    George,

    It was nice to meet you and eggy Wednesday in Cool Springs.

    Teresa says hi.

    We're back home in LHC. We got to Oatman right when the two restaurants were rolling up the sidewalks, so we fed the jackasses then WE ate in beautiful Bullhead City!

    We also met a French couple in Oatman that are here on vacation riding a Harley Dresser and traveling from LA to Chicago along Route 66.

    We stayed out late and had to fight those real heavy winds that kicked up, all of a sudden.

    Surprised to see that you posted those pictures so fast.


    I'll check the board more often and see where you're headed.

    Had a nice little ride this morning. Found Mr Eggy tucked away under his rock:

    He had a really nice view except is was a little hazy this morning:

    And I am not making this up, but a Donkey was walking down the road right at the time I picked up Eggy.
    He is to the left side of the picture. He did not walk past the bike, just turned and walked down around that guard rail.
    I guess my Yellow bike scared him.

    Not much activity in Oatman this morning:

    I did find one local resident who was not afraid of Mr Eggy:

    He is now safe in Kingman. More pictures tomorrow after work.

    GEORGE, I live very close to you. I'm off Southern Ave, right behind the school. Maybe we could get together for breakfast sometime.

    Wow, quick grab... expected him to sit there a while.

    I had originally planned to drop him off in Valley OF The Gods above Medicine Hat, UT but my wife wanted to meet him, so...

    Anyway, where to next?

    Good job and good pics, Merkur Man. I'm up for b'kfast, 'long as it's oatmeal. (Still dieting, 5 lbs. to go :D)

    PLEASE, please, pretty please....this is a not a photo compliation place where spurious collections of photos NOT RELATING DIRECTLY TO THIS GAME are to be posted, so please, take the photoalbum on the side privatly with your pal.


    this is an ADV Tag-O-Rama thread.:deal

    oh, and while I'm biotching already, I know George had a cool trip with Eggy and all, but there are just a couple rules to the game, and they are pretty simple.....and it's pretty much inferred that the photo of the drop is posted HERE, not remotely tucked into a photo album off site.
    :deal

    man.

    The egg pouch picture has been deleted. I'm sorry if I have offended anyone by showing its contents. My intention was to allow the past egg carriers to see if their items were still in there.

    In case anybody is wondering, here is the current contents of the egg pouch. I'm not so sure that anthing else can be stuffed in the bag.

    The Egg will be "dropped" next weekend at the Overland Expo, which is taking place at Mormon Lake just south of Flagstaff.
    I will be there on Saturday (19th). I seem to remember that the past Tag items (I think it was Blockhead or the Chicken) have been handed over to another inmate, instead of being hidden. Do the rules allow this, what say ye? If I meet someone at the event who wishes to take up the challange, then we can take/post pictures of the hand-off. If not, then Eggy will be tucked away somewhere safe.

    I will be taking Eggy to see some of the local sights around the area, until next weekend.

    I think a pass off would be fine. So long as it is properly photographically documented and all that.

    As for all the stuff in the bag. You are suppose to take something out..... I know I did.

    I didn't take anything out... (should'a kept the tire-valve tool, they can be very handy. :D)

    Merkur, I'll be there too next Saturday, hope to run into you...

    Yankee Dog: Have you ever picked up the Egg? I see ST Ranger on there.

    Bratso and I picked it up in elk horn city, ky and brought it to Michigan. We are on there. It is getting a bit crowded.

    I took a small turnbuckle bratso thinks she may have the multitool . We went to a Brewfest last night so things are a bit fuzzy just now
