I am actually AMAZED that after over a year he is still on the radar and we are still going for it.. The longer the journey takes the more of an adventure it is and I think makes the final result more incredible.

Actually, the last Lost update is the last time Joe's posted, and he hasn't been entering challenges lately. The evidence of all those strawberry "rita" cans are enough to give me a months-long headache as well, but it is a bit worrying. Has anyone heard from him?
12/16/2014 03:30:37 PM · #654
LOST is found! And he will spend no more than two more days with me and pictures WILL be had and he'll be on his way to Waddy!

(he needed a little detox time after all those ritas....he's much better now)

Hmmm, I'm nearby if you think that Lost might enjoy taking a detour into the deep swamp for a few days.

PM me if it would not interfere with the way things are set up on his scheduled stops.


It was a request in Post #638 Bear...

Hi everyone. Lost is headed to the Swamp from Miami.
We will see what kind of mischief we can get into, then our little wayward friend will be on the way to visit with ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' spiritualspatula in snowy Colorado.
I may be going to the Keys sometime this coming week, and if it happens, Lost may be getting a chance to see some blue water and do some deep sea fishing. : )

Lost has arrived in the swamp. It's adventure time for our little traveler.
12/30/2014 10:16:27 PM · #663
Well, right out of the box our little pal was in trouble here in the swamp. I turned my back to do something, and when I got back, he was playing kissy-face with one of the local swampy critters.

So, I gave him a good talking to about it while I set up to shoot the sunset. No sooner did I get all set up and start shooting, guess who photobombed the sunset, causing an autofocus problem?

We talked on the way home, and he told me that he was lonely, and wanted attention. We stopped by my shooting buddy Randi's place and he met a nice little penguin pal that had been hanging out with Randi for a couple of weeks. They hit it right off. The new friend did not have a name yet, so now it's name is Found. Found will be traveling with Lost now, so he will not be lonely while he's in transit.

Life is good, in the Swamp.

Lost, and his new pal Found had a good week. They got to go for an air boat ride, and also had a walk into the Fakahachee Strand swamp. Monday they went to Mount Dora, in central Florida. Here they are in Mt Dora Monday night with their pal Wile Coyote. Wile has been my traveling pal since 1999.
Photos from the Everglades NP adventure coming soon.
It will soon be time for Lost & Found to move along to visit with ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' Spiritualspatula.

My 2 cents. Lost seems to be getting a concave stomach....

I've noticed in recent photos that Lost seems to be getting a not-very-penguin-like concave stomach. I recall Robert ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/user_id/30861.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/user_id/30861.gif', '/') + 1) . ' bear_music and I added some "stuffing" while he was here (plus occasionally a small rock to weight him down because the wind was howling at the time, but that's something different again).

I'm sure the amount of handling and being stuffed into a box has been stressful for him :-). I think he needs some help to look a bit more like his former well fed self. Perhaps Waddy or one of Lost's soon to be hosts would "feed" him something to fill him out a bit, cause he's still got a few more miles to go... :-) ?

It's all that boozing he's been doing and not eating his fish flavour stuffing.
Great idea though to fatten him up please someone :)

Lost & Found went to the Everglades National Park, at Everglades City!
Then they got to ride an airboat at Lake Trafford.
When everyone got home, they were hot, tired, and missing their snow, so we did the best we could with some refreshing ice from the refrigerator.
We may get a chance to do some more swampy stuff later this week.
It looks like they will be moving along sometime this weekend, to continue their journey from here.

Today, Lost & Found went to work with me. First, we drove 85 miles, then changed out a 30 HP refrigeration compressor.
After we got the compressor working, they got a chance to get in the cooler and check out the strawberries. They loved it because it was 34F in there.
We're back home now, tired, but happy.
