Tag:

Australia's not the only place one might find one of these:



Although not in Australia, Ali's in another country:





Ali meets some of the friendly local natives; both of the porcine, and of the bovine, persuasions:





On the north side of the establshment, one finds, well, shrubbery (you know, not unlike in, "Monty Python and the Holy Grail"):



Separated from the building by the once drive-thru lane is a formidable display of HOLLY; "A" marks Ali's present location:





Again, this landscaping is north of the drive-thru lane, not immediately adjacent to the building.

I've been missing a lot of Ali's adventures! Not enough hours in the day lately, it seems. Hope to re join the game soon. Bruced or not, I look forward to it

Low probability of being Bruced, TET!

A couple of inmates correctly recognize the location, although I don't think anyone grasped the principal clue: The gemstone type shown relates to the place-name of the tag location . . .

Think you've got it? Confirming, tag's on a highway whose digits total 11; near intersection with another adding up to 8.

UPDATE: Yet another inmate correctly identified the tag location; still . . . by visual recognition only; clues of no value!

LATER UPDATE: One inmate has now actually located the tag, by intelligently and methodically exploiting the CLUES! Thus, in this instance, the clues are not in vain.

Actually, the gem alone said it all (though the reference to Australia in that regard confirmed it; not that it looked like a diamond, anyway)

Great, elnonio; now TWO inmates have processed successfully one or more clues!

Now, we wait; will someone actually GRAB the mascot?

Well, seems I am at quite the crossroads. Ali is still here. I want to grab, but want to ride. Hopefully, I dont over step some rules by making a late tag in a few hours.

I will post pix later, but tag is made. Here are some clues:
I would have thought the Lakota tribe would have first seen a Ford in the Black Hills, or maybe Detroit. However, it seems they meet near a Clover Hill. At a bridge. Ali is at tje end of the bridge guard rail. Nestled under the yellow and black reflective marker. He is juuust inside the tag boundry.

Oh, and while the road is paved, you will have to park on some gravel. Mind your side stand.
