Update

As promised, Mr. Egg is in Ash Grove Missouri


Since it's Sunday. I took Eggy to a local country church just south of Ash Grove


I then took Mr. Egg down Route 66 to Paris Springs Missouri (just a few miles off I-44 between Joplin and Springfield).


I spoke with Gary who owns this 100 year old service station. He gave me permission to store Eggy in the cab of this old oil truck


This is where he is located today.

Paris Springs Missouri

N 37 degrees 11.662
W 093 degrees 40.758

Gary has his Route 66 Filling Station display open daily. He is a very friendly guy and said nobody ever opens the truck but was ok with my placing it there and ADV opening the cab to retrieve. The cache can be found at the base of the drivers side seat.

Let me know if you have any questions or comments.

Thanks for allowing me to be a part of this fun.

Way cool, Patrick,,, hope ya get the chance to read back thru the thread and see Eggy's prior adventures...

Apologies, folks... I tried to post pics on Tuesday but the thru-put at McD's just wasn't up to the task... and today is the first wi-fi I've had as I been traveling. Some of youse know what that is...

So, here's the "old" location pic at Mormon Lake...
https://picasaweb.google.com/1140841...69240525557874

...and the new location in Winslow, AZ...


Six picture album is here.


(Okay, what am I not getting here? The "image" tag isn't displaying the pic tho I know I've done this before. Hmmmmmmmmmmm.)

The problem is the URLs you've put in your IMG tags aren't URLs for images, but rather goofy javascript generated pages that include an image along with a whole bunch of non-image crap. You need to link to the image file itself, like {IMG}https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-gqM2KUcaC1w/T-hqhGkm0HI/AAAAAAAASAM/I_25UxEZdsU/s820/IMG_7094.JPG{/IMG}:

Google doesn't make that easy to do, as best as I can tell you've got to open each page in your browser, right click and select "open image in new tab", and extract the correct URL from the address bar for the new tab. Way too much work IMO, so I'd recommend hosting your images elsewhere. Smugmug & Photobucket both seem to work well here.

On.mobile browsers that is the only way I have found to use Picassa, however from a desktop browser it provides several choices for imbedding an image. Overall I've been pleased with the free picture hosting service.

I luve Eggy's new "parking spot", very creative...

And thanks for the Google Picasa tips, guys,,, I use the "image location" url a lot for other stuff, will use it here from now on...

ST-Owners let's ya upload from yur own 'puter and then stores the shots, that's a good thing tho it takes a lot of memory. Down side, other folks gotta be subscribed there to see'em. I'm real happy with Picasa's service, and it lets me upload once and use the album url to let folks see'em from lots of different forums.

Hope Eggy stays happy,,, I'll carry him again soon.

I can't believe no one has came to get this guy. I thought being so close to I-44 would be a plus.......

That's what ya get when ya hang out with a bunch of desk bound keyboard jockes, Patrick. This thread is long on keystrokes but short on miles...

(I gotta add, I'm in North Georgia right now, headed up toward the NC/TN line today to move the STOC National Tag which is currently at Deal's Gap Resort... Not sure where I'll move it TOO, but it's gonna move. Two more days of freedom before I'm back in the harness, figuratively speaking... Saturday, back to Moonshine for 'burger #13. Here's a link to my moon burger album for 2012.

Then on to my son's place in Aurora, IL, followed by Minneapolis, then Watertown, SD and Spearfish, SD before heading home. I won't have an opportunity to go get Eggy again this trip so someone needs roll some miles. If yur not burning gas and killing bugs, yur not having fun.
