didn't go into work yesterday. Now it is just a matter of desire to drive the 40 miles one way up 95 on my scoot that has me a bit concerned. LOL

Not in the DC area. On the other hand, if we were playing in Denver .... I drove a cab there for 6 years and went everywhere, urban and suburban. But here it is mostly Arlington and Alexandria, plus the places where my daughter plays soccer. Oh, and places where there is good Asian food.

Ratstar could pretty easily get this one. I thought StooterBoy was also going to try this one?

The hard part is figuring out how to get there without using the highways ... if nobody claims this one soon I will have to go get it this weekend, but then I am going to drag you all out to western Fairfax County for the next one ....

Hey! They moved the airplane!
I got to the right spot ... I could see where the airplane had been, but it was nowhere to be seen! How did you arrange that, Dragon? Ha!

Dragon, that one was 58 miles round trip for me ... my wife got the dreaded "Rider's Butt"!

The other planes still looked to be in position ... just the Duke Ellington plane was gone, or at least moved. There are apparently 50 planes out there scattered about Crystal City ... all part of the Crystal Flight series.

Tried to get a new shot this afternoon, but the location was busy so I'll have to go back ...

I'd go get it but I'm out of town until the 20th.

Some good places to eat in the area, too.

Too late, Sauter, your caboose move will have to be for another tag. This is now my longest ride to date 46 miles roundtrip. Real fun though met a friend for lunch at Anita's, hadn't been there since high school

Excellent! Great job, you really get around on that LX.

The caboose is in historic downtown Herndon, VA. There is a museum nearby, also many good restaurants (Anita's is one of them). Right on the W&OD bike trail, runs out to Purcellville.

Chug mentioned and I saw the Indian Restaurant Angeethi. It looked very interesting, my wife and I may go this weekend. Sauter thanks for the motivation to ride out there it was great, a little hairy on route 7 but fun none the less. New tag coming

40 miles round trip is a bit different than 80 round trip, LOL. Anyway I am going through withdrawl right now as I have my scoot apart for some "upgrades". Will hopefully be riding again this weekend.

This is easy
Starting in the 1930's there were 50 of these burger joints in the Baltimore/Washington area. The last one closed in 2006. The unique architecture of these places once rivaled the big blue roof of IHOP or the Pizza Hut red roof. Kinda like a mix of five guys and White castle. the burgers were tiny 1oz I believe, cooked hundred's at a time. The company slogan was "buy'em by the bag". Boy I wish I could. I think this was the eastern most shop

Maryland meet up
Excuse the friendly hijack but this thread hits the crowd near Maryland/DC. Would love to see some of you.

Federal hill is very close to the tag spot. Group tag?

We have a rare break in the weather this weekend. How about we meet at a spot for lunch Saturday around noonish. Two choices:

1. Cross Street Market in historic Federal Hill for Oysters (It is the season)
http://www.southbaltimore.com/shop/crossmkt.html

2. Olney Ale House

TAG
Thought I would jump in and start this up again and see if we can get it going. First excuse me for not having a vespa yet, but I hope to get a gts some day soon.

I'll start where the tags left off.

This used to be a Little Tavern, it's located on Washington street in Alexandria a few blocks north of King St. I drive by it all the time on my way out of Alexandria up Washington Parkway to DC.

Now it's a Asian place, this website
http://www.agilitynut.com/eateries/lt2.html helped a lot, has info on every Little Tavern building (crazy what's out there on the internet).

I will post a new tag shortly!

NEW TAG!
External inline image provided by member with no explanatory text

Sorry but all I had was my phone to take this picture.

I had to go over a small curb and park on the side walk to get this angel, but the clouds were the best on this side at the time. You might get a better/easier shot around the corner where the sign is located.

Hint: you can see it from a good distance and it's near the pentagon
