    You know that thing people do with a plastic gnome or a stuffed animal, sending it from person to person, each of whom takes a photo of the object posed in front of local scenery before sending the object off to someone else? How about if we do that with a Disney pin?

    I've got a Mater pin that seems eager to travel: Pin 63497: DLR - Mickey's Pin Odyssey 2008 - Surprise Pin - Mater. Mater is sliding along a map of Anaheim, and the text on the pin says, "Wherever ya go ... there y'are."

    Want to see how far we can make Mater travel? Then be the first person to post after me in this thread, saying you want to give Mater gas. After that, PM your address to me, and I will mail Mater to you.

    After you receive the pin, take a photo of it in a location near you, post the photo in this thread, and announce that Mater is ready to travel on. UPDATE: Margaret has made a thread for pictures and Go-Mater stories: see http://disneypinforum.com/showthread.php?1218

    Here's a cropped photo of the Mater pin at my house in Rodeo, California. (The complete photo is in a Go-Mater album on my profile page. I didn't want to plaster my face all over the first post.)

    If you want to play, ready, set . . . go Mater!

    Go-Mater is going nowhere. :cry: Poor guy isn't getting any gas.

    Maybe this thread would do better on the new game board?

    Mater will be in the mail by noon today, heading toward Annette's house in Montana.

    Margaret, you're next after Annette, so when Annette has posted her Go-Mater pic, you'll PM your address to Annette.

    It looks like Mater is going to jump the pond soon after that and travel the UK and Europe. Exciting!

    I am a huge scrapbooker... so I think I'll do a mini-album of Mater's travels. I'll just print up the pics that people post as he travels around the world, so if we could all post just a sentence or so about where he is and what's in the background, that'd be awesome. I'll post pics of the completed pages so you can see them, k?

    What a great opportunity for me to buy "Cars" scrapbook supplies! Heh, heh, heh.... (shhhhhh!!! don't tell my husband!)

    P.S. I'd love to put a pin on the cover, so if anyone has this pin to trade or sell, let me know and hopefully, we can work it out! Thanks!

    Yippee, coblj003 and Tabbitha, too! Earthbound is right: Mater is gonna be one majorly traveled pin.

    Annette, you are brilliant! A scrapbook is an extremely excellent idea. I wish I had another Mater pin to give you for the cover.

    Should I be making a list of the order in which people volunteered to host Mater, or can people just keep track by referring back to posts in this thread?

    I would love to have Mater when he gets back to the Americas or when he's next available. I'm in sometimes-sunny Orlando, Florida! Mater could try to meet a gator. :D

    Carolyn, I would recommend you edit your first post as people respond and as Mater gets to his next stop, that way people can check real quick as to where he is and where they are in line.

    Hey Guys, (Annette) in addition to the scrap book I think it would be really cool to have a travel log.
    Where he started, where he went, how far in miles and the time it took.

    There is a site that does this with money, its called where's George and they track the life of a dollar bill. (many of course) and they have a little stamp. We can call this wheres Mater? I think a travel log would be awesome.

    And of course, I WANT IN WHEN IT COME TO MY TURN. I also have done this with friends with a Teddy Bear but whoever had it tried to take a picture at a well known monument or landmark. I did mine with friends holding the bear in the forefront of the hollywood sign.

    Just a thought so we can tell where it was without any explaination.

    Cant wait to Gas Mater Up.
