Looks good, tunafish. Where where will it be travelling next?

And we HAVE to give it a name! Could you add a poll to this thread or would you want to start another?

There's the input from Canada I was hoping for.

Would it get to you if we sent it to Mr. o0moonman0o in Toronto? ;)

We should start a new thread for this containing:

1.) Rules
2.) The list (and who's next, etc)
3.) Everybody's pictures!

I'd take him to the Alamo... :D

those people were outnumbered 10 to 1 and yet the came back to form the largest rental car company in america....... i could take a picture of arkansas with him the hillbilly hell middle of no where



i have a better idea get donations sent to you to buy several shipping labels you send it to someone with a shipping label in the package and then they take the pic and send it back....


just get people tp paypal you donations... lol

tunafish, can we keep the next person updated on the first post? I sent a PM to the wrong person.

And, are you going to start a new thread just for the pics? I keep suggesting things for you to do. I appreciate it.

thanks

great idea....can't wait 'til I get the little buddy!

We need more people. I think this could really be fun. How about some more Asian and Australian input? We could use some more in Europe before it comes to North America. And where is Africa? I'd love to see him in the jungle.

As soon as we get a few more people im sure we can work on a who has it next list (i dont mind where it goes first). Also i dont mind if people want to join in the middle of things etc, anyone can join whenever.
But yer im still hoping we can get some more people in Europe etc then i can start sorting postage etc. Maybe a few more people as well. Come on neowin mods you know you want to do a small news coverage on this.

And yes i also will have a new thread for photos, also i have created a website for the Bear. Thats still a work in progress. But it will host a copy of the pictures and maybe a little Bear Blog.
Just where the user writes a few things about the bears trip sends them to me and i post them into the blog. So for example Neowin can have a few good images, then the gallery at the site can also host the same ones as neowin but have a few that where considered to not be as good. So we kind of build up a massive holiday photo album of the bear.
The site is http://beartravels.net/ however i am at a loss of how to exactly design it and what not.)May need some help with this one)

If you see that someone else has opted to do the place you live in, or the location you want to shoot do not fear!! Sign up anyway and take more pictures :) As the more the better and each photographer has their own style!!
Feel free to photograph the bear anywhere! Be it on a boat, taxi, car, train, plane, bike, in a castle, busy place, historcal place. I don't mind it's totally upto you!

Put me on the list for Oregon. That bear is going to be the prime subject with Crater Lake in the background if I can get to the rim safely. If I have to, I'll throw gas money to my dad to take the truck up there since it has 4 wheel drive. I'm not taking a Mustang up that road. Screw that, haha.
