    Well, the watch is on it's way to OhDark30.

    I added an old nato strap to keep it company on it's travels.

    I think that OhDark30 will be required to set up his own rules to select the next watchbearer. It appears this project has no pre-organized path, just a sort of 'random walk'. Very fun and interesting.

    The travelling Vostok, who wants it?

    Hi there everyone!
    Quick update on the watch's progress (*random walk* is right, duna )

    Colin63's posted it to me here in the English Midlands, should arrive tomorrow. As I'm out of the country from Sunday, I figured to do a quick turnaround before then, and scanning posts saw that the next Brit* was demag, who has kindly sent me his address.

    *following up Chirs1211's suggestion that it does a quick UK tour

    Looking forward to its arrival and posting pics

    Here it is catching up on family gossip. Yes, I seem to have become a Vostok collector

    So I think you should be careful who the watch gets sent to and make sure the journey is fully recorded on the forum so its location is known at all times. We don't want a second watch going walkies. It would be nice if this one made it all the way out and all the way back again.

    Just my two penny worth.
    I don't want to make a big deal of this yet, but Flud Stanley is about to be resurrected.

    I'm an infrequent visitor to the Russian Forum since I mostly visit f71, but I would like to spend some time with your traveling Vostok. I could take him to Big Valley Jambouree, arguably the World's biggest outdoor Country Music Festival, it happens in late July. Nearby are also the world's largest Pysanka, Peroghy, and Garlic Sausage. There's also some giant mushrooms in another town. We call that tour the Koobassa Run, throw in a vodka bar at the end of the tour and our Russian comrade will feel right at home.

    It's -25 degrees Celsius here in Canada. Would you like some pics with the watch next to my thermometer? I'd love to be a part of this!

    PM for address.
