    Tag-o-rama rules apply, public or suspiciously accessible DIRT "roads" in washtenaw or livingston counties are the idea. Picture tag with an obvious clue, sign or landmark is in order. No archived photos, just go get a fresh one and have fun!:muutt

    No "tag-o-rama" in the thread title? Might be hard to attract new posters

    There y'all go, good point... let's hope it pulls a few more in. BTW, if anyone is interested BMW Touring Club Detroit has a Oakland county dirt road ride this Saturday ending at Detroit BMW open house to see the latest in German engineering...and hopefully some gratuitous hot dogs, er veinerschnitzel? It will start in Clarkston at 0845, 70 miles of back roads to dealership, get back any way you like. I can direct you to GPX track file if needed. And no you don't need a BMW...:deal

    On to the fun! Self explanatory, didn't have a ton of time to look for something better...if you find the intersection, you will see the tanks.

    The "burgh"? of Nicholson, far NW corner of Livingston County..

    A closer look... "Methodist Episcopal Church", Nicholson is an unincorporated community named after postmaster Joseph C. Nicholson. Don't try and Mail anything though, the post office has been gone since 1901.

    Family weekend obligations have kept me from some recent fun GLDS rides - so I hope to get out on Saturday to knock off one of these tags. I've got a good one picked out.....

    I ran into two guys on KTMs this morning. They got me in the tag photo. I cheated a bit and pulled up on the asphalt parking lot.


    Now for the new tag... In the past Washtenaw/Dirt stuff, we often had themes. We had bridges. We had cemeteries. I have a new proposal: whorehouses! Here is the first - just a few miles from the Grist Mill. The street shares a name with a magician who froze himself in a block of ice recently.



    Good hunting...

    Wow....whorehouses huh? That could be tricky, btw do you think it's intentional that auto correct changes "whorehouse" to "whitehouse"? Lol... I'm off to look for a whorehouse then! Where did you find that this was a past (or current?) Lol, house of ill repute?

    Sorry - I was probably a bit harsh with that label. You just don't see enormous pink houses very often and that idea popped into my head. I ask forgiveness if I have offended the owners! I'm sure there is no connection with anything of the sort. The place does also have an absolutely awesome garage that I did not include in the pic.

    Hahaha, thought you had stumbled onto some local lore!! Possibly past history of a brothel... No apologies required, it is a nice shade of pink though so I understand ..lol.

    I think the design of the house and the outbuildings is quite nice, but the color choice leaves something to be desired. the road closed sign is on White road north of cohoctah road as it crosses Cranberry Creek.

    Technically it's closed, but the signs are offset to one side of the road so you could easily ride around them.
