RocketMan, I just spent eight days on a ride with two clowns (VACommuter and inhousebob) fully capable of this kind of irreverent wisecrack, which they uttered continuously, all the way to Georgia and back!

Example: After I showered in our shared motel room, inhousebob remarked, "XDragracer just used the hair dryer to dry his hair."

VACommuter: "Really? Which one?"

I return to expected peace and civility here in northern Virginia, and what do I get? This same brand of low "humor" from you! Is there no escape for me from this raucous high-jinks?

Now I know how Rodney Daingerfield felt!

Descriptive clue: Ali was complaining 'bout skeeters. Seems he's a bit unsure if they are pests or food. So he needed to call someone, and needed to find a telephone. To find Ali, locate a road that should have a telephone on it, and some skeeters.

Happy Tagging!

Looking forward to it; hope I can keep up with that Yamaha 400!

And, I hope you might invite me to tea, sometime, in that 3100 square-feet yellow turreted mansion you're buying in Clarksdale ("The Birth of the Blues"), Mississippi!

Damn you NOVA! I was going to tag there a couple weeks ago, but I didn't like that this was right in front of the store. Figured they would come running out with a 12 gauge when they saw me messing around there.

Snatch!

Ali is now hanging out at my digs for a few then we'll head out for the tag drop...
Seems this Skeeters was niether food nor bugs but rather something non-eatable, a custom leather/saddle shop.

Skeeters Custom Leather located on Telephone Rd. right off RT28 just north of Warrenton.





An the Skeeters store, with Mr. Skeeter hisself (I assume it was Mr. Skeeter when he asked if needed pick up anything), so I explained the game with Ali.



Then it was off to get a cold drink...



Tag drop coming up soon as I get Ali away from surffing for Aligator porn (and Yes it seems it does exist, Yikes! )

Next tag

After I pried Ali away from the Gator-porn we were off to the new tag location. Ali wanted to ride the CB125 so off we went.

There is a creek and wetlands with a name that sounds like the one of the best known cracker companys and then find the road that runs along the top of it.
Then look for this about mid way along the road, note there are two but only one with the dirt road that runs down the hill from it.

The visuals


closer


and bit further back again


follow the road the CB is pointed down NOTE this is NOT a road bike friendly trail! there is another way to get the tag shown in a later photo where you can park and walk to the tag.




look for this pole when the road meets another coming down the hill to the left


looking back up the road


before



after


And a bit further down the paved road is this gate, this is the walking access, just walk down til you come the green pole.



And across the street from the gate is this view

Grab, Blackburn Road, adjacent Neabsco Creek Wetlands Preserve, South of Ripon Boulevard:





Thanks to the Google-Fu of SteelB12, and the analysis of NoVa Rider!

Ali was hungry for, guess what, sea food! RocketMan and I took the reptile to Tim's, where I shared my fish filet sandwich and half-dozen fresh river oysters; RocketMan gave Ali a bite of his crab cake (broiled) sandwich and a swig or two of some adult beverage or other:



Turning inland, Ali saw a couple of structures and began singing a hymn about lighthouses,
Quote:
Let the lower lights be burning,
Send a gleam, across the wave,
Some poor fainting, struggling seaman [motorcyclist],
You may rescue, you may save!




Good place for Ali to repose, NE of the westernmost "lighthouse:"



RocketMan fashioned the "A," Ali's underneath the stone shown:



Road clue: NOT Cherry Hill Road. At least, not any more! Now, at the intersection of a high-falutin' "Heritage" boulevard, and . . . some kind of "Station," parkway . . . (I think a VRE "Station" is planned, proximate.)

Development named for a principal waterway's shore.

Hurry and grab; with the upturn in the real estate market, the ground crew's sprucing this acreage up with vigor; Ali may be discovered as the gardeners till the mulch.

CAVEAT: "Lighthouses" don't show on Google Maps satellite view; just a construction area at the intersection.
