As best as I can tell, until Nutzy finds a new home, yes.

I have a sneaking suspicion that your "WAYYYY North" is in the area I regard as "WAYYYY Down South"[1]. He's got a good idea where he wants to go next, we're just working out the details. It will definitely be a new state for him.

[1] anything below the 45th Parallel is "Down South", anything below about Concord, NH is "WAY Down South".
I'm on the north coast of Ohio, 'bout 5 miles from the shore of Lake Erie....
I used to live "North of Richmond va." and just added the " Wayyyyy" part when I moved.

New Tag

Nutzy has found his new home.

I didn't want to make Egg and Nutzy suffer through another day at the office, so we all got up extra early this morning to hit the road. The sky was just starting to get light as we wheeled out of the garage, so instead of heading inland, we rode out to the ocean to watch the sunrise. The camera in my phone sucks, so I didn't bother trying to take pictures.

The breeze off the water was so nice we decided to head up the coast instead of going to the drop site we had planned for, which turned out to be the right call. Beautiful weather, beautiful views, zero traffic. The roads aren't terribly exciting, but you can't have everything--where would you keep it?

On to the tag!

The tag shot:



and a clarification shot:



Now, we get to the wrinkle, I forgot that I'd taken my "work" phone charger with me on my trip, so when I got to the office with a half-dead battery after riding around taking all the photos, uploading them caused the phone to power off for low battery. I'd managed to get enough of the photos out to post the NA Tag, but the not for this one, so posting had to wait until I got home.

That gets to the second wrinkle. I took a shot with Nutzy in his hiding spot, and Egg saying goodbye, but when I finally got the photos out of my phone, I noticed a problem:



You can see Eggy, but Nutzy is hiding too well! The tag isn't too far from home, so I decided to go back and take a photo that Nutzy was visible in:



It was close to sunset, so I hung around long enough to get a shot with the light burning:



Nutzy is hiding in the guardrail visible in that photo, next to my helmet. There are a few gaps in the guardrail, this is the one closest to the gate blocking access to the lighthouse itself.

I've edited the post to add the link to the full-size version of that picture, in case anyone does want to read it. Locating the site should be really easy, I left the geotags in on all of the photos!

Thanks! I think Nutzy should definitely cross (at least) NH and ME off his list while he is in the area.

Is the chain shot his new hiding spot?

Broken fingers transcribe the more lucid ramblings of the deranged mind.

Nutzy is at the base of the sign post on the left next to a rock under the leg of the sign. Magnets and his papers are there too.



Nutzy saw that chain when we stopped for lobster. He was swooning over the nut.

Thanks to ruafox for the additional links.

This is my second time I have had nutzy. Read some where around post 112. Yesterday was a little more about moving the little guy than taking him out. No drinks when nutzy is on the bike. 460 miles for the grab. I have all day to head back through Vermont to Western NY.

Thanks to the game for a 1,000 smile trip.

Bump

Nutzy and I stopped at this place for lobster on route 1. I don't recommend it. Potatoes were cold. Lobster pie was good. Kinda pricy for what i got.



This is where the big chain, anchor and NUT were that Nutzy was smitten over.




Just look at the gleam in his eyes!
