      Where's Caboose?

      That's right everyone! Caboose is making his triumphant return to the Internet! He's been out for a while, and have gotten lost a few times, but He still enjoys going on an adventure.

      His latest adventure has taken him to a place that has been near and dear to everyone's hearts. The birthplace of the Halo Universe, Bungie!

    • The Results are in!

      Where's Caboose?

      That's right, after the poll and the results tallied, we have the results for who Caboose will be. But as I noticed that there wasn't much difference with the polls and talking to some of the people about their thoughts on which Caboose should be used, I came up with this:


      BAXoB_pCUAAaUDR.jpg:large


      That's right, there will be not one but two Cabooses! There will be a separate list for each one for people to pick and choose their Caboose. And I will say that one Caboose will be present at RTO, and the other at RTX. Which one will it be? Go and find out!

    • We're back... sort of.

      Where's Caboose?

      Okay, so I know a few people have been wondering what's been going on with Caboose. Well long story short... we lost him. A lot of these addresses are short, so we are going to restart the list, which pretty much is me sending a bunch of PMs to people asking if they are still interested and making an address list.

      Another thing I am debating is which Caboose we should use. From what I can tell, we have two options:

      Option 1:
      $T2eC16dHJHoE9n3KgIUcBP786oefmQ~~60_35.J

      Option 2:
      51Zvrf1a9NL._SX342_.jpg

      Option 1 would be the easiest and cheapest way to mail him, but he is also the easiest to get lost. So vote in the poll to see which one we should go for.

      One final note, I'm thinking of bringing Caboose to RTX and mailing him off from there, thoughts?

    • Caboose... where the hell have you been?

      Where's Caboose?

      So a few people have been asking me where Caboose has been. The answer is he has been traveling far and wide, and ended up in a little city called Austin, TX. While there, Barbara played host and showed Caboose around the RT offices! Here are a few pics of his journey. Let's see if we can recognize a few.

    • Caboose Gets Stuck in Germany: Part II

      7 years ago

      Where's Caboose?

      Hey guys, we are back with Part zwei of Caboose's journey. Let's see what he has seen, shall we?

      So after finals were over and done with, Caboose decided to stay just a little bit longer here in Germany. You see, in the region of Germany where I'm staying (Baden/ Southern Germany), we celebrate Fasnet, which is dialect-speak for Fastnacht, which is kinda like Karneval BUT IT IS NOT KARNEVAL, IT IS FASNET!
      It's a huge parade and celebration that takes place during the weekend before and leading up to Ash Wednesday, with all kinds of things to see and people dressed in crazy costumes. Caboose and I went to the parade on Rosenmontag, and Caboose got a little excited and didn't wait for the picture to focus:

      img0084id.jpg

      Very shortly after, I was just about to send Caboose away when he got into my mail, and found a birthday card from my parents. He then demanded that he be allowed to stay for my birthday (I think he just wanted cake).

      img0141oc.jpg

      Yes, I did buy the limited edition Rainbow Six: Vegas just to get that awesome keyring. Totally worth it.
      But anyway, right before Caboose left he decided, as a birthday gift, to do something nice for me, and he helped me with the laundry. It almost helped:

      img0045ha.jpg

      Almost.

      And now Caboose is on his way to merry old England! Germany will miss him, and it wants him to know that it feels a lot safer.

    • Caboose Gets Stuck in Germany!

      7 years ago

      Where's Caboose?

      Hey guys, we are back! Caboose has been MIA for a while, but has been found by none other than Greg in Germany. Let's see what they have been up to, shall we?

      Hey everybody! Sorry it took so long, I kinda had a lot of things going on. I got Caboose in the mail about two days before finals started here in Germany, so I couldn't do much with him at the time. Don't worry, though, because we did a ton of stuff afterwards, and I took several pictures.

      First things first, a few weeks ago I got an e-mail saying I'd received a package--little did I know that it was really a special visitor! (Okay I actually did know). Anyway, I picked Caboose up and we rode home together in the Strassenbahn. It was a little scary at one point, because the ticket controllers got on and Caboose didn't have a ticket! They looked at him funny, but they let it slide because it was his first day in Germany.

      img0048ok.jpg

      When we got back to my apartment, I told Caboose that I didn't have a lot of time to spend with him because I not only had finals, but because I was also in a theater production that took up about 100 hours of my time over the course of two and a half weeks. Caboose didn't mind--in fact, he even offered to help me out with my studying:

      img0145grx.jpg

      Unfortunately Caboose wasn't very much help. About halfway through his explanation of how the Berlin Wall and the separation of Germany was actually just Chinese propaganda and how that was all somehow related to Walt Disney, which is an entirely German corporation with a surprisingly successful translation office in America, I decided that I needed to distract him with something or else I would fail all of my classes.

      img0078zk.jpg

      So I bought a Doener Kebap, a Turkish fast-food kinda thing that is all the rage here in Germany--like, seriously, there's a Doener shop on every block around here. That held him off for a bit, but it made me really hungry too, so I had to go buy and eat one myself. I tore into the delicious flatbread sandwich with lamb, lettuce, cabbage, red cabbage, onion, tomato, feta, and tzatziki as if I were a hungry T-Rex that had just taken down a juicy Parasaurolophus, I realized how I could distract Caboose and work dinosaurs into this journal entry at the SAME TIME!

      img0042ti.jpg

      If you're thinking, "Man, Caboose just rode a dinosaur! I wonder what he's going to do on his next stop!" well, you're going to have to wait until the journal after next, because Caboose in Germany is a TWO-PART ENTRY!

      Where's Caboose?

      Hey guys, we have another entry from Dor aka ArchonNARF. Before you start, I want to let you guys know about submitting journal entries and pictures. When all is set and done, email them to where.is.caboose@gmail.com. I'll post it up as soon as I can. I'll also be starting to add more people to the list soon, so be prepared to receive a message from me (or if you are kind enough, PM me the info). Thanks, and enjoy tales from Dor!

      I live in Johannesburg, South Africa. First I have to put a few things to rest: no I don't have any wild animals as pets, no we don't have wild animals roaming the city. If you believe that you are obviously not educated enough.

      Before Caboose I was terrified that he was lost in the mail. Thankfully he arrived safely. When he first arrived I tried to think what to do with him. Instead I was lazy and just carried him with me every where.

      Also being the lazy persons that I am, I forgot to take pictures. He tag along a with me on a date(he really enjoyed the movie) a few other trips out and he joined for the first week of school. Needless to say, he did not do well.

      Since I did take a few pictures, here Caboose sleeping, protecting Sheila (my computer and yes that's its actual name). Also a picture of my friend dancing with Caboose.

    • Up Next... Kelly from Waco, TX!

      Where's Caboose?

      Okay guys, after a whole week of holiday cheer and glee, we continue with another entry to Caboose's Travels worldwide! Next up is Kelly!

      Hello there, most of you know me a KellyRenea on the site. I live in Waco, Texas. It isn't really known for much except the crazy Branch Davidian incident that happened a long time ago. I was very lucky to have Caboose for the week of Christmas so he came with me to see family and friends around Texas.

      Caboose and I had a pretty awesome week. On Saturday when he arrived I took him skating. He had a great time .. though there were not skates that actually fit him.

      picture1lk.jpg

      We also ate some delicious pizza rolls at Double Dave's and then went for yogurt

      picture2xp.jpg

      Later at home I introduced Caboose to my cats. Unfortunately, they did not get along as well as I'd hoped.

      picture4pbt.jpg

      He came to work with me for a few days and watched me take calls and mingle with my other desk toys.

      picture5uc.jpg

      He came with us down to San Marcos to see some friends for Christmas. We made Ninja-bread cookies and exchanged presents. I gave Caboose a Lego light saber and a gun, He seemed to really like them.

      picture6ah.jpg


      Unfortunately, there was a mysterious fire and Caboose wanted to get out of town quickly for some reason...

      picture8aj.jpg

      We drove through Austin and if it hadn't been Christmas I would have stopped by the RT office.

      I don't know exactly how these posts are suppose to go but I hope you guys enjoyed the pictures!
      Having Caboose for a week was really fun. He's on his way to South Africa now to see Dor!

      No Caboose's were harmed in the making of this journal.

    • First up: Buffalo, NY

      7 years ago

      Where's Caboose?

      Since I'm starting it off, I'll give my little story on my town, Buffalo.

      Buffalo is the second largest city in New York, and is part of a group of cities that have been deemed Rust Belt Cities. Buffalo had a number of claims in the early 1900's and has one of the oldest zoos in the United States. After the shift in resources and money, Buffalo started to lose some its fame and nostalgia. But it still holds strong and is home to two major sports teams: The Buffalo Bills and the Sabres.

      Another claim to fame that came out of Buffalo is the world famous Buffalo wings. And who has the best wings, you may ask? Duff's. These wings are the claim to fame with their mild being medium, medium being hot, hot being spicy, and spicy being "holy crap why did I eat that?!" Another claim to fame that these wings have is that when Obama stopped by in Buffalo, he bought a few of these very wings! Crazy right?

      That's it for this post, next up is Kelly. Can't wait to see what she comes up with, it will be a lot cooler than this.
