Now into Week 4, you all have submitted more than 300 photos! Eventually, I’ll get around to including ALL of them in a gallery for you, but until then, I’ll continue to select a bunch from each week’s entries.
I’m hoping it doesn’t slow down, especially now that we’re knee deep in the vacation season, so 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, Round 2′s photos here and Round 3′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.

Hammin' it up for the camera with the Great Wolf Lodge mascot.
Truth in advertising.
On the downside, fire hazard. On the upside, I'm the first thing you'll see in the morning.
Showing off her treasure (along with a trunk of some sort).
"T-Dad with your hat so bright, won't you guide my sleigh tonight?"
On the way to my first motorcycle gang fight.
Who needs an alpine ski lift when you're outfitted with a propeller?
Five great Americans.
Flat Stanley one-ups me once again. Would it kill you guys to turn me into a float?

You down with DSRV? Yeah, you know me!
Factoid: The DSRV is capable of rescuing people 2,000 feet under the sea!
This is exactly how I would have shown up, too.

Me and the photographer's hubby and daughter at the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band concert.
Factoid: While in high school, I copied the lyrics to 'Stand a Little Rain' and passed 'em off as my own poem just to impress a girl. It must have worked because we dated for over a year.

Sharing her treat would have been so much more
romantic had she not been gripping my face.
Cradled above New Hampshire's Lake Winnipesaukee.
Factoid: Winnipesaukee is Native American for 'unpronounceable lake'.
Operating heavy equipment in Australia.
Now I pose a threat on TWO continents.
Factoid: A moose's nose is so sensitive that a painful bite can cause paralysis. My body has a similar physiological reaction to manual labor.
I wish more restaurants would use me as a centerpiece.
Bouncy houses make me nauseous. Fortunately for her, Paper Greg pukes confetti.
Mountains, lakes, and waterfalls have nuthin' on this view.
Factoid: That's a hair clip, not a mini-Freddy Kreuger claw.
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.
