New tag
 
OK I'll cut to the chase since I'm in an internet cafe in Machias Me. I'll fill in the details about the trip when I get home.

Eastern most point in the U.S.

seemed only fitting for a tag of national importance.

Now somebody's gotta save Mr. Egg from a very humiliating experience and heres how: When standing at the exact place of the tag...look directly to your right and you will see this:

In the right rear corner you will find Mr. Egg in his bag next to the white pvc vent pipe:

He is very pissed off about where I left him....so please go soon.

It was very difficult to find a place that was covered and safe...I think he will be ok for a couple of days. You can go after hours because the shack is outside of the gate.

A view from the rear of the shack:

Overcast today but better than yesterday.

Long live Mr. egg...and you guys with the twisted minds stop eggsagerating.

Me and Mr. Egg had spent the night at the Super 8 just outside Portland Me. I woke up early cuz I heard the tv...and there was egghead watching the sports recap.
I finally got him moving and he took care of his morning business

Then we hit the road...but we had a little arts and craft project to tend to right away

Someone forgot to put their name on the egg because they were so busy riding across the country



http://whizzerwheel.smugmug.com/phot...90_wW68r-L.jpg



With that done....we just blasted on up to Quoddy Head since the weather was over cast and there were no views at all.

Great job with the tag. Long live Mr. Egg! :D

ST-Ranger 07-01-2009 08:05 AM

Thank you Mr. Wizzered (or was that just wizzerwheel) for the extra work on my behalf. It looks like you had a great ride and as they say you have set the bar yet again. Going the distance is only part of the show, it is the way you do it and the places you get to along the way that add to the game. Now let's see who picks up the egg next and where we might go this time.

I too will miss the little guy and hope that he has a good journey with some more great riding buddies.

Well I updated the map again for anyone who would care to see it.. Also, since I can't view photobucket pictures at work, I do need to know what Tag #34 (grabed by amadvikingjr) and Tag #41 (grabed by ST-Ranger) are.. I'm pretty sure I have Tag #41 placed pretty close to its actual spot, but no idea where #34 is supposed to go so I'll have to move it later.

HeyDoc 07-01-2009 11:20 AM

Way to go WW, great report, great tag. I hope some one grabs it soon, before a tourist finds it!

Alas, she is safe.... 400 miles to bring her home to the sanctuary of my castle... tomorrow we venture forth, seeking a new cubby....

(ps,, egg says the last guy was a little creepy )

whizzerwheel 07-01-2009 06:48 PM

Phew...Nice grab

And I represent that last comment...since you think Mr. Egg is a she...I'm really concerned about his welfare now! :huh

ST-Ranger 07-02-2009 06:26 AM

Good Job on the pickup of the TAG & egg Mr. WistlingFool. Now I'm sure you will wistle while you work on your next new TAG point!!! I'm sure we will all look forward to the next ride report and location of the egg.
