After hanging out in the horrible RLD, Ali wanted some fresh air. Unfortunately, I couldn't go where the air is clean, so I found some technology that would provide Clean Air. This is especially important because the nearby airport must really pump out quite a bit of pollution.
















Sorry for the delay. Had trouble with the pics showing up

And you marked the hide with an "A" -- outstanding! Must have killed you to waste that firewood!

Darn.

Got there around 7pm today and figured I'd at least see if i found Ali. I'm a very new inmate and wasn't sure I wanted to make a grab. However I didn't see him or the makshift "A". Maybe someone already grabbed him and is still out hiding. but hey, I'm glad I managed to find the spot!

Someone DID grab Ali!

Thus, you've been "Bruced!"

[Bruced; verb, past tense of having the mascot grabbed before you had the opportunity!]



Grab site address below (not that it matters; Tag-o-rama map much outdated):

Air Cleaning Technologies
44966 Falcon Place Suite 190
Sterling, VA 20166


(Dang; can't break out of this italicizing nonsense!)

Should have left some kind of calling card/token, indicating Ali had been liberated.

Images and new tag a-comin'.

Nice going, regardless, Ibanez47!

One hears of the "Beverly Hillbillies," yet . . . little is said of the Beverly Millbillies!



Ali on window ledge of mill-in-question:



Ali STILL on window ledge of mill:


Ali wanted to inspect the dilapidated machinery within:



Sharp-eyed viewers may see Ali on the wall in the center of this shot of the makeshift auditorium:



Less sharp-eyed viewers may make out Ali in this image, "I know you're all wondering why I asked you here," Ali says:



Should someone care about the history, one can read about it here:



Ali reposes under the west support post of the above sign:



"Do come soon," Ali says, "My camouflage is minimal, and . . . this grass is getting kinda tall. If those ol' boys with their gnashing, slashing power mowers come and do the job they should, I'll doubtless be discovered, if not dismembered!"



Unsure of when the gate to the mill grounds might be locked, I placed Ali as shown, near the end of the road where one might find Beverly Millbillies:





This road intersects with a road that might have been named after Ted, who was kinda Fonda Jane, at least for awhile. That road off a double-digit highway whose sum of its digits is 10; crosses over another double-digit highway whose sum is 12.

Good point! I neglected to inform Ibanez in my "tutorial," unless one PHOTOGRAPHS the Bruce, it doesn't count, or even exist!

I found ALI

I stopped by about 8am on my Search and save ALI Mission. And got her safely scooped up and brought home to dry out! Will plant her in the next 24 hours!

Nope just my 2010 KLX250S with only 400 miles.. Previous owner was too scared to ride it!
Sorry to Bruce you NoVA rider but I figured ALI needed to be saved before she was swept away!
