Koosh Dart World Tour

Thanks to Boff, Ross Varn and a couple of other Redditors, inspired by BFU, we have agreed to send this brave Koosh dart around the world, with each person who receives him taking a picture with some local colour in the back ground and then select another person to post him to, until he comes back.
This is the only place "Beaker's" travels can be seen, I will keep updating this post to show you all where he is.

This is Beaker, wide eyed and ready to travel.


The rules are simple
Rules-
1-No firing the dart! It's travelling, it's fighting days are done, losing it will end its tour too soon.
2-You as custodian should photograph the dart at an interesting local landmark or whatever you think sums up where you live. You may add decoration to the dart, no bigger than 10mm x 10mm if possible.
3- You may then pick another nerfer to send it to!
4.- Only send your mailing address via internal messaging, not via email and only if you are comfortable doing so. If you are under 18 seek permission before asking for the dart!
5- EMAIL ALL PICTURES TO foamdataservice@gmail.com and I will add them to the thread.

Here is the first few pictures, taken at Bolt Tail, looking back towards the coast and out towards the channel and the Atlantic.





He is heading to BSUK first, then off to America. Keep track of his latest custodian and you can ask to be next!

Top tip- bendy drinking straws make good "selfie sticks" for travelling Koosh darts.

Imgur Album is here

Get him up to Edinburgh when you can please Smile

Place holder post for my album.

I've given Spud the job of taking Beaker out around Bristol. I don't think she gets out enough because she's /far/ too excited by the prospect. Either way, she's got most major Bristol landmarks covered. Very Happy

Provided it's gluten free cake, you're on. We live 5 minutes walk from there. Razz

Thats why I suggested it Very Happy You nearly have enough stuff not to go out of Clifton.

noted on the Gluten-free aspect of cake now.

THREAD NECROMANCY BECAUSE I CAN!



Beaker by the Clifton Suspension Bridge a couple of weeks ago; note we only pictured one half of the bridge because the other half is currently covered in scaffolding. :/

EDIT: I'm still hunting down the other photos for a full Imgur album. It would seem I'm missing an SD card from somewhere which is a little disconcerting.

EDIT #2:


Literally 5 minutes walk from the office, we have BBC Broadcasting house, home to BBC Factual and the Natural History Unit where the production of projects like Blue Planet are co-ordinated. I can't find any of the other photos Spud took when we went pottering about the city, including the historic Harbourside and probably the SS Great Britain. The Clifton Suspension Bridge crosses the Avon Gorge that marks the western edge of the City of Bristol. Designed by Brunel, it's one of the enduring symbols of the city and its engineering history. 150 years later, a couple of medical science graduates and an archaeology graduate decided the best way to further that engineering legacy was in the design and production of parts for foam dart guns... Very Happy

E mail those pictures, then I can add them to the master album and update the other places this is circulating! Thanks for getting him on his way.

That picture is huge, you want the Large Thumbnail code off imgur.

I will take him for a few landmark shoots. Let me know if I am taking him before or after he crosses the pond. I have a contact in Germany who may take him.

So I've had custody of the wee chap for ages now but have been so busy I haven't managed to get much done.

I nipped out at lunchtime today to my favourite spot in Edinburgh, on the side of Arthur's Seat looking towards Edinburgh Castle and the centre of town.



Tough to get the wee guy in focus as well but there you go. He'll be on his way back to BN HQ in the next few days with a Scottish stamp on his "passport" Smile
Big_Poppa_Nerf.

Let me know if he can head this way. I am sending a care package to Germany and it would be awesome if Beaker was in it!
FDT

Shall I  post straight to BPN?
Boff

BPN, can you get Beaker through in under a week? If so, yes. I've got the US destination eagerly standing by.
OldNoob

It needs to go elsewhere first, BPN, you will have to be Bridezilla at the back of the queue for now, he's going East.
FDT, possible shipping address change, will have a destination to you by 10pm tonight.
FDT

No probs ON Smile
Big_Poppa_Nerf.

No worries. I was just inquiring as I do not know Beakers itinerary.

If the tour manager would be so kind to post current dates in the form of a Rock Band Tour Poster, it would be most appreciated.

Also, i am no bridezilla............ I am Godzilla!
OldNoob

He's finally resurfaced! Thanks to All the Right Moves Beaker is now in the USA, on the East coast.

Boston


George's island.

More from there in the imgur album. This is just the highlights.
