Well put Sir, and if by chance they do leave it down there, George knows me well enough, it won't stay down there.

Calm! Calm! ...

... As the doctor said to the unwed mother, "Keep the baby, Faith!"

The furthest north and east the tag has been so far is Mount Carleton Provincial Park in northern New Brunswick, Canada.

Get the egg back up to New England by the end of the month and I will have the opportunity to better that.

I'll stay with the original.
I play quite a few of them - http://phototag.webs.com/

That said, I just like the idea of a USA tag.

We can assume if California ticked you off panties will be in a wad when it goes to Belize,,, this is a given... I mean,,, if you start a game like this,,, and then bitch it gets to far from your porch and you can't play,,, watch from the sidelines and wait... LEARN,,, from others and witness great roads/spots/destinations you would never get to see!!!

I LOVE,,, reading where this has went,,, 91% of the places I might never go,,, but that 9% I will go because of this thread...

98% of this thread is all good,,, but anyone ranting on the 3 carrying the Egg on this trip,,, or,,, it getting carried to California,,, needs to remove panties from cracks and reapply IMHO...
Austin,

Go back and read; the issue was not that it went to cali, infact it was great to see it move so far (just as with Belize). The issue was two things. One was simply the handoff. The second was two part; the first was using a tag shot that was not where teh egg was combined with a "call me I'll bring you the Egg". Second was that even after it was moved to teh birdhouse (pretty cool actually) it was simply sitting there doing nothing. Maybe there are just not many folks in CA (with such terrible riding weather and all ) that are interested in playing.

I would love to have the time to take Egg on a long trip, but until I retire (again) I do not see it happening. Me, I do not care if a person grabs Mr. Egg and only moves him 50 miles down the road if that is all they have time for. I also do not care if a person has Mr. Egg for two months if he is on a long trip and documents said trip on the thread. I think all that any of us are asking is that no matter where a rider takes Mr Egg he/she should simply use a bit of thought in placement. YES, taking Mr. Egg to Belize is an epic ride and moving him from Fla to CA was fantastic too, but if he is just going to sit (as would likely have happened in Belize if it was actually left there by the riders on that trip) then maybe he is being left in the wrong place. That is the issue, nothing more.

I thought when I brought it to the top of Algonquin it was further north but I just checked the GPS and apparently not..
If I get my hands on the Egg again it will be coming back to the great white north... I should have brought it up here from Florida when I had the chance.

Great work on the current TAG location looking forward to where it ends up.

Mr Egg....

Hey guys.. Ive been sitting hear quietly reading all about the trip Mr Egg has taken. I really think The St Riders should be commended for the great trip they showed us and the great stories they'll have. They listened to the voices of everyone on the site and are bringing Mr Egg back north for the next ADV rider to grab up..... Now one thing nobody has mentioned. (and yes I checked the pics) Where is Mr Eggs luggage?????? His little bag of tricks picked up along his travels has not been seen or mentioned. I hope he was kind enough to share his tools during the couple of break downs... (Flashlight, multi-tool, etc..... not sure the bubbles would do much lol) Anyway!!! GAME ON!!! Looking forward to hearing more about your trip to Belize and seeing where the Egg lays next.

Right now the egg is in Guatamala. They are at a river crossing trying to get a boat to get the three of them across and get back to some sort of civilization in Mexico.

It looks like they couldn't get across the river in eastern Guatamala so they are headed back to Belize and go up the way they came down. The egg is not going farther south with George. They may have pqssed it to some FF down there, but they haven't said so in their messages to the ST people. Here's a link to George's thread on the st-owners.com site. http://www.st-owners.com/forums/showthread.php?t=81797
