have passport, will ride

but, with the egg hanging on a sign in a park with clues I finally figured out, you are correct. I doubt the egg is still there. it's hanging out in the open, not hidden

it'd be a nice SS1000 for me to get there and, I-95 is a bitch but, I could bring it back to Virginny

it'd be fun at the border

customs: what's your purpose for a visit, sir?
me: going to get an egg

It's called "hidden in plain sight." Didn't you ever play "Hide the Thimble" when you were a kid? You can't see the back of the sign coming from either direction. The vegetation around the sign has been chopped off, done earlier this year from the looks of it and I can't imagine it's going to be done again until next year, if then. No one would look at the back of the sign otherwise. Plus, the number of people around there is considerably less than in, say, Times Square.



Of course, anything can happen. If it's not there when you go, go over to the park office and ask them if they know anything about it. I suppose there's a remote chance someone looked out a window at exactly the right time and saw me go behind the sign and got curious enough to investigate, and felt they had to move it.

Go anyway. Like I said in my trip report, it's a beautiful park in the middle of nowhere, a good vacation destination in itself or a good stopping point for trips farther north, and there are an endless number of logging roads in the area for those who like to explore.

Sorta related story:

Years ago, I lived in Los Angeles and met a flight attendant working for Air Canada. Can't remember her name, but we had a great time when she worked their LAX flights and she lived next to a resort area that's near of this tag. The area would be a most excellent ride for the tag. Okay, so much for the story relating to the tag.

She said several times that she would like to show me the beautiful city she lived near. Well, I was working for Lockheed and Air Canada was one of our customers. Out of the blue, my boss transfered me on a couple of weeks notice to the Air Canada office in that city. After arriving, I looked her home number up (easy back then) at the company and the phone conversation went something like this:

Me: "Hey, how's it going?"

Her (French accent): "Good. Where are you? "

Me: "I got transfered to and wondered if you wanted to still show me your beautiful city some time?"

Her (still in her beautiful French accent): "No, that can not be. And you can never call me on this number."


Major WTF and how do you spell "huh" in French???!!! We'd been casual but with a great chemistry, so did I miss something?

Shore 'nuf. I came to learn shortly after from another flight attendant that the husband worked for Air Canada, too. Ooops.

Or, coming back:

ICE officer: Are you bringing anything back from Canada?
You: Yessir, an egg.
ICE officer: What?
You: An egg.
ICE officer: That's a round, ah, rock. Not an egg.
You: Actually, it's a tag.
ICE officer: What?
You: A tag, for a Tag-O-Rama.
ICE officer: Pull over there, unpack every bag on your bike and drop your pants.

I wonder if they'd smash the little girl up into a fine powder and have it tested...
