I'd never been here before, but wanted to visit. Thanks for the tag!

Walking from the parking area:


Several statues/memorials were visible, including the probable tag:


A bit of history:


Success, with the "A" pointing towards Ali's just visible snout:


Grabbed:


Heading back to the parking lot:


And the bike shot, with Ali pondering if he might get lost at the next tag:



Tag to follow!

Tag (with Ali lounging on the kayak bag):


The hide, marked by the telltale "A" (which I suppose could stand for "ADV" or "Ali"):


And the clue (which may be familiar):


Happy tagging!

From a previous visit, here's Ali inside a World War II amphibious tractor; an alligator inside an alligator, as it were:

Glad I was Bruced, in contrast to witnessing another purloining of the reptile!





"Either I'm Bruced, or Aii's buried beyond the range of my ground-penetrating radar!"

Le tag:

Little Jack ____ sat on the corner
Of fourth st and his namesake
Watching the tower full of water
For alligators that like steak!

This is the aforementioned tower:



Next to the support behind the bike:



You will find a patch of ivy pointed at by the "A":



Happy tagging!

Thanks!

If, at first, you don't succeed . . .



4th Street at Horner; Warrenton, VA:

Ali luxuriates on Martin's new (to him) "Go Ride Fast" Suzuki's saddle.

Ali, informed of the new tag site, said, "I THINK I've been there before!"

"Maybe so, " said I, "but . . . I want to show Martin a place where motorcyclists sometimes hang out, since he now has his own machine; and . . . I can't research the NOVA Tag-o-rama Map for dupes with just the tin can and string I have with me."









Oh, yes . . . the village and the road share their name with the first name of the actor who was the ORIGINAL Mr. Belvedere ("Sitting Pretty," 1948), who also played patriarch Gilbreth in, "Cheaper By The Dozen (1950)," and portrayed John Phillip Sousa (1952) on the silver screen . . .

(I THINK there's a plaque inside commemorating the visits of ORexpat to the General Store.)

Maybe not; Ali was just stuck, head-first (or maybe, tail-first) down among the foilage. Sure you looked closely?
