Yeah his use of excessive whining for new clues and technology was impressive.

Looks like we won't be the only bikes out at night. Gramps did a nice job coaching him.

Oh wow. I got it right, but I decided to sleep instead. I guess I'm not hard core enough for this game.

Great Hints - NOT

Three times the middle gives you the ends.

This is just south of a well beaten path to a lovely place. (here's a local hint) If you're like me, you crank it hard left, then easier right, cross the river then jump the tracks, and always blow by this turn.

The river could use four in hand.



Thought about keeping it local, if I can do it after work, so can you.
Wow! Even after seeing the tag I still don't see how the hints play in?? Four in hand? Tye River??

You dudes better hope I never get a tag! Because my hints will be like: " If you take the square root of your age, multiply by 3.3 the answer will not be the route number" or " Two motorcycles leave the same city going in almost the same direction at to different times, what day is it?"

Four in hand made it really easy.

If you just Google that, you'll get hits back that it's a way to tie a necktie if you didn't already know that.

You've still got to know a bit about Virginia to play the game. But the Tye River is well known.

Mathematically, there can only be three 3 digit routes where the 1st and last digits are the same, and are triple the digit in the middle.

313, 626, and 939.

I thought the original clues were good...got you in the area and then you would have to ride 626 until you found the bridge. Fun road, worth the ride.

you know how many bridges in the state have that style?

The 626 I could not make out. Looked to me like 932 or something.

I think night photos need to be better than that, but I'd personally accept this one.

Norwood is definitely the place.. It works for me, let the game move forward.
