This is why you dont go around blind corners laid over on your side at 80 miles an hour.....didnt happen to me but when i saw this pic it reminded me of what I preach to the squids :2cents:

Even after they're gone, that corner'd still be dangerous. Imagine hitting a cow pie while on the lean! :eek:
I took the T/A down into Southern OH one day with a friend of mine to scout out a road that looked like it could be a lot of fun. The first 5 miles or so were awesome, and it was really showing potential. Passed through a small town and got back into the twisties and coming around a long right sweeper (not going too fast, since I couldn't see the exit) and there was a freaking horse and buggy coming the other way. Apparently ARK likes to take road trips up north in the summer. Anyways, that kind of ruined the prospect of that road, since every few hundred feet seemed to be littered with road apples.

*In a Monty Python-esque British accent*

But you've just crudely drawn a line on a map using paint software!


FYI, Ark, I'm part redneck myself :twofinger

lmao.....that monty python stuff is funny

ARTHUR: I am... And this my trusty servant, Patsy. We have ridden the length and breadth of the land in search of knights who will join our court at Camelot.. I must speak with your lord and master.

SOLDIER: What? Ridden on a horse?

ARTHUR: Yes!

SOLDIER: You're using coconuts!

ARTHUR: ...What?

SOLDIER: You've got two empty halves of coconuts and you're banging them together.

ARTHUR: (Scornfully) So? We have ridden since the snows of winter covered this land, through the kingdom of Mercea.

SOLDIER: Where did you get the coconuts?

ARTHUR: Through ... We found them.

SOLDIER: Found them? In Mercea. The coconut's tropical!

ARTHUR: What do you mean?

SOLDIER: Well, this is a temperate zone.

ARTHUR: The swallow may fly south with the sun, or the house martin or the plover seek warmer hot lands in winter, yet these are not strangers to our land.

SOLDIER: Are you suggesting coconuts migrate?

ARTHUR: Not at all. They could be carried.

SOLDIER: What? A swallow carrying a coconut?

| ARTHUR: Why not?

| SOLDIER: I'll tell you why not ... because a swallow is about eight inches long and weighs five ounces, and you'd be lucky to find a coconut under a pound.

ARTHUR: It could grip it by the husk ...

SOLDIER: It's not a question of where he grips it, It's a simple matter of weight - ratios ... A five-ounce bird could not hold a one pound coconut.

ARTHUR: Well, it doesn't matter. Go and tell your master that Arthur from the Court of Camelot is here.

A Slight pause. Swirling mist. Silence.

SOLDIER: Look! To maintain air speed velocity, a swallow needs to beat its wings four hundred and ninety three times every second. right?

ARTHUR (irritated): Please!

SOLDIER: Am I right?

ARTHUR: I'm not interested.

SECOND SOLDIER (who has loomed up on the battlements): It could be carried by an African swallow!

FIRST SOLDIER: Oh yes! An African swallow maybe ... but not a European swallow. That's my point.

More Monty Python:

Galahad: There it is!

Arthur: The Bridge of Death!

Robin: Oh, great.

Arthur: Look! There's the old man from scene twenty-four!

Bedevere: What is he doing here?

Arthur: He is the keeper of the Bridge of Death. He asks each traveller five questions--

Galahad: Three questions.

Arthur: Three questions. He who answers the five questions--

Galahad: Three questions.

Arthur: Three questions may cross in safety.

Robin: What if you get a question wrong?

Arthur: Then you are cast into the Gorge of Eternal Peril.

Robin: Oh, I won't go.

Galahad: Who's going to answer the questions?

Arthur: Sir Robin!

Robin: Yes?

Arthur: Brave Sir Robin, you go.

Robin: Hey! I've got a great idea. Why doesn't Launcelot go?

Launcelot: Yes. Let me go, my liege. I will take him single-handed. I shall make a feint to
the north-east that s--

Arthur: No, no. No. Hang on! Hang on! Hang on! Just answer the five questions--

Galahad: Three questions.

Arthur: Three questions as best you can, and we shall watch... and pray.

Launcelot: I understand, my liege.

Arthur: Good luck, brave Sir Launcelot. God be with you.

Bridgekeeper: Stop! Who would cross the Bridge of Death must answer me these
questions three, ere the other side he see.

Launcelot: Ask me the questions, bridgekeeper. I am not afraid.

Bridgekeeper: What... is your name?

Launcelot: My name is 'Sir Launcelot of Camelot'.

Bridgekeeper: What... is your quest?

Launcelot: To seek the Holy Grail.

Bridgekeeper: What... is your favourite colour?

Launcelot: Blue.

Bridgekeeper: Right. Off you go.

Launcelot: Oh, thank you. Thank you very much.

Robin: That's easy!

Bridgekeeper: Stop! Who approacheth the Bridge of Death must answer me these
questions three, ere the other side he see.

Robin: Ask me the questions, bridgekeeper. I'm not afraid.

Bridgekeeper: What... is your name?

Robin: 'Sir Robin of Camelot'.

Bridgekeeper: What... is your quest?

Robin: To seek the Holy Grail.

Bridgekeeper: What... is the capital of Assyria?

[pause]

Robin: I don't know that! Auuuuuuuugh!

Bridgekeeper: Stop! What... is your name?

Galahad: 'Sir Galahad of Camelot'.

Bridgekeeper: What... is your quest?

Galahad: I seek the Grail.

Bridgekeeper: What... is your favourite colour?

Galahad: Blue. No, yel-- auuuuuuuugh!

Bridgekeeper: Hee hee heh. Stop! What... is your name?

Arthur: It is 'Arthur', King of the Britons.

Bridgekeeper: What... is your quest?

Arthur: To seek the Holy Grail.

Bridgekeeper: What... is the air-speed velocity of an unladen swallow?

Arthur: What do you mean? An African or European swallow?

Bridgekeeper: Huh? I-- I don't know that! Auuuuuuuugh!

Bedevere: How do know so much about swallows?

Arthur: Well, you have to know these things when you're a king, you know.

Don't feel bad. I always guessed it was where you drew it since all the states line up there, then one day I googled it. I was surprised to find where it is and that it was drawn while we were still colonies - nothing at all to do with the WNA. Mark Knopfler (Dire Straits) did a song about Mason and Dixon a few years ago with James Taylor - "Sailing to Philadelphia."
