    Thanks for looking that up, I thought it was not far off. I read about that memorial several years ago and have it on my list of places to ride to. I also hope to ride that section of the NM BDR next spring and will try to detour by the memorial. I rode the BDR from TorC west a couple of years ago.

    Providing of course that it is open. :hmmmmm:1drink

    After that questionable truck stop burrito, it very well might be.

    Here's a picture of my wife coming out of the men's side in Colorado 1983. Too much snow in front of the women's to get the door open.
    At the time she really had to go and considered this little bit of privacy a roadside attraction :)

    It is a great area scenery wise and it's quite remote plus if you are on dual sport there's lots of exploring to do

    Found it on Google maps. Wild looking place. It is called Vraj 51 Manor Rd, Schuylkill Haven, PA

    That looks like a Canadian flag fluttering on the left side of that photo.
