Going good...I haven't organized and pulled some of the better ones yet for this, but you can see some here: Flickr

Tomorrow I should be at a Tigers game (baseball), so he is coming with! And should I be able to keep him through the weekend, Friday I should be able to take him out on the road a little down town Detoit

Bah!

Had great tickets (our work tickets) and couldn't go to the game because I had to work late >.<

So are we pushing this to littleneutrino in ohio next since that stop was missed?

Just a reminder, if Ermete wants to go to the arctic, he needs to be at my doorstep by the 28th. :D

If he's going to be close to the Atlanta, Ga area around 10/24/2009. I could take him to the track (Road Atlanta) for the Porsche Club Driver's Education event. I'm sure I can get Ermete a ride around the track and/or sitting in a car.

So I assume it would be best to ship it off to Napalm Frog now, so he can get up to the Arctic Circle?

So, unless things change, it's coming to me. Thus, it'll see quite a few places. I'm on a business trip to Ottawa, so unless anyone has reserved to do Ottawa, Ermete can tour the nation's capital for a few days.

Then, off to the Arctic Circle! Itinerary is, Toronto Airport -> Edmonton Airport -> stop at Whitehorse, Yukon -> destination of Old Crow, Yukon. I'll take him for helicopter rides, and mountain hiking, and all that there is to do (or lack thereof) in wide open tundra. Note, it is the summer, so please get the picture of 100% snow out of your heads, hahaha. Though, there probably will be ice sheets still remaining in the thermokarstic terrain north of Old Crow. The most epic will be the mass caribou migration (think Planet Earth), so I'm hoping our three days of helicopter bookings coincides with that. And grizzly fattening season (pre-hibernation). Goo times.

Then, coming back is via Dawson, Yukon and Inuvik, North West Territories, and Vancouver, British Columbia instead of Edmonton. So we get to tour lots of airports. And last but not least, see what few things there are to see in Waterloo, Ontario. Then, I'll have him shipped out to whoever is next (Toronto?) the week of the 14th in September.

On that note, does anybody know what the policies are for taking pics inside of an airport? I'll be taking both my D50 and craptastic P&S L10 on this trip, so I'm wondering what is the best so I don't get raped by security, lol.

Don't take pics inside airport. Period.

LOL

Just make sure to take all electronics out of their bags and put them into a bin

Keep your boarding pass and ID with you

Don't forget to take off your boots and belt before going through the metal detector

That's it...besides that you can do just about whatever after you get in the airport

Shipped off today to Mr Napalm, hoping it gets there in time! Shipping across the border is a pain :p If I had my passport, I would have just taken him over and mailed him from inside Canada! Ah well

Added new pics of Ermete!

Haha. This is funny!! I'd be more than willing to take him next time I go to Beijing. I could get pics of him at the Great Wall and Forbidden City!!

Well, I would assume those in southern Ontario would be up next simply due to proximity. Where are you guys abouts? I know quite a few people are from the Toronto region...

That's a great idea. I'm going to add a Bear Travels collection to my Flickr account, so that way everything is in one spot. If everybody could do something similar (using anything, like Flickr, Photobucket, a blog, etc) and then we post these to either the main page or the bear travels blog, that would be great!

And update on Ermete: He has crossed into Canada! After being forwarded from Michigan to Ohio, he is now in the main FedEx hub of the GTA, in Mississauga. That means he will be in my possession either tomorrow, or Friday if I miss the first drop.

EDIT: I'm thinking that Bubbabyte should get it next, as he stated it's a near Niagara Falls location, right? That would work great, because then he can be sent to Toronto, then unless there were other Ontarians, he can slowly head south or west.

Moonman is in T.O and i'm near niagara falls. I don't mind if i get it next, because i think moonman said he wanted me to take it first cause he was away.. but that may have changed. Either way we are all relatively close.

Ermete arrived at the door step, so once I get to the house tonight, he'll be there waiting for me! Three days of Ottawa, then latitude 67? N and higher. YAY! I'll keep everybody posted.:DD
