A place you have never been. by Meta tron

June 17th, 2007 3:05 PM

INSTRUCTIONS: Go Here
Now copy the random word go to Google maps
Select find business and enter the random word in the left text field and your address in the right address field.

Go to the first business listed that you have never been to.

ADDENDUM: write the word permanently or semi-permanently outside the business.

My random word is thus.

I put thus into the business search and got the Hilton Trafalgar. Cool! Central London means I can go after work without a massive detour.

And now to make the semi permenant sign. Cardboard or paper won't hold up to our British weather, so I need something more sturdy. I couldn't find any plastic that wasn't still being useful as something else, so resorted to making the 'plaque' out of some modelling wire
wire thus

I thought I'd add to my tag the SF0 web address in case someone curious found my 'thus'.

Ok, so Sunday (today) after work I moseyed on over to Trafalgar square and found the hotel. It doesn't say Hilton on the outside so I had to go in and check it was the right place!

I found a small bronze downspout grill near the secondary entrance that was a perfect size for the tag I'd made. There was even space to put in the SF0.org tag as well.

The wire worked quite well as a tag as I could bend the prongs I'd made outward to act like a spring to grip to the grill.

TfL has a tendency to shut down transport links of a weekend. Best to check that I can get there from work without incident.

The building was actually quite pretty, I'm glad I went to go look at it.

right by the secondary door, which is still used quite frequently. People will definitly see the tag here.

The metal doesn't look to out of place against the metal grating, so hopefully won't get pulled off by any one tidy minded.
