    Default FS2021 Point Prize #DCBoundaryStones

    Taking the liberty of starting this thread for Char Miller’s prize since it seems to be a winner, and beginning to clog up the general info PP thread.

    Default FS2021 Point Prize #DCBoundaryStones

    Here is a good intro to everything that you need to know about finding DC boundary stones, which used to be an annual ride, first announced on this forum back in 2015 and organized by DC Boundary Stones, with great info links in the announcement below. The ride has lately been adopted by Gearing Up Bike Coop & Phoenix Bikes, among others, for late April until Covid-19 hit and the 2020 Ride was canceled.

    It’s a metric century (100 km / 62 mile) ride if you do it all in one go, with lots of stop & go, and hills, FYI

    Happy DC boundary stone hunting as some of them are well hidden, missing, or even buried 6 feet under landfill!

    #DCboundary stone #1 South (together w/ @HokieBeth)

    And in the beginning there was the first “south” boundary stone - at what is now Jones Point Park

    Also, the boundarystones.org website is a good resource:

    #DCboundary stone 9 SW

    Not a cornerstone, but an intermediate stone along the old boundary line in Benjamin Banneker Park

    Looks like two of us stopped by SW9 #DCBoundaryStone today at the border between Arlington County and City of Falls Church.

    A bunch of us Marylanders biked down into VA this morning to see the southern stone. We rewarded ourselves with croissants. Click image for larger version.
