Just finished a 400 + mile ride today. GPS on shortest distance sure is interesting.
I was heading south to the Florida Panhandle through Alabama. The pics were taken between Birmingham and Montgomery between I-65 and US-231.Now that's what I called an adventure Glad the V made it look easy. Where were you heading to (and from where)?
I just had the same thing happen to me on a cross country run where I couldn't figure out why the GPS kept taking me down one lane roads that frequently looked like someone's driveway. However these detours became highlights of the trip. The last one got a little worrying though as 40 miles down a one lane country road things started to get a little hairy and my buddy didn't have enough fuel to turn around (and she was on a heavily laden cruiser so I was not popular that day). Had to keep plugging on and hope the road continued onto the town that was not far ahead.
Erm, is this the main road into Ketchum?
Thanks. I will look them up.if you want dirt roads... anything just north of phenix city, AL will have roads called Lee road and then a number afterwards..those are all dirt roads.
If you want windy roads, I would go to north AL, GA or lower TN. Those are some excellent places.
Good stuff. After my last New York to Pennsylvania by trail excursion, my Gold Wing buddy has disallowed me from using the "Shortest Way" feature of my GPS.Just finished a 400 + mile ride today. GPS on shortest distance sure is interesting.
