Saturday - The Good Life Gravel Adventure Recon

It was a beautiful day for a ride. Six of us left D Street to recon possible routes for The Good Life Gravel Adventure. I'm happy to report that we found some sweet gravel and dirt roads and have established over half of the route. Lots of rolling hills with several stretches of dirt MMR roads.

Every gravel ride is unique. Today was no exception. We've ridden most of the roads that we hit today numerous times in the past, but always seem to notice something different or new. Such as a mile marker for Prairie Home, a turkey farm with thousands of gobblin' birds, a couple in a pickup truck taking their dog for a jog on the gravel, curious and friendly rural town folks with ideas of how to make the world a better place, and interesting pieces of "art". Good stuff.

Those are really nice looking mile markers. Old I assume? :)

I'm not sure how old they are, but they've been around a long time. I'm guessing 100+ years old. There's a lot of these markers surrounding Lincoln and in Lancaster County. It's always a joy to find a new concrete marker on gravel rides. Just when we think we've found them all another one pops up.
