Ali was under the mulch, marked by the rock; NE quadrant of the westernmost signpost standard:



If Ali's been gator-napped, FBI spy Hanssen and his handlers could never have pulled off a dead-drop on this guy!

I expect a grab image, and an intriguing tag picture!

I'm going mountain biking there tomorrow a.m. I can check if nobody lays claim to the grab. I won't be on my motorcycle, so it will be recon only.

Tag

So I ask "Ali where should we head off too?"

Ali replies with the typical smile "Another park somewhere west of these parts. I've enjoyed my stay but would like something a little more quite."

I reply "Hmm, let me think about that for a moment. I've got it! A place of historical significance, westward bound and quite for the most part."

After errand after errand and a number of miles south and west we have reached this quite little park next to a cow pasture well west of the last location.



"Ali is this kinda what you were looking for? I'm sure that this is a dupe but who cares great spot and was the birthplace of our country's longest serving Chief of Justice."

Ali replies "This site will do just fine. The aroma of the cow pasture in the field near by is a bit foul but hopefully someone will come save me soon!"

Ali atop of the helmet at new location:



X marks the spot where Ali is hiding out:



Now you see 'em



Now you don't (kinda tail is still showing)

Assisting the cartographer, previous tag was indeed, Fountainhead Regional Park, 10875 Hampton Road Fairfax Station, VA 22039.

(Street address useful for accurately marking the Northern Virginia Tag-o-rama map at http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&sour...6,2.471924&z=9, good grab, mow0709!)

Pleasure to meet you Mr. Ali! Found at: Justice Marshall Birthplace Park, Germantown Road, Midland, VA

How about a little ride before your next destination?

"Absolutely!" said Ali, "and you can tell me a little about yourself along the way..." Sounds good to me!

Welcome to Tag-o-rama, Jthewood!

CUSTOMARILY, the grabber posts the location of the grab; Street address useful for accurately marking the Northern Virginia Tag-o-rama map at http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&sour...6,2.471924&z=9
The map is useful for pre-selecting tag locations; one can ENLARGE the prospective tag area and determine whether it's been tagged before.

Also, "Inquiring minds want to know" where the tag/grab location was, in case they were unable to decipher the clues.

You may wish to edit your grab post, adding something like, "Justice Marshall Birthplace Park, Germantown Road, Midland, VA."

Regardless, good grab! (Early new tag appreciated.)

After an invigorating ride through the Va countryside, Ali's battery's were recharged and he was high on life. He wanted to keep on riding into Manassas but, on SECOND thought, he decided the "first" park we could "drive" to would be a good place to rest.


Ali found a nice tree to squeeze under and went fast to sleep.


Happy hunting!
