We will not let Lost run for President, even if he might be smarter than a certain wealthy developer ... besides, he's already crossed the US and is too far behind schedule to backtrack now.

It's only about 1 year behind LOL at least the pair of them are still doing the tour and we are still documenting it.. When all is done & said I will be asking everyone to edit 3 of their best pics from the tour and send them to me for the legendary book.

Hey, my wife's family is from Iowa. It's pretty there. (she is also looking over my shoulder) At the rate the penguin is going though, MAK will be lucky to get back much more than a dust bunny.

Edited: to fix, and say DARN YOU AUTO CORRECT!

Progress report on the travels of Lost and Found.

yesterday, I took the little guys to the top of San Bruno Mountain for a panoramic view of the Bay Area and then over to Marin County for one last close up of the Golden Gate Bridge. The remainder of San Francisco's streets were in use by other vehicles on a perfect Tourist day, so we retreated to home base. Pictures to follow.

This morning, Lost and Found are on their way to Treasure Island - an island mid-way between San Francisco and Oakland. The ceremonial handoff to ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/user_id/1031.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/user_id/1031.gif', '/') + 1) .

With it already being close to 2 years behind schedule (but fun) it would not be an option to add people to the list as it is still a lot of people waiting for ages and ages etc, hope you understand :)

He's nearing the end of his US tour and will soon be off to another (hopefully more quickly paced) hemisphere.

Or maybe continents?
His passport goes from England & North Wales, to Finland, Norway, Germany, Macedonia, Italy, Canada and the USA.
Of the 55 DPCers Lost is slated to visit, he's now on #39. So, yes, he's taking a leisurely stroll through our DPC world, but he is progressing!
07/27/2015 05:02:32 PM · #740
I meant, only two countries on your continent :-).

He's doing great. Seeing him visit all those amazing locations, and to think we used to have him right here in this room!
