    Funny story about that! I tried single tracking this thing in my woods for fun. Going down a decent sized slick hill, I grabbed a fistful of front brake as my brain is trained for that to be the clutch. Needless to say, we went for a while ride into some briars......

    Ha! We decided to cover it in stickers since the paint is shot. Any sticker is free game!

    You're practically in my back yard, here!

    This is about a mile from my house. If anyone makes plans to come get the tag, let me know ahead of time and I'll ride along to the next one!

    Well, I just couldn't wait any longer for someone to come get this tag. I see this bridge every couple days, it's about a mile down the road.

    Now, I know Big Kate has probably been tagged in here before. Probably more than once. But, we're running out of time with her. My understanding is that they'll be shutting this mine down in October, and Big Kate's fate is unknown. Good possibility she'll be dismantled and hauled somewhere else - Florida or somewhere. So, someone better hurry up and get this one!

    This was a fun tag, too. Thanks to the amazing and lovely @Nevroski for joining the adventure! :beer

    I made a spur of the moment run down there this afternoon, but didn't have the time to get to the next place I was planning to tag so I thought I'd just wait until someone else grabbed it. Cool bridge! I'll have to see if Google can lead me to Big Kate.

    You’ll have to stop by next time you’re in the area of the bridge! I have a couple miles of single track down here.

    I did my tag on a sunday afternoon... my thought for 5 hours and 183 miles was someone else was going to get a new tag before me lol


    About ten minutes and I was able to find big Kate via google. Than another ten to find it on map lol Screenshot_20190927-025515_Maps.jpeg

    Someone should go grab this, before the place shuts down (If it hasn't already?)

    Big Kate's approximate location: 38.209111, -87.321647 / County Rd 1325 E, Lynnville, IN 47619

    I’ve thought about it once or twice but it’s an all day round trip for me with a fair amount of highway miles.

    Big Kate is still there, although she's parked now. But, you can see her and get a good picture with her yet from the road.
