Sara: The World Traveling Ceratopsian


Recommended Posts

Here is a fun project that originally got started with a dino named Gorgeous George. It would have been great until someone decided they didn't want to play and took their ball home! :(

 

This is how it will be played. In a package will be a small dinosaur ( Sara the Ceratopian ) along with a few fossil related items. When you receive Sara, take a picture of her in your fossil collection, at a dig site or local landmark to record her journey. She will have her diary with her so please write a very brief message in it for prosperity as it will travel with her and other receivers can read your note.

 

Kindly take one item and one only ( not Sara!) for yourself and replace it with something small fossil related from your collection to send onto the next member.

It will be similar to geo-caching.

Take an item/ leave an item.

Once you send the parcel off to the next person, please post the picture of Sara at your leg of her journey.

 

We would like to keep this going around the world, so if you ask to be a part of her travels please keep the game going.  Lets see how much if the world she can visit.  George didn't get too far!

Add your name to the list if you want to play. Members that have already recieved Sara will check their name off the list as we go.

Please contact the next member going up the list for their shipping information.

The question is how do we decide where it goes next?  Pick names from a bowl similar to the Secret Santa thing or have the reciever decide who is next? 

It will have to be sent to people that actually want to play it.

Maybe we could create a master document .. a GoogleDrive spread-sheet with name/address. Indication of where she is at the moment.  We could just go in order ? .. using the signup sheet as an itinerary of sorts.  The Hyperlink can be stored here in the post and be open to editing from anyone that uses it ? .. and wants to participate.

 

You look at the next person on the list .. send it away.

 

Cheers,

Brett 

 

PS. I could set that up if need be.

To be fair, it was Florian ( Abstraktum) that wanted to start up a new one and therefore should be the first recipient of Sara and her luggage.

Um, I personally don't have the technical knowhow to pull that off, nor the power to edit something beyond the 24 hour limit.

Might we ( you!) take this matter up with the admins?

No worries .. I can set it up now and you can imbed the link in your first post up above ? ... if you want. No need to worry about the post edit limit ... we will be editing the document via GoogleDrive.  I 'think' you don't need an account to edit share-able links.

 

Let's try it shall we ?

 

I'll set up the link .... you let me know if you can see and edit the file.

 

Cheers,

Brett

It looks like an edit capable list. We can give it a go I guess.

 Are you sure that Sara isn't Gorgeous George wearing a cow-shark symphyseal as a bonnet, for disguise? Very clever, those dinos.

Please count me in, too!  I'll have to convince Viola not to keep Sara when she arrives, though - she love toys A LOT! :P

Oh my! How did you lose your finger? Was it a fossil related accident?
