Take Me With You Photos – Round 3

by Greg on July 7, 2012

Whoa. More than 100 images came in this week alone! While I wish I could post them all, I’m probably already pushing the limit by posting more than 40 of them here.

I’ll be updating a World Map next week showing you all of the states and countries I’ve been to since starting this. I am still amazed by all of the wonderful places you’ve taken me to and I believe this week’s distance winner is my amazing trip to Thailand.

Keep ’em coming! And if you know people in a foreign country, whether friends, family, or pen pals, see if you can get them to play along.

Oh, if you missed previous rounds, you can visit Round 1’s photos here and Round 2’s photos here.

Want to participate? I don’t care if it’s Antarctica or your basement, simply click on the version you want, cut me out, and snap away! Send your photos to the email address listed on the paper and you’ll be famous!

Share the fun on Pinterest! Big thanks to Leslie for suggesting I create a way for people to Pin these photos on Pinterest.

To share with the world, just hover over an image and click the fancy new “Pin It” graphic. Pinterest will load in a new window.


I wish more people were hooked on me.

Smugglin' me across the border.

These cars would have parted like the Red Sea had we been in my fire engine.

If not tied to this stake, my propeller would have launched me into the stratosphere.

Arrival in London. Not quite the city limits sign I expected.

All that's missing is a plastic Corona.

Two colorful recipients of my Chicago postcard drop paying it forward!

A buried treasure.

Atop the Empire State Building with the Sweet 16 birthday gal!

The King and his harem.

The King and the inspiration behind Burnin' Love.

A perilous yet beautiful threat.

Cuddling with two pet gargoyles.

Prison van or taxi? You be the judge.

Beer and maple syrup. No wonder I'm gettin' a Frencher.

Today's special? A tray full of Awesome.

Ridin' a bull...another Bucket List item scratched off the list!

Cats have this same annoyed smug look whether I'm paper or people.

On the plus side, no toilet paper needed!

Hangin' with another gargoyle. Only this one can't purr.

It takes a confident man to wear rhinestones and smile.

Delete the punctuation and you have yourself a 'Yes.'

Equipped with my very own life jacket and kayak paddle!

The number of people baffled by my existence continues to bridge generations.

I'm blooming in all the right places.

Moving day!
(In my defense, they gave me the heavy end).

Our triumphant arrival to the Air & Space Museum.

The Santa Monica Pier.
Along with two more rides I'll never go on.

The most fortunate birthmark a bull could ever wish for.

Even in death...a smile.

Her first paper massage client!

They were concerned by my loss of color but the doctor gave me a clean bill of health.

The best view you can have of a grasshopper's insides without being digested.

I could have gone where no paper man had gone before
but she was unable to fire the Space Shuttle's boosters.

I have no idea what made this footprint, but I do know I never want to meet it.

Frosted Heaven.

"Is that a lighthouse in your pants
or are you just happy to see me?"

More boozin'!

An amazing archeological find. Taken in honor of my post, 'Lucky to Be Alive.' (see sidebar Faves)

One of the few towns where the mayor is his own constituent.

This has inspired me to create a Beer Belly & Banjo version of Paper Greg.

Multi-talented, I also make a great bookmark.

Adopt me today!
(If you look closely, you can also see a cute kitty in the background)

Thumbs up from a Thai elephant pilot! THIS is awesome.

Thank you all again so much! Keep the amazingly creative photos coming and help me meet my goal of traveling to all 50 states and all 7 continents.

Wanna help make it happen? Spread the word! Better yet, join in!

You totally should track the places you’ve been like they do in movies when hunting a serial killer. Large map, pins, and various colored string. PADOW!



Naila Moon July 7, 2012 at 4:54 pm

Another round of awesome places.
I was wondering…this does happen on occasion…do you think you could just have a virtual slide show on your blog of all the photos thus far? You could include the ones you didn’t post.
I did start posting to Pinterest but man, I have only been through round one!
Just a thought.

I have some pictures for you from our trip to the Aran Islands last weekend…pre-me puking on the ferry on the way back. Must send those over!

Nancy B July 7, 2012 at 10:56 pm

Just want to say I so enjoy the places you’ve been, the people you’ve met, and the things you’ve seen……… how fun to live through you vicariously!

Amy July 8, 2012 at 12:01 pm

I am enjoying this more for the captions than anything. Greg, with talent like this, you will go far. (And I don’t just mean Paper Greg.)

valmg @ Mom Knows It All July 8, 2012 at 4:21 pm

Greg, you sure do get around! Great to see another batch of fun pics and captions!

Stephenie July 8, 2012 at 6:41 pm

Woohoo! I’m the person riding the bull with Greg!

Sheila July 10, 2012 at 2:03 pm

I swear, I think you are one of the funniest people I have ever had the pleasure to, uh, well we’ve never met physically but I feel like I know you anyway. I would love a slideshow also of ALL the photos because when I’m not done taking pictures yet. Just slowed down a bit. I’ll bet you’re having a blast though.

Cathy Meyer July 11, 2012 at 1:43 am

…these are making me SO MAD (that I haven’t taken my awesome picture yet with my cool idea for where I’m going to “put you”). The picture are great, people are VERY creative, but Greg, do you know what really makes them? Your captions. Nicely DONE! You had me and my husband giggling..again…THANKS!

Jen July 13, 2012 at 11:26 am

just fyi: paper you will be making the journey from rainy Cologne, Germany to sunny Belgrade, Serbia and then to Split, Croatia next week. Anything specific you want your picture next to?
