    Our slogan was 'piss on it and call the Navy'.

    Any underwater ordnance was theirs.

    Seriously Bruce? You gonna jump on that bandwagon.... :D

    I'll assume that anyone who would do that is either lazy, scared, or both; but that's alright, Navy has your back, unless they're in the submarine community, then they have your backside... :evil

    Got back home last night after 17 days on the road.
    A ton of stuff to catch up on. Will post some of eggy's adventures later today and will nestle it in somewhere in the local vicinity tomorrow (not enough tread left on the rear tire to venture too far at the moment).

    17 days on the road, a worn out rear tire, and not single good drop spot? :rofl

    I hate when people start bitching about the drop taking too long because someone's life is in the way, but a 17 day road trip prevented a drop? Please do unconfuzzle... :lol3

    The intent was to move the tag far (this was at the urging of the Maine ff's who told me about the tag - I think they wanted it far away so they wouldn't be tempted to spend more quality time with it :D) so bringing it back to PA was the plan from the start, it just took a while to get here. Most of the road tripping was done in the Maritime provinces. The trip was bookended by commitments to be part of motorcycle safety crews for a couple of charity fundraising bicycle rides in CT; the Angel Ride for the Hole in the Wall Gang Camp Hospital Outreach Program - benefits kids with cancer - and the Jim Calhoun Cancer Ride. After a mostly rain soaked tripped, I had a good day yesterday, but it was a long day in the saddle to get home with no desire to search out a good drop point along the way. Ya'll just have to suffer a little longer. :D

    Waiting to see the drop. Weather is great, Pittsburgh is not far and I could take a day off work without much hassle.

    Unfortunately I am a newbie rider with little adventure riding experience and no trips planned in the near future so I won't move it far if I do get ahold of it.

    Sounds like a great ride and way to move the tag :clap

    Okay, before I go back and recount eggy's adventures in the past week, I'll get the drop info posted.

    Eggy enjoys the sights of the falls at Ohiopyle, PA
    [​IMG]

    Sugarloaf Rd. just south on 381 from the falls view parking area heads up the mountain. In a few miles you'll see this. Pull in.

    The money shot:

    Where to head next:
    [​IMG]

    The view from the overlook was beautiful today
    [​IMG]

    To the right of the overlook is where to go next, mind the 12" gap with the 30' drop. :huh
    [​IMG]

    A little further on, this is what you'll see:
    [​IMG]

    The view after a few steps more, note the large rock on the right
    [​IMG]

    When you get past that rock and turn around, it looks like a throttle hand (well, at least to me that's what it looks like:D):
    [​IMG]

    Eggy's nest in under the left edge of the index finger, note the leaves and broken stick. I covered up the package with the leaves. It's tucked back underneath pretty well.
    [​IMG]

    Happy hunting. I hope whoever grabs it goes west with it. Eggy would love to see the great sights of Yellowstone and he didn't believe me when I told him how flat Kansas was. :D
