That was quick!

Amazing twisty "rural" roads in the heart of the suburban RLD. Lotsa 10 and 15 mph corners . . . followed by lotsa driveways . . .

The clue. Ali wanted to go to the lakes. I didn't think that was fair, so we road in a circle. We then came to a parkway, and a child playing with a dog. Ali thought it would be good to get out there. So he did. But it wasn't his friend Jared, it was a girl. Ali was disappointed. However, lightning being what it was, I wasn't hanging about. So Ali stayed. I hope he had fun, and that it didn't turn out to be a shocking experience.

This tag is literally park bike, place Ali, snap, snap, cover Ali, snap and get out of there. The tag location is an intersection of two larger roads, so feel free to park on the sidewalk, so long as the authorities don't mind. Just tell them Ali sent you . . ..

Happy Tagging!

With a few of those corners unmarked. . . .

Nice tag. I especially enjoyed the off camber parking. . .. Good times with the GSA.

Perhaps, but as far as I can tell, a new tag.

Bruced by the XD . . . !!

Stardate 1550, 2 Aug YOOL 2012 . . . .

Pull up to the corner of Fair Oaks Parkway and Fair Lakes Circle, dodging traffic and riding on the sidewalk like a hooligan, I spot a cute but rather two-dimensional young lady playing frisbie with a pooch of similar build . . .





There's something here . . . .



Only rocks! Our beloved gator is stolen by another hooligan inmate!



(Hope you didn't get arrested there, XD, parking on the sidewalk and all that).

Upon leaving Chantilly, Ali said, "Understand the US economy is in the dumps, today. Got anything inspiring, related to a go-getter, a captain of industry; someone who built a business and created jobs?"

"Why yes, indeed, Ali," I said. "We'll go to a site associated with an American industrialist named Henry, who built and marketed an automobile named for him!"

Ali asked, "Henry Ford?"

"No, NOT Henry FORD," I replied. "This man did lots of other things, besides manufacture and sell cars (one model named, the "Dragon," you might be interested in that buggy). He taught "Rosie the Riveter" to become, "Rosie the Welder." His products contributed to the LIBERTY of peoples enslaved by the Axis Powers (Germany, Japan, and Italy) in World War II; and consolidated the Allied VICTORY."

When we reached the tag site, Ali read the entrance sign and said, "Doesn't seem to be anything temporary, or temporaranente about this place!"

"No indeed," I said. "Consider it permanent, or, permanente, if you prefer!"

Tag: Near a non-descript, brick-and-steel building:



And, nearer still to an ornate entrance sign announcing this, "Center:"





The gator slithers on the ground, toward his resting place under the white and the red flowers:



Follow the stick, and you'l find Ali:



Street address of this center is "5999" as shown, but . . . nothing obviously common about the street, as far as Ali and I could tell.

Neat tag! Enjoyed the embedded clues, which with a bit of google fu, revealed the flower bed in which Ali hid.

Another centered, down to earth, some might even say elementary tag to follow. . ..

May Peace Prevail on Earth

You'll find Ali hidden in detrius marked by a pine cone, as seen in the below pics:





From the bike:


Looking left:


Looking right:


In addition to the preview clue in the grab, use your google fu to find a nearby school where one might study the earth's centre, that quite interestingly has a roof that looks like a playground in satellite view (because it is). . ..

Happy Tagging!
