    Man what a good ride Sunday. I explored a little around enid. There are good roads all around there. 300 plus miles and back home in time for Sunday dinner. I will post a couple photos of the ride later.
    It was a good tag spot because it gave me a reason to go there and check the area out.
    :clap The water tower looks like a war of the worlds invader. :lol3

    I had also never been up around that reservoir. Really nice looking area.

    Googlable clues: Jack Kemp might have said: If David Koresh had his compound in Sheffield, not in Waco then they would have locked up his next of kin.
    Note: This tag has nothing to do with the branch davidians, David Koresh or Jack Kemp and he didn't say this but it is 4 clues. :lol3 Happy googling.:D

    It's findable without clues. I found it last night in less than 5 minutes. What's the old saying about blind squirrels and finding a nut.:rofl

    This might clear up the clues:

    Kinlock Boat Ramp :D

    I was heading somewhere else but the sun was getting low and I didn't think I would make it there intime to take photos.

    "The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, and spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement; and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly."

    Can't believe this one is still there. I rode northeast on Saturday and south today. Should have gone up and got the tag but was never close to it all weekend.

    Kinlock is the location of the first teddy bear.



    <CENTER><TABLE border=0 cellSpacing=0 cellPadding=0 width=590><TBODY><TR><TD>"The teddy bear's story begins in November 1902 when President Theodore Roosevelt was hunting in Mississippi. After an unsuccessful day, the hunting party brought a small bear cub to the camp for the president to shoot. He refused because the animal did not have a chance to defend itself."

    </TD></TR><TR><TD>"Clifford K. Berryman, cartoonist for The Washington Post at the time, sketched the incident and captured the public's imagination as well as that of American toymakers. Soon the country was flooded with teddy bears."

    </TD></TR><TR><TD>"The original teddy bear, from 1903, was given to the Smithsonian by Teddy Roosevelt's grandson, Kermit. Today that bear is in the collections of our National Museum of American History." </TD></TR></TBODY></TABLE></CENTER>
