Yeah, well, he needs to hurry up and post the new tag so I can do some research before I leave work.

Grab and Tag!!

All:

It's been a very hot day riding, but it was worth it. A redemption tag to make up for the Bruce I had last night!

Grab Notes:



I immediately recognized the area in the photo, and when Ali called me via AliApp and said:

"I'm very sad that you were Bruced the other day! But you know where I am, no one else has made it out here yet, so... Come and get me"

So I jumped on my Sprint and took off. Since I wanted to get there quickly, I took the short cut on the gravel portion of Kincheloe Rd. Soon I was where Ali was.

"What the heck was that noise that I heard?" asked Ali

"Ummm, I hit a low spot in the road and my lower fairing hit the ground, sorta embarrassing, I'd rather not talk about it."

So I took a few photos and decided to take the paved way back home.



What a street tire looks like after going through some gravel, see Ali inspecting it?



Ali was hot, and it was indeed a hot and humid day riding. So Ali wanted to cool down. So as I was washing the dog, I gave ali some nice cold well water.



"I had something else in mind." Said Ali.

"Like what?"

"Something cold and delicious."

"I know just the place, some good ol' ice cream treats."

So off we went to find a crowded ice cream joint.





Since I didn't want Ali found. I located a castle to the right of the establishment at the nearby miniature golf course.



Ali is just inside the corner of the fence. Just reach inside to find Ali...



Ali is under the rock.



Oh the clues. I'm going to revert to the old kid magazine "Highlights" for the way I'm going to lay out the clues;

Three words:

1) (Nap - p + than)'s
2)
3) - "code"

Happy Tagging!!!

I used to live less than a mile from there.

No Bruce!

GRAB!!!

Magic putting
8902 Mathis Ave
Manassas



TAG
(forgive the following, it was really dark and my camera is 5 years old)

So, where do you want to go, Ali??
"I am a gator, so I want to get in the water"
OK, well, where am I supposed to take you?
"My friend Ben has a park with lots of water in it. If you brought me there, I would make a big splash with the ladies. Are you down with that?"
Sure, but how do I get there?
"Follow the rd for former slaves westward to the seat of the European Parliament, once you pass through Syria. From here you will find a stately manor. Eventually you will come to the road named for my friend Ben. That's where I want to go"
OK, off we go!



Ali is behind the right leg of this sign. The grass is pretty tall, so no covering of any kind. This sign is at the entrance of this gator watering hole.

Good luck.

Hmm, what's that sign over there?


Oh, never mind . . . I didn't see this sign, I'll be on my way now.


Tag.

Nice morning for a ride. Weather was nice while moving, still a bit warm when stopped.

I know that cow. She hung out with 'Dog' for a few months.


Nice tag, but by the time I read this thread, Ali had moved on.

Leon.

Leon.
The idea was to tag Nathan's Dairy Bar, but due to the crowds and for Ali's safety I took Ali accross the parking lot to the mini-golf place. The castle pic was a fortuitous opportunity. I was just a great shot to take and turned out better than I thought it would.
