Everyone will be pleased to know that Ali is alive and well. S/he was hanging out at an abandoned convenience store on Rt15, near Aldi called One Stop Food Store. Address on building is 24021 (whatever the actual name of rt15 at this point is) may be a dupe?





Next tag's placement will shock you all

This tag will test your Google-foo, or if you read the same comic books as me when I was a kid, you will get the clue easily.
Ali was glad to be rescued from the abandoned shop after weathering the big storm. Having laid low for awhile, s/he felt lazy and wanted some exersize. How about tennis? Sure/why not.
So, Ali is hanging out at the park named for the Civil War general whose ghost can only be seen by the commander of the WW2 Haunted Tank. The man who said: "give me liberty or give me death" can guide you there.

Ali looking at the courts:

Hidden at the base of this sign, under leaves and such




That last one should give a good indication of where the sign is

Nice!

Hey Elkhound, What is the prize for the 1000 grab?
The winner gets to set a tag?

Seriously? This was too easy?? I referenced a comic book from the 70s! Oh well, someone needs to get Ali fast before some kid finds him/her

I think Ali wants to go make music at the Greasy King - wherever that is.

I didn't use the comic book reference, but with the one I did use, the answer came right up!
I also double checked with street view.

I've made clues before that I thought would take awhile to figure out but didn't. I've also made them, what I thought was fairly...no, REAL easy, and had people bitching about the "difficult" clues.

For instance, take the last couple pages of the VA tag.

Not really.

Tag:


A peek at what the place is named for:


Ali resting:


Ali hiding, under leaves, marked by an "A":


For orientation:



The clue:

Ali was miffed. "Where's the water guy? I'm a aquatic gator!" "Sorry, he's not here and the water reference won't help, this time you're dealing with a land lubber," I replied. "How 'bout we run over to a place like that Jiffy Lube concert spot you rested at some time back -- you know, the one that used to be called Nissan Pavillion?" Ali was ok with that, so we did. This is a true RLD tag, one that Columbus could easily find, especially if he looked north, and most certainly by his 2nd attempt.

Caveat:
Sloped parking lot and wet leaves dictate caution on this grab.

Happy Tagging!

Good tagging NoVa Rider! Now #996.

For a good while, Ali went missing at Aldie Dam. Meanwhile Cody was put in
play by SillyGoose. Cody's name came from this song:

Hmmm, could be slowing as the weather cools, but at least 2 riders have decoded. Are additional clues required?
