    And the new Tag is further away....

    I am going to read the paper, change out the ice tire finally...

    And try to figure out who WIsixfitty is...

    The location is Dheinsville, Wisconsin. This is just north west of Germantown, Wi, where hwy 145 and hwy 167 intersect. Good location. Actually we were there on Friday night getting Dheinsville as a Villain.

    We are heading out for the day of adventuring soon. Check back for the next tag in the early afternoon.

    Cool...

    So was that picture taken on Friday or today? The sky looks like today.

    I need to spend more time up near Kewaskum, there seems to be some really good roads around there. (rain or not)



    Looking forward to the next tag....:ricky

    The above pic was take this morning. Below is a link to my Flickr page with all the 2009 Grand Tour images. There you will be able to see our Friday photo in Dheinsville, taken at the opposite corner. In truth we are not sure if that sign is acceptable, however we're gonna try! You will notice that the bike, Ville sign, rider towels and either rider or passenger is in all the photos. This is need for the photos to count.

    So, I think my Google Fu is broken cuz I am pretty good at this and can find nothing.

    I think that if you don't know where this is you can't find it?

    Or is grading papers making me stupid?

    Well, WIsixfifty commented that he knew where this was. So, no hints yet.

    So a bit off topic, but what is this '09 Grand Tour ..?..

    I will be watching this thread very closely. I like the idea of not knowing where alot of this stuff is and eventually finding out (even if i am too dumb to figure it out myself). It will give me a couple targets for future rides ...

    I was wrong!!!! :puke1 :1drink

    I remember seeing a structrure like that on the north end of the KMSD near Greenbush. Its been many years so I simply went on memory and I was wrong. There's something definately similar, just not the one.


    I did enjoy my rather chilly ride though. :D

    I like the minor Google challenges, but it seems like this is taking over the difficult part of tagging. Which then makes advances dependent on the few people that know where it's at or what it is.

    Am I confused? Is the point of a tag thread to get people out to different places to ride to, or to leave a bunch of people stymied and uninterested? :confused

    (The bridge tag was cool because of the bridge-geek site that was discovered in Googling for it.)

    I agree. I like the challenge, but, I think we need to make the ride the purpose not the research. Everyone should be able to figure out the clues in a picture or statements that go with it. I had the bridge in maybe 5-10 minutes so that was enough clue I think. I like the history aspect of some of the Tags. Now, when I am out riding I look for cool Tags in places that folks would like to ride.

    Maybe we can figgur this out.
    Its a Converted Lime Kiln fo' sho'

    Looks like theres a Hitching post in front of that fence-- Horse trails?

    Says "175" in the letters on the hitching post.

    Doesn't look like Wdnr type fencing and signs, So maybe its in a village/county park?

    I know there's a lime kiln parks in grafton and in Menomonee falls, but online searchs of those don't yeild any hints for this one...

    Here's the Full rez version from the photostream...

    I Only help YFF's Cuz my bike is dissassembled awaiting fork seals.:deal
