    :rofl I did that just the other day to grab a wildcard tag, but I then rode out to grab the new theme. Here is the grab shot. The theme was something flying.

    So, I miss checking on the egg for a couple of days and it has finally moved!!! Nice job Patrick, I was afraid I was going to have to come back up there, but it looks like things are going to be OK in OR.
    I really feel your pain for the 8 hours in the saddle Wibby. My SO gets a little irritable after 8 hours saddle time too.

    MAC, you can keep baby sitting the EGG MAN but we don't want to enable the local folks to sit back and popcorn through this TAG.
    I will be out that neck of the woods middle of August so I'll be keeping an eye on EGGZACTLY where MY PRECIOUS is.
    Anxiously awaiting pics, Wiggly. ;). Thanks for picking the EGG MAN up.

    If I ever do something like this again I think I'll actually look at a map first :baldy

    I know you probably want the money shot but I thought I'd take you on my little ride first...

    Got off to a lazy 2pm start yesterday. I had an idea where Port Orford was so I just blasted North up the 5 for a bit. Turbulence on the freeway was really nasty, I thought my visor was gonna rip off of my Arai so at Glendale I turned off and headed up the Cow Creek. I thought about heading over to Powers but for some reason I was thinking Port Orford was much further North :scratch

    So I went up through Riddle and back on the 5 to Dillard on to HWY 42. Sure lucked out on all the road construction, I think I hit all but one right as they were sending everyone through.

    [​IMG]

    Sure have BIG bugs over here :huh

    Had to stop and get some shots for Ladybug :wink:

    So anyways I roll through Coquille and just happen to look down at my gps, and it's saying to make a U-turn. I'm thinking wtf? Luckily I listened to it and did not go North.

    Kind of a roundabout way to get there but I finally made it

    Not really sure why we need a fire hydrant on a beach :scratch

    The grab!

    Originally I was planning on going North and spending the night at a friends place in Springfield. But I then realized how close to Gold Beach I was and more importantly The Barnacle Bistro! :slurp :dg So I decided to head South.

    As much as I needed to be getting back over the mountain, I had to stay for this money shot

    WOO-HOO...Mr. Wibby has the EGG!!!! :clap :clap :clap



    first off...this is an awesome shot!! (are you sure they're not tracking you?? :eek1 :wink: )
    Oh yeah.......I can't believe you didn't know where Port Orford is???!!!!! I figured you'd just jump over the hill and make your grab!

    But hey, you DID get to ride down hwy 42 S...which is an awesome motorcycle road!

    Nice job with the grab there Mr. Wibby!!! :norton A perfectly posted 'grab shot'!

    Keep up the good work and let's keep Mr. EGG & his entourage bouncing around the PNW!!! :clap



    WOO-HOO....GAME ON!!!!!!! :clap :freaky :thumb :rayof :wings :rilla :beer :ricky

    Hey Wib - That looks like a threefer to me. An egg grab, a stop at Sector's Barnacle Bistro and flowers for me. :wings I was just telling a friend about the very yummy fish and sweet potato fries at the Barnacle Bistro:tb . I really need to ride down and says hi to Sector, I just wish it was a little bit closer.

    I've looked at the tag o rama threads but didn't understand what was going on and at the time they were all so far away. Now that you have this one floating around the PNW I need to figure out how this game works in case I get a chance to grab it. :evil

    Danny this is looking to be as big a bust as it was taking it to CA. Be good to get it back east where the folks move it.
