46380 Cranston St
Sterling, VA



Was in the neighborhood catching some dinner with my better half prior checked to see if there had been any grabs nothing posted so figured I'd go make the grab. It's after midnight and really don't like being out with all the kamikaze deer and the inebriated drivers so trucked it home. Tag will be coming in the morning after I defrost my fingers from tonight, get some shut eye and get back in the saddle again.

Ali will be going west of the previous location for this weekend tag.

Sorry for spoiling anyone's plans for a early AM grab out in Sterling if you had so planned

This one will be easy, person I was waiting for call back to borrow their truck further west still hasn't called and didn't want to hold everyone up any longer to make the drop in the spot where I had originally thought to go. Beautiful day for a ride!!

So all creativity is out of this one but will be easy to find so game can move on. I think Amsterdam and Evil Twin likely live out in this area so if they are paying attention it's really close.

The big box store pictured is near the 29 and 66 mess that if anyone of you actually have to commute through I feel for ya.

Had to pick up my beemer car anyway as stereo was replaced yesterday by Mark at this location. Really knowledgeable guy and has a good sense of humor. Probably a job requirement to have a sense of humor if you have to deal with the wiring on a BMW, absolute nightmares usually.

Here's the noted big box store:


Here's my lovely wife who came along for the ride seeing how we needed to pick up the car:


Here's the bush where you will find the Ali buried in the appropriate mulch spa treatment


Marked it with a blue flag found left lying around to make it a bit easier


These bushes will be right behind the store from where the picture of the store was taken. So easy to find.

Happy Tagging!

And then found Ali:


In the spirit of supporting our westerly taggers and in taking advantage of the good weather, a nearby tag to follow!

Yes, a double dupe. . ..

Tag:





Tucked in the backside of the guardrail, dam side, like so:


Find the road where Ali could see his two familiar friends, Glen and Kirk. As I left, Ali was muttering: why did you leave me on this dam side. . ..

Happy Tagging!
