    Agreed. Now that I'm on SmugMug, I wish I'd moved away from Photobucket a long time ago. And it's nice to support Baldy and his family support us in what we enjoy.

    Today was eventful. We crossed Lake Champlain on a ferry.

    And on to the Saratoga Battlefield.

    [​IMG]

    Stopped at the bad egg's monument (if you don't know about the monument look it up, it is interesting)

    [​IMG]

    From there we went to West Point and checked out some sites.

    Tonight egg is going first class at the Thayer Hotel in West Point!

    [​IMG]

    I went for dinner and drinks. Egg hit the pillows.

    [​IMG]

    Egg may have problems staying in lessor places in the future.

    Tomorrow egg goes West.

    Another presidential visit in Illinois this morning.

    His tomb:

    His home:

    [​IMG]

    Shortly thereafter we crossed the Mississippi River into Missouri.

    The adventure will be over shorty.

    I plan to hide egg next weekend unless that is a problem.

    Egg has been dropped.

    Once you find this building you are within 6 miles of the drop:

    [​IMG]

    The building is an old pump station.

    Next look for this stretch of road.

    [​IMG]

    Within a mile of that spot you'll come across this gate:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Find the fence post the egg is sitting on, reach around it and you'll find the package.

    The egg is 2.5 miles of easy gravel from the nearest black top.

    If you come on a weekend and the gate is open most likely I'm around. Ride down the driveway and say "hi".

    Grab.
    I was there about 1PM, gate was closed. I never did find that pump station, I came straight in from the south off of Hwy 31.

    Eggy is on the way to Oklahoma.

    On the way home we stopped to check on the Dalton gang (Linky) in their final resting place, Coffeyville, Kansas.

    Yeah, I looked all over google maps before I went up there and didn't see the pump house, got home last night and looked at maps and there it was. Don't know why I couldn't find it before. :gerg

    The intersection of Botkin and 900 roads was easy though.

    Yesterday was a nice cool day for riding, unusual for August around here.

    Dropped eggy off today, hid him under a rock. Didn't have time to take him sightseeing or partying, just wanted to get him out there for the next guy.
    He's in Oklahoma, first you find this place, google knows where it is.

    There is a "park and ride" to the right, looks like this from across the street. That drive to the right headed toward that big billboard. Yes, it's next to the interstate but that's fine.

    [​IMG]

    Go all the way to the end of the parking lot. Notice straight behind my bike there is a pile of dirt.

    [​IMG]

    Go to the dirt pile and look behind it.
    [​IMG]

    You will see a white rock, eggy is under this rock.
