The west end of VA 263 in Orkney Springs has potentially the best view in the state of VA.  I did not want to leave when I was there.
I am now a PennDOT employee.  My opinions/views do not necessarily reflect the opinions/views of PennDOT.

I have (finally) split the I-381/VA-381 post into two separate posts. I also redid the existing I-381 post to make it up-to-date with me modern page standards.

(OLDER) I-381:
https://huntyroadsva.blogspot.com/2022/12/I-381.html

(NEWER) VA-381:
https://huntyroadsva.blogspot.com/2024/02/va-381.html

I will also do some more updating on existing pages to get them to my modern standards.

I have updated the following posts to my modern standards:

VA-240 (redid some wording)
US 33 (redid some wording, added some pictures)
I-264 (redid some wording, My Experiences part)
VA-22 (added My Experiences part)
VA-106 (redid all of The Route Path part to make it North-South, just like every route post on the website. I also added the My Experiences part.)

I might replace the Updates page with something different, since it's pretty useless now.
