Condolences on the FIL. Nice job in taking Eggy to warm climates.

Thumb Wintering in warm sunny southern hospitality

Condolences...
I and I'm sure a few others know only too well the wrath of the rule book thumpers.

Thanks everyone for keeping the game moving AND, unlike a couple of years ago, saving "MY PRECIOUS" from a snowy winter exile up north.

Now let's keep it south 'til spring.

Im sorry, but this is ridiculous. I am not able to figure out the necessity to move it to FL via car. Last I looked, Alabama and South Caroline both enjoy year round riding.
And requiring the mascot to move around via motorcycle is anything but thumping the rule book. Any number of locations would have been fine to include your mailbox and or a week or two delay would have been fine.

But to move the egg by car is not ok.

If he would have dropped it in Langston, sure I would have it already. But SC, no way, most likely GA would be to far just now.

Still BS to take it in a car and you know it.

I'm with the Dog on this one.

I too would much rather see EGGY sit for a spell, then to have to live with the shame of having to travel by car.
He doesn't need to dropped at the top of Lincoln's head on Mt. Rushmore or nuthin'...just drop him at your local Starbuck's. Someone'll grab him up for sure from there. Heck...Mac stuck him in his own damn BIRDFEEDER for cryin' out loud!!

well....at least he's back in action!! GAME ON PEOPLE!!

It left Alabama on a bike. A death in the family occurred, and Chris tried to find a solution that allowed him to meet his family obligations, while putting the egg back in play. Give it a rest. It was his decision to make. He did fine.

Quit whining and go get the damned egg!

I agree with Dyno. The current chauffeur has control. If Eggy don't like it, he'll voice his complaint himself.

I'm about five miles from where I dropped Eggy. My wife and I are heading home in the morning.

I'll swing by in the morning to check. If the package is still there, I'll pick it up and make a drop sometime in the next week by motorcycle.

If anyone has a problem with that, post it or PM it by 6 AM Sunday. After that, it's too late.

Sometimes I hate being so damned honest.

Thanks to those of you who took into account the situation.

Chris

Leave it there.
Life and learn.
You have enough going on with your loss than worrying about us bitter rule followers.
It is a cool hiding place and eggy will enjoy it there.
