    Eggy is alive and well. I don't have the egg, but it is -- at this very instant -- less than three feet from me.:D

    Expect a grab post from Eggy's rescuer.

    It happened to Nuttsy when it was in Fayetteville NC. Someone looked all around it and it was sitting where it was dropped.

    It's just an oversight.

    It happens.

    This is fantastic news! Augie was just as sure it wasn't there as I was sure Nutsy was not where he was dropped. It happens... Just glad he has been located! :clap:clap:clap

    So Fido leaves North GA on Thursday afternoon to go grab the USA Tag down in Green Cove Springs, Fla with the intention of placing Nutsy up in VA where the NA Tag had gone missing.

    On the way north up thru SC and NC I get the bright idea to stop in at Rick's Rendevous going on in Hampton, TN. http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=820686

    So I blew thru there in the rain on Saturday morning and picked up Land for a day ride over to the tag location.

    Nutsy enjoyed visiting at RDV:

    It was a wet 100 miles over to the State Park, but a sweet run thru rural NC.

    I hid Nutsy on the old John Deere mower with the help of a couple of magnets.

    [​IMG]

    I looked all under that tree, just like others had, and found no sign of Eggy. BUT, I'm walking back to the bikes

    [​IMG]


    and glance over at the big sign. "Hmm, hey Chris, what the heck is that stuffed between the sign posts?" Upon investigation......there it is:

    The pack was open, the cannister was placed on top of the pack. The note describing the "If found......." was the first thing I came to when opening the pack. There was a small hole in the bottom of the pack that looked like it had been chewed on by some rodent.

    [​IMG]

    I think the pack was exposed by said rodent and found by a human, who opened the pack, read the note, then re-hid the tag bag in a more secure place. He did not re-pack the the package cause yall got so much stuff packed in there!

    Eggy went back to Rick's Rendevous with Fido and Land and enjoyed the Saturday night festivities.

    So as I post this, Eggy is secure and dry near Erwin, TN. So far I'm showing a little over 1300 miles on the clock for this tag adventure.

    Now I have the 'hot potato(e)' and have no idea where I'm going to place it.

    Way to geaux Fido! :clap The hole was already in the bag, must have been dropped/dragged at speed? Thanks for going back up there and recovering Eggy!

    That's pretty awesome. I guess squirrels want in on the tag action?

    #4 Tag mascot (i.e. blockhead, chicken, etc.) is required to clame the tag. Please post your "bruced" pictures even if the tag mascot has already been taken. Tag claims must be posted within 12 hours of the 1st "bruced" photo. In the even no official tag claim is made within 12 hours, the person with the 1st "bruced" photo gets the tag and the honor of choosing the next Tag mascot. (does that make any sense??)

    This may present a problem. May need a ruling on this matter from the EGGsperts.

    The only issue with rule #4 is it was designed if someone picked up the mascot and failed to post the grab.
    In this case the mascot was not found initially, so rule #4 does not apply in this case.

    It happened in the USA TOR so a presidence has been set.

    It is my opinin that since the mascot was not stolen or lost that is should go to the mascot holder.

    Had the mascot not been found then it would go to the first person to post the TAG site.

    Anyone else have ideas?

    He who finds it gets to keep it.. ... what else can ya do.. he's got it and he's moving with it. You want it.. go get it when it drops. What's that old rule when you get up from your seat on the coach? then some one else takes it? I can't think of it and wife can't either.. 26 and Im losing my memory.

    TAG on...
