    Family WWing traveling plaque

    Taking off of Matt W's idea.

    We need a Plaque made like the logo here on the site. It would have to be small enough to fit into a fixed rate shipping box from the post office.

    How it would work. Lets use Larry as an example, he likes to be picked on.

    Larry has the plaque, he takes it to local areas of interest, takes a few picture of the plaque and himself or just the spot in question. He post the pictures. He then says PM for who wants it next. First PM gets it shipped to them. No one but the sender knows where it went until the next set of pictures are posted. Then the cycle just keeps repeating.

    That's true and I love Toni's work but the shipping could be a killer ;-)

    I think this is a cool idea and would like to participate.

    If Toni works fast he could bring it with him and have pics taken in his home town.

    USPS has Global Flat Rates for Canada and the rest of the world. Currently $11.45 and $13.45 for a four pound box.

    FWIW.

    This site is unique in that there are many folks from different countries, and we would not want to leave them out. So, guys and gals, from out of the USA, how does your postal/shipping system handle this?

    Just saying this as it might set a limit on size and weight so more folks could participate.

    In any event, count me in.

    I think it's a good idea! After all, not everyone can have Lokai in the picture. Maybe I should have had everyone sign my dog.

    Carol has got some great thoughts there. It would be great if we could tailor the size to allow a wider audience. You folks outside the lower 48, give us some input please.

    I dont count the Canadians as foreigners. No matter how many times I go into Canada I never feel like Im in a foreign country.
