Your captions in the comments and winners (free PoP t-shirts) picked Friday. If you find a caption particularly funny be sure to let me know in the comments so I can select a reader pick too.

Ed. Note: I’m out of small and medium shirt sizes at the moment but will be making a reorder soon!

    Highway 66, renamed Virginia’s “Colonial Highway” — where you experience traveling like a settler as you navigate 75 scenic miles from Strasburg to Washington, DC in just under 4 hours. Enjoy!

    The Road Not Taken

    Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
    And sorry I could not travel both
    And be one traveler, long I stood
    And looked down one as far as I could
    To where it bent in the undergrowth;

    Then took the other, as just as fair,
    And having perhaps the better claim,
    Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
    Though as for that the passing there
    Had worn them really about the same,

    And both that morning equally lay
    In leaves no step had trodden black.
    Oh, I kept the first for another day!
    Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
    I doubted if I should ever come back.

    I shall be telling this with a sigh
    Somewhere ages and ages hence:
    Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
    I took the one less traveled by,
    And that has made all the difference.

    When going through hell, keep going.

    Stephen’s agent convinced him that Virginia named a town after him, so he purchased a 2,000 sf rambler there. But damn, the commute to Navy Yard sucks. And no one will come out there to party with him after games.

    Hey Cheney, there’s a 6 missing from the sign pointing to your lair– I mean house.

    This debate about the boundaries of PoPville has gone to far.

    Clark, are you sure this is the way to Walley World?

    The roads to nowhere I want to go.

  • Where people go when they don’t want noisy streets, bike lanes, and dog poop in their trash cans.

    This photo was taken at the height of rush hour traffic the day after Wonder Woman’s new car company sold out of their inventory.

    We’re actually The District of Columbia, not Washington.

    On second thought, let’s not go to Washington. ‘Tis a silly place.

    No, really. You have to try this new bar. It’s a little bit of a trek, but it has tons of outdoor seating, $2 PBR cans, and the best grilled cheese in town.

    I nodded off to a blissful, trafficless dream only to awake and slam on the breaks to avoid the gridlock before me.

  • TG

    Yea, though I walk through the Shenandoah valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me, and thou art the only one with me because this is way the f*ck out here.

    But 81 north is to the left



    No left!

    This way to the land of Jesus. Oh, wait, no, this way.

    Seriously, parking around U Street has gotten ridiculous. At this point I REALLY think it would’ve been quicker to just take a cab.

  • CST13

    I told you that UberX drivers never know where they’re going! This is no where close to Columbia Heights!

    Is it just me or is there something I’m not seeing in this photo?
    Usually there’s something funny or quirky about the pictures posted for the Caption Contest.

    Blue Ridge Mountains
    Shenandoah River –
    Life is old there
    Older than the trees
    Younger than the mountains
    Growin’ like a breeze

    Country Roads, take me home
