Found it

Clue - if you search for the name of the road on Wikipedia the name of the chapel in the photo shares the name with the church that appears at the top of the web page.


Found it, now I just need to find the time!

Grab

Grab on Paddock Wood Road, Rt 686 in Albemarle County at Saint Andrews Chapel. I ran up to Morton's BMW today and the grab and tag were on the way. (first clue.)




Continuing towards Morton's, the tag is on a road that shares it's name with the American revolutionary war hero whose portrait appears on the $10.00 bill. It is under a rock at the east end of a small one-lane bridge where the road crosses over a stream that shares it's name with a famous Canadian "Bay" and trading company founded by a 17th century English explorer. It lies within the G______ Springs National Historic Landmark District. The three digits of the road number add up to 20.











With all the rain we have had lately better get there quick before high water floods the bridge and washes the dingus away.

We picked up the tag on Hamilton Road over Hudson Creek.





Stopped off at Slice for some pizza and to decide were to put the little thing.

So it was off to this place....


(I think it has been on this road before) I hadn't been on it, so it was fun checking it out...even 2-up.

Tag is here.....


Last post in the fence line.....


It was cool riding through there 2-up. Did the ford, too.
It's one of the few fords in Albemarle county.

Grab: Buck Mountain Ford Rt. 776 near Free Union. Ford is a bit deeper than earlier in the spring, it's amazing how water can splash up that little space between your riding pants and boot and get your sock wet isn't it?


Tag: Also on a road tagged a few times before. Name starts with "S" Mill Rd. Road# adds up to 21. Dingus is behind the post that the warning sign is attached to, next to the lone daylilly.

I think you grabbed/tagged the bridge at the other end of the road. FoxedupOne tagged a memorial site that's just out of sight in the background of my last pic.

Tag

It was getting late, and dark, so this one is pretty close to home, again.

Do the pictures give you enough clues?







Little guy is at the base of the stop sign.

Yeah, I recognize it. Road name has something to do with "8".
I won't be getting it today though.

Grab. Octavia Road.



After dropping the tag because I left it on the back of my bike and having to go back for it, we finally placed the tag.

Tag on a road with the name of a country singer who has friends in low places. Ask me for clues if the pictures aren't enough. There is a jog in this road that I didn't know about until today and after studying the map a little more tonight, there are two roads with the same name in the area! This road is the smaller of the two.



At the base of the sign behind my new bike! Doesn't that orange look good? :-)
