I just don't want to foul the game holding it for to long. I figured a 6 week stent would be too long, but I guess it can't hurt to ask

From the first page:
#5 Read the Rules, understand the intent of the game. Quality not Quantity. If you want to tag a stop sign at the corner of "I'm impatient" and "Hurry Up" roads just to up the tag count, play a local game instead.. There are no rules that say you can't play more than one game at a time, so if this one sits for a week or two while the stars align for a big move, then so be it.. Obviously don't sit on it for weeks on end if you have no plans to actually take it somewhere though.

I guess you actually have to grab it before this is even an issue though...

Btw, the USA TOR is coming to NC via my trip if I can help it.

Something yellow this way comes
sitting on the EGG for a month & a half anticipating a trip (that may never happen), is'nt really conducive to having someone move it during that peiod....kinda like hoarding....
besides, taking him out and dropping it in the place Nutzy is sitting now, just makes no sense.....because you see how long he's been sitting there.....

as WB noted, a couple weeks....no big deal....a month....well, at least you asked beforehand.

I don't think JR was meaning dropping the tag where Nutzy is now, I think he meant grabbing that tag then placing both. I might be wrong.

I consider myself to have very little, if any say in this. Just pointing out the rules from Page 1 as there are a lot of folks that have been playing/following this since early on. That said, personally, I'd rather see it move around rather than being parked on a shelf or in a drawer for a month or two. It'll get out west - or wherever - eventually.

I hear ya.... but Nutzy has been hanging on the coast for 4 months now....

clearly apparent that west coast isn't conducive to active tag players....
(sorry Mac, not intending to bash ya, just making an honest opinion...
Buckeye state is under snow now, so enjoy the coast.... you comin' back here after the thaw? )

and if he ain't planning to even move for 45 days, things could unravel.....just sayin'

Do it Joyce!

It is better to ask forgiveness than permission. I can help stall.. I know an area that stuff sits.... you know my schedule.

Hell with the group around here we can move it six times by then.
I still want to take Eggy to the MX track.

I've got a friend that can throw some seriously big whips over some of the jumps up there - AND he keeps a helmet cam on. Video of Eggy strapped the the front fender of a bike sideways in the air at 30' up? It can happen. Might also be able to get him to race the Loretta Lynn's qualifier if he's still/back around in April, not to mention any number of Hare Scrambles.

Now, would Eggy rather sit on a bookshelf for a couple of months or go racing?

I'm serious about a place to stay if you need a room.
