Nice lookin' scoot!

Hey, high tide isn't going to turn our egg into a castaway, will it?

Thanks, I haven't dumped it yet. It'll make a sweet dual sport. I made that tail bag myself too. Gonna start selling a lot of them. I need to make some larger side bags next.

If you go to get the tag, there is another nice boardwalk that goes under the train bridge. It has nice DEP educational signs too. I highly suggest the scenic walk if you make it down there. The large ice chunks ice lappiing against the rocks were impressive.

Tag got!


I snagged the Nutmeg State tag earlier in the day and retrieved an Israeli coin as part of the tag, I will be adding it to the stash of items accompanying the egg:



Now where should I move this to...

Edit:
Address was DEP Marine District Headquarters, 333 Ferry Rd, Old Lyme, CT.

I'm glad someone got it quick. The bag was close to the high tide level and I was hoping no good storms came along. Bravo.

It snowed last night so the egg and I decided to stay inside rather than risk life and limb (not that he has any limbs).

The egg was musing about what it would be like to try on someone else's skin so I obliged:
First it was banana style:


Then we went for clementine style:


Then we realized it was taking on too much of a Buffalo Bill/Silence of the Lambs vibe so we stopped.

Then the egg went to play with the dog for a bit:


I didn't have a destination in mind when I grabbed the egg, I just wanted to save him from the high tide and add my mark so I figure he can hang out here for a few days while dig out my Dremel.

I have some big trips coming up in the next few weeks but they weren't supposed to be bike trips. I may have to punt him back out into the cold before I leave unless I can come up with something epic quick.

While I'm hanging onto him I have some thoughts about "improvements", more on that in a bit.

Further thoughts on the logistics of the egg:

The writing on the back of the case that was meant to prevent overzealous DHS agents from calling in the EOD team has worn off. REI sells a small black waterproof Pelican case with a clear lid displaying the words "Official Geocache" that looks much less intimidating than a camo sack and should theoretically preclude any EOD incidents should it be found by the officials. I would also think most civilians have at least heard of geocaching and would be less likely to abscond with it if they stumble across it. I would still leave the laminated note inside as backup. I may take a ride out there to see if the egg fits and swap it for the camo sack if nobody objects:
Geocache Case

I was also thinking about dropping a Chirp in with the egg. It's a tiny waterproof homing beacon with 1 year battery life that can be picked up by a compatible GPS from about 30 feet away. This could help to prevent situations like the one in Maryland where somebody couldn't find the egg and left thinking they'd been bruced but it depends on having a compatible GPS receiver. I would also worry about non-ADVers in the vicinity detecting the Chirp with their GPS because as far as I know there's no way to restrict the broadcast to only a select few. The more I think about it the more I think this is a bad idea.
Chirp

And thirdly I noticed that there's a USB memory stick in the entourage now. I spent my snow/presidents day going back through the thread and compiling a list of everywhere the tag has been (I noticed Blinkerfluid stopped updating the map a long time ago). I plan on dropping this list on the memory stick so it can be updated as the tag travels. I will post the list I've created in a separate post so you can see if I made any errors before I drop the tag again and PM me with corrections.

It rubs the lotion on its skin or else it gets the hose again.

Here is the list of every tag so far in order with the date it was set and who set it. If you see something that needs correction please shoot me a PM and I'll take care of it. I plan on putting this list on the USB memory stick that's floating around with the egg now.

It would be really neat to have GPS coordinates in this list as they would be more accurate than the street addresses I came up with but this list took me long enough to put together as it is. Now if everyone who placed a tag could PM me the GPS coordinates of the tags they placed I would be happy to update the list. please send in the lat/lon format that can be pasted into Google Maps like this: "37.771008, -122.41175"

Apologies but for some reason I can't figure out how to post this without a ludicrous amount of whitespace between my text and the list. I'm hoping it's just my browser and it will look normal to you guys but I doubt it.

So with that, scroll down for the list:
