    I found the powerline tag on reserve, so I figured I better turn around and head for Dexter town. It was starting to get cold and dark, so I figured Ibetter haul (hall) the mail down the road to gas up and head home before it got too late. I took a little shortcut to Dexter-Pinckney Road on a dirt road with the same name as the President. Not Obama, but the then president of the university I attended way back in the sixties. The U. has the same name as the state we live in, and their football team kicks a pretty mean field goal.

    For those following, the pet cemetery was on jewell just west of platt.

    Let's just say: "Every picture tells a story don't it?" I looked at the powerline tag and saw: rural, wooded, hilly country; single row of truss-type high tension towers that take an abrupt right turn just two towers in from the road. I also know a friend that lives off of North Territorial & he has a powerline as just described that runs right past his property as it crosses N. Territorial. The very same powerline!

    Somebody go shoot a barn this weekend.

    Certainly no low blow intended. Just trying to provide a nice cryptic puzzle for someone to nail the new tag.

    Excellent work.

    Joslyn Lake Road is one of the better roads (IMHO) in the county.

    Im gonna go out this weekend and hunt down this barn, if someone doesnt beat me too it.
    The high winds can be a bit nerve racking on the Versys and DRZ... but no problem for the Urals 3 wheels :D

    I am going to try to get out today and get the barn...

    Not to kick an apparently dying horse but next weekend looks like some great weather might be a good chance to do the "group" thing.... just a thought if not then I may be headed up to Huron National Forest for some two track stuff...

    A group of a dozen or so GLDS folks rode the "Devils Lake to Hell and back" ride yesterday. After stopping for shitty food and shittier service at the Dam Site Inn (no worse than was expected) I found myself TIP-ping the LADY with the tattooed boobs. That ought to be enough of a hint. But after heading east out of the lunch stop, the route took the first right, then the first left.....and passed this tag. I blew my chances for a photo being the last guy in the pack and not wanting to lose the group.

    I hadn't ridden the dirt roads in that area in several years. It was great to see how little had changed.

    That may have been Livingston County. It was hard to tell though (without a map).
