    QUE: Would the following pic have been as easy for you?
    (I have been away for years and had no idea these statues existed. Simon,an Irish friend suggested the location. Apparently he frequents the park and adorns the famine statues w/ pennies. I now question his sanity....)

    I didnt want to give away my secret, but I used that picture to figure out where it was.. I had never been there before, but once I could see the CN tower in the background I was able to find the approximate location. I then used google to search for Memorials in Toronto and that lead me to this one! :eek1

    I havnt decided where to put him next... Maybe keep him in TO or move him outside, I am thinking it will depend on the weather... How do you guys feel about slightly aggressive dirt roads? It is a marked road on maps, but its a little rough, dont want to put it there if no one will want to get it though. When I say rough I mean for a street only bike you would have to go pretty slow... Let me know what you think...

    ULELUZE its all your call if you want to put her back out of the city. I follow both the N.A. TOR and the Big Apple TOR, so I'm jonesin' for some urban EGG action. If we can bounce her around T.O. for a wee bit perhaps we can generate enough interest for a

    I do believe you have broken Subsection #3.a of the 7th RULE which states:
    Forthwith, all TAGS, as per General Rules TOR (Tag-O-Rama), shall not be posted in the EM (Early Morning) on any Church Day, Saturday or on the morning following any Raucus Statutaory Holiday, eg. New Year's Day, the 4th of July, etc, etc.

    Had a Mexican Standoff w/ a crazily aggro pick-em-up-truck driver who was a nasty bully w/ 2t backing him up but quickly locked his doors when I dismounted and slowly approached at the light right beside the TAG. I pointed at his mashed up right side and told him in a loud yet friendly manner that he was a "good driver". Made me laugh.

    On the way home, I cut through Sunnybrook Park, and some Park Ranger objected to me passing him so much that he honked and "gave chase". This almost ended in tears when he followd me across a single lane bridge w/ a centre post that stops cagers from using it. The sound of his screeching tires (not kidding!) and my laughter echoed through the valley.:rofl :rofl :rofl

    Looks like I under estimated you. I didn't think that would be so easy. I will have to try harder next time!

    My guess is that it's in drainage somewhere in North America.

    We going to get a bit more clue than a photo of a drainage pipe?

    From the first post of this thread... :deal

    Not sayin' these tags are super obscure, if you're from the area, but that isn't really the point of this game is it? Surely there is a local Tag-O-Rama for that kind of movement.

    And do these really represent "some of the best locations in North America?"
    Let's get 'er moving for real again, guys. :fishie

    Hang on before you flame this guy too bad.:norton

    Its a drainage pipe and its in North America....that narrows it down considerably doesn't it? :pot

    I think I saw a drainage pipe just the other day, maybe I should go check and see of there is apiece of wood laying in there. :deal

    The drainage pipe is just where the egg is buried. I thought the TAG was the building in the previous photo. Not that helps much as I dont have a clue as the whereabouts of the building either. A little more verbage might help.

    However I wouldnt worry to much about Mr. Egg not moving much just now. The game has wandered about the same general area more than once in the game. I am sure it will grow legs sooner or later.

    I would say they do represent some of the best locations.
    The last locations a wall dedicated to the achievements of this country and the people in it, including our first prime minister Sir John A MacDonald, The Schooner Bluenose ship which was the holder of the American Cup for many years and is featured on our currency, the CF-105 Avro a Canadian built aircraft that in the 50's was an amazing invention and change the industry, also shown is the CN tower which until recently was the tallest free standing building in the world. Rick Hansen is also on this wall, Rick was a Canadian Advocate for Spinal injuries and embarked on a 26 month 40,000 km tour around the world to raise awareness.
    Before that it was at the Irish Famine monument dedicated to the thousands of Irish that came to this country to escape the famine that killed almost 1 Million.
    Before that it was at the most well known provincial park in Canada.

    Going through the history of this thread I have seen this Tag be located at Cell phone towers and restaurants, so I would say that the above TAG's are excellent locations and if you would like to find a better location you can come and grab it and move it there. :asshat

    I know where this building is and without directly giving it away I will help by posting some points about it. I hope this building is significant enough to be a TAG. :rofl

    This building is both a cruicial part of infastructure and an architecturally acclaimed historic building in Toronto. This palace of purification is a national historic civil engineering site and has been used in three different movies as an asylum/prison, and has been in many TV Series as well.

    I hope that helps someone find it, I just hope they can move it to a better location, maybe a Tim Hortons? :freaky
