Didn't know these kind of exotic locations were within a day trip ride from Woodbridge. (at least they sound exotic) Will put that area up high on my list of places to ride. Larry

The roads around Shanghai (WV) were great, semi-paved twisties, hairpin turns alternating between forest and farms, some weren't even on my GPS. With a real dual-sport you'd have tons of fun up around there.

heres the report from the local BMW club I did

Neat report, I'll have to check it out soon.

On a more Retro note, all this banter (pressure suit and myself included) should be kept to the NOVA Sign In thread - not the NVATag

Fenced in tags...

Got it.

I figured I could walk around the gate...WRONG!


Nobody coming...climb the fence.



Dark back there. Note to self, take small flash light when tagging at night.

Tag is the former Harry Diamond research lab and Army test center. Currently home to alot of birds.

Good grab, didn't think they actually closed that gate, its been open several times I've by in the evenings. hope someone gets the cache soon, looks a bit "exposed" but covering it there would have kinda hard I imagine! Quick someone go get it!

It is bigger than it looks, you actually have to stand on the wall around it to see it.

Another clue, that is the Arlington house on the hill.

Nice Hooligan Grab!

That new tag is a good one. I bet it was nice last night out there. I always liked that area late after all the death defying traffic was gone.

Night tags seem more fun. Will try to grab one sometime soon.

The 4th Infantry Division at Fort Hood, Texas is AKA Iron Horse - That name sounds like a kind of motorcycle.

It was cooler (temperature wise) along the river too.

For the full effect --Time getting this tag so you can hear taps being played from the Tomb.
