the fact that they visited your profile. Lot's of people 'sneakin' around for whatever reason? :huh Sometimes this place reminds me of high school, mostly middle school. :D

    A couple of years ago I was dualsporting there near the state line. It was late afternoon and the sunlight was coming through the trees. I came around a corner and encountered like 10 little rodent-sized striped things milling around in the road. My shameful brain said, "WTF, are those dachshunds?"

    Yes, genius. Wild Appalachian dachshunds foraging in the woods. Or maybe they're boar piglets and momma is just off your left shoulder. TIME TO GO

    Boar are very common around here; I see more of them than I see deer or bears. Killgurl hit an adult boar while riding her motorcycle through the Gap a couple of years ago. Messed her up pretty good, too.

    And that was my point. The Goverment let people do whatever they wanted then with the buffalos, also hoping to seriously weaken the Great Plains tribes... it worked ;)

    Hogs aren't indigenous to America. Neither are horses. Look what happened to Australia when some idiot introduced rabbits.

    Uhh, no. Unless you count the 700 odd visits to my profie, by the same 10 visitors.

    Or my sister for that matter. I'm trying to find peace with this sad reality. Thanks for helping.

    In the Mod Squad we trust, yes.

    The 'Government" is us dude!!!! Maybe someone can attribute this quote, " Where the government fears the people there is liberty. Where the people fear the government there is tyranny."

    Self restraint is what it takes and equals maturity.

    I went once to say I did it. On the way to somewhere from somewhere tho. Not as a trip in and of itself.

    BTDT

    Palomar is fun. ...but like Deal's Gap, its had its share of squids, angry locals, bicyclists, and cops.

    There're other roads in the area that are as fun or more fun, but they're farther out.

    What are you doing posting pics on this thread? Don't you know they interfere with the flow of the words of wisdom that would otherwise be uninterrupted? Please refrain, before the pic-to-BS ratio goes through the roof.
