That's pretty awesome. I guess squirrels want in on the tag action?

I think we have a problem

#4 Tag mascot (i.e. blockhead, chicken, etc.) is required to clame the tag. Please post your "bruced" pictures even if the tag mascot has already been taken. Tag claims must be posted within 12 hours of the 1st "bruced" photo. In the even no official tag claim is made within 12 hours, the person with the 1st "bruced" photo gets the tag and the honor of choosing the next Tag mascot. (does that make any sense??)

This may present a problem. May need a ruling on this matter from the EGGsperts.

The only issue with rule #4 is it was designed if someone picked up the mascot and failed to post the grab.
In this case the mascot was not found initially, so rule #4 does not apply in this case.

It happened in the USA TOR so a presidence has been set.

It is my opinin that since the mascot was not stolen or lost that is should go to the mascot holder.

Had the mascot not been found then it would go to the first person to post the TAG site.

Anyone else have ideas?

He who finds it gets to keep it.. ... what else can ya do.. he's got it and he's moving with it. You want it.. go get it when it drops. What's that old rule when you get up from your seat on the coach? then some one else takes it? I can't think of it and wife can't either.. 26 and Im losing my memory.

This shouldn't even be an issue. Apparently, the egg was accidently found and moved to the sign before Augie got there and seeing as how it wasn't were it was supposed to be, he posted up the bruced photo. It was his idea to wait ten days to see if Eggy would be found. I am sure he would want to keep with the idea of the game and keep Eggy as the mascot. However, it really doesn't matter because Phideaux has the real mascot at the location it was left. So technically, it is up to him to move Eggy along to his next drop.

From where I sit, I agree. Had Augie actually placed a new tag/mascot, it would have been more of a problem, but seeing as how he's one of the more prolific taggers around this part of the country, I doubt that'll even be an issue. He covers a lot of miles and I'm sure he'll get it (again) before long.

Eggy has been dropped ever so gently somewhere high upon a hill.

But first....I sorta fixed his leak:



Eggy has moved about 250 miles from here:



You can find him here:



5300 Feet!

Here's the money shot:



Go to this location and see this sign:



Then this one....




Look down the trail and you will see these views:





The package is between those two trees to the left of the gatepost on the ground.







So this ends my weekend tag journey covering 1650 miles and involving both this and the USA Tag. Visited with some great folks, got really, really, wet and hung out with the Moran Nation some at RDV.

Happy hunting!

point of order , timeline

"Tag claims must be posted within 12 hours of the 1st "bruced" photo. In the even no official tag claim is made within 12 hours, the person with the 1st "bruced" photo gets the tag and the honor of choosing the next Tag mascot."

TimeLine

post bruced pic-5.15.13 9:25pm
Lands post of egg location-5.19.13 4:25pm
Phideaux grab pic-5-19-13 7:56am
Post said grab was made 5.16.13

Just the way I see it. No timelimit on placing new bruced tag.
Nuff said.

Lets just use this as a reminder that you can't be too careful hiding the egg. You should really be SURE the egg is hidden very well. If you think it's questionable at all, find a more remote location.

Awesome find, good eye man.

Just as important is ensuring the instructions on how to find the thing are clear, detailed and accurate.

I would be pissed if I rode some distance and was then unable to find the egg. Only to have some guy roll in days later and end up with the TAG.

Is this about a piece of rock or about the ride?

Sorry, but just sayin.

There is one more point that I would like to add, and that is if you think you are being observed while hiding the egg (ranger, tourist, psychotic raccoon or any other type of egg snatcher) it might be best to find a new secluded location.
