  • Make sure you have your GPS set to the site as there are no signs or any mention of the place until you are at it. There is about a half mile of driving on gravel road, so be wary of if your car can handle that. It’s also about a quarter mile walk on uneven dirt and grass to get to the site. It is very surreal and I recommend taking the 15 minutes to check it out. Many people have brought items to leave there, if I knew that I would have brought something too!
  • Nice spot to pay homage to rock and roll and American history. Short walk, nice little parking spot, and free! There’s a tip jar though if one feels obliged to help the farmer keep this spot open and available.
