Many thanks to Bill Jones for coordinating the Landy Travels going forward. Bill has offered to get this project going once again as I have not been as efficient as I should have. If you want to participate:

1) Email your name and full mailing address to Bill at landytravels@gmail.com
2) Agree to a 2 week turnaround in which you will mail the Landy and the Passport. at your expense to the next address which Bill will provide.
3) Agree to post pictures on the Facebook page Mattel Landy Travels as soon as your visit is over. Obtain a post mark if possible and sign the Passport.
4) Have fun. Anyone can participate.
5) By accepting these terms, you agree that the Landy is Mattel property and the Journey is a project directed totally by Jim Gallegos Albuquerque, New Mexico USA.
6) Agree to return the Landy and Passport to Jim Gallegos upon request with no objections.

Jim,
I would also like to see the pictures on the forum's own pages.
I am not on fb and so are many others.

Fear not Marcel,

The Facebook page will contain all the pictures and is just another way to bring the collecting community on board, we are also quite aware that lots of people are not on Facebook which is why the journey will continue to be documented here on the forum as well, and other forums should they so choose to do so, as well as that the entire Journey will be uploaded in the coming weeks to the Gatherings very own website

http://www.mcgathering.com/landy-s-journey

On the website I have also started to create a statistics page so we can all see just how far the Landy has travelled since it began its journey.

If you would like to participate in the Landy Journey please contact me at landy.travels@gmail.com and i will add your name to the list.As Jim has said the offer is open to all diecast enthusiasts.

If you can turn the model around quicker than the 2 week maximum stay it gives more enthusiasts the chance to participate in this great adventure.

Ask all of the forums you participate on to participate in sharing this fun event with the collectors who love die cast. If they refuse, ask them why? No one is or has ever been asked to not participate so there are no excuses if someone refuses. Let's get this project as a way to show off who we are and a little bit about where we live. It is fun, sharing and what this hobby is all about. The people and friends.

Hi Jim and Bill,
I'm ready to send the Landy along to the next destination. The email address above is listed as both Landy.travels and as landytravels
I'm not sure which is correct so I sent an email to both. Just let me know where to send it next.
Thanks, Sammy
