    The Egg toured a bit of old England.

    The London Bridge in Lake Hahasu. First constructed in 1831, then moved to Arizona in 1971.

    I took the Egg with me to see the new "Avengers" movie. He was in my pocket the whole time. It has a predictable ending. The Heroes win :D

    Mr Egg stopped for a visit with a 14 foot tall Tiki Head, which sits along Rt 66 here in Arizona.
    He is called "Giganticus Headicus", and was built in 2004:

    Poor little eggy looks like a zit sitting on the Tiki's nose:

    Don't forget that Mr Eggy will make an appearance at the Overland Expo this Saturday.
    He looks forward to being picked up by another inmate, and traveling to a new destination.

    Seems like you have decided to come in and do some arbitration when we (as you said) already had things sorted out already. And since you have to call me out on it, yea, I have a problem with posting the contents. I think it spoils the mystery of it. If you want to know what's in it, go find it and look.

    What's my iron in this fire? My name is on the egg too.

    Next time you feel like stirring up the natives, please just sleep on it before poking people with a stick.

    Folks, looks like several members are planning to be at The Overland Expo this weekend, including Merkur Man with Mr. Egg. Looks like lots of activities to to interest adventure riders.

    The expo looks like a big deal. I'm going specifically to meet Ara and Spirit of Oasis Of My Soul fame...

    My plan was to take Friday off work then ride the DR 650 over there going through Prescott/Cottonwood/Sedona. But my vacation day was cancelled, so I'll be riding the H-D instead. I work the night shift so I'll be leaving early Saturday morning.
    The H-D makes better time on the highway. The 25mph headwinds play havoc with the DR's fuel mileage.

    Mr Egg visited these Murals which are painted on the rocks in Chloride AZ.
    Not really sure why somebody would choose to paint them so far from public view.
    They were painted by Roy Purcell in about 1966, and are about 2000 sq ft in size.

    That painting has held up remarkably well if it was painted in 1966. Very cool. Thanks for sharing.

    The Egg has been placed near Morman lake, but the darn computer at the hotel will not allow me to open two different sites.
    Going to try and find another computer tonight.

    The Historic Mormon Dairy. You will pass this site before getting to the Morman Lake campground.

    This is the view if you were coming from Mormon Lake.

    [​IMG]

    And this is the view before you get to Mormon Lake.

    The egg pouch before being covered with rocks.

    [​IMG]

    Mr. EGG is resting beneath this rock pile.

    [​IMG]

    The EGG is resting about 25 feet directly above the rock structure. Just a couple of feet behind the power pole.

    [​IMG]

    Look for this sign when coming from Flagstaff.

    [​IMG]

    Then turn left on Mormon Lake Road. The Mormon Dairy site will be on your right, after riding for several miles.

    [​IMG]

    I will post more pictures when I get home tomorrow.

    Oh, funny. I rode right past there Saturday morning, about 10AM. Wish we could'a met at the the event...

    Good drop point for Mr. Egg. The route on the west road is more scenic than just running up 'n down Lake Mary Road (Co-3).

    I ran into several people I know,,, the event was pretty large, big crowds, lots of Big Boyz ToyZ available for Big Buck$. I posted some pics at Picasa, take a look here.

    On the way to Mormon Lake, The Egg made some new friends:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    He stopped in Seligman, for breakfast at West Side Lelo's Cafe:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Then it was on to Flagstaff passing above 7300 feet. Has he ever been photographed at a higher altitude?

    [​IMG]

    Then finally ending up at his destination:

    [​IMG]

    Eggy has seen some strange things before, but he thinks this tops them all.
    Yes, that is a dog in the cage. They packed everything but the kitchen sink:

    It was fun. He now awaits his next adventure:

    I prefer a surprise.
    But if it does make it all the way to SE Ohio then I will take a day off and try to pick him up.
    However I'm not a big mileage rider, so I wouldnt move him much further than somewhere else in Eastern OH, northern WV or western PA.

    Good luck and enjoy the trip.
