New Improved Richmond VA Tag-O-Rama

This thread is replacing the old Richmond Commuter Tag thread.

Rules:

The geographic limits to the game are the following:

City of Richmond and any county bordering the city of Richmond VA,
City of Petersburg
City of Colonial Heights
Hanover inside the SouthAnna/Pamunkey rivers,
New Kent west of 155/608,
Goochland east of 522,
Powhatan east of 522/609

Rule #1 "One tag at a time, the tag must be find-able and on legal roads of any type (paved, dirt gravel, etc). We don't want anyone trespassing to place or grab a tag. Include clues in your tag. Don't make the clues useless, not everyone is a Jeopardy contestant wanna be." Also be sensible. We want to be safe so don't stop in the middle of the highway to take a picture of mile marker 76 on I95 north as a tag.

Rule #2 File photos are acceptable for setting a tag, BUT are unacceptable for claiming a tag. (This ain't tag JoMomma style.)

Rule #3 No whining.

For those of you who are new to tag in general. This is the way it works. A photo is taken of a bike in a scene. It is posted on this thread. Clues are provided for the tag's location. You solve the clues or recognize the location from the pic. You ride out to the location. Put your bike in the same scene.Take a pic and identify the location in your post's subject heading. If you are the first to post your pic on the thread, then the new tag's location is yours to determine. The cycle repeats itself.

1st tag, carried over from old thread

From Higworld:

New tag! Yea, it's not hard to find, nor fun to get to. I changed my oil and needed a short test run. So this is what you get.

Since New Kent and Hanover do not share a border with Richmond I guess that means they are now out of the playing area? Only counties will be Henrico and Chesterfield??

Damn man, some of us have day jobs and stuff!

True to the commuter tag idea, I grabbed the tag this morning on my way into the office and a new tag will be posted on the way home. Of course, I may be taking a slightly scenic route...

I'd also vote for an area expansion - a 25mi radius around Richmond seems reasonable but... it's hard to define/check a radius while on the road. At the risk of making this WAY too complicated, maybe Richmond, Henrico, Chesterfield and:

Hanover inside the SouthAnna/Pamunkey rivers,
New Kent west of 155/608,
Goochland east of 522,
Powhatan east of 522/609
??

OK sounds good. 25 miles give or take now place the f'n tag so I can grab it real quick before the wife knows I'm gone.

Updated boundaries

I updated the geographic limits since everyone whined, err I mean voted.

Since the boundaries are bit more complicated now, anyone want to go on google maps and make a nice map with the boundaries marked?

I know too. Subtle hint, but most people will not be able to figure it. We may need to bridge it with another clue.

Edit* Wow! I totally read right through a clue without notice. You be sneaky.

For New Kent:

maybe continue 608 to 606 to 360 to the Pamunkey? Rounds out fairly well. Trying to draw lines now, Not going well...
