    Word of caution. Tower is located approx 4 miles of dirt & red clay road. It is very hard packed & was a little slick today with the weather. I made it with street tires.....just take your time if it's wet:deal

    Have Fun:D

    I see you had a touch of snowfall.
    Did the egg have a vision of what it could become?
    Sunday is the earliest I'll make that trip.

    Cool, back in NY! I'm familiar with the area, but it's definitely out of my range (especially this time of year).

    Someone grab it before it get's snowed in til Spring. :ricky

    Don't worry fella's there's enough of us that aren't afraid of a little snow to keep it moving wherever it ends up
    http://www.advrider.com/forums/showpost.php?p=9119376&postcount=72

    If it's not too far out of the way I'll snatch it up and take it to the South tip of the Florida Keys when I head that way the 1st week of March to see the 200 at Daytona. :lol3

    Well, that's encouragement to grab it before you since that's a long time to wait for it to get dropped.
    I'm heading to Florida next Saturday 12/5.

    Can't speak for anyone else but I just retired last month.
    It's one of the reasons for getting involved it this intriguing treasure hunt.

    Well, I rode to the hill and saw the tower from below but could not bring myself to take the ST1100 (street tires) too far on what turned out to be wet clay and steep inclines. I even circled the hill in search of a better access but no.:(:

    This may bring the fire of some ADV riders and that's OK since I already scolded myself pretty good on the 140 mile ride home. I am no stranger to offroad on that bike. I took it up the Haul road (Dalton) to the Arctic Circle north of Fairbanks.

    I assumed it was going to be dry since there was no rain that I could see but when I got there I realized there was snow in Redpowers pic. I figured it melted and created the slick surface. It was almost dusk and I made the decision to save myself some trouble picking the 650# hippo up with my 140# body.

    As I was exiting the mud, I encountered about six teens (half girls) on ATV's having a blast spinning donuts and smiling at me. I was tempted to ask for a ride or better yet, if I could borrow one for the last leg to the tower. I thought better of that devious plot.

    So here I am head hung in shame after a 300+ mile round trip and only the fun of the miles to show for it. I thought to myself that someone probably got to it before me anyway. Looks like that was wrong.

    I am still heading to Florida next week so could someone please take the egg to a more :lol3:lol3:lol3 "wheelchair" :lol3:lol3:lol3 accessible spot so I can take it to points warm and south.
    Hey, If you don't ask...
    Enjoy the hunt.:D

    It is a bit slick up there when wet. That is quite a ride you made! Would love to skip work and bring the thing down, but so far this week is looking busy...

    Anybody else out there thinking about taking a run at it?

    Just realize it's raining up there today so it'll be even slicker and sloppier than yesterday.

    Anyone with knobbies interested? If not, can I borrow your bike? :lol3:lol3:wink::wink:

    Nice try Digiamo. Places like this beg re-reading the few rules, which include:


    #2 Dirt is allowed; however, ... use your judgement on placing the tag to ensure that someone else will most likely come and get it...

    #5 ...understand the intent of the game. Quality not Quantity.



    With the snow and mud on street tires, I would've walked in, then taken a photo of the tower in the distance with the egg and duck on the tank.

    Oh and CONGRATS on the retirement!!! :clap

    Sorry Digiamo, I too rode over 165 miles one way to drop the egg. (I took the duck back) I got to Cairo & it started raining. Pulled over & put on my rain gear...as I climbed the mountain (still paved road) it started turning to snow. There was no way I was turning around after traveling 150+ miles now!! There really is only one real incline to worry about & going up is not a problem...it was coming down that I had to go very slow. It was slick & I noted that to everyone<TABLE class=tborder id=post11491119 cellSpacing=0 cellPadding=4 width="100%" align=center border=0><TBODY><TR><TD class=thead style="FONT-WEIGHT: normal">[​IMG] 11-27-2009, 09:46 PM <!-- / status icon and date --></TD><TD class=thead style="FONT-WEIGHT: normal" align=right>#1167 </TD></TR><TR vAlign=top><TD class=alt2 width=175>RedPower<SCRIPT type=text/javascript> vbmenu_register("postmenu_11491119", true); </SCRIPT>

    If you look in the picture you can see the road consistency also.

    </TD></TR></TBODY></TABLE>As far as judgement goes there still seems to be some people interested in going. The tag isn't even 4 days old & you are acting like no one will go get it...Relax the egg sat in Canada how long??

    And as far as Quality goes...have you ridden in that area?? It's nice country in the Catskills.
    I could have posted a lame old building in NJ right off the slab & that would have been Quantity. But I guess we all have our own Ideas of "Quality"

    This is ADVENTURE RIDER, not Slab Rider isn't it??

    Well I hope you got to enjoy your ADVENTURE Digiamo & I'm sorry you weren't able to seal the deal. Did you take any pix at least?

    Oh no, I won't grab until I'm just getting ready to go and I won't plan on it taking more than 24 hrs to get there as I'm hoping to make the trip be for an IBA BB (1500 in 36) Certificate or at least a SS Cert (1000 in 24)
