Very funny that I read this thread right after another Oklahoman :cool laugh:

It should work out great for TIG to visit Tishomingo and me arround the same time since I live in Enid .

How far is Tishomingo from Enid ??

Not alot of sites to see hear in Enid - or at least compaired to a Trip to China (damn Marco that trip must have been sweet!!)

Well........ Tish is about 2 1/2 hours from Stillwater, so it's about 3 1/2 hours away from Enid.

Welld done, Paul!!! Very Happy

And great to see that more of us want to spend some time with Tiggy to show him around.

I hope Josh can take him on one of his camel tours. That would be great.

When he is back in Europe next year in July, hopefully a lot of us can make a group picture with him at Celebration Europe.

It would be cool if the TIG traveller could make it to CE2 for a group pic.

Anyway here are some long overdue pictures i promised.

The TIG arrived just after my holidays, so i could not show him around or take him on trips, but it was still an bloody hot summer when he arrived at my doorstep, so he enjoyed relaxing in the sun and checking out the pool we had set up for our refreshment.

Cheers, Dennis.

Wow really cool Idea, love the pictures. I am willing to show Tiggy the Philadelphia area when he comes to the US. I was thinking maybe maybe the liberty bell and independence hall. It would give me a really good reason to visit the sites again. I haven't seen them since I was in grade school.

This guy is going to be famous with all his traveling and probably one of the best ideas a forum could have to involve so many members in so many different places.

Ooops, my bad guys!!! Embarassed

After I came back from China, I put part of my luggage aside, and haven’t checked since. He is still in a suitcase together with some other souvenirs. Sorry about that.

Tiggy is fine though, he had a good time, spending a few weeks with some geisha dolls. Very Happy

Perra, pls PM me your address and I will send him off to Sweden to keep you company and join you at the convention!

Did he make it to Sweden?
I would like to add my name to the list of recipients.
I would like to have him come to Canada and to take him up to the cottage in the summer. Wasaga Beach, Ontario is the worlds longest "freshwater" beach in the world.
Thanks

Clint

If tiggy's over in Europe I'd happily put him up for a few nights.

Maybe when he gets found you instigate a rule..If you can't get some pics with him within a week, and then send it on to the next person...don't stick your hand up for him to come stay at your place? Seems pointless to try and keep this going if people don't want to make a real effort here.
5 month stop overs is a little silly. Shocked

Love this idea, like most I thought of doing this a year or so ago when I got a 'Meccano' Boba Fett that turned out to just be a HK Fett with the COO craftily buffed off! thought about making use of the ruined figure in this fashion, unfortunately my dog Rocco had other plans!

I'm definately up for this though, so please add me to the list and I'll show what a waste land the East coast of England is!
