Tag.

I had just gotten my bike back from getting new tires, brakes, plugs, etc.. so I knew Ali wanted to go for a ride. So I headed off to get Ali, and Ali (to my surprise) was still there! Ali and I said the best way to start an adventure is to just ride. So ride we did, and lost we did, and have fun we did. We conferenced in the wife on Ali app so we could all have a great conversation and center ourselves on the wonderful roads that we found and rode upon. A couple of times we inadvertently ended up where we began. But that was the fun in getting lost. Eventually we stumbled upon a nice little black gate that was in a really neat area with beautiful stone walls and various places for people to gather. Ali and I decided that was a perfect place to rest.

So...

Little black gate, just before the ACC.



Looking SE towards the ACC Entrance.


Looking NW.


Here is Ali.


Another picture of Ali.


Under the rock.


Another gate picture.


Clues:

Famous Basket Ball Player - His _ _ _ness
What Pinocchio did to make his nose grow

Combine the two for the first word in ACC and the name of the road.

Bugs are bad here.

In the quote below, first you're looking NW, then SW. But, the road looks straight. Are we at an intersection, is this some strange clue about "Go west, young man" or is there an error in the directions.?

Not having a lot of luck on this one . . . yet.

Welcome. The virtues of one or two up are now well known. . ..

I'm guessing Beast Rider knows exactly where this is.

I can't comment on that... But if one does their research...

"Man Who Stares At Goats"

Not unlike a "remote viewing" parapsychology subject in the movie, "Men Who Stare At Goats," I somehow knew immediately where Ali now rests, independent of text clues or any recognition of images (more later, should I grab him).

No additional or supplemental clues in the following remarks: Frankie Laine's, "Cry of the Wild Goose," and a famous National Geographic experiment come to mind in the location solution . . .

Time and opportunity to grab the gator may be in short supply for me. Hey, Ali's now fair game (absent any pre-emptive Brucing); go get 'im!

We all suffer from confusion. Just look at some of the clues that NovaRider leaves. Some of his tags will make your head spin (I took lessons from him on how to leave clues - he just doesn't know it yet)

Yes, I must have just beat Flushlorton to Grove's General Store. But, as of this moment, Ali is still sitting nice and secure in the new tag spot... Go for it!!
