    Ali and I had a nice long ride! So ling, in fact, that the gator asked where we were going. When I told him where, he lit up "WOW! I've never been to the Prime Meridian!!!"
    I hated to break the news that this little place simply shared a name with a town along the Prime. Alas, you may find a slightly grumpy gator at the tag site.

    Inside the circle of brick, you will find Ali nestled under the pea gravel beneath this marker:

    And marked with a random fence post top

    Hmmm, I think I will go out for dinner. In the meantime, I'll try to count how many dupes are at one spot :rofl

    In your defense, the map is off about a block. I did the same thing


    Don't worry. I'll fix it in about 30 minutes or so

    This is a great tag, but the map is off.

    So, I guess the answer is, how many sides does a circle have? :rofl :rofl :rofl

    Ok, as long as I am not losing my mind! I have been known to make a tag without checking the map. Once in a while :hide

    "So, are you taking me someplace to get dinner?? I'm hungry!"

    Sorry Ali, its almost 9, all the places I like are about to close.

    "Well that sucks. Maybe I can catch a stray cat... Oh, I understand you need to buy some new clothes. I can help you pick something out."

    OK, well, I'll just drop you here for the night since I don't want you snacking on my cat and maybe you can help me find some shoes. Perhaps in the morning, you might be lucky enough to grab a chicken biscuit.

    Subtract 2 from 30 and you will be right on target. that would be super

    Our drowned and very dirty alligator has been found moved to a more peaceful setting out in horse country close to everyone's favorite BBQ joint

    Well first spot that I had intended to drop by looked rather ominous due to the high water at the damn so decided to travel further down the same road for a better spot to drop

    Came to the following spot
    [​IMG]

    The road sign that is just out of view is named after NY's third most populous city based on the census of 2010. Interestingly the city was also named the "most livable city" among 379 cities in 25th edition of "Places Rated Almanac"
    [​IMG]

    If you park in that same spot there will be a log just in front of you to your right where you will find a likely very wet Ali

    Now you see him

    Now you don't

    Nice grab.

    The ride to an afternoon Bruce? Most enjoyable. :thumb

    The Bruce? Not so much. :cry

    Getting pelted by rain drops the size of softballs on the return? Priceless. :rofl

    Waterlogged Ali was not pleased at getting soaked.
    Well, how about I make it up to you with lunch??
    "Great! but no chicken. I would like some seafood"
    I know some dude named Joe who sells Crab. its not much of a place, just a shack really, but the food is good.
    "OK, lets roll"
