    Thanks..! At one time, the USFS was allowing the place to be reserved for special events. Maybe they still do, but sure doesn't look like it has been for awhile.

    I think I’ve ridden by Fern Springs a thousand times and never bothered to stop. Thanks for the post and the link

    Lots of unmaintained and deteriorating resources out there. Always pains me to see buildings and grounds falling apart unused. A frequent thought while travelling around the region.

    That's one of the more interesting tags for sure.

    Good tagging..!

    We were about to head out this AM to grab it, when I noticed Cyndy's BMW had a rear flat.. Apparently the plug I put in a few months back was leaking. Oh well; I had a new set of tires waiting anyway, so today was as good as any to put them on. I just hate ditching a tire that has a few thousand miles left on them! But better to be safe..

    That was not exactly the correct location,...... although you were at the correct underpass you were supposed to get the west side of Wells St. and you took the pic on the east side. We'll give you a pass since you were close. Good day to be out and enjoying the road.
    Great job keeping the tag moving around.

    The first picture is the new tag. The second is a small creek crossing that is a little ways down the road behind my bike.

    If you keep heading down that road you can take a trip down FS Road 252. It was a bit muddy today thanks to the rain and the crash bars on the Tenere have a couple more gashes thanks to the previously mentioned mud and my less than stellar off pavement skills.

    And your bike doesn't look as clean as it did at Goin Coastal! :jack Don't get me wrong! It's a very nice Tenere but I much appreciate an "adventure" bike that is getting dirty! Yes, the FS road is a fun little road! Great tag!

    And Ernbo back on our part of the state once again! :clap

    This one is definitely not a pavement queen. The damage was a bit worse than I expected but that's exactly why it has crash bars. At least the small gravel patch that caused the damage made it pretty easy to pick up. If I was standing in the mud I would have really struggled to get the pig back upright.

    I'll grab some Rustoleum semi-gloss black and it should clean up pretty well.

    Yup, within about a 30 minute ride from me, but I'm on-call this week and weekend and it's been busy. Nice road to ride and right in my backyard.

    That was pretty quick. Did you happen to see any evidence of my slide on 252?
