Another Church Tag

A little tag ride with some fellow ADV'ers, yea!
St. Luke's Church
Amid stately oaks south of the James River in Virginia stands a handsome brick Gothic church which has stood vigil over the community of Isle of Wight County through almost 400 years of conflict, peace, despair and prosperity. Traditionally, Historic St. Luke’s Church, formerly called the Old Brick Church, was founded in 1632 as a beacon, a fortress, a mission, and a gathering place for colonists facing unbearable hardship in the early days of the colonies





Put the egg on the outside of the gate, it's under the traffic cone(that looks like it's been there since 1632) next to the light pole and green box

Cool2 New Tag!!

CLUES: This cemetery is a large, sprawling cemetery located in Virginia. Characterized by rolling hills and winding paths overlooking the James River, it is the resting place of two United States Presidents, James Monroe and John Tyler, as well as the only Confederate States President, Jefferson Davis. It is also the resting place of 25 Confederate generals, more than any other cemetery in the country. Included are George Pickett and J.E.B. Stuart.

The Cemetery was opened in 1849, constructed on land known as "Harvie's Woods" that was once owned by William Byrd II. It was designed in the rural garden style, with its name, "Hollywood," coming from the holly trees dotting the hills of the property.

In 1869, a 90-foot (27 m)high granite pyramid was built as a memorial to the more than 18,000 enlisted men of the Confederate Army buried in the cemetery.

MONEY SHOT


From where the shot was taken, there is a cannon, look in the barrel and you shall find the Egg....







GO GET IT!!!

Yeah, me too. I should make a run to Hampton, but feel like tinkering around on the bike instead.

Virginia TOR

Didn't the North America tag start as a Virginia TOR?

Can't you folks move it more then 50 miles? You're gonna run out of room on the egg for signatures pretty quickly if you make it a local tag game. I say minimum distance should be 300 miles. That would get you closer to NJ, right?

You broke, it, you fix it.

The pictures, though, were very clever.
