    Nice! I was surprised how concerned I was with a non-player finding the little guy. Last thing I wanted on my first drop was a replacement mascot.

    If you have the urge to do it again, try taking a shot of the mascot hiding location, with and without the cover. That helps the duck hunters to find it!

    As before, great excuse for a ride in the hundred acre wood on a beautiful day. No rain, NO BUGS, perfect conditions and high of 53.

    Here’s the New Tag, and duck hiding place. No trailer was used for this drop!

    See the puddle and the pipe next to the railroad tracks? That’s where the duck is stashed:

    20171224_152608.jpg New tag. You can see the duck in the upper right. I covered him with a piece of brick from the foundation.

    Haven't been able to find a photo of that graffiti, but have an idea where it's located.

    While searching for the Pine Barrens graffiti tag, came across this one (and the original is even better!):

    So, Bill, I think I need GPS coordinates (or at least a bottle of Maker's Choice)! :-)

    Well, did a Navy Seal duck extraction/rescue today. Wonderful 200 miles, with some actually on dirt around Hampton Furnace, where Bill had hidden the duck. Sweet afternoon to ride in January. Lots of Harleys out there today, especially at Pic-A-Lilli!

    Looks like I will be moving the tag up North again. Seems like most of the Southern bikes have been “Stabolled” and are on battery tenders till spring!

    Don't watch too hard! I'm going "little bike" riding in the morning.
    Eagles game at 6:15.
    New duck drop probably Monday. Sorry.

    Well, it's been a busy week, and tomorrow's skiing at Blue.
    Might be able to drop the duck up North on Saturday, or back South on Sunday during the SOF ride.
    Ducgonzo has been keeping warm by the woodstove! Photos to follow!:-)

    You got it! Here's the new drop location:

    Don’t go past the gate. They must be serious about it, considering the number of locks!

    Here’s how you find the place. Start here:
    [​IMG]
    Head West for about 3/4 of a mile and turn right on Dreahook.
    Continue to this intersection and turn right.

    Go about a mile up the dirt road.

    Send me your address, and I'll place the duck in your mailbox!:imaposer
    What kind of ADV rider are you? Tomorrow, it's going to be warm again, and the breakfast at Gerry's is spectacular....

    Nice job on a cold night!
    Was thinking about messaging you about the tag, since you asked it to be moved North, but you came through!
    Sorry it was so easy, but I figured that if it snowed, a more technical location would be problematic...

    Head to the Washington station remains.
    Enter where I'm riding out.
