With the cash Alli picked up working at the quarry and the trip to the golf course, he wanted to buy a book to learn the game. I just "had" to take him to the book store. Being as impatient as ever, the little guy couldn't wait to read up. He wanted a little peace and quiet but needed plenty of light to read by. We spun around a bit looking for a place and came across the perfect place where the lights are always on but no one is around!
Tag:
If your travels take you on I66 east, this sign can be seen on your right side.



Now I wouldnt advise stopping on the interstate since you can access this sign just off another road. The road is paved but where you will need to park is not. My crappy pic of the bike and Alli where I parked:


Alli is curled up at the base of the sign right next to the post that is nearest to where you can park. There is a metal box on the post at about head height.




He is a quick reader so he will probably get bored soon and want a new adventure!

Grabbed, Groveton Road at Balls Ford Road, Manassas, VA:



Doubt NOVEC gets their money's worth from their advertising budget with this sign; almost didn't see it when I was LOOKING for it!

Ali rests on cross-board on sign pole:



Indeed, the parking lot isn't paved:



Signboard looks like this, from the rear; I-66 in background:



Ali found some animal tracks in the mud, saying, "Let's wait a while here. I think LUNCH will be served, presently!"

Tag; We heard, over the loudspeaker, "Mr. Simpson and party; please report to the clubhouse for your tee time."







Note tiny jaws, barely visible under metal ring at base of flagpole:



Ali wiped all four feet on this doormat:

Hey XDrag,
were you wearing an orange reflective vest on your KLR today?? I saw a KLR while driving my Vanagon with trailer full of brush to the dump. I believe it was on Balls Ford that I saw the bike.

Cannot deny; no alibi!

Traffic control at the road work area.

If Homer Simpson lived in THIS Springfield, NoVa Rider, he'd probably be a member!

Nice grab!

Springfield Golf and Country Club, 8301 Old Keene Mill Road, Springfield, VA 22152

Glad you got him, geoff2k; was afraid the flag-raiser might have discovered him in the morning!

It was a dark and spooky night...

After Ali's recuse from the golf course ("What did I do to deserve all these polo shirts?", she was heard to mumble), she decided to go somewhere that a veep might get a ticker replacement, located on a road named after the wooden frame used for capital punishment.

Once you have found the campus, head to the base of this structure:




Ali is buried in a bit of mulch at the base of the tree nearest the fence:



The view to the right of the bike:



The view behind the bike:



Happy tagging!

Happy to be back! While the left coast suits me weather-wise, two weeks without riding was cramping my style...

I can't resist a tag that is that close. Some of the country club members came to the window to scowl at the motorcyclist who was temporarily trespassing on their turf, but the grab otherwise went without incident.
