I am having a pretty fierce internal debate right now. The voice that keeps reminding me that I don't have much (just a vest) heated gear has the edge right now.

Be smart. It'll be a mutha to find the camo pouch in the rocks, leaves, and snow. (I moved here from there.) Plus, it's about a 12 hour ride for us and it'll keep. Don't know about you, but if I just had a heated vest, hypothermia can make me do stupid things.

Thumbs down Snow-bound!

We had another 18" of snow over night. There are almost 60" of standing snow in the last 22 days. 2 different snowfall records set for the month of January, including the most snowfall, in the shortest period, EVER. 27" in 13.5 hours. More snow is forecast for Sat. and Tues. This is also one of the coldest winters in years. That poor egg may not see daylight until March.

Seriously, even the MD tag is stuck at this point. Pretty rare event.

Hopefully Eggy will be moving again in a few weeks...

Got URAL!

Does anybody around there ride a 2WD URAL?
It has a nice cozy sidecar for hauling eggs around

The mascot is on the move and in good hands. Unfortunately, this is the only shot I got at the entrance to Arcadia Park.

All in all, the roads were great and I have a good long ride. The back roads still had some black ice on them in spots and I was riding nervously for a few miles.



I would have taken a picture of the bike in front of the sign but I really had to get the hell out of there. To begin with, I had already dropped the bike once, about 1/4 mile from the tag. I tried to turn off the road and its was a glacier.

So, back to the tag spot. The whole entrance was also a sheet of ice several inches thick. I had to park in the road. I ran up to the tree and found the mascot. Before I could leave, a guy in a pickup truck stopped to see if I was ok. He pulled in and almost got stuck. There wasn't ANY safe place for me to stand and get a picture. I was still a bit shaky and just got the bike rolling before I got hit or dumped it again.

Pic below was taken when I got home just before I washed it. The mascot is hanging on the right handlebar. Some road rash is visible as well. I need a new blinker and mirror.



Another pic of the new scars, just after a wash.



I haven't even looked in the bag yet and I'm quite anxious to check it all out. Finding a new tag spot will be a challenge because of all the snow. If I put it under the snow, it can melt and it will be out in the open. I'll have to get a bit creative finding a spot. I'll get moved the next day that I can safely get out there.

Think South....Think even more south than that.

Great Job, and sorry about the Katana. However, it looks like you have a backup ride (e.g KTM in the background)

I'm fine and the bike isn't bad at all. In fact, I had a guy look at it and I'm scheduled to sell it for $1500, as is, tomorrow. But have no fear, I have two more street registered bikes in the garage. They're a bit more dirt orientated, but they're fun as hell with some dualsport tires on them.

My plan is to move it within an hour's ride of NYC.

Upon inspection, that egg is pretty cool. Very well protected. I'll show that egg a good time this week and start planning the drop more seriously. I don't think there is much of a rush in February so I'll focus on quality rather than speed.

I also have a great idea for a new "goodie" for the bag. I plan on adding a small USB thumb drive to the loot. In it, I will start a text document journal or "guest book" that you can "sign" and leave some pictures or any other computer file you feel like sharing.

Since I'm adding something, I get to take something. I'm not sure what this thing is or why it should be in the bag? Is there any reason why I should leave this metal thing in there?



Other than that thumb drive, I'll add a surprise as well. Nothing major. Just small, unique and possibly useful items.
