Petersburg Battlefield
« on: March 03, 2014, 08:30:24 pm »
So the weather cleared up yesterday and I decided to go see some history out here in VA. I shot NW of VA Beach and headed to Petersburg, VA about an hour n half away.

Took some thicker roads on the way there. Got to the National Park and took the tour.



Had a blast zooming around the Park.

There's a whole lotta history out here. I learned alot. Combinding my love for dirtbikes and history puts a grin on my face.

This gun was known as "The Dictator". It shot a 225lb shell over 2 miles towards Petersburg during the 9 month long siege. Crazy stuff.
So on the way home I decided to splurge. Took backroads non-stop all the way home. VA is turning out to be not such a bad place after all.  8)

A nice winter ride!  I enjoyed the pics.  And no, the picture game has yet to have anyone participate.  It's currently: Any pic with you jumping the bike.  I'm gonna head over to that board right now and give it a bump.  I wanna get that game moving.
