Odysseus' Trip Details and a Zella Update

I received a more detailed update from Odysseus' current holders. The e-mail says they received him in Arizona and took him home to Medford, Oregon. He then went with them across the country to see a graduation in Manassas, Virginia and while the travelers were in the area they visited Washington, DC and took him to the World War 2 Memorial, the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum, the Washington Memorial, and the Lincoln Memorial among other things. They sent me a TON of very awesome pictures of which I am extremely grateful. They then said that they will give Odysseus to the graduate who got a trip to Europe as his graduation present.

I am currently trying to track down what happened to Odysseus between Tugman State Park and Arizona but I assume that he went there with the people who received him in Oregon. Of some things we can never be certain!

On another note Zella is in Russia thanks to my best gal pal and her missionary friend. Zella has been left with some people and hopefully I get an update soon.

Updated Map

New map showing Odysseus's latest entry. That makes his journey around 3,500 miles so far not counting any side places he went or stops he made along the way. Awesome!

Odysseus in Washington DC!

It's been a very long time since I started this project. I sent out a few bears and they all seemed to get lost and tonight in my restlessness I checked my e-mail to find an update, from Washington! The message read like this: "Received: Jun 11, 2010 Odysseus is on the move. Look for him in Europe in the near future. Is the middle east on his travel plans? Have a good one, "

I'm very very excited, especially since they sent me a picture as well. Hopefully we get an update soon as they hinted at over-seas travel!
