Portsmouth City Highpoint Trip Report

From the end of I-64, take I-264 to exit 3, Victory Boulevard. Go right at the bottom of the ramp. At 2.0 miles, cross US 17. A 3.2 miles, see the obvious power plant on the left. Park in the visitors parking.

I went in and told them what I wanted to do (while I am a reasonable sized person, there were many large trash trucks whizzing about and I understand the concept of momentum). An amused gentleman escorted me out to the point in question, unaware of the significance of his terrain. I suggested that spsa.com put it on their web page. You could tell he was considering it.

As an aside, the regional power authority bought the power plant from the Navy for a dollar.
