Rode into Meat Cove last night, not sure that I'd find anyone else there on a Sunday night early in the season.
Met EvilClown and few other Maine Rider ff's. Campfire time conversation topics touched on TOR and I was eggcoouraged to take a little ride to the very end of the road.



I'm heading back the the states in a few days and eventually back home to PA in another week or so. Will either find a likely spot along the way, or locate a nice nest to hold an egg near home.

Cheers,

This is great.

Gail: Good job! I'm looking forward to an extended trip report!

MapMaster: Bring it, baby! Pittsburgh is a righteous destination by me! Or any of Canada in between!

(No, stop, Squidmark! You freakin' loser, you've already snagged the tag three times, probably just to keep up with EC! Never mind that you went to college in the 'burg and need just one more little excuse to head out that way ...)

Ditto on the Squidmark comment. As they say... timing is everything. Wicked nice of the Mainers to help you out with miss eggy. As any Maine expat... we miss it. The SMIBs will be riding by end of August. Translab trip . May take the stud mill road back for more dirt and crash at my Dad's place in Augusta.

You went up that road on THAT bike?

I am impressed. Sorry I didn't didn't get to meet you!
Have to say I thought the tag would stay a little longer.

In case you missed how it is on a sunny day.

Sorry, Gail. Thought it would, too but couldn't NOT let a fellow TORer in on the fact that the NA TOR was just up the hill from him.

MZ and I did a photo op there yesterday just for fun when we arrived. Tweren't gonna move it though.

Thank you, the VFR is not bad on dirt or gravel as long as it's not too deep and loose. It absolutely sucks in the mud though and I can't begin to describe the terror of riding it over sand.

EC and the others were afraid that it would sit too long .
Easiest tag run I've ever done even with the gravel - less than 1/4 mile - the grass almost grabbed me pulling out of the camp area though.
The weather at the camp was fine, but it must lie in a nice little rain shadow, cause everywhere else SUCKED! I went by a lot of unseen scenery on my way there and back.
I'll have to go back sometime to check it out when this thing called the sun is about.

So I'm getting to know this fellow a little bit (lots more history to read up on). He/she (hard to tell gender of an unhatched ovum) is a bit of a hardboiled character, but a great drinking companion. Doesn't drink much, listens to my lies (I mean stories) w/o interruption, and doesn't eat peanuts in bed. All in alll, a good egg.

ps
btw, who's chief pin?
An ex-mmc(ss) nuc' is asking

Nuc' is only half a word, the other half isn't 'lear.

It is EOD3MC's chief pin. Now that I think of it, I really don't know what rate he was...
