    Default North-north Arlington

    Who here is based in or very familiar with the wilds of north-north Arlington? We're talking north of Lee, west of Old Dominion. Bonus points if you're a cool kid who uses the Chain Bridge and bikes to places like Lee-Harrison, Westover, schools, etc.

    Although I don't live in the "wilds," I'm pretty familiar with a lot of it. Why?
    I'm not a kid and I'm definitely not cool, though.

    (Westover is not north of Lee, and Chain Bridge is not west of Old Dominion)

    I think several of us live in that area. I never thought of it as all that wild. :-) I'm pretty familiar with the main roads, though I admit that my nap-time rides, while typically in this area (and McLean) tend to use the same roads on repeat. (I don't think there are that many kids on the forum?)

    I live there and bike around there. Not a cool kid though.

    Live in Westover, commute north up into Fairfax (on Westmoreland or Powhatan)...regularly walk/bike to Lee-Harrison in the warmer months.

    I think any place that has District Taco probably doesn't count as "the wilds."

    Some of our Arlington friends here consider anything west or north of the neighborhood they've chose to live in to be the wilds. Rcannon100, for instance, thinks there be dragons west of Old Dominion.

    As someone pointed out, I live south and est of Old Dominion, so I don't even think about the fact that it bends. If it helps, NW of the (western) intersection of Lee and Old Dominion. :-)

    I always bring my bear repellent whenever I cross the Potomac.

    On real quiet nights, I let the banjos serenade me to sleep.
