Between 12 and 1pm -- Midway between Leesburg and Purcellville, on State Route 77.

[edit] Expedition

Arrived right on time! We went down this back road which got worse and worse, and finally an unpaved road -- VERY BUMPY. I recognized the area from the google satellite view. We got out of the car and walked through the marsh and ended up in the cornfield. I walked around with my GPS a while until I got as close as I could to the hashpoint and we put a rock there.

There was an old springhouse which was very cool (though my daughter was less impressed). It was the real thing, made of stone, sitting on a stream. Too bad it was totally collapsed or else I would have liked to go in.

Across the way was an old farmhouse with a tin roof. Not much else around. A few cars went by, which got our hopes up that we'd meet someone, but no dice. We waited the whole hour and then finally left.

As we were leaving, my daughter noticed the old "no trespassing" sign. Oops!
