    if anyone is interested, i'm planning to take my son out to see the replica of the Godspeed sailing up the James to Henricus and can post some pics. i plan to take off out of deep bottom and cross paths with the ship before it reaches the 295 bridge. i think it would be a nightmare to launch from Dutch Gap.

    i know, nothing at all about OC, but it is a part of history - 400 years now!

    here's the link to the RTD article:

    That was very cool of you, I'll bet he remembers it for a very long time! When my daughters were young I took them to see the Mayflower II in Plymouth, Mass.

    I LOVE history and the reason America is in such a mess today is that we've forgotten history and are condemned to repeat it. Sadly, the Second American Revolution will be much worse than the first.
