    Classic Canadiana at it's finest Doug
    This should make for some awsome photo's from around the world I can see a little rivalry brewing for the most outlandish photo. Me thinks this is going to be good for a laugh or two.

    Send it to northern Canada in winter. I'll take a shot outside barefoot wearing only shorts and the helmet and a large lager to show how hardy we Canucks are.
    I want to see a pic of it smack bang in the middle of your wall of helmets Doug!

    That should be easy enough to organise, when it's ready to go I'll get a list of the UK addresses and keep track of it as it goes. Then do the same for Europe etc, planning it out with a map should work nicely..... The thread will be updated as it goes so keeping track and planning the next trip should be simple enough. I might even get a wall map and plot it out! Registered mail would be the best way to do it I agree. If anyone gets a particularly harsh postage charge during this game let me know and I'll help out. I'm properly excited about this now, I was looking for a shell on ebay all night with a few possibles turning up.

    Doug do you have any tips for the organisation of it from the GHW projects?

    this is a great idea,and i think every one is going to enjoy it
    from my side
    posting A.P.O to iraq is simple BUT apo mail has to go through the US ,, so posted in the uk ,it will go to the US and then to Iraq ,, it takes time ,and it MUST have a customs declaration on it, and the senders name and address
    this lid will end up being the most traveld german helmet in history(and the most photographed LOL)
    i think , it is going to be a never ending journey,, well a couple of years at least
    is there a cut of date , after which members making 1000 posts are not involved
    other wise it will be a never ending journey ,, and no space left on the lid ,,,,,,,,, we could start again with another lid i supose
    cheers ian

    allso may i sugest that a 1/4" plywood box be made for its travels with some foam to protect it
    i dont believe a cardboard box would survive the many journeys it must take

    cheers ian
