That's my place of business, you only see about 1/10 of the whole thing in that pic. There's also, tablesaws, a metal lathe, shaper. Mr. Egg got a tour of everything.

Tag!

With temps dropping and winter on the way, Mr. Egg is excited to be on his way to sunny Florida.
I hope to get some good action shots of Mr. Egg taking in the sites on the way.

Holy crap!!!! Were you in my shadow???

I had orginally planned to go NE with it but after looking at the weather coming up, I had a feeling that it might get socked it for too long so south I went.

Good decision Boatman, and Mr. Egg is very happy about the upcoming trip south. Thanks for keeping the game moving right along.

That tag location was Lake Tiorati in Harriman State Park, NY. Good choice.

Well, Mr. Egg had a long day and is tired of telling me of his adventures.

He likes the loft bed since it gives him a rare view of the stars.

Fantastic! The egg isn't going to get stuck in the snow!

Boatman, great job moving it South for the relay!

I was gonna try for the tag, but knew I didn't have the time to move it South.

Danny, great job, and have a great trip moving the egg! Maybe even Key West? And then it could be moved West, even to California!

I just went back and read the posts regarding the failed attempts to retrieve Mr Egg up on the hill. I hope I didn't offend anyone with me Goldwing/bald tires comment. Dirt is my thing and I have knobbies in the KTM so when I get to the dirt it's like I'm on a RallyMoto stage.

Looks like I made the correct choice in going south, supposed toget 2-4" of snow today. Time to stud up some winter tires I guess.

Go Digiamo!!!

Mr. Egg here.

Thank you very much, Mr. Boatman, for heeding Dannys plea to bring me close to NYC so I can catch the express to Florida. Turns out he was ready to roll as soon as that Harriman post arrived since yesterday was the only time he could get the tag. He's a busy bee, running around like a chicken without a head packing stuff for the trip.
He seems nice but those cats keep rolling me all over the floor.
After a wonderful night in the skylit loft I can see that the stars are aligned for a great trip. Anything to get away from those damn cats.

I always wanted to go to Florida and feel the warm sun on my pale shell.
Maybe I'll get a tan.

I am forever in your debt and thanks also for all those new talents you trained me to do. I doubt I'll need those skills on this trip but hey, you never know.


Singed,
Mr. Egg

Hey Boatman. My eggo was only slightly brused but after retreating from the tower tag without Mr. Egg, I felt I was ready for a dig or two.
Thanks for the appology even though you didn't direct it at me.
I will be getting a more suitable offroad/tour machine such as a Wee-Strom after I break 200k miles on the ST.

For now I am glad I have the ST1100 even with her 194k miles on the clock, especially for this trip.

Let me know when you want to do the Haul road. I wouldn't mind doing it again but not on the ST a second time.

No hard feelings about the Goldwing comment. I did get a laugh as it seemed to apply at the time... to the core.

Yeah, I gathered that.

Very cool line of work. Looks like you do the whole deal, woodwork, engine, upholstery, etc. ? Love the shape of those classic wooden powerboats...
