    Well, if you had posted it where you should have, I would know, wouldn't I? :rolleyes

    Come to think of it, that makes at least two you owe me. :ddog

    Ohhhhhhh I owe you a lot more than two. Every time I take a ride I get at least one post office for you but I have been very bad at getting them posted and I'm 3 rides behind on my ride report and will be behind four in a few weeks after I go to Baja. :evil

    Here's the ride report http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=894229 Enjoy the report but you won't find any clues to this post office in it. :D

    Not even one guess? I take it to a different area in the NW and it get quiet in here. :lol3

    How about a clue: This post office is located in a town with four businesses; the post office, a cafe known for german potatoes, a gas station, and a tackle shop.

    Someone has to be familiar with this town. I don't know if there is a dirt route to get to it but the street ride is enjoyable.

    I'm guessing it's not in Washington, because there is a guy that has posted most of the Washington state post offices on Google Pics. Maybe 2 or 300 pics of just post offices in just Washington.

    Never been there but it was an easy find with your last clue!

    Name the road we're parked beside or the attraction to the right of the photo.

    That is correct BackCountryCruiser. It's a nice place to stretch the legs and take a little break.

    You are up.

    Okay.

    Name the road this photo was taken from.

    No guesses?
    First hint is there is no pavement within several miles of the photo.

    I like the picture and want to know where it is. My guess is on the east side of the cascades in WA perhaps the Columbia Basin. That's a large area but the best I could come up with.

    It is one of my favorite photos taken on that ride, but I'll let someone else tell you where it is.

    That sure looks like South of The Dalles....or ANYWHERE in North Sherman County, OR.

    But, I gotta WAG somewhere, so....
    Tygh Ridge Rd......maybe Center Ridge Rd that inersects it.

    That is kinda where it looks like but that's not where it's at.
    Keep trying.
