Ace is MIA

At the mounds, Ace is gone. Did anyone else pick him up?

Wasn't me. I almost went yesterday afternoon, but it's a place I ride pretty regularly so I opted to let y'all come get it.

Was the stuff covering ACE still in place, or had it been removed?

There were some leaves in the hollow stump and some bark off to the side.

He generally posts up right away that he got the tag and follows up with photos after getting home.

I've thought about calling him today, but didn't want to spoil it for him in case he got it.


Babarnette, ya'll didn't pass a little old guy on a red KLR on the way home did you (he would have been smiling from ear to ear)?

Brucing is part of the game - sometimes an ugly part.

I just got home, that ride is much longer than it looks on the map. I'm gonna wait for stewarrd to post his pics and claim the tag since it was his idea to go. The wind was gusting pretty good and blowing me all over the road the whole way back.

The Ace Adventure

Well got up this morning in the rescue mode. Me and a friend left early in the brisk weather, boy did it fell good to have the wind in my face.
Made it thru some terrible traffic and had first stop at Babar's house to pick him up for the great adventure. Stopped by PBTP got coffee and gas, back on the road again! (sounds familiar). After about 30 mins on the trace I remember why I don't like it!! lol Half way there and had to make a coffee dump, all good, think Babar was asleep when we made the turn, just saying. Finally made it to the Owls Creek Mound and spotted ace's stump right away, hello Ace we are here. OH NO Ace was AWOL, we looked up and down and all around, No Ace. Don't know what misfortune has been be stoled on poor Ace.
First Stop

Coffee dump


THE MOUND THE MOUND

Ace's Hiding place

Something looks a mist!!!
Ace is AWOL thats for sure!

If Ace is AWOL I will try and find a replacement so the tag can go on. Guess we will have to have come up some type of service for poor ole Ace!!

Thanks to Babar and Pat for the company and in this case witnesses!!!
And Babar you are right it was WINDYYYYYYYYYY
