I wasn't going to let today's weather pass without trying for a grab. So I launched off to Whitney State Forest, secure in the knowledge that I'd find Ali at the end of Lover's Lane. I arrived in due course (pretty neat tagging around there, well worth exploring), and found the sign. Parked the ride, went to the sign, and here's what I found:

Bupkus.




Rats, I figured I'd been bruced. But in thinking about the tag, I remembered seeing what looked like wire in Boatman's tag picture, and a bolt, things I didn't see here. Then I recalled that Boatman can be a very tricky tagger. Luckily, in an effort to avert my ever increasing affliction of mad cow, I had brought along my XDrag inspired tag pic. I retrieved it, and sure enough, the sign post wasn't quite the same. I figured, no, that would be devilish. Would Boatman really try for a sucker longer ride non-bruce and tag the second sign?

Yep.

Grab:

Whitney State Forest, 9000 Lees Ridge Road (between Candy Meadow and Foxtail Lanes), Marshall, Virginia:



FWIW, the tag was on a neat little path:




New tag to follow.

Tag:



You'll find Ali at the base of the street sign:


Hidden and marked like so:


From the tag, looking right:


From the tag, looking left:


Looking back to the bike:



The clue:

I did this tag on the fly because I was intrigued by the road. It turns out to be awfully close but not an identical dupe. Sooo, find the road named after our only submariner president, who you would think was old and had a mill, and then find where that road intersects with one where you might find barns in training.

When you find that place, be sure to look around on the map. Lots of fun places to explore. If you do opt to take the second above mentioned road out, be mindful of the horses, that are actually in training.

Happy Tagging!

Are you frickin serious!?!?!?! I went right by there on my way fron Sterling to Warrenton!!! I was thinking that would make a good spot but I wanted to ride further.


The Whitney tag was not intended to be any trickery. The signs are completely different and the first sign location was in the TOR map.
