I do not know where this is, though apparently from the clues I should.

It's pretty close, within a few miles of your abode! I validated my suspicions via Bing Maps. Bing Maps proved useful for validating this one. It's about a mile from where my mechanic's workshop is.

But . . . TH had to ride past that mechanic's workshop. Which got him Bruced. TH has additional photo evidence.

Industry Drive, Manassas Park, VA near the end.

Yep. I got BRUCED! At least Ali was held up in plain sight for me to see. I almost managed to get Ali to British Motorcycle Club meeting. Maybe next time!

Good gob mriderleon!

You can't get there from here.

If I understand this game correctly, one places a tag by taking a photo which contains 3 items. A motorcycle, Ali and Ali's current hiding place. To claim a tag (grab), one should make a reasonable duplicate of the tag photo

In Geometry; when comparing two lines they are intersecting, parallel or skew. For the rest of this post consider only the last example.

Ali is located near two roads in Prince William County. The first road has 8 lanes, 5 in one direction and 3 that go the other way. The second is named for the state bird of Virginia. But, I doubt anyone really needs the written clues. The pictures should be sufficient.

Ali has amazing Spiderman skills. He scrambled up behind that sign in no time. Then he wanted me to follow so I could get some close-up pictures. I finally got up there, but it wasn't easy.

The tag photo:


Moving back to better identify the hiding place . Ali is behind the sign and fence at the location circled in red.


A closeup of the hiding place:


And covered with a cardboard box.


Be careful. Not only is that climb exciting, but getting in and out of the construction area where the bike is parked is also interesting. At the north end, you'll have to be careful of a rather large dip, you might want to go around it, I went through, so it isn't too bad. At the south end, there isn't much room to maneuver around the various barrels, fences and barricades.

Enjoy

Grab; Cardinal Drive as it passes over the zip lanes of I-95, more-or-less Dumfries, VA.

I gotta ask, how was access gained to Ali's hiding spot?

Inquiring minds want to know!

Ali: This motor transport appears mundane; anything more elegant available?

Me: Well, what about some yachting? I know of a splendid marina nearby.

Ali: Terrific!



Ali: Question!

Me: Shoot!

Ali: Shouldn't wood be the major structural material used for that bridge?

Me: Well, maybe once upon a time . . . now, look downstream, where the tributary (Indian name) meets a larger waterway (also an Indian name):



Ali stretched out in the soft green vegetation under the rightmost diamond sign:



I then covered Ali with a piece of driftwood:



Ali: Hey, no "A!" Tell me, is that piece of wood with which you're covering me flotsam, or jetsam?

Me: Honestly, I don't know.

If anyone wants a road clue, we're sorta at the south end of a road that might have been named, phonetically, for Dennis Weaver's "Gunsmoke" character, if he went outdoors in wintertime.

My guess is he just came in off Cardinal Drive and did some sidewalk parking, Ali looked to be placed behind the chain link fence on that side.
