Workin' on it!
Thank you for all the kind notes, comments and wonderful suggestions for places to stop on our Trading Tortoise tour, and your amazing, generous pledges. It is so encouraging to see so much support for our project and we are itching to start building the Tortoise and secure some more venues for our tour.
We are very grateful for all your suggestions and have been researching how we can add them to our route. Please keep them coming! There is a greater chance of us being able to add your city/town if there is a specific venue(s) you have in mind that you think would be interested in having our event or someone who could possibly host our stay.
We are happy to announce that we have added 4 stops (and are working away on including more): Minneapolis, MN (venue TBA), Sioux Falls, SD (Ipso Gallery), West Los Angeles (Giant Robot 2), and East Los Angeles (ReForm School)
Next week we'll start buying the base materials for building the Tortoise! We'll keep you updated on our progress here on Kickstarter and also on our blog.
