    It's funny, I did something very similar. I used one of my Skystriker's parachutes as a template, for the size and where to tape the strings, and cut out some parachutes out of the clear plastic bags that we put fruit into at the food store
    So much to do, so many things to distract me.

    This was a great holiday. My dad gave me and my brother $250 each just to spend on toys. I remember walking into Toys r us and seeing all these joes that hadnt yet been released in the UK as well as all the Jurassic park merchandise. Jurassic park hadnt been released in Movie theatres in the UK at that point so it was a real sensory overload seeing all these amazing new toys. I bought Cobra commander (black) Duke (desert camo) Cross country V2 (My 86 Version had been killed by the Lawn Mower years before so getting a new one for my Havoc was awesome) Keel Haul V2 (At this point i never new the F.L.A.G was in exsistance so this was basically an awesome new Joe) Leatherneck V2 (Never had Leatherneck and loved his charachter so loved getting this), Wild Bill V3 (My V1 was killed in the same lawn mower incident as Cross country) Zartan Ninja force (I nearly cried when i finally got a Zartan finally my joe world uptill that point always seemed incomplete without Zartan) And most importantly Firefly V2 (I was amazed to finally get a Firefly finally my 84 Scrap iron had a partner in crime!
    I also picked up the Ghoststriker, Another Joe Plane that fired water, Snowstorm, EELs V2, Colonel Courage, Ice cream soldier (Dont ask), Loads of Jurassic park figures and Dinosaurs, Some Corps figures and a Ninja Turtles figure that turned from a turtle to a ninja, I also got a Desert coloured GIJOE Scale troop transporter would love to see a pic of one if anyone knows what i mean.
    A strange thing about this holiday was i took my UK Exclusive Tiger Force joes with me, the reason was i wanted to take some Joes with me to Florida but was worried about losing them so i decided to take my least favourite Joes which were my Tiger Force Blizzard, Outback, Tunnel Rat & Sneak Peak. At this time i had absolutley no Idea these were rare. Here in the UK you saw them everywhere. Anyway i went into this Comic book store holding my TF Blizzard and TF Outback. In this store Hanging up in Baggies were Breaker and Chuckles two figures i would have loved both were about $8-10 dollars. Anyway im looking at these two Joes and the Young Guy behind the counter goes "Hey, ill swap my chuckles and Breaker for your Two figures" I looked and thought why would he want these pieces of crap so i started laughing and he must have thought why would anyone swap two rare tiger force figures for a pair of peg warmers like breaker and chuckles, so he started to laugh. Anyway i walked out the store and only realised ten years later that i probably had two of the rarest Joe items you could get at that time especially as this was pre internet and he was serious about swapping them.
    So anyway heres a pic of me on Daytone Beach pictures abit blurry, But this is a Fort on the Beach, You can see Leatherneck, Scoop, TF Blizzard, Cross country and a JP Velociraptor Also a Pirates Cove Flag
    Cool stuff, reminds me of carrying my joes to Tennessee in the summer when we went to visit family. It was literally on the side of a mountain, letting my vehicles roll down a piece of it.
