Brought the duck a little closer to home. Located on Plank Rd. Just west of exit 13 on rt380.

Located in a Mine field

Not really......just hiding behind this post.

Nice, GearedUp

I had planned to put the duck up by the windmills, but a couple on a side-by-side informed us that we were on private road, even though there were no such signs lots of really nice roads out there though.

Ballpeen and R.M. assisted me in transporting Mr. Quacks to a locale more to his liking:



Here's how to join him yourself:
[fyi there's a nice picnic table / lunch spot within a 150 yards]


And since we all know ducks prefer water to sand!

Crying fowl

Fowl on my part (yes that is an intentional pun).

I completely forgot when I wrote the post up at home that after the location shot was taken we decided to move Mr. Quacks a little bit further under the bridge and out of view. He was still on the same support beam, but further towards the center of the bridge.

I am really sorry Bill. Can't believe I screwed my first dirt tag. Bah!

No big deal. I believe, considering the circumstances, that Bill has the tag. I think it would be reasonable for KiwiMtnClmbr to go and get the duck and deliver it to Bill. Or just let Bill pick a new mascot.

For the future, it is a good idea to have the mascot out of sight so that the random hiker doesn't pick it up. But when hidden, appropriate photos should be supplied.

Good thing Bill hadn't gone to Albany for the tag!

Also, make sure the mascot is secure
and can't be washed or blown away,
or eaten by rattlesnakes.
It does happen.

Duck rescue....

Looks like the duck was still at the bridge, but hidden underneath, requiring some serious Yoga positioning to retrieve:





It is my position that the tag is still NJ-Bill's if he wants it. He can substitute another mascot for the time being, until the duck can be restored.

Change of plans. Work (and fun) has conspired to interfere with tagging duties, so the duck is on the way to the rightful tag holder, NJBill. He will have it in time to drop the tag on Friday or the weekend, depending on his whims.

Off to watch the Barkley golf tournament in the a.m.!
