    He was, but after several weeks of inactivity (I rode past him on VooDoo several times and he was laying out there in the open, totally uncovered) I figured the game had died so I took him back up into the hills and buried him at the site of where the game started.

    I know that's what I was thinking. Where's the other one?

    edit: just read Nat's response & will now go into mourning. Don't know how long or how many beers it will take to get over this...

He was filthy and buried under some dirt at the base of a bush up on the side of the rocky/steep part of the Mrazek/Phil's connector trail off 4606. From his adventures that I've read about, it seems that he must have fallen off someone's bike in this area (not a spot I would imagine someone hiding him). He is in good hands now. YM enjoyed a nice sponge bath to remove the caked-on dirt from his little bendy body, had a shot glass of RPM and an Ocean Roll and now he's off to sleep until his next adventure! I will be sure to take him to a nice hide-and-go-seek spot of his choice on our local trails soon....photo and clues to follow.

    SD girl, did you keep him or is he out there in the wild?

    Anyone, please feel free to exhume him and start it up again. I just didn't see any interest in the past two months so I sent him full circle.

    Tell us if you move him. I searched high and low for YM on Voodoo.

    Cool! You (or someone) should be able to retrieve him soon, the way this winter has been.

    Oh cool, it's back on! I still think I need to be a part of this somehow. Might have to make a road trip that way just to ride even if I don't find him.

    You sir have a strange and varied past, not everybody would recognize a tactical ballet slipper in the wild!

    I didn't know that you're part of the Spec Ops dance community. Thanks for your service.

    I brought Yellow Man in close and made it fairly obvious because I liked it when the kids used to play too.

    The last spot (at the chicken) was cleaned out and YM is gone. I think this game may have died once and for all.

    R.I.P. YM

    If I remember he was only a couple of bucks. Someone could easily pick up the new incarnation of him and put him back up on the trails. I need a roadtrip. I wouldn't mind looking. I haven't been there. Well not for riding anyway.

    After much debate with my daughter we have decided to start our own yellowman game. Going to do it at the Echo Oregon complex. We have decided that we want to play but we are to far away to join this game. So we will make our own. I am going to have to go back and look up what the rules consist of.
    First off I need to find a "yellow man." Might check on that this afternoon.
