Eggy don't like Yankees. There will be another Good Ole Boy from down south to come get him, when he lites. Some will even have recipes

Sorry about the rear bearing. Do you think you might have overloaded it.
The Trans Lab is on my bucket list.

New tag

I gt stuck at home playing host to relatives for a couple of days, but made my (and Eggy's) move today.

Go to Massachusetts.

Go here:



Ride up to the top as far as you can, park and walk.

This is the tag shot:



Obviously, do this *after* you have scrounged up the totem. Here's how you do that:

Walk up to that brown tower in the last photo. It's a new fire tower with an observation deck below it. Enjoy the view from the deck. To the southeast, you can see Boston. To the north, Mt. Monadock in New Hampshire. To the west, Mount Greylock waaay out in North Adams. Birders will be looking for hawks.

Anyway, look for the building with the white and orange antenna towers, behind Mr. Ugly in this shot:



Go there:



Read the sign:



See those rhododendron bushes on the right side of the building?



Eggy and his traveling junk are hunkered down behind them, toward the back of the building:



Get him before ski season starts! They close the road at the first snow!

(Possibly useful information: Park/summit road is open during daylight hours. They may charge you $2 on the weekend - if so, take it out of Eggy's wallet or PM me and I'll send a refund to you )

Probably not so much the gear as my fat ass (although the bike has 87K on it and the bearings were original). I check 'em when I change tires - lastly in May of this year and they were fine, so who knows?

I can't figure out how to delete the reference to my Trans Lab trip from my .sig. Figure it's getting stale by now, but every time I try, I get an error message from the forum software. If you're going, go soon, before the provincial authorities pave the whole thing over (which is their plan!)

(And, in answer to your previous question: Your "directions" were fine - I had no trouble finding your tag.)

You can't insult a man's panniers then ask a favor of him. Haha!
I wish those cases were bigger, since there is so much to carry when you're camping in Canada.

Ahh, no insult intended. Im just curious how much load that thing can take. Looks like a serious set up. What is your shock spring rated for ??
