I've missed out on this one several times. Never got beat, just never even got out the door. I've been "prepositioned" since it landed in Henderson a few days ago. As many prolific taggers as there are in the area, I was sure I wouldn't be the only one watching this closely.

Currently torn between heading to an area I've been meaning to ride since I started riding street (on a winter weekend with expected temps in the low 70s!) and sharing it with the folks I play all the local/regional games with. I'm at about 75% as far as heading towards Blacksburg with it, but that's subject to change by the end of the day.

My son got me this book for Christmas. There are 29 trips outlined in it. I'm going to see how many of them I can do this year. Might be looking to it for inspiration later on today. Eggy WILL be moved this weekend.

Question for those of you that have placed Eggy in the past:
How much do you worry about foot traffic in the area?

Hide him well enough and it won't matter?


Please don't drop him in a porta potty though. Even if you put him in a plastic bag.

Okay. Much more at ease.
Thanks.

(mental note: scratch the port-a-potty and save the plastic bag for something else).

I was really worried that the egg might be discovered between the concrete legs. He has so much history that I really felt responsible he should only be found by an ADV tagger. So I made extra sure that he was well hidden and that nobody saw me place him. Just saying.

That's about what I figured. Couple of spots I was looking at, but figure they're tourist-y enough that that might be a problem.

I'm going to watch for Eggy to see if he gets close enough. I've never seen Eggy in person.
