    Somewhere near Area 51. The blue road sign in the background is a Nevada Country Rd sign...

    It's just off 285 near Villa Grove, not far after you turnoff toward Bonanza. I don't think it's there any longer, it wasn't last year, but was for several years before that.

    "Unsuitable for Motor Vehicles" is a great one that is quite common in the UK. It's practically a roadsign issuing a challenge. :D

    I had to chuckle when I saw this photo. Several years ago, my wife and I rode our K12GT up to Canaan Valley on a long weekend trip with friends. As we approached Green Bank, she spied the radio telescopes and wanted to stop. She asked their purpose and, as convincingly as I could, I explained to her they were the microwave antennas for the mid-Atlantic and southern states. She looked at me curiously and I went on to tell her they supplied the power for microwave ovens all over the region. Some of the guys started snickering and the moment was lost. I need some new friends.
