    I was thinking under the 13,000 foot sign on top of Strawberry Pass in Colorado. Very ADV Rider type of spot, all rock 'n dirt 'n snow 'n ice. On my ST1100 street bike. I've been there before, territory most GS's will never see. <ducking> :D

    But, it's true he gets a lot more "action" when closer to the population centers and the desk-bound computer jockeys. <ducking again> :rofl

    Well, Eggy is on a roll (egg-roll, get it. :rofl) I picked him up yesterday at Mormon Lake, AZ with the intention of carrying him well east. But...

    ...at Winslow, AZ I met some fellow travelers standing on the corner. (No, Really!) They had just come in from CO and are visiting vast territiories before heading home to Ash Grove, MO. Turns out Patrick is a member here but had never played the tag game, so... Eggy has a new chauffeur.

    I'm at a wi-fi disadvantage right now but will post pics soon. Also, Patrick will check in first chance he gets. :D

    I guess he should have asked the guy if he had a camera before the bogus handoff. :D

    Attention George and Patrick:

    Just checking to see if you understand the concept of this game.
    The idea is to post a picture of your bike at the tag location.:deal

    Oh....I'm all in favor of playing the game by the rules.

    however...it seems as though the game has gone 'stale'...so I'm just happy to see it finally pick up some momentum again!! :clap :freaky

    Ok. time for an update. I met George in Winslow AZ as he said. I have never heard of Mr. Egg before but since I've been an ADVrider for several years I was given the oppotunity to play the game. George has a picture of the Mr. Egg transfer but apparantly hasn't had the opportunity to post them yet.

    I will take a photo of Mr. Egg today to prove that he is in good hands and will post soon the spot where he will be planted.

    Thanks for this opportunity and I look forward to seeing where he goes next.

    BTW - he is now in SW Missouri

    As promised, Mr. Egg is in Ash Grove Missouri
    [​IMG]

    Since it's Sunday. I took Eggy to a local country church just south of Ash Grove
    [​IMG]

    I then took Mr. Egg down Route 66 to Paris Springs Missouri (just a few miles off I-44 between Joplin and Springfield).
    [​IMG]

    I spoke with Gary who owns this 100 year old service station. He gave me permission to store Eggy in the cab of this old oil truck
    [​IMG]

    This is where he is located today.

    Paris Springs Missouri

    N 37 degrees 11.662
    W 093 degrees 40.758

    Gary has his Route 66 Filling Station display open daily. He is a very friendly guy and said nobody ever opens the truck but was ok with my placing it there and ADV opening the cab to retrieve. The cache can be found at the base of the drivers side seat.

    Let me know if you have any questions or comments.

    Thanks for allowing me to be a part of this fun.

    The problem is the URLs you've put in your IMG tags aren't URLs for images, but rather goofy javascript generated pages that include an image along with a whole bunch of non-image crap. You need to link to the image file itself, like {IMG}https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-gqM2KUcaC1w/T-hqhGkm0HI/AAAAAAAASAM/I_25UxEZdsU/s820/IMG_7094.JPG{/IMG}:

    Google doesn't make that easy to do, as best as I can tell you've got to open each page in your browser, right click and select "open image in new tab", and extract the correct URL from the address bar for the new tab. Way too much work IMO, so I'd recommend hosting your images elsewhere. Smugmug & Photobucket both seem to work well here.
