You're really creeping me out with that "my precious" thing.

YOUR PRECIOUS?

MINE NOW!
Hyyyssssssssss!
He's on the move again. His empty overnight nest



Ready to ride with the shopping bag Joe left for him, Ditch Witch orange.



But first stop for lunch, when in Oklahoma you have to stop at a Braum's dairy and ice cream store, they have great hamburgers.



And then on the Seaba Station on Route 66 to check out some old bikes, that Cushmans for sale BTW, tag says $1300.



Inside to take his turn on an old board racer



Standing on the pegs of an original Elsinore 250



More later.

Great job Bill!

I wondered if I had given enough clues!

That roadside park has no name!

Well I found the tree from Ohio, so I think the clues were sufficient.

Looking forward to more travels.

Went straight to it, rode up 77 from Guthrie.

Where were you? I was at Braum's before 12:30, saw lots of Ditch Witch folks but no Joe.

Eggy has landed

Went for a ride with eggy this morning and left him beside the road, Route 66 to be exact. He has spent a lot of time olong Route 66 this summer so now another visit. This time in Oklahoma, just east of Arcadia, home of the Round Barn and Pop's.

First we stopped to take a look at the Round Barn


Then on to Pop's about 1/2 mile down the road.


Inside cozying up to some of the pop bottles, there are thousands of these inside.


Then back east of Arcadia about 4.2 miles to eggy's camp site. He is camped out a few yards east of here.
On the north side of the road.



Eggy with all his stuff spread out in front of the fireplace



A lot of tourists stop here and nose around so eggy decided he would be safer a few yards east, just past the power pole. The fence you see is around the old building, it is open so people can check out the building and walk around it some. It is ok to be on either side of the fence here, just not a little farther into the field.



Back in the brush right in the center of this picture there is a fallen log, he is behind it.
GPS N35 39.617, W 97 16.411 will put you at the fence on that white spot.



Closer shot, you can just see the log in there, go to the big end of the log and look behind it.




Eggs is hiding under some sticks right against the back of the log


GPS N35 39.617, W 97 16.411 will put you at the fence right in front of eggy's log.
Should be fairly easy to find.
Then back to Pop's for a Buffalo Burger

Funny thing, if you go to street view in google maps there is an 18 wheeler parked in front of this place.

One more thing

There used to be a sign posted on the Rock building telling it's history, it is gone today so I had to get a copy from my son.
Interesting reading.

Nothing says you can't move it again?

I was going to move it farther but I had an endurocross race to go to.
