Perfect...

I don't see why not, I may have to manufature "rolling eye'' stickers if he's to pose infront of a "Refer Madness" poster!

Hopefully that gives us some time to get to NYC as well, (have to find a nice historic district).

Did Indy ever do So. Ca?

My annual passes to the mouse house expired, though we want to renew them before year end. Depending on the route taken 'round the globe, he might be able to visit the Temple of the Forbidden Eye....

But at $72.00 just to walk through the turnstiles, $216 for a family of 3, it might be a bit of a stretch if he's in CA before July....

There are other places in CA though we could possibly go. Queen Mary, San Diego Wild Animal Park, Mann's Chinese Theater, La Brea Tar Pits...

Consider yourself added to Indy's itinerary Pale Horse. The Queen Mary would be neat due to its association with the Indy Summit.

Guys, you are all now responsible for contacting the next person on the list to determine addresses etc. I look forward to your regular posts in this thread detailing Indy's journey.
Re: Turkey. Were your friends going to visit or do they live there? Is Turkey off the itinerary? I still have Les/throwmetheidol's mailing address from when I sent him a gift, so we're good to go if Indy is off to the great Dominion of Canada next. Can't wait to see the mini diary. You're a true Idea Man, inky!

Not if the entries are meant to be "kiddie-friendly"! I'll keep you abreast of the situation should it pop up.

@Pale Horse: The Tar Pits would be a nice addition. Get a shot of Indy and a woolly mammoth!

Yeah, it was either Switzerland/Malta with you, or Turkey with them. No worries though, there will be other opportunities.

I just hope the mailmen of the world do their job...

Excluding the mammoth, the others were intentional!

Fingers crossed. The Swiss Post is pretty efficient (like everything else here) so nothing to worry about for that leg of the journey.

The one who we can't really trust is Lance! (Just joshin'!)

A thousand apologies Lance - Christ, it's not like I don't write your address often enough. Your location has been hurridly amended. Um, is there actually anything worth seeing in Culver City (apart from the F'ing) ?

Lance, how successful was this? How many times did he change hands before he was "wiped clean by the Wrath of G_d"? From where to where to he travel and how long did it take?

No offense to Inky but shouldn't this thread be in "Fanwork and Activities" or "Globetrotting" sections?

I think he probably made around 6-7 stops.

I will find the thread and link to it.

If nothing else, this thread has given me the nudge I need to post those final photos that I never actually put up from two years ago.

I'm happy for it to be moved (Pale Horse ?). To be honest as we were discussing a Hasbro figure I defaulted to the Collecting thread. However, either of your suggestions would be more suitable.

Well, the Museum of Jurassic Technology is rather awesome. It's not well known, however, and the Masonic Hall down the street may confuse people.

@Billy Ray - be awesome if we could fit you in. If we got him to you by 01-06, do you think you could get him to NYC by 01-07 ?

@Pale Horse - thanks for the thread move ! This is far more appropriate.

Yes! "Hollywood Follies" Thanks for moving the thread, Paley. Just hope it doesn't screw up anyone's subscription or ability to find it. On the plus side, the switch might widen the opportunity for more locations/involvement.

Billy Ray, yes, if you can do this please let Inky know ASAP because the figure will be delivered by me and we'll need to touch base. You're in Afghanistan? Stay safe, my friend.

Perhaps we could convince, AlivePoet or Peru1936 (who are Canadian ex-pats living in Korea) to take up the task for the final leg after Australia?

Yeah, pretty sure I can have him there by 1 July, Our mail going out of here goes by way of the east coast, so that should be plenty of time.
