That is a "no fun zone"! Don't enter, no smoking, no drinking......

G2K, well done!

For those playing at home, highlighted below were the embedded clues. What I didn't give you was amphitheater, which was the Jiffy Lube/Nissan Pavillion references, as well as the pic of the amphitheater itself.

The clue:

Ali was miffed. "Where's the water guy? I'm a aquatic gator!" "Sorry, he's not here and the water reference won't help, this time you're dealing with a land lubber," I replied. "How 'bout we run over to a place like that Jiffy Lube concert spot you rested at some time back -- you know, the one that used to be called Nissan Pavillion?" Ali was ok with that, so we did. This is a true RLD tag, one that Columbus could easily find, especially if he looked north, and most certainly by his 2nd attempt.

Not the tag I was planning...

You know how sometimes you stop doing something for awhile and you fall out of the habit, and you forget to do the one thing that's really important? Well that explains how Ali spent some time this morning waiting for my return in the parking lot after sliding off my topcase. She was NOT pleased:



Saddest part is I made it all the way to my original planned tag before I noticed. :-(

In any event, I reverted to plan B, which involved joining Mr. Wilson for a quick climb up Mount McKinley to find the new tag spot!

Bike shot:



Ali is at the base of the above tree hidden by a coffee cup:





Happy Tagging!

I have no idea what you are talking about. Now if I can only find that blackberry tablet. . ..

Grab: Water Tower residing near 6184 Wilson Boulevard, Arlington, Virginia.

I arrived to see what certainly seemed like a Bruce:


So I grabbed the camera and took a pic (and threw out the cup). But I figured whoever grabbed would have done that, and cups are light, so I took a better look around. Success!


Ali looking skyward:


And momentarily with testkid.4, while I figure out where to go:

Damn. I shouldn't have stopped for Pho at Eden first.

Tag:



Clue:

Find this gravel road.


Looking left:


Looking right:


Take the right fork about a third of a mile. You'll cross two paths, and at the intersecting paths, you'll find a sign that is the name of the park past that point. It says no motorized vehicles. . ..

Ali is at the base of that sign post:


He's hiding under grasses, marked by an "A" stick, like so:


Tag area looking left:


Tag area looking right (with sign post pictured):


Tag area looking back:


If you go too far, you'll see this:


If the gravel path is blocked, find a road nearby that is named after a white post. It'll take you to the area you see in the "looking right" pic, and you can walk in from there.

Happy Tagging!

You know, this pic clued me in...and I haven't been up that way in a LONG time.

The next couple pics confirmed the location.

Grabbage! 38.827534,-77.460466
How ironic. I stopped in Centreville for fuel. Took a quick peek at the thread, and voila! NOVA dropped a tag right down the road! In his pic I just barely was able to see the service road across 29 from where I was at the Sunoco So I fueled the ol girl up and hopped back on the saddle. I am curious as to how far behind him I was.
