Gator is behind the No Parking Sign seen behind the bike.



Not Gators but close.

Instead of giving you clues so that you can blunder around on Google, I'm going to give you the general location & you can blunder around on your bike.

Tag is in part of Riverview Regional Park. Various parts of the park are gated & close at night, but the tag is only about 1/4-1/2 mile past one of these gates, so walk it in if it's dark.

I was out in that area last night. But it was getting a touch dark, so I turned around. But now that I practiced my googlefoo skills and moved slightly beyond novice apprentice, I believe I finally found it.

I was on the wrong road last night.

Only catch is, now I need to get back out that way! ARghhh

Someone grab it & bring to my place tomorrow night. HBN & are hosting a half-assed tech night. More like food & beers in the garage. PM if you didn't see details in the Chatter thread.

TH gets credit for this one. . ..

Grab: jeffrey road, great falls, va (near end/riverbend park)





Very nice tag, hadn't been back there. Many "modest" homes were noted. . ..

New tag, or Ali to new tagger, sometime this evening.

Ali has been handed off. . .. After pressing the plastic, oogling a meal and watching wrenching, an oil change and other assorted maintenance. . ..

Because without HBN's pics, it didn't happen:

The meal:




Watching an oil change



Ali trying to find ancestors in the drain pan:"Grandpa?"

Thanks for stopping by. At the end of the night, nobody took Ali home with them

So I made her breakfast today and I'll try to find something on my way in.

Oh no, you are corrupting Ali with a no meat diet!

Ali decided that millions of years of evolution have led him to meat.

Dang; just got Windows 7; somehow lost my draft response when I hit "minimize!"

Anyhow, grab at Let's Meat On The Avenue, 2403 Mt. Vernon Ave., Alexandria, VA.

Butcher-in-chief whispered, he sometimes carries Alligator meat . . . didn't want Ali to hear and become offended/frightened!



Guess I'll have to post this, then come back and EDIT with the bike picture.

Tag before dark Saturday!

My favorite butcher in the area. Great guy. And I have bought alligator from him (it's delicious) as well as kangaroo. And many more normal meats. Highly recommend his place.
