    Oops, didn't realize there was a sequence of events.

    The first page of this thread refers to some "rules" but doesn't say what they are. Never saw a Tag-o-rama before joining this site.

    I'm going riding today. I'll get the Dixboro Road tag.

    I'll see you your bridge and raise you a barn.

    I approached your bridge from the east side (corner of N. Dancer and Liberty roads). There were some of those big traffic abutments with an arrow sign between them. The arrow sign uprights were too narrow to just drive through, but I was able to snake my handlebars between the uprights and sneak past, (try that on a fat bike!) and was treated to a beautiful leaf covered two-track trail to the bridge, albeit only about a half mile long. I've got GoPro video I'll try to post later. My pic is just on the other side of the traffic abutments from your pic. Nice old plank bridge. I walked out on it first to see if it could hold me and my bike.

    The barn is off Webster Church Road if I remember correctly.

    The cottonwood was an old barn that was purchased and renovated extensively. It was planned to be a wedding/event venue... Well, the neighbors didn't like their peace and quiet interrupted and through legal means put a stop to it. I hear it was amazing inside, and is now slated to be a single family residence. At least this is the story i was told :deal. Beautiful day to ride yesterday!!!
