SPY vs SPY

"where to?" asked Ali.
Not too far, I need to get my passenger home. How about I drop you off in this relaxing little park, not quite a hill, despite the name.
"sure. its nice, with picnic tables and a grill. i can cook up something that I catch in the nearby stream".
OK, well I will stash you up in the rafters of the sign so you can stalk some prey. if you listen carefully you will hear stories about the Cold War









Ali is stashed on the back of the wooden sign thingie.

Welcome,

Basically, we chase an alligator around Northern Virginia. Don't try to explain this in polite conversation. They won't get it. There's a map of the boundaries that some inmates have linked in their posts.

Find Ali the alligator (the grab), take a pic with your bike in it, hide the alligator (the tag), get a pic with your bike in it, post up the "grab" and the "tag" with clues (can be textual, photographic, some inmates have even tried puzzles (but then I deploy test kid, an entirely other story), and watch and see which player finds Ali.

And the cycle repeats.

First post has general rules, but flip back a few pages, you'll get the gist.

I'll be in, just as soon as I get back from 3 year's in Naples, Italy. Meaning I'm coming back after 3 years…sorry for the confusion.

Outstanding! Looks like we're about to lose a major player overseas for a few months, so again, welcome! The more the merrier (especially when I can figure out their tag clues).

perhaps another clue:

a president who was shot in 1963 can lead you to this park

The UnBruce

Grab: Park/Parking Area off of Kennedy Road or Finch Road, Warrenton, Va (just south of Vint Hill Road)

I arrived to a Bruce. Not entirely unexpected, as I took my time and got lost in the area. Snapped a pic anyway . .




And then looked down. Seems Ali had taken a dive.




Glad to be rescued, we were off to the next tag, which might have been to the tip of mount eccentric, had it not been a dupe. . ..

Tag:



The hide:
Base of tree, just outside corner fence post, marked by "A", like so:


Looking left:


Looking right:


Opposite from tag:


The clue:

.9 miles from here (in a southwest direction):


As I hinted, to come from the west would have crossed Mount Eccentric, and a dupe.

Happy Tagging!

Because it is a great day to ride, here's a bonus clue: the gravel road on which Ali hides connects two highways, one whose numbers total "8", the other whose numbers total "10". The clue pic is from the "10" side.

Happy Tagging!

TAG:
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



Happy tagging

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