Fantastic pictures. Indy is looking a little care-worn isn't he ? It's not the years, it's the mileage...

FYI my screen name references the ink on my skin, not the colour of it. Coupled with the beard, I'm full of contradictions aren't I ?

Seriously? That would be sweet! (By the way, thanks for the link to those Alamo trumpets. Very, very cool.)

Keith and I record our latest Further Adventures segment...and Mini Indy is along for the ride!
I finally listened to the podcast. Hard to believe that it's from over a year ago (October 2013). Tempis fugit. When are you going to start showing your photos?

To be honest, it's looking pretty dicey that the figure will ever circumvent the globe at this point. I sincerely hope this project isn't DOOMED.

DRIFTER, where are you?

Yeah, seriously. Planned for next May. Though, there is an equally compelling opportunity in a different part of the world that I might take advantage of. I'll need Dr. Jones in hand by late-April, early-May if we want to attempt at expanding his range. Talk amongst yourselves. I wouldn't want to step on any toes.

Technically Mini Indy will never circumnavigate the globe. Friends in Asia seem rather hard to come by, and there's nobody in Central Asia to slingshot him across to Europe. He has, however, already crossed two of the world's five oceans and that's pretty good! Keep CRUSADING though!

Wonder what's up this hill?



Light at the end of the tunnel already?!



Japan?!



It can't be!





There's gotta be somebody around here that I can directions from!



No, nobody over here.



Hey! That guy looks important! Hey buddy...



...do you know the way to the Noble Eightfold Path?

Is anyone in touch with The Drifter?

Yesterday was exactly 8 months since he wrote about receiving the figure in his last post here at The Raven. That's a long gap for a regular and it raises a couple of major concerns.

Can anyone out there PLEASE contact Drifter and find out what's goin' on? (His 'real name' Facebook account seems to have vanished so I hope he is O.K.)

Here's an outtake from Mini-Indy's very 1st travelling photo session...exactly 5 years + 5 days ago!

Any word on Little Indy? I hope he's not lost...he survived Afghanistan for crying out loud!

Question ♫ Where? Oh, where has The Drifter gone? Oh, where? Oh, where can he be? ♩♬

Looks like the Blue Ridge Mountains are more treacherous than Afghanistan!

Now it's been exactly 10 months since The Drifter said he'd received the doll. I had confidence in the guy but he has just simply gone A.W.O.L. and vanished. To go so long without any contact whatsoever is irritating, to say the least. What the heck is going on?

Has the missing Ravenhead...

1) forgotten about it?
2) lost the doll and is too embarrassed to tell us?
2) fulfilled his master plan of keeping the doll for himself?
3) no computer nor internet access?
4) fallen gravely ill or has passed away? (Let's hope not! *Knock on wood*)

Is there not 1 person out there who has The Drifter's personal e-mail address? I should've asked him for it 10 months ago!

Another outtake:

Stoo. PM me. And clean out your PM's so I can PM you back. You'd mentioned something about Pale Horses archived pictures. Since you're still involved with this, if we can't move forward, we can at least preserve the past.

Good stuff, Pale Horse. Your photos were fantastic and it'd be a shame to lose them (especially the "How-many-licks-does-it-take" Tootsie Pop owl). Please, re-upload with all haste.


**********************************************
UPDATE:
A very kind soul has finally shared The Drifter's e-mail address…and guess what? It's DEAD! Dead, as in: does not exist, cannot receive, etc.
Where in hell has our Appalachian hillbilly camarade disappeared to and how can we contact him? What to do about it?

One avenue to pursue:
Harvey/Joe Stuber (of IndyCast fame) is to be targeted next...because:

1) He *should* still have The Drifter's mailing address.
2) He hasn't posted any pictures yet! (It's only been 2 frickin' years!)

For those who still care…LET'S GET THIS SHOW BACK ON THE ROAD, boys!

*static* Raven calling Larry Cooper! Come in, Larry Cooper! *static*

Someone with time on their hands might be able to DOX him based on information left behind HERE

Not that I am advocating Doxxing as a means to an end. But truth be told, it's all public information that could be found, therein. I'm just too busy.

------------
EDIT:

Stoo, your PM is full again. SIGH

I'll never be able to get those pictures to you at this rate.

Maybe we could recruit Anonymous to track him down
