So, less talk and more getting of the tag!


Sorry Doc...I'd love to go grab the tags but I can't right now.
I'm just trying to offer some assistance to those who can

Way to go Bwolf
BwolfThe Duck is now safe and warming by the fire!

Get Him Before The Snow Flies!

For you frequent NJ dirt road riders, this might be a familiar site. Seeing the condition of this tractor, it's a good thing it's a "Lightfield"....Otherwise it might be a lot of work. The tractor has been sitting so long, it shows up on Google satellite shots.

A nice sunrise shot.



The Duck



It's only going to get warmer....so go get him



Have Fun! Bruce

A tractor, a sunrise, a field...

Sorry, Bruce, but that doesn't narrow it down much.

The challenge today will be to keep from freezing. Maybe a nice clue?

p.s., thanks for getting up early and going out in the cold to keep the game moving!

We were 1 "block" from there on Tuesday-- and I was lamenting the loss of the previously unpaved road we had just traversed.

I was just thinking about that...they call it "progress"...I beg to differ.

Bruce's Bruce Bruce

Headed to the tag spot, and found a combine parked in a field. Thought it was the tag, so headed up a very slippery and muddy little farm path. The front Tourance turned into a slick, and the adventure began:



And, to boot, it was the wrong vehicle! Not even a Bruce Bruce:



Then, I turn around and see that BMWRudy is stuck in the mud back by the street. He and I then find the real tractor tag, and he got to rescue the little ducky:

Bruce Bruce with Rob

And, guess who I bump into just as I'm heading home? My buddy STBob!

So the two of us got the second Bruce:



Bruce, very nice tag, and a pretty nice day for a ride in the country. Probably the last of the good days to ride for a while!

Bruce,

Rudy should be posting his "GOT" photos pretty soon. Don't know if he's placing a tag on the way home.

Doc got a little muddy, then we headed for the duck.



Got the Duck.



He was down this fine road.

I hope a dirt pull off counts! If not, I'll do it again!The new location of the duck is about a mile west of here.



There is this place.





Where you can one of these.



This is looking East



Behind the truck is this.



And little ducky is living in one of the tires.



The truck could go home for the night in which case use the east view or the cement blocks as markers. GO SAVE THE DUCK!!!!!

Super Adventure!

Great Job!

Looks like you guy's had some fun. I'll have to go back and check out that combine sometime. Seeing all the mud you guy's were playing in makes me think now that it was a good thing I was there when it was 15 deg and frozen

Mud-fest!

Rudy, I really should have gotten a picture of you doing burn-outs in that mud hole! Looks like you got more mud on your bike, and you didn't even fall down like I did!



Grown men playing in the mud! Such fun!
