I was going to leave Egg a couple of times, once at the end of the road and the other at Fort Jackson but I did not. Egg maybe going home to KCMO.

Egg traveled these last few days. A stop in Breaux Bridge to fight a snake:



Then St. Gabriel Church, the oldest church, 1776, in the Mississippi River Valley.



Something hatched but the Egg is still intact.



We checked out a few plantations.





And then went to New Orleans to meet a niece for dinner. While I dined Egg rested in luxury.



The next morning we left NO as fast as possible but noticed motocross at the Superdome.



Headed south following the Mississippi River. First stop was Fort Jackson:





Stopped by the jail that was used after the fort was active.



As far as Egg could go along the Mississippi River:



Headed up river. Crossed on another ferry.

Egg traveled up river for a little the next day.

We stopped at Port Hudson, nicknamed Fort Desperate. This was the last Confederate strong hold along the Mississippi.





From here Egg went West towards Texas stopping in DeQuincy, LA



Egg ended up in Austin, TX at Little Woodrow's:




Egg is now in Kansas City. I will place it as soon as I can.

Just checking in...

I just checked in to see how eggy was doing since the time we spent together up here in Michigan.

While he was here last fall he kept predicting that the weather would not get cold this winter even though the weather folks kept saying it was going to be the coldest and snowiest winter on record. I figured he was just trying to stay here is all so it was all dismissed as poppycock. Turns out he was right! This has to be the warmest and driest winter I can remember. Hope it lasts another month...

Egg update

Egg is in Kansas City, MO. I hoped to place Egg last weekend however my bike needed a part that did not make it to the shop in time. I should be able to hide Egg this weekend.

I did not place the Egg while I was traveling in TX and LA because I wanted to do a little customizing. Egg is covered with names so I did not want to overwrite anyone. I added my personal geocoin to the container.





I used only one bolt so my coin could be twisted so geocachers can "discover" the coin and so others could see the Rounders sticker.

Is there a map of where eggy has been that I'm missing? I'd be happy to grab it and take it with me to the great white north for a while...

There was a USB drive with eggy that had locations of where he has been, not sure if it still is. I might have a copy on my laptop if you want it.

A spreadsheet with a history log was on the thumb drive when I had it in Michigan. The locations were up to date at that time.

I placed Egg. I don't recall seeing the file of where the Egg has traveled. Please send the file to me and if Egg is not picked up, maybe reload it on the flash drive.
