Nick, I wish I can "like" that last edit pic hundreds of times.

BTW, great sets from beginning to end. I totally enjoyed that comic especially leading to that rocket launch.

I had so much fun hanging out with you guys yesterday. And oh, thanks to Inexorable Tash for the whip cracking tutorials.

Guys...

Those last couple of shots illustrate everything I wanted this project to be - a means of bringing the Raven community together offline. Bravo.

Love the line-up of Travelling Indy and his dopplegangers. The original is looking a bit worn around the edges - but that's some real life weathering that speaks of the distance he's clocking up. Hey - it's not the age, it's the mileage - right ?

And who'd have thought that the Berlin Flughafen location from Last Crusade was in the US? That architecture just screamed "Europe" to me. How wrong can a guy be!

Tash - looking forward to your adventures with Indy. Just make sure he catches that ride back to me by the second week of April

Yep, Indy is now travelling along with me through the sordid streets of San Francisco. A big thanks to Nick and MDP78 for the get-together and the handoff. I'm glad you enjoyed the whip cracking lessons. (They were both naturals, mastering two basic cracks immediately. Nick also pulled off a nice "knock the fedora off your head" trick.)

I've got a checklist of planned locations and hope to string the photos together into a narrative so I won't necessarily be posting as they are shot. Inky: no problem. I'm giving myself two weeks, then either off to Le Sab or back to you, depending on how things go.

The little guy and I did go for a walk around my part of the city yesterday, and while I'm not ready to share everything, I thought Stoo would appreciate this one:

I intensely dislike the idea of being forced into somebody else's timetable despite the wonderful reasoning, so please send Indy back to inky for his tour. He can send him back this way at his leisure.

Just don't show him how bad the playfield looks these days! Though, I'm still surprised at how well the sound has held together in the, what, eighteen years now since its come out?

Check - that's a plan. Gives me a little more time to collect my photos.

I picked up a special insert for the diary on Tuesday, too.

I wholeheartedly agree, Inky! It's wonderful that the guys passed the baton in person and it's always nice to see the faces of the hosts. Great additions to the project.

Awesome job, Nick. Love your duplicate Indy clones, too! (With those 3 together, I can imagine a 'See no evil, Hear no evil, Speak no evil' scenario!)

HOORAY! Indy made it to the Musée Méchanique! I suspect we'll be seeing him with the WW2 submarine that it is permanently docked right next to it. If not, Tash gets 10 lashes from one of his OWN whips!

Say it ain't so, Sabo. The machine's playfield didn't look too worn down in September 2008!

What makes you think you can't participate Drifter ? It's an ongoing project...

I have asked for a few years now, and it has been a no-go every time for some reason.

I've never said no - you want in, you're in. He just may not reach you any time soon.

I was not talking about you, friend. But, I do want in, and if it takes a long time; that is fine with me. And thanks.

It's pre-production art for the game "Staff of Kings". See page 5 of this thread for details.

Thanks for waiting folks. Here we go... let the adventure begin!

There's the Bay Bridge, so I must be on the Embarcadero.

I'd love to stop...


I'd love to stop and grab a bite at the Ferry Building, but I have a meeting with Wah Chang and I can't be late.

The line for the Cable Car is too long. I better walk. Maybe I'll catch one later.



NOTE: That's actually a really short line at the Powell turnaround. I had lousy luck capturing a long line. Also, never wait there. Walk one block up and catch it at the unmarked stop in front of the H&M.

Wah Chang said he had a lead...



Wah Chang said he had a lead on some... merchandise that hit the market. If I'm right, it might lead me to the lost temple of Chaac-Mool.

There's the restaurant where he told me to meet him.



It's best if you imagine Doug Lee narrating these.
