    Ended up going over to Desoto then down to Potosi, then back over 185 towards Sullivan. But headed south. Rode some gravel towards a resort that’s named after a game fish. East of Steelville.

    Big Indian Creek Road and Chapel Hill Road. Plenty of No Stopping Parking or Looking signs around.

    You beat me to it!

    I crossed over and went a ways, but it gets paved on the other side, so I came back. Another nice day (today) for a ride, but storms are coming in.

    Wasn’t this crossing on the SBR? I seem to remember it being there. K was closed when I went down, so I cut back behind that church. I thought that was part of the SBR, but I could be wrong. Might still be as I haven’t made the SBR in a few years.

    Today was better to be riding than floating. Which is strange since floating means planning to be wet. Those campgrounds were dumping people in the rivers like crazy, even with lightning around.

    Butts road at BASS campground. And here is a scenic roadside attraction NW of Highway 44 from St Robert Best Western.

    Looks like you stayed dry! Have not seen the pumpkin cave entrance before. Hopefully it’ll still be the tag when I get time to ride again.

    Damn, I just was by the pumpkin cave yesterday. I hadn't stumbled upon this thread yet.

    Great day to ride; I had never been to Iberia, so took 42 all the way to Brumley. Great touring road and spectacular sweeping vistas.

    Old Tag: Pumpkin Cave Attraction, just east of Brumley, on county Road 42-18, also known as the Swinging Bridges road. Crossed two of the bridges into the State Park, and you could easily spend a lot of time on some of those roads.

    New Tag: To the North. North of 70 from here, maybe 100 miles? I had been there earlier, as I was interested in its ties to the Civil War. Gen Price waged a battle against the Union, and won. He occupied he town for about 3 days, before moving on towards Kansas City. There is a plaque down by the rivers edge describing the exploits, but the day I was there the museum was closed. The big item when arriving into town, is train trellis. Apparently it was the first all Iron bridge in the world. There is an overlook down behind the tag, on a side street. It juts out over the Missouri and you can get nice views from there. I can also vouch for the Wings sports bar: good sandwiches.

    Here is the tag:

    Enjoy!

    Hah! Nice to see that the game is moving onward. Something to go visit up North, as I am not as familiar with that part of the state vs the Southern half.

    Back on two wheels, and this was a good test.
    Grabbed the tag in Glasgow MO. Home of a very famous bridge and a gas powered boat! Nice roads once you get off of I-70, which really sucks. Ha

    And the new tag. A little closer to home. (St Louis). I’ve seen this little bridge for many years, but never stopped to see it closely. Have to admit, it looks better from a distance. It’s at about mile marker 151 (if I remember right) along a major east/west interstate.

    Iron, Lime, Aluminum, Silica, Carbon, and Oxygen.
    The elements in Cement.
    This cement town needed a county Jail, built one in 1909, to house the drunks that got into fights.
    Along 79 north of Louisiana and south of Hannibal

    There’s some good riding weather next week. Better than 50/50 chance this tag will change.. Just sayin.

    Good news, as I have been enjoying Ed M's TMOT Central works northwest (tracks 4 through 2) and have some tags-in-waiting. Prob will not return to MO until last week of September so any tag may ripen fully!

    I have to ask. What route is the TMOT Central northwest? And where might the tracks be?
