Been looking for a 47 for a while now, where can I find one...

EDIT: Nevermind, I think I found my 47, it is right here south of me on NM 47...

Now I have another 6 months to find a 48.

Your 6 months is up! (I keep time like a bank with a mortgage note!)

I managed to get a 2-fer! As I pulled into the park to get a pic with the river for the Motorcycle Picture Game, I noticed a truck parked there with a "48" on the license plate. The owner was a good sport and agreed to park his truck by Ruby so I could get a pic of them together. Oh, and my 5yo had to model his high-speed riding position, lol.

Maybe you'll have better luck finding highway 49? ;)

Damn! There is a house just around the block that I was going to snap a picture of on another ride and I thought I could get away with putting it off for a week!

Good job, let's find number 49.

Alright!

50 should be easy as pie. Or maybe 50 pies? Mmm...

You can push it a measly 200 yards... ;)
