Ok all, we're off!!

I have looked at the map (Click HERE) to try and find a good starting point. I wanted to start in the east since there are still some gaps in the west. I looked at Florida as a starting point due to the better spring weather, but there were a few concerns because one member was only a possibility and the other hasn't been online for a few weeks.

After looking over the map and member participation, I feel the best place to start is in Worcester, MA with kcm1582.

I have sent him a PM to get his address. I want to have it shipped out by the end of the week.

Mission:

Your mission, if you choose to participate, is to get this from coast to coast and in the hands of as many TRS members as possible. I would like kcm1582 to take a photo of it at the Atlantic ocean. Dip it in the water. Then, get it in the hands of the next member.

The banner will have a sharpie (permanent marker) with it. Each person participating should take a photo of them with their RBV and the banner. If they gather as a group, everyone should sign it. Leave room for others to sign later. Then post the photo in this thread and let us know who you have passed it on to.

The goal is to zig-zag across north America with this banner and eventually get it from the Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific Ocean with the banner being dipped in to both oceans.

This will be a fun way for members to meet, a reason to get together as groups, and an over all fun experience.

Thanks in advance to all those who have volunteered and a special thanks to hoosier1104 for coming up with the idea and MountainMike for maintaining the Google map for it!!

I've updated the map with all the latest posts in the other thread before the locks.

Clicking the link in Jim's post will provide you with the latest update at any point.

Jim it was my pleasure and like you said it would be good reason for members to out of the norm with a little adventure. My question is are the members arranging the meetings where ever they want or are we shooting for Ford dealerships since there was no confirmation on this? Either way, LET THE FUN BEGIN!

How far can you go? I can probably get to the Albany/Schenectady area.

We got love for Maine. It is more of a distance factor between members.

I mailed the banner along with a letter and a new sharpie out in a tube yesterday. kcm1582 will probably have it tomorrow. You guys should try to roll the banner back up and put it in the tube to make it easier to pass on from member to member.

THis doesn't have to make it to the west coast right away. I'd like for it to come in contact with as many members as it can over the summer and get to the west coast by the end of summer.
