The Official "Bamboo the Yarisworld Traveler" Thread (v4, part 2)



For those who are new to YarisWorld, Bambo was our little stuffed panda friend who loved to travel. For two to three weeks, Bambo visited a different YW member and documented his travels by photo. Bambo had many harrowing adventures, including being lost in Thailand during the 2008 riots. Unfortunately, Bambo has become lost in Mexico. Luckily his twin, Bamboo, also loves to travel, and has decided to take it upon himself to continue Bambo's tradition.

The original creator of the Bambo concept was a YarisWorld member by the name of NemesisZ. NemesisZ became unreachable after the hack so *MAD DOG* volunteered to take over running the thread. Due to unforeseen circumstances, *MAD DOG* is unable to continue administering the thread. I've volunteered to take over, so let's get this going.

Part 1

Key
Bold members have had Bambo, and their posts are linked.
Red text shows Bambo's current activity.
Blue text shows Bamboo's current activity.
+(date) indicates a member's request to see Bamboo a second time around and the date in which they will lock in. For one month from request, first time requests will take precedence.
+L indicates a member's request to see Bamboo a second time around is locked. First timers can request to cut that member by PM request.
VP indicates a member who has voluntarily passed his or her turn. They will be placed immediately next in the list when they become available for a Bamboo visit.

Some Rules
-If you have been inactive for more than a month when your turn comes up, you will be skipped. If you return to find that you've been skipped, please PM me.
-The approximate amount of time for a visit is 2 weeks.
-You must give me your name, address and phone number before I approve that Bamboo gets sent to you. This is an extra precaution so we don't lose him again.

So THIS is the official bamboo thread now.

If the mods would leave the other one alone for now (do NOT unstick it!!!) that'd be great, thanks!

Well I found him a set of wheels so he doesn't have to ride in a brown sealed box anymore Now he can just drive to the next person on the list.









Although he might want to move the seat back a little





He was also around to help prep a set of wheels for paint



And this is the finished result

LOL, these are great!! He probably should have his own car!

J/K that'd be way too heavy for postage and stuff.

Aww... You should find out how much it is to ship Bamboo with the car. If it's not that bad, it'd so be worth it!

Sorry everyone. I have three of these (one original red, original orange and this black that I painted) and they are hard to find. I am trying to find the remotes so I can get a video of him driving one around. I promise that there are more pics, just haven't had time to upload them.

Sorry Tomato. Pics will be up either tomorrow or Monday. He is packed up and ready to be overnight aired to Darb to be in his wedding. I have been collecting pictures but I had a lot of Derby events to do this last week.
