Somewhat stiff from a night in the damp, lush vegetation of Gulf Branch Nature Center, Ali wanted some exercise. He was delighted with the opportunity to visit a RECREATION CENTER; this one commemorating an Audrey, but no Hepburn. He looked forward to the handball (he calls them, "tailball") courts, and especially the well-stocked swimming pool:



Then we went to the actual resting place; Ali asked, "Did you ever wake up, in a field, where you never dreamed you might park your car?"

"Well, Ali; truth be told, I might have stumbled into the dorm, somewhat unsure where I might have parked my car; but--those occasions were SELDOM."







CAVEAT: Tag at least a neo-dupe, but . . . an early and accessible one!

Great grab, XDrag! I was surprised to find the Gulf Branch Nature Center in Arlington -- a step back in time with a log house and a forge.

For the tag map, the Fort Ethan Allen tag (No. 273) should appear about a mile to the northwest, street address 3829 North Stafford Street, Arlington, Virginia 22207.

Probably the third or forth tag at Wakefield-each one of them a different feature or location within the park. Well tagged!

Yes; as previously stated:

Wakefield Park may approach the notoriety of Furnace Road!

My ambition encouraged a tag somewhat distant, but I chose to offer a timely window, albeit duplicative and within the RLD, for early and accessible general participation.

When the time is right, and the stars favorably aligned, I shall make that tag; an ideal one for you and your escuderia (squadron) of formidable motorcycles!

Pre Hurricane Tag!

Ali was pretty hungry by the time I got there. Hungry gators are not to be messed with. I knew the one stop I could make so Ali could get a snack. That is, if the dooms day hurricane folks haven't already cleaned out the store!



Ali is at the base of the tall sign, right under the electrical junction box.




The weather is still nice, happy tagging!

Aw hell! Another dupe from early on! I need to find tags BEFORE going out and not rely on my phone.
Clue anyway:
Speaking of food, this is near where General Braddock might have eaten some good ol Carolina BBQ. Well, that is if they were doing BBQ that long ago.
