    Need a little help getting this one on the tag map. I found a Colemans Creek north of Coffeeville and a bajillion "Cut off rd" segments in MS. Was looking for one up in Switch's area...

    We placed the new tag at a minute till six in the BNF. A half mile from a resting place in Zion, you will see this huge oak on the east corner of two intersecting roads. Hollow pine tree with a red paint stripe on the west.

    I figured the mascot needed a new place to keep from getting eaten, since the last one was free lunch for woodland vermin. I put it inside a plastic container to keep it a bit safer from the hungry mascot eaters.

    It's under a pile of straw and bark at the base of the pine tree marked with a red stripe in the left side of the pictures.
    The gravel is really scarce on this road as of now. It's more hard packed than gravel. I could ride any of my bikes through these roads in the condition they're in now.

    Pretty much a dead giveaway with these two clues. Any more and you would have the GPS cords to go by.

    I've not ridden in Bienville so it took a while to find this spot.

    Found Dragrat (I keep wanting to call him Ace) exactly where he was placed. Is the drag part because he's a dragon or because he's in drag. I mean look at that eye liner and eye shadow and don't forget the painted nails. I think it needs a female name. Good idea on the plastic coffin since she's made of soft rubber. I'll leave her in it when I get out to place her.

    :clap


    Dragrat came from Dragon and Rat. The first mascot was a rat named Ug.

    How were the roads in there, have they put any fresh gravel on them?
    Looks like a maintenance crew has been in there filling that big rut at the intersection since we were there last. :ear

    No new gravel. The rut is there I just didn't show it in my pictures. There were several snotty clay sections too.

    On the mural side is a side entrance door shown here.

    This is to the right of the door's platform.

    And you can just see the two bricks I used to cover the plastic container to the right on the concrete platform.

    Looks like they paved the road you parked on since the street view photos were made.
