Grab!

Ebenezer Bapist Church and Cemetery. Corner of Airmont and Ebenezer Church Rd. Western Loundoun county.

There are some great roads in that area.

And Tag!
I think everything you need to know is in the picture.

Just watch out for the traffic.

Good job Motocox!

This is one reason why most of us have migrated either to laptops with broadband access cards, or iPhones/Blackberry's. Makes a good 'Brucing' much less likely, and the ride home from a tag can be at a leisurely pace, instead of gunnin' it all the way.

I took my pic at about 7:05, than had to stop for the new tag. All in all, about an hour to get home.
This was my first grab and tag ever. I finally popped my cherry!

Good, grab my tag and get a move on!

Next up

George Mason was a pillar in the community...this one is a little more than a mile and a half south of the entrance to his home.



You do not have to stray far from the road (I am parked on it in the picture) and nearly got hit by a car as I took it).

***Note the Beaverdam Resevoir map on the tank bag....Bruced!

Just in case you can't make out the letters.

Curse you binaryh4x and steveontheway!!!

In the State TOR I enjoy trying to figure out the clues and if possible (but not all that often) go get it.

I can see where the NOVA TOR is going to cause problems both at work (nice day like today) and at home...honey I'll be right back.....

I know what ya mean. My wife is knocked up, barefoot and in the kitchen right now. She gave me a look the other night when I went after that tag. And stupid work sent out an email that they are now monitoring internet access, so I have to limit my time at work.

I was going to play until I saw this. I could understand on a sport bike forum but this is ADVrider!

Loudon county has more miles of unimproved roads (gravel/dirt) than any other county in Virginia! Such a shame to rule it out...
