So did Flat Stanley finally reach the end of his travels? I am pretty impressed that he kept going for more than three years.

By the looks of the thread, he disappeared on exactly the day as Silvia, as her posts with his pictures were the last days she posted on this forum. :-k Hope they both did not get locked in Alcatraz accidentally as part of the LA tour. [-o<

Following breadcrumbs now. She did post 3 days of rowing on c2logbook in February 2014, but nothing else for season.

Sorry, Bill, just saw this. Stanley arrived safe and sound on Tuesday. He was surprised as we all were by a late snowfall we had on Friday. Hopefully he will be meeting my young grandson Max soon and this week he will go out with me on the job. 8)

He could come to Wisconsin and then on to Finland in August...? --Done deal! Just got him an extra ticket, Kirby, please make sure he has his passport.

Going back to the station, I know I shouldn't let him ride up there but it seemed to make him happy.

Hi all, after a bit of search I discovered this old thread I thought I'd bounce it in the hope it might jog some memories so did Stanley ever leave Canada?

On this very sad day for many of us in the UK this made me smile, never seen it before, love to know what happened to Stanley ??
If he has demised maybe we should make him a partner/offspring/friend and revive the travels

Yes, condolences to our British and Royal friends :!:

But that is a very relevant question you are posing, Colin :!:
