Maybe the next chauffeur can go there, Slim. Eggy is on his way this afternoon to his chosen AZ resting place.

Pics in a couple hours... (stay tuned)

Weird coincidence, fellow ADVRider I met this afternoon (HavaBusa on this site) is headed to Montana later this season. He'll be reading this so maybe he'll take up the challenge unless someone beats him to it.

Here's a map from west of Kingman to his rest stop. (You can zoom and go to street view to see the steps, but they must'a gone thru there at the same time of day as I, the glare of the setting sun kind'a washes out the landscape.

And my picasa album is all updated with the last series of pictures.

Here's a link to my SpotWalla page tracing the entire trip from 4-25 to 5-9, 2012. Eggy had a good time. Note the last six miles at the Kingman end, all ruff dirt into my back yard.

If no one picks him up in the next couple months, I can always move him again into a higher traffic zone.

Oatman or Bust.

Oh yeah, I'm just waiting for the camera battery to charge up.



I would go and do a night tag right now, but I'm afraid of all those Burro's up there.
LOOK OUT FOR THE DONKEY, HE LIKE TO KICK!
I have been to the "little oasis" before, and there were Burro tracks everywhere around it.
I hope the boss doesn't mind if I am a little late tomorrow

Dont feed the Donkey's.

I found this old picture of Oatman.
I once saw a Donkey take a dump on the front wheel of some guys Harley Bagger.
His friends were laughing about it, but he was not.
Eggy will be traveling through here soon.

Hey George

George,

It was nice to meet you and eggy Wednesday in Cool Springs.

Teresa says hi.

We're back home in LHC. We got to Oatman right when the two restaurants were rolling up the sidewalks, so we fed the jackasses then WE ate in beautiful Bullhead City!

We also met a French couple in Oatman that are here on vacation riding a Harley Dresser and traveling from LA to Chicago along Route 66.

We stayed out late and had to fight those real heavy winds that kicked up, all of a sudden.

Surprised to see that you posted those pictures so fast.


I'll check the board more often and see where you're headed.

Nice George, as many times as I've run that stretch, I've never seen those steps!

EGGY grab.

Had a nice little ride this morning. Found Mr Eggy tucked away under his rock:



He had a really nice view except is was a little hazy this morning:



And I am not making this up, but a Donkey was walking down the road right at the time I picked up Eggy.
He is to the left side of the picture. He did not walk past the bike, just turned and walked down around that guard rail.
I guess my Yellow bike scared him.



Not much activity in Oatman this morning:






I did find one local resident who was not afraid of Mr Eggy:



He is now safe in Kingman. More pictures tomorrow after work.

GEORGE, I live very close to you. I'm off Southern Ave, right behind the school. Maybe we could get together for breakfast sometime.

Wow, quick grab... expected him to sit there a while.

I had originally planned to drop him off in Valley OF The Gods above Medicine Hat, UT but my wife wanted to meet him, so...

Anyway, where to next?

Good job and good pics, Merkur Man. I'm up for b'kfast, 'long as it's oatmeal. (Still dieting, 5 lbs. to go )

Busa...
PLEASE, please, pretty please....this is a not a photo compliation place where spurious collections of photos NOT RELATING DIRECTLY TO THIS GAME are to be posted, so please, take the photoalbum on the side privatly with your pal.


this is an ADV Tag-O-Rama thread.

oh, and while I'm biotching already, I know George had a cool trip with Eggy and all, but there are just a couple rules to the game, and they are pretty simple.....and it's pretty much inferred that the photo of the drop is posted HERE, not remotely tucked into a photo album off site.


man.

Eggy Swag.

The egg pouch picture has been deleted. I'm sorry if I have offended anyone by showing its contents. My intention was to allow the past egg carriers to see if their items were still in there.

In case anybody is wondering, here is the current contents of the egg pouch. I'm not so sure that anthing else can be stuffed in the bag.

The Egg will be "dropped" next weekend at the Overland Expo, which is taking place at Mormon Lake just south of Flagstaff.
I will be there on Saturday (19th). I seem to remember that the past Tag items (I think it was Blockhead or the Chicken) have been handed over to another inmate, instead of being hidden. Do the rules allow this, what say ye? If I meet someone at the event who wishes to take up the challange, then we can take/post pictures of the hand-off. If not, then Eggy will be tucked away somewhere safe.

I will be taking Eggy to see some of the local sights around the area, until next weekend.

Merkur Man screwed with this post 05-14-2012 at 11:16 AM Reason: Deleted picture per inmates request.
