    Thought it would be nice to have one spot dedicated to covered bridges. This first one is in NH (don't recall where) while in route to Mt. Washington from PA. The second bridge is in PA discovered while I was trying to get lost...

    Here is a Road Trip that I did with my Yamaha XT-250

    Trip…to explore the <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:smarttags" /><st1:place w:st="on"><st1:placeName w:st="on">Wayne</st1:placeName> <st1:placeName w:st="on">National Forest</st1:placeName></st1:place>.<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:eek:ffice" /><o:p></o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>
    From <st1:City w:st="on">Sandusky</st1:City> <st1:State w:st="on">Ohio</st1:State> to <st1:place w:st="on"><st1:City w:st="on">Marietta</st1:City> <st1:State w:st="on">Ohio</st1:State></st1:place>.<o:p></o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>
    Side trip to <st1:place w:st="on"><st1:State w:st="on">West Virginia</st1:State></st1:place>. (No picture on this report but the riding was great…very rough trails and access roads up and down through the mountains)

    <o:p></o:p>
    780 miles traveled in three days on a Yamaha XT-250.

    <o:p></o:p>
    First stop was in <st1:placeName w:st="on">Rosco</st1:placeName> <st1:placeType w:st="on">Village</st1:placeType> in Coshocton <st1:State w:st="on"><st1:place w:st="on">Ohio</st1:place></st1:State>…Lunch time.

    A little detour to check out the <st1:place w:st="on"><st1:placeName w:st="on">Wills</st1:placeName> <st1:placeType w:st="on">Lake</st1:placeType></st1:place> area off SR-83 just South of Coshocton…I heard that is was a good off road area. Well, it looked great. I did not spend much time there but I will be back.

    I got to <st1:place w:st="on"><st1:City w:st="on">Marietta</st1:City> <st1:State w:st="on">Ohio</st1:State></st1:place> that night and stayed at the Best Western.
    <o:p></o:p>
    The <st1:place w:st="on"><st1:placeName w:st="on">Wayne</st1:placeName> <st1:placeName w:st="on">National Forest</st1:placeName></st1:place> is just out of town to the East.

    <o:p></o:p>
    The roads in the National Forest are great. I traveled SR-26 from <st1:City w:st="on"><st1:place w:st="on">Marietta</st1:place></st1:City> to Woodsfield through the National Forest. From there I took SR-78 to SR-536 to <st1:City w:st="on">Hannibal</st1:City> then SR-7 back to <st1:place w:st="on"><st1:City w:st="on">Marietta</st1:City></st1:place>.
