That would be the airline currently in bankruptcy, trying to merge with US Air, which the DOJ is trying to block.

American.

Well, whatever happens with the merger, I hope it doesn't affect your job in a negative way.

I used this for another tag so I knew right where it was located. Foxville Rd. just off Opal Rd, Warrenton.

Thanks for that. I'm pretty positive it won't. I've built up enough seniority, things would have to go WAY south before I got worried.

Yeah, a couple inmates pointed out it had been used before in the nova tag. And I thought I was being clever... Nice grab and the new tag is close to my abode as well.

Its all good! There are not many places around here that haven't already been tagged.

I wasn't complaining,,, the riding out there is much more satisfying than where I picked up the NOVA tag that morning.

I didn't think you were (complaining). Sorry if my post came across that way.

So I guess I screwed up roy-ali by not looking at the tags before I left! This is right across the road from the previous NOVA tag correct?

No wonder I was expecting to find Igor when I uncovered Ali.

I think it's pretty close..... realized it after I left the tag locale and was headed down the road. I seem to have a knack for finding previously tagged spots in this TOR.

I'll get it right when I get back down that way. In the meantime though I'm off to Colorado and Utah for a couple weeks!!

I rode the entire length of that gravel road today, from Springs Rd to 211, and I never saw that stump with the green posts. I saw the Leaky Pond sign, but not the stump...

Oh well, guess someone else is gonna have to grab this.

Yes but those coordinates take you to where the NOVA tag I grabbed was. Boatman's last post left me even more confused.
I didn't look at the other side of the road while grabbing the NOVA tag so I can't say for sure if that's where the tag is but after seeing aviaator's last post I'm thinking something ain't quite right with the clues...
