[MOTSM] What Did Peter Parker’s Backpack Hold? A Closer Look.
Hanging on to the last words tweeted by @markofthespiderman last Saturday:
we are staying tuned.
Something might happen today, although I am not sure how they are planning to keep up with that level of intensity until July 3rd if they were to do events every week from Monday to Friday.
This weekend we had Juan’s Report from the Denver tagging night to compensate, today @dag_kurt, Atlanta Spidey Backpack Hunter and Tagger sent me the complete set of pictures of Peter Parker’s backpack, along with a brief report.
So yes, in other words, we know we don’t have much.
But who knows, these elements might come handy and/or a fresh pair of eyes might come up with a non-event news or an eventful one.
I left out the pictures with Parker’s attempts to sketch his costume, not to make the article heavier than it already is.
A big thank you to Kurt, and enjoy both text and pictures:
I wasn’t aware of viral campaign until a twitter post that included various MTSers. The traffic at 5:30 p.m. in Atlanta is not pretty, so I didn’t even begin to entertain the idea of going to the comic book store drop but noticed right after I decided not to go that there were 2 drops.
The 2nd drop (at criminal records) is much closer to me but @guestuser17 was en route, nor did he say which location. I sent a dm to inquire which at 5:53 p.m.
I had no answer by 6:00 p.m. so I just headed over, not hoping for much since it could take up to 20 minutes just to get to the area (only a few miles away) and then having to find parking (there basically is NONE). luck out with traffic and a parking space. I got there in about 5 minutes.
store employee #1 didn’t know what I was talking about (I asked for the lost property of Peter Parker)
store employee #2 knew what I was talking about and sent to me (as he pointed) to ‘that guy’ (I assumed he was drop coordinator but turned out to be store employee #3)
store employee #3 couldn’t tell me where or what it was (employee #2 had already let slip it was a backpack) but that it was in the store
He was eating near the comic book stand, so I figured it was close by. And I was right. About 4 feet away from the comics, on the floor, a backpack with ‘property of peter parker’ on display
I grab the bag, ask employee #3 does he need to take a photo. Says no, ‘the guy’ left a while ago.
Apparently he was there for about 90 minutes but no one ever showed up to claim it.
I go to walk out, employees ask to see what’s in the bag, so I open it on the front counter for them to see and chat a minute
I head back to my car and start tweeting that I’ve found it (6:16 p.m.)
