No smart phone needed with a mascot in the game. I went old school myself today.

Outstanding grab, and yes, it was a bit windy. . ..

I was trundling home trying not to sail away when I saw neon yellow helmet in opposing traffic (I do the hi-viz thing too, but that rider's helmet stood out!). Then I saw the y/b 'stich, then the grey GS with bags, and a rider with a shock that jacked the bike up. . .. We nodded, and then it occurred to me why yes, I do believe I spotted ORexpat! Which is incredibly coincidental, because last evening Geoff2k turned in front of me as I was on pick up a kid duty. Recognized both from tag pics. Wish I was this good at my day job. . ..

Of course, knowing that Boatman had just made a grab and probably posted the tag, I hustled to the 'casa to see if ORex was out for the grab . . ..

You did indeed see me yesterday, avoiding traffic on the freeway . . . . I was wondering who that might be as we nodded to each other.

The GS isn't jacked up in the rear. The stock shocks were worn out by 35K miles, so bought a set of Ohlin's on Blooch's group buy. It's now back to stock height . . . . although I do worry some about hypoxia . . .

Guess we share a high-viz gene, or somethin' like that . . . The helmet's new though.

Grab Aden Rd at Leeta Cornus Ln just north of MCB Quantico.





Tag: Old Delaney Rd near Hoadly Rd. . . . .

Well, at least that's where it would be if Old Delaney Rd still existed and Hoadly hadn't been moved. The tag site is about 500 ft from the historic intersection, but only 250 ft from where my bike is parked.

The money shot:


Ali uncovered.


Covered up and from a few feet back


Some additional views at the tag location.

The other side of Old Delaney


Looking back toward Hoadly and my bike.


Another dirt road completely gone

Grab, Davis/Dewey/Lynn Cemetery, near Minnieville/Smoketown Roads intersection (behind Lowe's); Woodbridge, VA:



Tag, near this Historical Marker:



"A more recent historical event, Ali; a young multi-millionare heiress shot and killed her live-in Argentine polo-player boyfriend here, one morning before he finished his breakfast croissant, when she owned this farm (she sold these 340 acres for $ 4.9 million about 8 years ago). Convicted of manslaughter, she served two months in the county jail (perhaps a lawyer was called, before 911). Reckon polo players were out-of-season when she shot him," I informed my companion.

"Hey, let's find that Union payroll MONEY!" exclaimed Ali.

"Hey, haven't these guys ever SEEN an alligator before?



View from side road nearest the historical marker; Ali is at base of tree on right:





Covered up and marked with tube:



View of hideout tree from highway side:
