Another oops, sorry! Misleading clue, should have checked my facts. I actually just found that other park on 810 the other day AFTER I planted the tag at the park that rhymes with teddy and has a moving body of water in its name. Who would think albe. County has so many new parks tucked away and just opened up in the past 2 years. Hfg hope you had fun riding out there and searching drainage ditches. Does everyone who would want to go for this now knows where it is with the further clues?

Hfg I'll have to leave a tag right by your house with a little valley style hidden treat hidden away with the cache.

The cool road it's off of parrallels another cool road. It would make a great loop. Stop off at Grand Junction for some great food.
The wifey and I may have to make the next grab on Sunday. I have a road in mind that has another great eating place near by.

No worries Fox, I had a good ride anyway and I'd been meaning to go up to Byrom. It looks really nice.

If I hadn't been losing daylight I might have taken the time to look at your photos before I ran out the door, but no.

Instead of being "bruced" you could call it a "no brainer"!

Hopefully the brain will show up...

Brain and Brain! What is Brain? (Any old Star Trek fans out there??) (Apparently not...)

Grab! Preddy Creek Trail Park.





Did ya feel a little silly poking around in all those drain pipes?

Well I've been having so much fun with the Parks theme, I thought I'd continue it.

Adventure South, boys and girls to another Albemarle Park.





Near the end of the last parking area is a path that goes up toward a shelter and a little play area for tiny tots.
At the base of this well slab is the little green brain, hiding under a rock.








Sorry about all the Brucings! (not much though...) I just got home from a nice long loop.

Cheers and Happy New Year All!

I could ride along for hours
avoiding all the showers
trying to miss the rain
And my head I'd be shaking
solving clues inmates were making
If I could only find the brain
