Thus, to give substance to motorcycle rides of this summer, I have decided to locate and photograph suspension bridges maintained by the VA Department of Transportation. The scheme:
- identify a suspension bridge; the Internet is indispensable with special thanks to the Bridgemeister (David Denenberg) for compiling a list with latitude and longitude data
- code the location data into the GPS -- this is important because most of the bridges are in out-of-the-way locales some not visible from nearby roads
- layout a route to said bridge biased towards secondary and scenic roads for maximum enjoyment -- the GPS facilitates route planning
- pack camera with other travel necessities
Stay tuned for my first post on 5 suspension bridges photographed during an overnighter ride on Memorial Day. An easy way to stay tuned is to point your reader (I use Google Reader) to this blog's feed.
