Maybe tomorrow since no one seems to want to take one for the team

Or, a generously long lunch break!

Grab (finally!);
8359 Leesburg Pike, Ste. B, Vienna, VA‎; Tysons Corner Jimmy Johns near Greensboro Metro station.

NW quadrant of the intersection of routes 7 and 123.

Here's the soon-to-be-opened Metro station at Tysons Corners, "Greensboro Station:"



The dining establishment of note:



Two Metro associates, who I found working diligently to open the Silver Line's Greensboro Station for your dining and dancing pleasure:



Standing near my bike, they were intrigued by the initials, "K," "L," "R." Turns out, each gentleman's personal initials are, "K.L.R." I asked them not to claim ownership of my bike, using the "KLR" logo as provenance!

Tag, when I get around to it . . . doesn't seem like anyone's in a hurry to play this game!

D'oh! I actually went by this morning, but couldn't find Alli. Did you make it before 8 or so? Was wondering if I really understood the game.

Yesterday, I ended up having a last minute, two hour meeting over lunch break. Then the thunderstorms came and I figured I'd better get home quickly. :(

I believe there are at least two entrances to the metro, did you go to the one off of 7, or the one off of 123. While 123 may have had a nice ring to it, that spot got you no joy. . ..

Actually went to both, but definitely by the one next to Jimmy John's.

Was kind of unsure whether Ali was somebody's private mascot or the tag... and was kind of self-conscious about digging through their bushes. :)

XDrag, neat grab, and here's hoping you tag sooner rather than later . . .. Never hurts to keep the game moving.

Welcome to the game. Nice try on the grab. As for the game, use the clues or pics to find the tag, and the pics to find the hide. Typically, the hide is marked by an "A" using sticks, or some other indicator, to prevent the "here, let me tear up your ground/flower bed/mulch" alternative. Take a "grab" pic of the gator with your bike, then go place a hide and take pics to post later. Post the grab with the address, then post the new tag with tag and hide pics, and perhaps some textual clue(s) (sometimes photos are sufficient). Then watch for PMs as inmates guess. And so on, and so on, and so on. . ..

We've had grab to tag pic intervals of about 4 hours, sometimes its slower. Outside is usually 24 hours, allows folks who want to play to have an excuse to ride.

I'm in no hurry to sit in RLD traffic in this heat.

I did make the VA tag grab the other day. Would have done the NW tag as well, but I needed to go to Richmond to buy beer

Had some difficulty finding Ali; started out searching on the wrong side of Route 7.

Finally finding the proper station (thanks to the duty fire-fighter at the firehouse near Greensboro Road), I wondered . . . where will the Metro riders PARK? While I was overwhelmed by the recent development at Tysons Corner, I saw no parking garage or even parking lot proximate to the Greensboro station capable of handling many vehicles; maybe I just missed it in my daze.
