might go to the dealership, take a test drive, and place the egg.

Might I suggest going to Capitol BMW and test driving the Husqvarna TR650. Let me know how you like it when you're done.

If you're serious about the TR, I've got a friend that just got one and can put you in touch if you want to ask specific questions.

I'm fairly certain I'll be getting one this summer. No sense in buying right now though.

Hey Jrjoyce
Damn it is good to see Eggy living life to his fullest again, and not lying under a pile of leaves waiting for a quick ride on a bike to the next pile of leaves. Go Egg! BTW very cool photos!



Job well done Eggy.

Eggy is having one more drink then he is off.

The drink is a clue for the local poachers

Where are all the trinkets and paper work that goes along with the egg pouch? It is not trash, but people sharing memories with the egg.

22 minutes, is that a record for the NA TOR ?

Cool. Could be, I'm sure. Knowing that it wasn't going to go far since he's on a dirt bike and then posting the clue of a place in the area, I'm surprised I didn't see more folks around. Actually took me 41 minutes from the time of the giveaway clue to get the full 8.1 miles from the house.

All the trinkets are still safely protected.


Including this cool new one from his jump today:


After a brief conversation with Eggy, we're thinking we are going to head northwest first thing Saturday morning to a place not far from my alma mater. Does it count as an alma mater if I didn't graduate????


If you want to stay one step ahead, look for a town nearby with an almost giveaway name for a clue.

I very seriously considered riding up to north Raleigh last night and pre-positioning myself to make a grab. I packed a bailout bag and was about to leave when I got word that i had to be at work at 5am. :(

Glad I didn't though. Bruce was on it!
