My apologies if that wasn't clear in my original post. We got the call about my father-in-law at about 1 AM. We were pulling out of the driveway for a drive to southwest Florida a little over an hour later. About 700 miles later, we parked at my mother-in-law's at about 2 PM.

I don't see your point here.

I agree that the mascot should move around via motorcycle -- even though there isn't really a rule to that effect. I didn't want to hold up the game, so I broke the implied rule. I coulda not mentioned it, but that's not who I am.

I agree. So I picked up the egg yesterday morning and will place it this afternoon by motorcycle.

I wasn't happy to place it by car. I wasn't happy to hold up the game. (I had mis-remembered the timeframe posted about how soon the mascot should be placed as being about a week instead of the "week or two" that is stated in the OP.) The egg will be placed today -- a little over two weeks since I picked it up. I'm moving it to satisfy my own dissatisfaction with the car placement.

In the end, Eggy had a little Florida vacation while I dealt with some family matters.

Dyno dropped it in Langston. That's where I picked it up. What would have been the point of picking it up if I wasn't going to move it?

Quit whining and go get the damned egg!
Thanks, Dave.

Eggy's in the Sumter National Forest

Eggy is camped out in the woods about 30 paces behind this sign in the Sumter National Forest.


Here are the coordinates for where the motorcycle is parked in that picture.


Here's the sign.




See the slim tree trunk that's right above the hyphen in the picture below? Walk to it.


When you get to that skinny little cedar, look to your right front and you'll see Eggy's resting place.




Here's an arrow-less version of the photo.




Move the pieces of wood and uncover Eggy.


The road that Eggy is on is a dirt road. That sign is about 1.2 miles from pavement if you take Secession Street out of the town of Abbeville. The other dirt routes are longer. All of them are pretty tame Forest Service roads with some rutting in places. I have taken my wife's low-slung car on all of the dirt that you would possibly take to get to the sign/tag location.


Go get Eggy!

Chris

Been a looooooong time since I've been in that part of SC. And I did the Dempster on a Wing pulling a bunkhouse in '99, so dirt isn't a problem for me. 2,298 miles from San Diego. Nice recovery Chris.

Thanks, Mac.

You know, you could pick up Eggy and then join us for our Upstate SC ADV dinner Wednesday evening. About 45.5 hours from now.

I volunteer at the San diego Zoo and I'm on for the next week, then it's Thanksgiving, but look out after that!!! That's if noone has picked him up by then.
