About the mascot thing. I did not set a mascot in place but I don't see that it precludes someone else from doing so in the future.

I liked the egg but it seemed more about the egg than about the ride and to me it is all about the ride So the next tagger or the next one after that shoul feel free to choose a mascot. I will run with it. But if any of you all get too attached I will also make snide remarks. Heck I might even make snide remarks any way


One moe thing. I checked the hiding place in IL just in case. I found this. And it almost became the new mascot. I left it behind at the store to avoid the temptation

I just purchased a virgin marble egg, in the event that I make a grab soon, and no one else has decided to insert a mascot of their own.
Like the idea of a rusty can Yankee Dog, as who would steal that? You could plant it in plain view too!

That can was there when I put the egg there.

I never really considered the can (for long). I mean, someone was likely to sand blast the rust off and powder coat the damn thing or something. What fun would that be.

Damn. Now I want to go grab the thing and powder coat a vienna sausage can or something for a mascot.

I checked the rules. Whats the time frame on posting the new tag after a grab.

A stone egg has no more intrinsic value than the rusty can...until it begins to mysteriously move about the continent gaining power through distance and experiences with the FF carriers, just as 'Our Precious" did.
It is this mystical power and perhaps the FF signatures that grabs FF's and lures them into the crime of eggduction, not concerned with the consequences that they, as Gollum, will suffer if holding too tightly to this powerful symbol.

Any mascot, even a tin can, will gain the drawing power of riding miles, hence seduce the ill will of a very small minority of us.

I am for a mascot non the less, even if it is a rusty can. There is no stopping the magic of NA-TOR.

Thanks for playing along. It's been and continues to be a great game*, but remember... it's just a game.

See rule 5.... If you are up front and posting pictures and keeping everyone informed you are given lots of rope....have a great adventure

#5 Read the Rules, understand the intent of the game. Quality not Quantity. If you want to tag a stop sign at the corner of "I'm impatient" and "Hurry Up" roads just to up the tag count, play a local game instead.. There are no rules that say you can't play more than one game at a time, so if this one sits for a week or two while the stars align for a big move, then so be it.. Obviously don't sit on it for weeks on end if you have no plans to actually take it somewhere though

There is no hard and vast rule on this. As KJH said its quality over quantity. However I would rather see someone drop it at the end of their drive way than sit on it for six weeks.

The idea of this tag is to move distances, cross state lines, country boundaries so if your driveway is in a different state then that's a good place to tag.
