So I thought we needed some good old fashioned forum nonsense, and with GDC just around the corner, we need something to keep us from gnawing our arms off in impatience.
I got the idea from this post (so blame Ghost) :ph34r:

So I humbly submit, the Traveling Hula Girl™, guaranteed to put a smile on your face, a bounce in your step, one less photo on your digital camera, and remove $8 worth of postage out of your piggy bank.

So here's the deal:
1. Send (PM) the person who currently has the Hula Girl your addy (that would be me), they will pack her up nice and snug and send her to you.
2. Dust off that ridiculously expensive DSLR that's sitting in your closet, take her out and get an interesting photo or ten.
3. Post your best ones in here and then announce she's ready to go out again, people send you their address.
4. Rinse.Repeat.

As a bonus (and because the international people always get the shaft in stuff like this) I will be sending one overseas (shipping ouch!) to travel those lands as well.

I'll need help translating this post so anyone fluent in something other than English, send me a PM please!

Ideally they'll both wind up at PGI HQ at Go Live (or whenever).

RULES:

1. Please abide by the CoC with the pics please (Reaper is ready to smack your naughty pics downtown)
2. Don't take her unless you can keep her traveling, no month delays please
3. number your pictures and add a location (see below)
4a. email - hula.girl_roadmap@yahoo.com
subject matter: "Roadmap NA" for North America or "Roadmap EU" for Europe add the following info:
- Who do you get it from?
- What town, state, country do you live in? (closest major city works as well)
- If already known who's going to get it next? (no address only forum name)
4. Have Fun and Good Hula!

While I won't be able to participate personally (I don't have a camera, among other things), I look forward to following the Traveling Hula Girl™'s journeys around the world (well, at least some of the world :ph34r: ).

Sounds like fun!
(However, I, personally, am not too keen on giving my address to people I don't know, so I'm gonna refrain from participating.)

Go, Travelling Hula Girl™, GO!

Whenever she ends up in Canada let me know and send her over. I'll get a pic of her with the CN Tower in the background.

A trip to Alert might be possible given enough heads up and timed right.

On her way to USMCG Jarhead Ed, ETA is Thursday-ish.

Stalled on the international forum front, need to figure out a way to get that one going as well (she's starting to tell me I need to lose some weight and that I never take her anywhere nice, so it's time for her to go).

I'd be up for it, could even translate your OP into german, even though I think most in here speak english anyways...
Only hope there is someone to send her to over here in europe.

Mason, let me know when you got her via PM and we'll have her visit Montreal. I promise a pic of her right next to an original repaint (not shared on the forums) of the new fan art Urbie pic just for Garth (and Paul). I'll ship the Hula along with the original, autographed Urbie pic to the next volunteer for the Traveling Hula.

Hey Ironhawk, let me know when you are done andI'll PM my address here in NJ.

Just one question. Do you guys think she should run around down here in the States a little bit and then cross the border instead of back and forth? If this is the case I would like to request her after USMCG JarheadEd.

I think on top of just posting the location, someone should create a roadmap and keep it updated so we can track her movement...

Thanks to the kind efforts of Sesambrot we now have a Hula traveling to the balmy shores of Germany!

He has also graciously offered to post in the German forum a translation as well.

So now we may have a bit of competition for 'best pictures' ;)

Yes, I know my basement isn't going to win...

Hey Kaemon, any thoughts on keeping her in the States for the first leg of the trip before sending her north over the border to finish up?
