    Man, that's an ADVenture ride!

    Delmava down the Shore, across the BBT, visiting historic (and haunted some say) Hollywood Cemetery, lost wallet, attacked by "Jason" the deer, meeting great people, and riding with your honey.

    :thumb

    I hope that wallet comes back to you. My wife left hers on a newspaper box several years ago. Later that night, a guy called saying he had found it. It took him over an hour to find our unlisted phone number. As a reward for his good citizenship, he received a reward of cash that far exceeded what was in the wallet.

    Hawk, bummer about the wallet. On the plus side I now know where to stay if I venture down that way.

    If you look closely you can see the Tower, just over the left side of the sign.
    Located leaving South Bethany, De.

    The money shot...
    [​IMG]

    There is a little trail leading out to the tower, look for this...
    [​IMG]

    Then turn around and look for this...

    The Egg will be on the ground behind this tree.

    This may not be the best tag to get at night...
    Oh and look out for "Jason" the Deer, seems he may have followed me home...

    Egg suggested lunch. Good idea Egg!

    While sitting there enjoying some smoothered and diced, Egg noticed something out the window.

    Egg is planning to hang with me tomorrow and then be off to his new spot on Monday.

    I figure that at this point, the show has been off the air how long?, that seeing one now has some cool factor.

    Well, Egg decided he wanted to accompany me to work last night so I took a couple shots of him there.

    He got hungry so I left him in teh fridge for a bit

    After he ate, well........

    He then assisted with the refuel of a 747.

    More shots later today.

    I can see it now, explaining to the FAA how someone "overflew" thier destination by 2 hours, because the egg was holding the plane hostage, and getting it's picture taken.....heheheheheheeh:rofl

    :deal did they do a cavity search on the egg, to make sure he was not carrying "restricted" items on board???

    :wings :wings :lurk

    To kick off the day, Egg hung out in 02TAC's 02 TAComa.
    [​IMG]

    We then were off for a little spiritual nourishment.

    After the service Egg went after teh cheesecake.

    Later in the day, Egg tried his hand at some RC rock crawling. He did come in handy at one point.

    Here's the tag photo:
    [​IMG]

    Here's me standing where I should've been able to look down and find it:
    [​IMG]

    After kicking around the hedgerow & woods for 45 minutes in the wind & rain, I'm comfortable in writing that the bag and egg are clearly not there. :huh I can see exactly where the photo showed it under leaves and there's just trash from people drinking in the woods. (A high school's right down the street.)

    Here's the rub: I DID find another game's tag a short distance away! They use a very nice camoflaged PVC pipe with a screw off cap, pipe-bomb style.
    [​IMG]

    But inside were all sorts of geo-caching trinkets:
    [​IMG]

    It was far enough away that I don't think it had anything to do with the egg missing, so it's back where I found it.

    With the rain of yesterday and today, I highly doubt I got bruced. (What other idiot would ride in this for a photo of a vandalaized egg? :lol3 ) So I'll look a little more, but think the clock (see page 1 for rules) is running before I need to set another tag.

    That sucks, I placed it up near the tree as there was no evidence of folks tramping around near the tree, but I guess you never can tell.
