I'm sorry I've been so behind with Thwacky's blog! I've gotten Eve MG's and Nonny's stories and pictures posted, and I will hopefully be able to add the Meet and Canuckistan's pictures tonight.

I'm just bumping this to get to know what fishy is up to at the moment. Is he still in Canada? Did he get to ride with the Mounties? Is he snowed in?

Thwacky just left callee on his way to RingKeeper (I think). Of course I'm behind on the blogging again, but I will try to get caught up.

Geez, Minstrel. I hardly got ditched by a rubber fish at the club. I ... um, merely encouraged him to seek true love.

Yeah, that's it. [lol]

So far he's taken 142 days to visit 13 people. That's an average of just under 11 days per stop. With another 61 people to visit it'll take him a year and nine months to get to the bottom of the current list.

At the rate he's travelling, it will be October or November 2008 before he gets to Something, who is at number 74 on the list. I'm at number 47, and I expect to see him at about this time next year. Is there anything we can do to speed him up a bit?

Well, keep in mind Em that those 11 days average per person includes shipping. Depending from whence to where, that can take between 3-5 days, leaving an average of only 5-6 days actually spent with the person. When you then remember that during those 5-6 days the person has to:
1) clear time in their schedule to take a fish sightseeing - I don't know about you, but I'm just not flexible enough to drop everything I'm doing because a fish arrived in the mail.
2) take the fish out, get the pictures, etc. In my case the involved finding someone who owned a digital camera and waiting till they were home so that I could go over and borrow it. Then I had to wait again till they were free to go back over to their house and dump the pictures off the camera and into email.
3) track down the mailing address of the next person on the list. In my case it took a day just for the next person to respond to the PM and email I sent
4) find time to get down to the post office to mail a parcel - you can't just stick a stamp on and dump it in a regular mail box, eh? Plus that sucker cost me over $10 to mail! Do you realise that that means as a group we would have spent close to $1000 on mailing a fish around north america? somewhere in the third world alex trebek is burning us in effigy.

In other words, when you first look at the numbers you're throwing around, sure, it does look unbearably slow, but upon closer inspection I think the times have been pretty reasonable.

The only way I can think of that you could speed it up is if you could actively consolodate at snopes gatherings. For example, since the fish made it to the toronto gathering, we could have just snapped a few group shots there and then not bothered to mail it out to the toronto people separately, but rather sent it on it's way to the next non-toronto person on the list.

Callee, I realise there's a lot more involved in sending Thwacky around than just taking a photo of him, that was my point. Is there anything we can do to speed things up?

Even a saving of one day per person gets him to the end of the current list almost two months earlier. If everyone takes just one day extra he won't make it until 2009.

The snopes gathering idea is one suggestion, however the time taken to set up a gathering to coincide with his arrival might negate the potential time saved unless everyone in the area clears their schedules for three weeks either side of his ETA, just in case.

I went on a "barbecue crawl" in Lockhart a few weeks ago and one of the joints had a jackalope head mounted on the wall. I am abuzz, let me tell you, with ideas for Thwacky's visit.

Well, and with Corona. Yum!

I even cheaped out by using the same padded envelope in which he came to me, I just taped over the former address! It's not that he's big or heavy, but esp with the two of them they make a rather irregular shape, and thus the post office said I had to send them parcel post, and with those dimensions the cheapest price was $10 and change. For $50 something I could have overnighted him, but I thought I'd let him suffer. Besides, him and wacky needed some alone time.

It just gives us one more reason to stick around the ULMB. It's not like any of us joined the board just to take a picture with Thwacky (I hope!?!?)

Maybe I'll be able to take pictures of Thwacky waiting for DS at the bus stop (come Sept 2007 [Big Grin] )

That being said, there are quite a few NC snopesters... can you just consolidate us?

I think it only cost me less than $2 to send him from CA to MI. Remember callee is Canadian. That's probably $10 Canadian. I don't know if postage rates are higher in Canada, either, or if he was sending it to the US and that made it cost more.

I think the only place we can reasonably shave the time is during the sightseeing since express shipping is rather cost prohibitive (especially if the second fish is driving up the cost). If everyone can just commit to getting their pictures done and Thwacky to the post office as soon as they possibly can, we should be able to shorten the time spent. It isn't possible for everyone to keep it under 5-6 days, but I'm sure some of us can.

One benefit of being further down the list is time to plan what to do with Thwacky. For myself, I already know exactly where the pictures will be, I have lots of free time, the post office is 4 blocks away and I have my own digital camera. I can't foresee keeping him for more than 2-3 days, and if the delivery time and my transportation works out I could possibly even have him back in the mail the next day. If everyone can make getting Thwacky back in the mail as high a priority as they can given their existing commitments that should be all we need.

Another idea: Since there are two fish now, what about splitting them up? Two fish, two tours, half the time.

He was sending the fish to Newfoundland, which I guess raised rates, since it's at the eastern extreme of the continent. The duo cost me $6 to send to callee, but the two of us live relatively close to each other.

I think rates are just higher here. I was expecting to pay $2-$3.

It's based on size, weight, and distance. And how nice the postal employee is when it comes to making sure you get the best deal. I always ask them to price all of my options and how long each will take. I expect to pay a fair bit since I'll be sending out of the country. With Canada Post, XpressPost in a small box might actually be cheaper than regular mail in an envelope. I know, it's screwy.
