    Not to worry, Ali is safe in his new spot as of half an hour ago. After his long radio silence, I passed by the spot and found the same sign that Bierfahrt showed us. Only on the way out did I spot the correct one, which it seems you found a couple hours later.

    This one shouldn't be too hard. Right off a popular commuter cut-through in Clifton, you'll pass a park with a few soccer fields. Ali found a nice shady spot in the grass at the corner of the black fence.

    Accessible by pavement from the town of Clifton, or by gravel from the famous free mulch place.

    Edit: technical difficulties in the image dept. Attachments will have to suffice.

    So funny thing is, I was exactly in the spot where I found Ali about 2hrs earlier going for a ride with a friend. On my way back, I decided to check this forum and there was Ali!

    Anyways, I have not picked Ali in a while, and I think Ali has a problem......
    Here's how I found our little gator:

    Since I was on my way home, I could not take Ali too far out, so this is your hint about general area.
    In fact, Ali is now just a couple houses down from where I live.

    Ali is at the base of this three

    Hints:
    This road is a bit more of a lane, and the name of it is a combination of "an agricultural implement consisting of many spikes, tines or discs dragged across the soil" and a hill.

    Nice going, sobeck!

    BTW, posting address in grab post appreciated. A customary practice, so inmates can tell if they solved the location correctly, maybe prevent future "dupes."

    Again, good grab!

    Hey all - been a LONG time. Like - 4-5 years long. Back in NOVA. Good to be back. Now retired from the USAF, so I'll be here a while.

    Anyway. Ali and I took a quick ride. I asked Ali where he wanted to go.

    Ali - "West. I want to go WEST!"

    So, we headed west on a "HWY" that is named after different confederate icons depending on which part of Virginia you are in.

    We got to a little OLDIE town. We had to cross a LITTLE RIVER coming in to town.

    Ali - "You spelled that wrong..."

    Me - "I know. Its a clue."

    Anyway ... We saw this amazing little dirt road. (It is VERY well groomed). After a short RACE along the road, Ali nearly lost his TAIL.

    Ali - "Hey, this road has a number. Those three digits add up to 9!"

    Me - "Yes Ali, you can add. You getting tired Ali?"

    Ali - "Yep, leave me at this Farm on the Mount. Perhaps I'll get lucky and eat a cow."

    Me - "What farm? ... ... ... Bueller? Bueller?"

    So Ali is tucked away safe and sound.

    Here's some photographic help:

    A quick aside if you will
    Now that Photobucket is no longer KLR friendly, can anyone recommend a free photo hosting service? Needs to have an app to use on an Android phone

    I am using imgur now. It is pretty easy. Has an apple app - so should definitely have an android app.

    Like it better than photobucket

    Also, if you use the Tapatalk app to browse forums, you can simply add the images and it magically works. The only downside is it adds all the images after the text, so it's hard to label images.

    Begging pardon of all inmates, a test. Trying out a scheme to break the surly bonds of Photobucket's unfair restrictions:

    If an image appears above, the scheme seems effective!
