    Did anyone capture the exact route that we took? I would be interested in exploring those areas again when I had more time. Fun curvy roads and lovely scenery. Let me know if anyone captured the route (or maybe we followed @tangledupinblu 's map exactly?).

    Either way, it was a lovely way to spend Saturday morning. Thanks Josh for coordinating!!

    I haven't seen the map but could give you a list/directions for the roads we took. There are also a lot of other similar ones in this area if you do feel like exploring.

    I have the route mostly tracked in Google Maps with the standard "Your Timeline" that runs in the background (unless you turn it off). It tweaked out a few times though due to having no cell service or GPS signal. In a lot of spots it just connects straight lines between points where it picked up service. Maybe check your phone and see if you have the same thing recorded?

    I actually thought about taking my '64 instead of the bugeye just to mix things up (not a Kraut but would've added some variety), didn't seem like a good idea though. Still scraping the mufflers because lowrider, haven't put enough miles on yet to know how reliable the build will be, but mostly it's not nearly as much fun as the bugeye on winding roads. Maybe for the next impromptu cruise...

    I would appreciate it if you can spare the time. Some fun roads and pretty area. I can make my way up into the general area but any specifics would be great.

    Sure, not a problem. As far as the route we took from Somerset, here's the list of roads/turns. It can look a bit overwhelming but if you follow along on a map it should be pretty clear.

    - North on Cr C
    - Left on Cr CC
    - Right on Cr H
    - Left on Jewell St/Hwy 65
    - Left on Cr K/60th Ave
    - Right on Cr M/200th St
    - Right on Cr Y
    - Left on Horse Lake Ln
    - Right on 200th St
    - Left on 90th Ave
    - Left on 90th Ave (again)
    - Left on Cr MM/218th St
    - Right on 90th Ave
    - Left on Hwy 35
    - Right on Cr S/River Rd
    - Left on Hwy 35
    - Left on Hwy 8

    And that last turn took us into Taylors Falls. There are a plenty of other fun roads in that same area we didn't take. Don't have them marked on a map but these are a few I'd recommend. Some don't have very interesting scenery but all are fun to drive.

    - Cr MM between Cr M and Cr F
    - Oak Dr between Cr M and Cr MM
    - Big Lake Dr/180th St north of Cr K
    - 280th St between Polk St Croix (County Line Rd) and 20th Ave
    - 240th St between Cr M and Schmidt Rd
    - Summit St/Traprock Dr between Hwy 35 and 220th St

    If you're looking for dirt there's not much left unpaved but a couple short bits.

    - 90th Ave/195th St between Cr F and 200th St
    - 20th Ave between 192nd St and 185th St
    - Cherry Dr between Schmidt Rd and 240th St

    There are plenty other good ones not listed but these are all my favorite sections within 10-15 minutes of my house. If you decide to make a full outing of it there are a few interesting stops to make along the way (parks, river/lake landings and beaches, at least one waterfall, bars/restaurants once they open back up, etc). Let me know if you want to plan a day out here and I'll try to help out.
