Has he posted here recently? I'd put money on him knowing where it is!

PM sent to tagger TH at 11:49 p.m. yesterday:

Airlie Conference Center
Don't know HOW I knew this; somehow, I just KNEW!

Not kidding; only rode past the place one time in my life, several years ago; NOTHING in the images seemed familiar, I didn't recognize any feature . . . and I didn't get the text clues, 'til AFTER I determined it was Airlie . . .

WEIRD!

A verse from Frankie Laine's, "Cry of the Wild Goose:"

Quote:
My heart knows what the wild goose knows,
I must go where the wild goose goes.
Wild goose, brother goose, which is best?
A wanderin' fool or a heart at rest?
I DID go where the wild goose goes; in 1993, National Geographic imprinted a gaggle of goslings with an ultra-light aircraft as their "mother," these geese followed the aircraft from Canada to Airlie.

That darned Nova character, always "brucing" good motorcycle folks.

So NovaRider - Where is Ali?

Now that Ali has been "Grabbed" - The Beast Rider reference is due to the fact that Beast Rider had two Tags on this very same road (different locations though) in the past.

Enjoyed this tag -- TH finds all the places I've never been. Plus, once you got there, it took a bit to locate, because, well, sections of stone walls look alike. . .. But I rode far enough to find the fence, and, voila', a gator hiding, just as described (I'm glad I've gone to bringing pictures, helps the locate, and facilitates "NoVa Notes"):



The bike pic:


The where to go pic:


Tag to follow. This one will be easy.

The tag:


You'll find Ali at the base of the inside corner, covered by grass and marked with red leaf like so:


Looking left:


Looking right:


Looking inward:


And one last reference pic:


The clue:

Ali was tired, and wanted a rest. Where to find a bed so early in the day? I did my best to oblige Ali. I thought I had it, but then remembered that XDrag had already grabbed from this spot or one very nearby:


So, out of loyalty to the game, we milled about for a bit, and saw some neat fencing:


And then hid Ali where pictured in the tag shots above.
If the name of the lane isn't obvious from my post, check post 6268. You'll love it!

Google Streets will be your friend. Happy tagging!

(Standard Disclaimer: note road condition -- this tag is very KLR and SB12 friendly).

Doh! We also had a gator napping on that road were Ms. Beast Rider went and saved Ali. I thought maybe he had posted sometime recently.

No guesses. One attempt. Not sure if SB12 tried last night or not. Is another clue needed?
