Feb 1, 2009. The game began with NO mascot.

March 7, 2009. Blockhead was introduced as the first mascot.

Blockhead went out of the game when in a location that could not be accessed at night and somebody tagged the closed gate. We got a new mascot.

On 5/23/09, Eggy was introduced by amadvikingjr in Post 486. It was not without controversy, just like now. For a while we had a chicken, duck, Blockhead was re-introduced, and there was a replacement chicken. This was CycleJohn on 5/27/09 while multiple mascots rode together:


It was getting to take up too much room and controversy. A note was added to the bag for the next person to delete a mascot and that's how we got down to Eggy.

Eggy disappeared in 2013 and while having a mascot for 4 years was cool, Eggy was not the point of the game. In fact, anybody making the tag can at any point remove or put in a new mascot. Just like losing a dog, you will never find an exact replacement, so I'd prefer to see something new and different. Somebody just needs to tag the spot and introduce a new mascot. Make it a plastic Buddha or purple dinosaur for all I care.

Please just get the game back in gear.

I'm heading west tomorrow night. All I need is a location and I can pick up Cosmo. However, since RDV is going on, I doubt I'll be riding to Moonshine for a Bruce shot.

I don't understand your question. The Tag is in IL. The address has been posted a couple of time.

H20rider told a few inmates that he dropped the egg in TN, but he never posted the photos of the drop, nor the grab for that matter. If the egg is in TN and I can get an exact location, I'm willing to forgive the lack of photos and just get Cosmo so we can get back to playing.

Of course, if someone posts a Bruce shot before I could get the egg, then my rescuing Cosmo would mean nothing. But it seems apparent that nobody wants to ride to Illinois.

All we know fur sur, Kreis dropped the egg at the top of hill on a dirt track not too far from Nashville. No further info available. No contact with him in over a week. Sorry I can't get ya any closer.

Oh, and he said he did the drop on his ST1300. Knowing Kreis, anyone who actually goes after the egg should plan on using a dirt bike.

More info when I get it...

Maybe he is a good rider, but he is not very good at tagging!

Hyperbole ?

This really feels like I have entered the "Twilight Zone".


Hyperbole seems to have taken hold of this thread.

Don't need a dirt bike, we're not going after the egg on some hill in Tennessee unless this Kreis "H2O" guy posts a tag and a drop. We're going after a tag at the Moonshine Cafe.

So the fictitious tag in Tennessee is now off the plate, and we are all now suppose to grab the tag at Moonshine Cafe?

Fair warning: if this sits for another three weeks or so, I'm going for it.

Cosmo was the topic of many a discussion at RDV. It is a shame to see this game take a shit yet again. We had 187 riders there, most of which could have moved Cosmo a long way, but the consensus was that everyone wanted the egg, not a ride to Moonshine for a Bruce shot and a new mascot.

On the flip side, there are a whole lot of ADVers ready to pounce on the tag if this asshat ever posts a location.

Before going 100's of miles out of my way, I want to confirm that a picture of my bike in front of the Moonshine Store is all I need to grab the tag?
