Let's see if this one gets approved.
Weird, but not unusual. It's not that you are "on a list"...some announcement threads are handled differently. If you posted a link in an announcement thread, it may require approval.

Went in and "validated your post Counter, since there was no reason for it to be flagged, that's probably why it didn't get reviewed (the great internet Catch-22. I assure you it's just some anomalyous glitch. Let me know if it's not wherever you put it.

Then why not move this thread to someplace that posts don't have to be pre-approved?

like General or Schedule a Ride?

anywho....I can't believe NONE of the AWESOME roads in AR or even Custer Park in SD made the list in the OP.

actually I meant the 15 listed by Counter Steer, not the ones listed in the OP list.

Hwy 123 is freaking AWESOME!!! (top on the OP list)

and more specifically...here's an article pertaining to the AR roads in particular.

Just occurred to me to post that, if anyone is planning to take this route in 2012, he/she might want to reconsider.

This road was trashed by Hurricane Irene in late August. It was finally re-opened about a week ago (more than 4 months later), and a friend of mine who scouted it in her car says it's still barely passable.
