    Is it possible to lumberjack the signs?

    This reminds me of the movie Deliverance. If you listen closely, you can hear the banjos playing in the neighborhood. Be very careful.

    Good to know that I was not the only one who messed up. At 0-dark-30 I headed westbound and didn't notice a sign for the left at the bridge to cross I-66, so I passed it even though I knew it was there somewhere. I realized I missed it about 10 feet later. Then when I crossed the bridge, I knew I should make a right and it, but didn't see a sign. It is probably there, but it wasn't obvious.

    OTOH, the new detour, east of the Citizens Bridge on the W&OD, has a lit sign. In addition, it might be least detourish of any detour I have seen.

    I received an email from the Arlington trails manager indicating that the signs should now be complete and correct.

    Please email kstalica (at) arlingtonva.us if that is not the case.

    They were fixed-ish when I went through there yesterday afternoon.

    I think that my powers only work in a negative way. This and the rain for last year's Hains Point 100. http://bikearlingtonforum.com/showth...734#post183734
    OTOH, when the end of the Custis trail is completed, it will eliminate the blind curve at the end which is good.

    I didn't look on the way back from Purcellville since I took the Metro home from East Falls Church. Hopefully I will be back within a week.

    I took bentbike's 11th/14th street detour (from when the W&OD was closed in Feb for erosion issues) and avoided all of it. That section of the trail is one big mental suck for me.

    Arlington Loop variant, so many detours, so little time.

    Where does that end up crossing I-66? Either that or can someone direct me to that thread? I do recall that thread but just gave up looking for it. I always have trouble with the organizational structure of this forum's posts.
