The Official "Bambo the Yarisworld Traveler" Thread (V3)



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, [Panda] also loves to travel, and has decided to take it upon himself to continue Bambo's tradition. But, [Panda] doesn't have a name! What should we name [Panda]?

From November 2, to November 9, we take name suggestions.
The following week, November 10 to 17, we vote.

So far we have:

- Bambu

- Bernard (means "brave like a bear")

- Brando

- Bamboo (2 o's)

- Bambo with the '-' above the o

- Frank

- Vinny

- Columbus

- Oreo

- iBambo

- Bambino

-Panda

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.

Sweet. Cali yaris mentioned he was going to try to call Treyz today, I sent him (cali) a PM a moment ago, waiting for a report from him.

If Treyz or Kcalb Siray happen to see this beforehand, can they send me a status report?

I'm not MIA .. been really busy ... unfortunately I didn't have the time I wanted to spend with the little guy meaning taking him to the places I wanted to take him. That's because if you haven't heard, Lower NY/Long Island is the new Seattle. It's been raining for the past 2 weeks literally. All the outdoor places I wanted were pretty much rained out. Bambo IS on his way to VA via USPS. Whatever pics I have left I'll post up (still haven't dumped the camera lately). Just wish I had better weather :(.

Oh and KCALB SIRAY, I didn't catch your real name so it was sent to your address with KCALB SIRAY as the recipient lol. Also, I accidenlty packed him in an upside down box, so be sure to open the package from the bottom, NOT the top.

I may have a year til my turn, but the person before me is about 4 hours away. Will hopefully be making a drive to pick him up from another YW member. Might have him in time for our local road course opening. I always need a codriver.
