We're going to get some pictures for This Guy (hopefully) today.

If there's anybody who can get him closer to something Pillsbury picture worthy than we can, let me know. Otherwise, I'm going to try to find a cache near to one of the plants and set him free again. (Probably late next week)

Not only could you get his picture with "Pillsbury" things, but you could also take that photo next to the sign that reads "Pillsbury State Forest"!!! It may be too far of a drive, but I was just brainstorming is all...

Here's a little info page, and some photos I took...

Perhaps he could meet up with this one:

LOL, I recognize the Snobird - how'd he end up back in MN?

Here's another doughboy to meet up with...in fact, when I first saw the thread, I thought this was the bug! This one was stuck in MN for 8 months, stuck in my suitcase to Boston, too big to fit in any caches I visited there, brought back to MN, shipped to Iraq, and is now in Michigan. Not bad for the lil' guy!

The Doughboy

Anyway, I'm sure any of the five or six General Mills cachers could get any of the TB's an insider's view with some cool pics (as could my wife, who works there twice a week as well)...too bad nobody's put a tag on a Toro mower or we could do the same for them! Wink

Actually, sunrisers, who are my parents, brought him back from AZ. My dad is retired from Pillsbury. Probably where the thing came from to begin with.

Take him here -- the Pillsbury family grave marker is HUGE!!!! I took a doughboy Tbug there for a photo-op once (TB8D77)
You can barely see the TBug there on the base of the gravestone. The TBug is not a small one - it is actually about 6 inches high.
