Mithrandir & the Hiker are going on an adventure.
I went with Annie on one of her ventures into the mountains for her Graduate Project on Saturday. We went to Linville Falls, NC. Hiker came with us.
On this Independence Day, Hiker visits the National Museum of the Marine Corps outside Washington DC to honor the brave men and women whom have served to help keep our country safe, and free.
Hiker is my favorite character – and many of yours too. I’m always looking for ways to upgrade Hiker to the coolest, most awesome styles. First, he got a new pack, then earlier this year he got a new jacket and pair of pants. Now, I’m thinking about upgrading his hat!
I’ve noticed the Indiana Jones fedora hat is being included in more and more sets – and also, that it can look remarkably like a good old fashioned Tilley Hat – the hat of intrepid explorers and, yes, Geologists (as Annie stands behind me with hands on her hips and a disgruntled look for not putting that first) – all over the world.
So, I’m asking you! Which look for Hiker do you prefer.
NOTE: The results of this poll may or may not influence my final decision 🙂 Also, this is not a contest, just a straight up poll!
In honor of reaching 1,000,000 views, all of the little folks that help make a LEGO a day possible have come out to thank you. You guys did it! You, the fans! Thank you! So, they’ve come together for a little contest for you.
———– *** CONTEST & RULES *** ———–
—Guess the number of minifigs in this photo. These are all the minifigs I own.
–HINT: You can try to count them, but many are blocked and hidden by others – good luck with that.
–HINT: It’s not as many as you might have thought I had, but it’s a pretty good amount.
—To enter, simply leave a comment below with your # guess.
—YOU MAY ONLY GUESS ONCE – so make it a good one.
(I can see where comments come from, so no shenanigans! Be fair to the large number of kids that visit here)
–Look at the previous entries before you guess – if you duplicate a prior guess #, yours will be void.
–All entries MUST have an contact email – or your entry will be void. If you win I need to be able to contact you.
–If no one guesses the exact number, the next closest either above or below, will be the winner.
For instance, if the exact # was 50, and two people guessed 47 and 52. The person who guessed 52 would win as it’s closer. This isn’t The Price Is Right, you can go over!! 🙂
In the event there is a tie for closest both above & below, then the person who entered FIRST will be the winner.
*** CONTEST IS OPEN UNTIL 6pm EST MONDAY MARCH 21, 2011 ***
!!! PRIZE !!!
As stated, the winner will receive the yet to be published photobook chronicling the greatest hits of the two 365 projects.
Pretty fantastic, eh?
Stay tuned because on day 200, there will be a contest. Winner gets a free large print!
