Damn Dan, I'd hate to see what you call a Big Pickle!

You're right though, you did figure it was Old Blighty.

My sister took this pic when my Mom visited her. Truth be told, I'd have guessed Paris cause of the 5 story older buildings mixed in w/ "skyscrapers".
I know Paris better than London. I'd read about the little Gherkin when it was being built, something about the shape reducing the wind tunnel effect on its surroundings.

On to more germane matters: When are you going to snatch the EGG Dan??

So, not a total newb here, but I'll be damned if I can follow along as to where the clues for the damn egg are... 3 pages of ride reports and nothing labeled "NEW TAG" is HERE IS NEXT TAG...


anyone point me to the post that has the clues?

Damn!
I was so glad to see someone post..... got my hopes up.... then saw you're all the way down in Atlanta.
(BTW I spent some very enjoyable time snake hunting near Atlanta in Locust Grove a number of years back)


Before I respond to your query, pls allow me to apologise on behalf of Canadian ADVRiders for the Toronto area's dismal showing.
I expected better. This is why I am an expat.
Both ULELUZE and myself have posted notice on the Regional Forum (GTA Riders Merged MegaThread)...
Perhaps some other Inmates could goad them on a bit?
Maybe even use strong language??
If worst comes to worst when work dies down a bit I'll bring the EGG down to Niagara so the Yanks can play again.
We are obviously not worthy.

Originally the TAG is set in Post #914, with the location of the EGG in
Post #915. After some whining from a few Inmates who confused TAG with BEACHED EGG, Yankee Dog set them straight on that point. When I saw that folks where flailing (yeah, it was a tough one --but I was fully prepared to post hints) I followed up w/ Post # 929:

I figured I'd provide clues if requested. That is indeed a "seawall", EVIL CLOWN, but its on one of the Great Lakes: Lake Ontario. Its well above the debris line left by the last storm, which was unusually intense, so I reckon the EGG will be fine there. Its buried under about 6" of sand.

I did post a TOR alert on the Regional Forum
(GTA Riders Merged MegaThread), but got bugger-all response so far.
Howzabout I post a few hints?

Now I just have to figure out where I'm going to take it. Is there a time limit? I'm going for a ride to a nice area tomorrow.

What's with the "extras" that are in the bag?

Do I keep and replace with something else? Like a trade-up thing where the guy in the end eventually gets a house.

Or

Do I just pass them along?

Just put the keys and title to your car in there and take out what you want. But pay close attention as the game moves on so you grab the tag when the house keys and deed are in there.

Bravo Zulu on the grab, Z1Krob. No time limit on the new placement as the NA tag is about the longer hauls. Can't wait to see where you take it.

The trinket is all that needs to move on. The extras are yours to keep. The choice is yours for including anything new (car or house keys would certainly get a quick turnaround of inmates scrambling to grab the tag), nothing at all, or passing along whatever is currently there.

Z1Krob-- YOU DA MAN!!!



In response to your questions:

I seem to recall a 48 hr time limit, but when I checked there's no mention on the First Post or the links therein.
I must be thinking of the Big Apple TOR, which is a little more urban and real fast.
As to the loot bag, I didn't need any of it or know what the hell to do w/ it so I just treated it as if it were a Hot Potato.
I say do what you want. Its a free country.

Z1Krob--so glad you could come out to play!!!!

Sorry, I took it North instead.



You'd think a town with a brewery would have a bigger Jail.

Now go to the right of the Jailhouse and walk along side. About 10 feet back on the right you will find:



The package is buried underneath that little pile of rocks right behind the broken tennis ball. In case the ball is gone you can use the barrel that is on the other side of the fence as your marker.

It's not as far as I wanted to take it due to a late start and some mechanical problems in the group I was riding with. I ended up about 30kms short of my goal of burying the egg on a beach near Collingwood. But what can ya do. 13hrs on a DRZ seat was enough for one day. lol

Now....


























GO GET IT!!!

Nice tag

I figured it was the Coby Jail but you mentioned a brewery. Lots of beer drinkers in Coby but no brewery that I know of. So, I blew off my day and rode to Creemore in search of North America's smallest jail!








Here it is on Google Maps

http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&sour...62&z=8&iwloc=A


Good location. By the time I got there, I had worked up a pretty good thirst!






Standby for a new tag. I see that the NA Tag O Rama is about longer haul stuff. If you guys can wait a week, I will be venturing on a 10 day ride. I would rather find a nice place along the route rather than somewhere close to home.
