    I took a look on ye olde Google earlier as well, the Street View for that general area is from, IIRC, 2009 so it was prior to that heritage area being official.

    I use street view a lot at work to check out locations where buildings are being renovated or built new. Helps to see the lots, general area, facing and surrounding buildings, etc. Downside is like what happened yesterday where the street view is old enough that you show up to look at a building and it's not what you saw online!

    Took a nice ride through Kettle Moraine state forest area, then just country roads north. Didn't come up with anything interesting, so just going with one of the 2 I snapped last weekend. Tag with bike, and a closer one to see the plaque writing. 20190728_150241_HDR.jpg 20190728_150255_HDR.jpg

    Finally made it back from CO and was surprised to see this one still here. They were taking down all the banners from the Burger days when I was rolling through.

    I had the last tag, but this is just too easy to grab any day of the week for me. Someone get this in the next week or its moving down river 8.5 miles to another history spot.

    I'd go grab it, but I'm not going to have any opportunity to tag anything new. :muutt

    Cool tag and location. About smack dab in the middle of Appleton. S Vulcan ST.





    Circling Winnebagy clockwise, this is near that park that has elevated cliffs and stuff.

    I recognized the spot immediately. I use to ride my 85 SP600 out there on the ice in the winter. Figured I'd give it week first, but now I see you added the location. There are breakwaters constructed of huge rocks on each side of the marina just East of there. One year the snow drifted on the back side of the rocks, then freezing rain, and cold again. You could actually drive up off the lake up the ice covered snow drift onto the rocks. This is the only pictures I have left. 1992? 20190831_153538_HDR.jpg

    Stopped at HighCliff area today to grab that old tag and I see Im a week late to the party.

    Question now is, is the curent Tag Lambeau field, or the Neenah lighthouse yet?
