. That's interesting.. My speedometer quit and my engine lite came on a couple of miles after I left the Swamp Fox burial site. I rode it home like that. You got the egg from the same site and having bike problems too.
That place was CREEPY.

That's the place. Out in the middle of nowhere. I got there just before dark. Took a few pictures and hid eggy. Hoot owls talking all around. Rode back to Pawleys Island in the dark on mostly 2 lane roads with deer watching me go by. A mile or so from the site my engine started running rough. The speedometer stopped working and my engine lite would flicker on/ off.
I liked the place tho. Very remote. Wouldn't mind going back and camping out in the woods.
No people noise. Just wildlife and ghost.

The Swamp Fox after dark..

I paid a visit to the swamp fox during the day. I can't report any issues with the bike following. I guess someone doesn't like visitors after dark?

JR's crazy riding plan has now become clear.
What are there? 4 tags at the lighthouse?
We should send 4 of our finest warriors east
To retrieve them. Then scatter them to the 4 points
of the winds north, south, east, & west.
Which 4 among us should we send!

Well, I'm in, but only in the fair weather retrieval category. Not going to do 500+ miles in the 30s. And I'm not sure you can send one much to the east of its current location.

An outside chance for me next weekend, but I'm thinking some long distance tagger(s) may get there before then!!

Can't move any very far east without going way North. While I'd like to ride up to Maine, not in February!!!

Well, technically the ocean is the eastern boundary, so you could at least move it a couple hundred feet east without first going north.

You are right about the east. Could just walk out on the beach and bury it in the sand at the high tide mark. I've got ocean front property for sale near there. You can only see it at low tide tho.. How about Carolina, Puerto Rico? Is that farther east? It would be warm anyhow.

I'm out. I haven't found the problem with the Harley speedo yet.
Worked on the house all day puttin trim around the windows and brick in the garage.
We've been in the house 12yrs and haven't finished it yet.
Next weekend she wants me to install a hot tub! Jeez!
