Okay, long story short, for the past few years I've been taking a Hoth Rebel Soldier figure around with me everywhere interesting I go. Why that particular figure? Because Broc Walker gave it to me after C3, and he had been taking its picture in front of things, so I decided to continue the idea.

What makes this figure slightly different than other "traveling" Star Wars objects around the internet is that he always stays with me, and that he's been a LOT of strange places. In the past three years, among other things, he's been in two countries, 11 states, 11 National Parks, Disneyland, Disney World, Las Vegas, San Francisco, driven down Route 66, visited Alcatraz Prison, the Statue of Liberty, to the bottom of the Grand Canyon, had his picture taken in front of the world's largest living thing, been in the Atlantic, the Pacific, the Colorado River, the Gulf of Mexico, the filming locations of High Noon and Iron Man 2, the actual site of the sinking of the Titanic, the world's largest thermometer, the world's oldest McDonalds, and had his picture taken with George Lucas himself. All in all, not to shabby for one small plastic toy.

(Btw, if this should be in the "Blogs" section, my apologies. I've never really considered it a "blog" exactly since it's just pictures, but if the Mods here feel it belongs in the Blog section, please move it, or just LMK and I'll post it there instead.)

Tommy that's great. These are always fun.

Dennis is trying to start up a Imperialgunner traveler, so hopefully we'll have some fun ourselves.

I would have brought a fishing reel and sinker with me on the Titanic cruise and sent the little guy over the side. Would have only been a few hundred feet down but he would have been even closer to the wreck than any other HRS. Razz

I've liked the updates on FB too Tommy so keep them coming!

You can add the Oregon Trail and Yellowstone to his list of travels. This week, he'll be visiting some more geysers, and posting some more video, which is a first for him.

His recent travels
