    I subscribe to the Captain Barbosa school on speed limits :D (though that particular day I was stuck behind a lot of traffic, so time was probably fairly accurate)

    I agree, but none of my bikes can keep up with yours. Especially THAT ONE!

    Nicely done! Great job capturing the sign and the cannons. Great choice for a tag, but I'll leave it alone as i have an unfair advantage (i've been inside the building in your picture)

    Looking at the other picture it doesn't look to be the same bridge.
    Square versus arched supports. I believe the billboard in the background is above 64 as it crosses the Shockoe Valley.

    Boooo! Hiss! Not supposed to give things like that away!! (though the billboard really is the defining clue, otherwise it would be hard to know since he shows the Dominion substation building, but none of the transformers or switching gear)

    Jacob - He told you it's the billboard next to 64 over Shockoe Valley. So pull out your Google Earth and get cracking! Between his comments and mine, it won't be that hard to find it :nod

    64 East, heading into downtown before it merges with 95 will get a view of the billboard.

    He knows. That is a screenshot from Google maps. He was just saying he now knows where the billboard is.

    Nice! It ain't much but it's nice to do a couple laps in the dirt when passing thru. I would like to find more

    Our next location is a spot with a great view! Head about 40 min west and you'll be in Luck if you can find this Stone quarry thats near the river. Make sure to save save some time to sit and relax on one of the benches in the background.
