No worries harvey. While I depart in the next 48 hours, he has another 10 days or so to reach his destination. No doubt the good Doctor is running on his own schedule - and hey, "it's a long way to Culver City sweetheart" (to paraphrase Indy).

Not as long as we thought. Shows as "delivered". Is Indy unpacking as we speak?

No need to apologize. Feel free to update the other columns because it would be nice to see some, y'know, Indiana-Jones-related contributions from you.

Here's a phoque!

There's another phoque!

And if you can't phoque-ing figure it out by now, here's a phoque-ing sign that spells it the phoque out.

And if you don't like it, well, you can get the phoque out.
Ha ha! I've seen those phoques at the wharf and, boy, do they ever stink! There actually might be another way off in the distance of the top photo but that one is spelled, foc.

Love Indy with the Tarzan books. Please post some more photos when you have the chance!

Well, Indy is back from Florida with some great shots in the can (not to spoil but Lance and I got some amazing and unexpected access at the Stunt Show). Pics as soon as I've unpacked...

So, Travelling Indy made it to me in time for my family vacation in Florida. Seemed only right that I took him out to see the sites. Unfortunately I'm not great at photo-editing or smart dialog, so I hereby present the pictures in their unexpurgated form...







Ruins outside the Atlantis ride at Universal Studios



Indy's whip in the AFI "100 Iconic Props" exhibit, Disney Hollywood Studios







Various (original?) vehicle props from Last Crusade near the Indiana Jones Stunt Spectacular in Disney Hollywood Studios



Meeting the (charming) stunt performers after the show. L-R "Marion", Inky_Skin, "Indy", Lance Quazar







Travelling Indy goofs-off with the Stunt Spectacular cast

Hopefully Lance has some additional images to share...

Cool stuff, Inky! Hope you guys had a great time. Nice to see the faces and I really like the photo of the figure in Indy's pocket and the genuine smiles from the stunt folk.

Yes, the vehicles are the originals (there's been much discussion about them here) and they make a great addition to Mini-Indy's travels!

P.S. Rockabiily with a beard?

Ah, Disney World, I miss you already!

Indy, Inky and I had a great time at the soon-to-be-shuttered-forever Indy stunt show. I first caught in in 1991 and it is still terrific all these years later.

The Indy stunt performers were very friendly and generous with their time. (a special shout-out to Mrs. Inky Skin for breaking the ice with them and charming them over to chat with us.)

An added comical bonus at this particular show was how the other actors in the stunt show kept busting on the poor Indy stuntman for being old. But he seemed like a good sport about it. (there were actually two Indy stuntmen, this guy did the opening temple scene and the Flying Wing fight, while another guy did the streets of Cairo fisticuffs.)

I'll see if I can dig up any other pics. Thanks for posting, my friend!

By the way, are there any more of those amazing business cards that were printed up by - I'm sorry, I forget who - that could be sent along to join Indy at his next stop? I sure wish we had some to give to these guys so they could have checked out the site. It was a great idea and would be a lovely way to generate more interest as Indy continues his travels around the globe!

Lance, it's very cool that you & Inky managed to hook up together and I was hoping that you guys would get some shots with the stunt crew (so thanks to Mrs. Inky, as well). Good stuff & hope you had a fun time!

'Twas Nick Turner from The Bay Area of Californye-A who created the card. His graphic was made available for print in post #710.

Nevermind the beard business, Paley. What you need to do is re-upload all of your missing photos (from Anaheim's Disneyland, etc.). Before I managed to download them all, they mysteriously disappeared! They were fantastic and are an absolutely necessity for the doll's travel record! (Does anyone else have them?)

I have 'em archived digitally and can get em to you but it all depends on how reasonable we're all willing to be. All I want is the girl...

Just came back from my parents' home in WV and had a nice surprise waiting for me. Mini-Indy has arrived safe and sound in Nickelsville, VA!

Pale Horse: Sounds good. I'll send you a PM.

Drifter: Hooray! Have fun with it. (You've moved again?)

Lance: Did you find any more Walt Disney World images worth showing?

harvey: I think Inky would agree that you could start posting some of your photos now. The linear flow is kind of out the window so let's see what you've got!

Hey guys, awesome to see this is still going! Pardon my absence, I think I was on the list at one point to show Indy around Korea, but I got caught up in travel and grad school stuff and life...

Anyway, Indy's never looked better!

It's a long way to the top if you want to rock.



Yeah, man. With No Definite Future and No Purpose Other Than to Prevail.



Yes, yes there are bison in 'frisco.

Thumbs up to the musical links. Love the photo with Indy releasing his soul to the tackily-glazed statue (& accompanying "Apes" quote). Is that from the Tonga Room? Thanks for posting more of your pictures. Very commendable & it breathes life back into this thread…keeping it alive. Speaking of which...

My fellow Montrealer, it's awesome to know that AlivePoet is still ALIVE! I was wondering what happened to you. Your name has never left the list in hopes that you'd resurface someday! For a truly GLOBAL trip, this project NEEDS you. Are you still willing & able to host Indy in Korea?

Too right. What's goin' on, Joe Harvey & Larry Drifter? Yes, we all have real lives but don't welch on your commitment. Inky's project has been going for 4.5 years now. Wouldn't you like to see it through until the end? Who wants to be responsible for letting it die?

KEEP IT ROLLIN'!

Nah, that's in Smuggler's Cove. (A place I still recommend you don't visit.) Assuming you find your way back here in the near future, a visit to Longitude is in order. It's not quite a tiki bar; it's... "Tropical Equatorial".

Joe and his Volcano ain't got nuttin on me!

I've got a tonne of 'em. Unfortunately not all of them turned out well since it was an exercise in guerrilla photography; had I spent more time composing them, they might have turned out... well, better.

I guess I should have paid more to have those obstacles removed!



Play Deguello, he roared!







Should pretty boys and disco distract you...

I guess Harvey & The Drifter let all the pretty boys distract them.
