    Steve O, if no one gets him by Sat maybe your mission needs to be to re-hide him in a more accessible location?

    Rats! My tiny brain can’t hold all the transmogrified CBs. I thought the Hobbes had been found! I would have picked it up tonight since there’s a less challenging way to it, but a little dicey with traffic. It would have been kinda on my way and from what I heard Hobbes is Chained there. Maybe tomorrow after work if the weather isn’t too bad. I’ll be at Georgetown. I could have used his Tiger Warmth tonight!

    Check back here before you go; I'm hoping to add to my perfectly reasonable #kidical mileage so far to take M on a rescue mission, and will report back on our success (or lackthereof) as soon as it is known.

    Clever people might consider looking at my strava track. I usually delay posting it for a day or so, but it's been longer than that now.

    Update on Hobbes: The long road to recovery from being left alone for so long has begun. We went to the nearest spot to warm up (so no coffeeride points for this stop), but he made a new friend.

    Gosh! This ended up being much harder and a much longer ride than expected. The hint is attached to the picture and since I was at Georgetown I thought it would be an easy capture at the Trek bike shop “placed at Bill Shatner’s favorite bike shop” after deciding there was probably no one by that name in Freezing Saddles. No luck! I was finally guided to another Trek shop and there we must have had three or four of us working on it for a half hour. It briefly occurred to me that I should just google his favorite bike shop, but I dismissed that thinking he was just too old to be sponsoring anything like that. Wrong! One guy had that hunch and sure enough he does!

    That was actually a lot of fun! I got to meet a bunch of bike people and a shop I didn’t know about and we all had fun working on it.

    This happened, weeks after I claimed it would. There's now a spreadsheet with scores and miscellaneous info and reasoning, and the OP has been updated with ordinances.

    I believe there are currently 2 Calvinballs out in the wild (sszibler's friendshipball and WB1), and LhasaCM's Hobbesball (if you're not going to hide it I'll award you and M some points as is, I'm not opposed to taking one out-of-commission).
