Team 261, Item 115: A pink feather boa hanging out the window of the engine car of a moving, full-sized steam-powered locomotive.

I drove with my flatmate an hour and a half out to the Mount Rainier Scenic Railroad to do this. It was a gorgeous drive and we geeked out over a tavern called The Roadhouse along the way. This was probably my favorite item to accomplish thanks to it encouraging us to go out and explore a place we’d likely never otherwise go to. Despite inclement weather, all of the volunteers running the train and station were incredibly kind and enthused to help us accomplish this.

Team 261, Item 135: A sculpture of the actor Jensen Ackles made only from raisins and glue.

(Raisin Ackles also served as our impromptu Chrimbo tree this year, overseeing all gifts with his pouty shrivelled-yet-lovely lips.)
