Don't know where Avon is in IN but I lived in Indy for 6 months back in '91/'92 so know the area quite well. Used to hunt just South of Shelbyville and my ex lives on the South side of 495.

The road past the Heel Stone at Henge is a great route when the sun comes down and sillouettes it in the Summer. A long straight with a sharp 30 degree kink which can catch you out as the sun goes down. This route is due to be shut in the next few years to improve the 'ammenity' of Stonehenge

Welcome to the fold
A bit more activity here at the moment than then I should think? The Mercian regiment are on a 2 week excercise on the plain prior to operations in Afghanistan. Charlie boy was here a few days ago too. My house is being buzzed by Apache/Chinook/Lynx daily. Nightly it is parachute flares and mortars.....not that I mind....and a bit of excitement TBH
