Actually, I think I'll mail myself and the bloody Ted can stay at home!

BTW - Whenever any of you get him... I think one good photo per location/photographer would be good (or I'll end up with pages and pages of photos of him sitting in every form of TVR known to man)

No problems as long as you fit in hand luggage!

Ok my current plan is to post Ted to UKBob from Niagra - Rob mail me your address.

Willing to help - spend most of my time in the far east (currently sitting in hotel room in Tokyo and can't sleep) and the US.

More than happy to bring him along on a trip or two... ;-)

Hmm. You may be cognizant of the Velvet Underground track relating to just such an idea?

Looks like there'll be plenty of shots from Monaco (another Megahooner here!) . I'll also be at Le Mans again in 3 weeks for the Classic so can try and get a few shots there if he's ready in time!

So the "bear-er" will decide whom to send it to from this forum and contact via email or will Ted just fly away from here? This just reminds me of Amelie's travelling garden dwarf... or it was not Amelie? Have you set yourself a time deadline?

The 'Bear-er' will send it to whoever ... but we are hoping to keep it within this forum for a while, so everyone sad enough to want to join in, can. Whoever gets it can look in here to see places/people to send to (we have at least 5 countries now)

I have no say in the matter from now on... I'll just post the pics!

Which you've now got, right?

I plan to do evil things to him

Ohhh, I cant wait!


How will the photo diary work? Are all photos being sent back to one individual who'll upload them to a site?

Here's an idea; are we able to ask Ted (the real one) really nicely if we can utilise the PistonHeads calendar feature? Then we can 'book out' the Ted (considering people's holidays etc. etc) and it will also be a useful "what's he going to do" point of reference?

If not PH then is there an online calendar facility?

No one will want Ted when they find out what I'll be doing with him
