New Tag 6-23-2010

my first tag...so here i go….

i may be Wrong or RIGHT about this illegal border, depends on your point of view. (i think i am right and so did some others long ago) dewey is near this lake which has no historical significance, but it is owned by a old winchester furniture company (_______ _______) ceo the business has been around since 1946, not sure if many people know where he lives or cares -- i don’t -- but he needs to spend some of the 24 carat GOLD he has to get the fountain working again (see satellite pic). a bit of warning don’t trespass and go for a swim or you may go to jail. And remember to smile and wave, because you may have your picture taken by the land baron.



satellite view…. white dot is fountain when it was working



the way to this grab is gravel but not too bad maybe a little dusty but you will still be tempted to FLY down the road and no need to stop and REST on any of the roads. the road number where dewey is hiding added together equal 13.

The now scummy lake is in the back ground next to a yellow house which btw is not the ceo's house his a log lodge looking thing on top of the hill...


dewey hiding at this post which is also due to in part a bogus holiday that was celebrated by some people monday. post over the seat...

money shots:
see dewey below ---


dewey now covered for bed...

hope not too many pics and enough clues...so let me know....

Nice tag.

You're passionate about this "illegal border" eh? I see it's mentioned in your profile as well.
In any event the cellebrations of last week were, as far as I could tell, a non-event.

I'm googling but not finding much. Maybe when I get home I'll use Google Earth to see if I can find that lake. How old is that picture though since you say it shows the fountain when it was working but that it's not anymore.

hmmmm

ETA: found the name of the business and CEO. Now looking for the lake.

maybe a little... the holiday was recognized by a certain state agency that is a pain to go to (they were closed)... tag not moved that far...didnt have the time.. was moved less than 30 miles from the last one. that should help.... and a ROAD map will too.

the fountain was working last year... and the google pic was download yesterday...just looked the lake does not stick out unless you zoom in... so probably was not the best clue. Stick to a ROAD MAP...

More Clues

Sorry my clues may be a little vague.... Tag moved less than 30 miles.

The lake picture does not help unless zoomed in on google.

Roads numbers to it:
2 digit road one adds up to 9 or 2 depending how you go.
3 digit road two adds up to 21
3 digit road three adds up to 13

I didn't have time to work on this yesterday.
If I can figure it out I'm going for the grab this afternoon.

Well now it all makes sense. You did good, I/we just didn't quite pick up on the clues.

Grab on Wright Road near Clearbrook, VA


The fountain was working today....

Considering the heat I thought it would be nice to find some water, a place for ducks.
A quick google maps search on the iphone for a pond and we were on our way.

This is what we found.


No water here. Decieving.


It was getting late so the duck played chicken and roosted in a tree. Go to the power pole and look left into the tree.
