    The people that bought the former "Holy Land " property have ducks, guineas, turkeys, chickens, donkeys and pigs on site. Whoever grabs this tag should buy a dozen eggs. The owners are very friendly and offered me a ride around the property. It is 60 + acres and there are displays depicting the resurection of Christ. Worth seeing , and the tour was offered for free.

    No chance I'd ever get those eggs home in useable condition. Hope yours faired well.

    KTM Demo rides at Star City Powersports tomorrow 06-14. Ride the all new 1290 Super Duke, the 1190 Adventure, or the 690 Duke. Be forewarned , these are some quality machines. Must have riding gear, insurance, and a valid driver's license with mc certification.

    I rode the 1290, my brother is in town, coaxed him off the turbo V Rod long enough to ride the 1290 also. Nice machine.

    New Tag.
    Not very far from where the original RAT started the journey about a year and a half ago.

    Park in the handy area and walk to the monument.

    [​IMG]

    Facing the monument, peek over the top on the left hand side. A baker's dozen paces or so behind the monument you will see this tree

    [​IMG]

    Hidden much like the last location, RAT is nestled down in the forks of the tree, under some cover
