Grab !
 
Mr Egg is grabbed and on the move. Details & pics shortly.:D

The Tag shot. Location is the home of Capt. Nathan Hale (1755-1776) in Coventry Ct. Capt Hale was a Revolutionary War hero, captured in NYC in Sept. 1776 and hanged by the Brits for spying. He is quoted, as he was about to be hanged, as saying, "My only regret is that I have but one life to give for my country".

The tree and wall. Great hiding spot DocGS.

Headed home, but first I left a nice "Bruced Trophy". I KNOW there are other crazy taggers in the area who would be looking for the coveted Mr Egg. No matter how cold and dark!!

I have been following NA ToR since the beginning (NO MASCOT!) and have always enjoyed the widely traveling tag. I was REALLY suprised to see Mr Egg show up less than 20 miles from home:eek1:eek1:eek1. No way I was going to miss this opportunity!!! I am almost certain that this is the first time the NA ToR has stopped in Ct. I am also almost certain that there is one more state in New England (or the entire North east for that matter) that Mr Egg has not visited. We will remedy that by Weds afternoon, and possibly sooner, if you don't mind another night-time tag.
But first Mr Egg wanted to warm up by the fire and then early to bed. No drinks tonight, he needs to be up early for work Mon. AM.

Long Cold Bruce
 
I did not leave my house until 10pm.
My internet server was down,so I could not check this.
Anyway, thanks for leaving the Bruce prize,I would have
looked for awhile after my 60 mile Highway blast at 26 degrees.

Wow, I didn't know you followed this ToR, V8. It was a cold night to make that ride. Down into the 20s by late night:eek1:eek1 so I'm glad you didn't go home completely empty-handed:D.

V8 11-29-2010 04:07 AM

I got the second place prize.:1drink
Hey, I moved the Nutmeg tag.
I was not following this TOR untill I saw Boatman
bring it North,and I knew it had to come back south
soon enough. Decided to go for it as I pulled out of the driveway.
It was a nice brisk ride.Have fun placing the egg HeyDoc!!Great Grab.:clap

HeyDoc 11-29-2010 06:48 PM

All work and no riding !!??
 
Today was supposed to be a day of rest for Mr Egg. No riding possible. But he was up early and insisted on going in to the office with me. "I won't get in the way, there are probably some things I can even help you with. I have become quite proficient with computers......." OK, OK, off to work at 7am. Well, he did not get in the way at all, in fact I hardly ever saw him all day long. But everytime I did, he was just hanging around with one or more of the staff.....I don't think very much work was accomplished, they were just talking and laughing. I think Mr Egg likes the women as much as he likes the booze.

It was nice to have him around, but I think he is getting anxious to be on the road again. He has mentioned maybe heading south for the winter. I told him I can help out by moving him one state south,and to a state he has never visited. He is all excited about this plan so we will probably ride Tues night instead of waiting until Weds. afternoon. Stay tuned for details.:evil

The Egg Is Dropped !
 
My wife thinks I am out of my mind, but last night in a 40 degree rain was my only real chance to move Mr Egg. So off we went.

The Tag Shot. Find this sign on Rt 165, Exeter RI. Very close to I95 and points south:evil.

http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5165/...f30848ce_z.jpg

The drop spot is just behind the small tree visible in this pic, to the right and about 20 yards beyond the entrance sign.

http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4091/...dc015573_z.jpg

The Egg is nested right at the trunk of the tree, under some leaves and X marks the spot.

The "goodie bag" is really pretty packed but I was able to fit 1 more small motorcycle related item! It was great to host the NA Tor in Ct & RI and I hope it gets back up here again. Ride safe, supposed to be clear but cold weather, Thurs-Sun.

Haha...great job bouncing Mr. EGG around, riders!!! :clap



(I love the 'bruce' trophy!!! Well played sir!!) :norton

Tag location list
 
The rain and high winds forced me to change plans for the day. I used some of my unexpected free time to go through the NA ToR thread and compile a list of States and Provinces the tag has stopped in. Please feel free to add to the list if I missed any. I only list states 1 time each and only states it was posted in, not just passed through.
N.C. Va. Pa. Md. De. W Va. D.C. Al. Ga. Tn. S.C. Ky. NJ. NYC. Chicago. In. NH. Me. Quebec. Ontario. NY. Fl. Ca. Oh. Il. Mexico & Belize. Ks. Alaska & BC (not tags) Wa. Or. Ar. Ok. Ma. Vt. Ct. RI

I must have missed a few...........

Patrick46 12-04-2010 08:59 AM

That's a cool list there Doc!^^^


but I also think maybe a listing of the states Mr. EGG has NOT been in would be good...
that way the players can do what they can to get him to all 48! :clap

It is cold here in New England, but no snow and not even any rain since Weds. night. I'm shocked that this is still sitting:eek1.
