You were at the right tree. It was hidden in plain sight well. You would have found it looking under the tree but only if you had a reason to look under the tree. No one saw me drop it either. I will call and talk to the head Ranger later today if he doesn't turn up. I hope someone just hasn't gotten around to posting the grab yet.

I will be section backpacking the AT next week and my pick up spot is there. If no one finds eggy or he does not turn up I will look under the tree then. I believe Auggie did a good search but sometimes a different set of eyes helps. But then again I am not very Classy.

kidnapped EGGY

I appreciate all the help and input into resolving the loss of eggy. the reason I made the long trip back to greyson to get eggy was to move him a long way across country. I am leaving to do the TAT today with 3 friends and was going to take him on the ride and drop him somewhere along the trail. I agree that we need to wait and give someone else time to look at the site and or whoever got him to return him and contact us. if it is agreeable with everyone I will wait 10 days before chosing a new mascot. I will decide then wheather to have it dropped at the site where eggy was lost or drop the new mascot somewhere else. I have a friend that i'm sure would assist me in chosing and dropping a new mascot at the greyson park site if we decide with everyones input to do that. I will do whatever the majority wants to do. EGGY WAS LOST OR KIDNAPPED FROM UNDER THE TREE BESIDE THE PLOW IN THIS PICTURE !!!!!!!! if you have him or find him please contact us by
( 5-25-2013) or eggy will assumed to be forever lost but never forgotten.

I think 10 days is beyond adequate. You've posted your "bruce" photo, and the rules state "In the even no official tag claim is made within 12 hours, the person with the 1st "bruced" photo gets the tag and the honor of choosing the next Tag mascot."

I say you choose a new mascot and haul it out to the TAT.

If Eggy turns up, we'll just cross that bridge when we get there. Maybe he's tired of being on the road and hitched a ride in a VW with a college gal heading home for the summer.

Ya know....that's what Ted Kennedy said to MaryJo when she told him she might be pregnant.

I hate that Eggy is AWOL....was there information in the pack that said who (or what) to contact if someone accidentally stumbled upon it? Hope so!

But I wouldn't push the panic button just yet....hopefully he's in the hands of an inmate.

I just spoke with Harvey, the head Ranger, and he was not aware of it being turned in. I left him a phone number to call me if it turns up.

Sorry guys, it was left in a place that someone wouldn't just stumble upon on. Hopefully someone will post up that they found it.

Maybe the person that picked it up tried to post pictures and found he had to have a smart phone or some kind of photo album and didn't/couldn't like me when I picked up Nutsy out in OR. I posted to Facebook, and George transferred it to ADV. Hang in there guys, hope a raccoon didn't make off with it!!!

Yes, there's always been a card that clearly says what the pouch is all about and even this thread & website.

I had the egg 4 times and the Mr. Blockhead before. It'd be sad to see Eggy lost, but the game goes ON!

This is correct, there was a sheet of paper with the adv info on it when I left him.


Augi, it was nice talking with you. Good luck and God speed on your trip!

It has been 48hrs since we reported Eggy missing, and still no sightings. I watch enough CSI to know that the trail is going cold.

Pick a new mascot and place him on the TAT as you planned. If Eggy manages to show up maybe a hand off can be made and Eggy and the new mascot can co habitate in the game.
