Great pics Tiggy and co! Would love to see that toyshop :Drool: Leek is a lovely-looking town. I lived in Staffordshire for a few years when I was kid and remember going to picturesque places like Hanley, Burton, Penkridge market, Cannock. Well played retro cardback ATM pic lol!

Hanley? That's only 10 miles down the road, maybe you passed though Leek without even knowing. Wink

Updated List :

General Kahn
Psybertech
TishomingoSith
ourchickenshack
Ozio
Arohk
Jessvader
Commander Clint
Sci-Fi Scarborough & Beard Convention
Star Wars Celebration VII - Anahiem
Kisstour
Walkie


Chris.75
Section 8
Nico
Chopper
Mastertyvokka

This was the last list.  Alex has said he is to busy at the moment so we need to get through thes guys if they confirm they still want him.  As I don't have a clue where everyone is it might be easier to amend this list going off location also so tiggy isn't spending months going across the sea in the post.  I will try to reach out to these guys in the next few days to see if any still want in and their location.  Not sure how Alex was doing it or if he was going by location at all.  If any of the guys above see this before I can get pm messages out, please let me know if your still interested in it.  If you want on the list also let me know and I can add you.  No need for mastertyvokka as I added you to the end, but if you can give me a location maybe if everyone is willing we can try to get him squeezed into multiple stops in one country before he moves to another.

edit: pm messages have now been sent to everyone on the list. After thinking on this for a minute I think those that were on the list need to get priority so the list will stand at those four in order and then a new list can be started for those wanting it after them. The new list can be worked by location, so Mastertyvokka your on the list but if someone in a closer proximity to chopper signs up, we may make a detour to them. I don't really know how Alex was handling the order and I forgot to ask him last we spoke. I think though going on location can save everyone some time as Tiggy wont spend months going across the ocean repeatedly and sitting in customs forever.

Heard back from a few guys and Nico (Andy) has said he is to busy with work at the moment so he asked to be moved off the list and will get back on it when he has time.  Section8 (Andrew) is still up for it, but Chris is in front of him.  Haven't heard from Chris yet, but hopefully he will still want in.  Chopper hasn't gotten back to me either but he has plenty of time before he comes up.  So this makes the current list as:

Chris.75 (haven't heard from yet)
Section 8 (confirmed) (in UK)
Chopper (haven't heard from yet)
Mastertyvokka (confirmed) (in US)

Edit: heard from Chris and he is otherwise occupied. So asked to be taken off.

Dear Diary,

Another road trip and I'm loving the scenery already Smile



Once we arrive I find out we have our only private parking space for a tree house!! I just hope there aren't any furry ewoks here!!







Well after all the travelling there's just a few minutes to take in the views before checking out the hot tub with a nice cool beer Very Happy

Dear Diary,

So I'm still none the wiser to where the hell I am, my master tells me a legendary outlaw once lived here who liked wearing green and if I'm lucky I may get to met him?!?!

So in the meantime lets explore the tree house, hmm what's that little hut up there? maybe it'll have some clues to where I am?



Nope no clues, but check out the tv and pool table!!!!





Knock, knock on the door, who could it be I wonder?? Two dudes in green but wait what do they have in common with a forest! Well the hell LETS PARTY!!!!





*Masters notes* Well tiggy decided to party into the early hours of the morning keeping all the woodland animals up with all the noise. When I decided to wake him up the next day neither Tiggy or I had any idea how he ended up in bed with these bears put at least they weren't ewoks ;D



Check back soon for the further woodland adventures of Tiggy!

Great pics Stef and Tiggy. What a cool looking Ewok village. On second thoughts it looks a bit Twin Peaks so better watch out for log lady and owls and stuff What a Face  

Good to see Tiggy getting wasted again Smile

Dear Diary,

After a lazy morning I popped out for some traditional british grub, fish n chips hmmmm Smile



Later at ten pin bowling I tried my best to imagine that the pins at the end of the lane were the rebel fleet and I was targeting the death star ray at them but I shot was use-less, my master swiped the floor with my rubbery ass.



Back to our digs it was time for a quick spruce up and a hot date with a plastic bunny, just my luck she was aged 1-2 so she had to be home early. Oh what the hell so I drowned my sorrows in the hot tub with a cool beer again Smile

Friday 9th October 2015

Dear Diary,

After popping up in Walkie's latest acquisitions post it was time to gate crash the party and met some family members!



Well what can I say it was pretty obvious from the moment we laid eyes on each other that we were related. In fact we looked that a like I was beginning to wonder if inbreeding was a big thing in our family!!





Time for a family photo, my cousin Ken N'Gunner from America, my Turkish Uncle Uza Gunner and my other Uncle from Poland Un' Artgunner and lastly me on the end Wink



Well after several hours catching up the fun had to end and we had to say our good byes Sad

Stef, whenever Tiggy is ready to visit the next location this is the current list as it stands.

Section 8 (confirmed) (in UK)
Chopper (haven't heard from yet)
Mastertyvokka (confirmed) (in US)

So if you can make contact with Section 8 and get his address when your ready. No rush, just know lots of holidays are right around the corner and don't want Tiggy to be forgotten.

Oh yeah I almost forgot, I think Alex(?) started a tradition with boob shots......just throwing that out there. lol!
