I was out for a ride today when my phone rang. "Self," I thought, "this must be some sort of emergency, everyone likely to call me knows I'm out riding!", so I stopped to answer it. Imagine my surprise to hear my friend Egg on the line!

He says to me, "Volta, I'm in a really rough spot right now. You'll never believe what that last guy put me through! First, he bragged about how he was keeping several of my cousins captive in his kitchen, then he brutally murdered two of them and tried to make me eat them! Then he dragged me out to the middle of nowhere and tried to push me off a bridge! Luckily, I was able to escape into the woods and hide until he finally left. Now I'm stuck out here, freezing my nuggets off in this wind, any chance you can come pick me up?"

"Of course," I say, "what are friends for?", and quickly detour to pick him up:



Since we were in the neighborhood anyway, we decided to run up to VT to grab the NNE tag:



Then, cold and hungry, we started looking for a diner or something to get some food and warm up. Sadly, all the diners we came across were closed, so we ended up at Nick's, across from the Miss Bellows Falls Diner. Of course, this being a bar and Egg not having any ID on him, we had to keep a low profile so there aren't any food photos.

Warmed up and with full bellies, we went back out to the bike, where the puddle I'd parked next to had skimmed over with ice. We had a quick discussion and agreed that getting home quickly seemed like the best idea, so we crossed the river into NH and followed NH123 into MA where we could pick up some quick roads home.

Once inside, we had a couple hot drinks to warm up



before Egg spotted the good whisky



All I can say is his trials these past few days must have really took their toll on him, he passed out on the couch after a single dram!



... and now it is time for me to follow his lead.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Egg and I joined a bunch of other bikers for a great dinner:



After all that food and drink, we agreed the best course of action was to just go home to sleep it off.

new tag



clue:



This is also the current tag in the MA and Northern New England games.

Between engine trouble and a flat tire, I ran into a lot of trouble on this one, so was not able to move it as far as I would've liked. Anyway, a few bike lengths north of my bike in the tag shot you'll find a small section of the wall that has collapsed:



Egg is hiding here, in the collapsed section:



I helped him with a little more cover from the elements by piling another rock against the one he's hiding under:



and left a clue to make him a little easier to find:

Tag.NA + Tag.MA + Tag.NE

The line of white lights following the mountain top contour is Mt Wachusett Ski Resort. The top of the Fruitland's sign is just visible in the dead center of the shot. See below for mascot shot, it was too cold for full disclosure.





I should be able to get this moved tomorrow, at least as of right now I'm thinking of seperating the tags vs setting them all at the same place unless there is too much of an outcry

Agreed Danny & it's 25F in Maryland this morning.

I'd hate to be the one known as

Separate them. Otherwise they'll just accrete into one big blob and you might find yourself the recipient of the ...



... award. (Hi, Mike! )

You guys don't quite understand...New Englanders ride year round. Granted there are days that we drink our spiked hot cocoa and watch the snow fall, but that is all just a plot to get back out there after the snow is done.

I have ridden at least on day every month since I got my bike April of last year. I expect to continue with this. Mr. Egg won't get snowbound. However, I do think it is time he went South or West for the winter. I just hope he comes back and visits some day.

What do you mean, stuck for the winter? We've got a solid month of prime riding season left this year, before the 2011 season starts with the annual NYD ride!

New Tag

And no it is not shared with any other TOR's


Cache Placement:

Find tree with two yellow stipes and signage



Go over this wall, put your back to the tree and look down



When you look down with your back to the tree you see this and look in the center of the picture, yep behind the rock standing on its edge...
