ok ok First thing on the list: Find a better name for the swap. But anyway...

Would anyone be interested to base a swap around our favourite means of transportation? For example, I have memories of traveling in trains and buses as a child. Maybe you're a trainchaser? You love airplanes? You are very environmentaly friendly and love to ride your green bike?? Or better yet, do you have a passion for vintage racing cars? Or you like those Japanese speed trains? Oooh, I know, TRICYCLES!

Anyway, I could go on forever. Is anyone up for it?

PS: my first swap suggestion. :S

Aw.  Cute idea!  I love my beach-cruiser and ride it to work whenever I can. Smiley Some ideas could be crafting things to do ON the plane/train/bus, or accessories for your car, bike, etc.

Cool idea! My main means of transport is my boring car - she sure could use some "pimping up". Given a choice - I'd go by boat. Maybe one swap item could be for what we have to do and one for what we love to do?

 Cheesy omg, someone answered. lol

I guess the crafted items will depend whether the person owns the vehicle or just admires it. I personally don't have any sort of vehicle. I just think it would be cool to make stuff with trains, bicycles, airplanes, vintage cars, etc. on them. You are right, we could defenitely make accessories for the private vehicle or activities to do while traveling. It's a very loose kind of swap. And all depends on the given person.
