Call me crazy, but I'm guessing a water tower. . ..

It's colder than a wiccan's mammalia out there. My teeth have finally stopped chattering, so here's today's tag.

Ali was thirsty after all the salty pizza, so we went to find her a drink. You're looking for a place named after a place once known as Paname. As you drive through on the highway you'll come to this approach (if headed westbound, start looking for it on the right after you pass the road named after the gun that won the west):



Head up a little ways and come to this water tower (which at only 20,000 gallons, isn't quite as majestic as some of the others I've tagged):



And you'll find Ali at the base under a rock:



Happy tagging!

Are you psychic? How could you have possibly known that?

Hmmm.... Judging by the shiny paint and lack of grass around the tank, I am guessing Google satellite view won't be a whole lot of help in verifying the location.

I thought I saw AM heading east on 66, and I almost turned around. But, I kept on, figuring I had to see what water tower craziness G2K had uncovered.

So, I found an unmarked dirt road:



That pretty much went to gosh knows where:


But there was a water tower:


And a rock and stack of sticks:


Could it be? Yes, here's Ali:



Grab: Paris Road, Paris, Virginia

And we're off to the next tag!

(Though I am sad to report that it appears Ali has lost his left rear leg. The next tagger can clean or bandage as he/she sees fit).

Tag:



Hidden between the metal shielding and pvc pipe (note convenient fire extinguisher arrow in pic):


Like so:


The clue: Find the organic market that could belong to mom. Ali is nearby. But you'll have to look up, at least 7 stories. . ..

Happy Tagging!

The current location is given away by something in the background but, alas, is out of my reach tomorrow.

Yes, not unintentional. For those seeking to find Ali, please pay attention to the downward arrow. . ..
