There is no fear of being bruced I think, because the snail has been sitting there for a very long time. I'll bet landscapers grabbed it when they were cleaning up that area and planting for the spring. I will create a new snail soon (maybe I should turn the mascot into a greyhound instead, so it moves a bit faster? ). 250 miles, that was a haul, hopfully it was a nice ride on that great bike?
