Motorcycle Wanderings, General Travel, and a Weird Mix of Other Stuff

Quest for LOVE Update

You know it’s hard to keep track of how many LOVEworks there are to visit when even the Virginia travel folks can’t pin down the exact number!

In this blog post from February, the travel folks said “more than 65.” That’s technically true, but the number is now higher than 70! I’ve physically visited and captured pics of at least 50 LOVEworks.

The two latest I saw are here…

Mineral, Virginia

It’s really hard to keep track of how many I have yet to see. Why? They keep adding more!

I’m in the process of planning (sorta) a May getaway. So I figured I’d make a list of sculptures I need to visit. There are 22! Even I was surprised at how many are on that list.

Some of them are really far away, or at least hard to get to, like the one new one near Chincoteage on Virginia’s Eastern Shore. That would either involve another trek through Maryland or a journey to Norfolk/Virginia Beach then across the bay bridge tunnel. The one in Gate City, in the far southwestern tip of Virginia, is reported to have reappeared, too.

I might see some on my upcoming adventure. Then again, I might not. This is another of those trips where the plan is NOT to plan. I’ll just head out with my maps and a general idea of direction and/or destination. I may end up on the Gulf Coast. Or I might have so much fun in the mountains that I’ll end up staying there.

It’s fun for now trying to imagine where my bike might take me.


It’s not the destination that matters.

    That one in Mineral, VA, is pretty imaginative. Maybe it’s time to add one to your front fence…

      Ha. I never thought about that. I really could make my own LOVE.

    That’s an awesome adventure to seek out the word “Love”. I’m with Richard, I love the one on the fence.

      It seemed like a good idea at the time. Then I realized just how big Virginia is! 🐸

    We need all the love we can get these days!

    Looking forward to reading about where your bike takes you!

      Me, too!

    Wow, hard to believe how many of the sculptures there are. I think it is good that they keep adding more. Good excuses to ride on the nice days when they get here.

    • March 9, 2017    

      True. Now if they’d just hurry up and get here!

    I seek out chocolate. That’s the same as love right?
