Ready for your photo challenge?!

PHOTO TASK #1 – Pose with the gang outside of your newly decorated caravan. Do a TRY IT with the Grape Stomp Prop. Make sure everyone has a barrel of grapes to stomp their frustrations out in. On the count of ‘3 everyone does the ‘JIG emote and the photographer captures the moment.

PHOTO TASK #2 – Sit down at the Cracked Game table next to your caravan. Start a round of Cracked. You can play the round if you have enough time or just let the timer run out so the little chick cracks open under pressure. Take a group photo with the cracked egg at the game table AND snap a picture of the avatar holding the little chickadee. Make sure to get his cute little face in the picture.

PHOTO TASK #3 – Make friends with the horses. The cool kids are encouraged to wear western outfits and cowboy hats. Find the best acrobat in your troupe and have them perform a ‘HANDSTAND on top of a horse. At the same time your star tumbler is upside down, the rest of your crew emotes the ‘GIDDYUP dance move. Pics or it didn’t happen!

PHOTO TASK #4 – Word on the street from the neighboring Aurora Gulch community is that there is a wild stampede of bison roaring through populated parts of the Aurora Highway. Travelers passing through camp yesterday said their donkey got spooked from the thundering sound of the bison stampede. The poor donkey ran off hee-haw’ing down the highway with three days worth of food and their last roll of toilet paper. Tell your regulators to mount up, because it’s time to let those ranching and rodeo skills shine! Capture a photo of your posse riding a stampede of bison through the middle of the caravan camp. There are several herds out roaming the Neighborhood.

Drop your own stampede of bison or have your crew ride the herds of bison that are already out on stampede in the Neighborhood.

PHOTO TASK #5 – The Aurora Highway Rest Stop bathrooms have been rated 5 stars by the Thereian Transportation Agency for the past decade. Aurora caravans and travelers can count on the rest area being clean and well stocked with the “good kind” of toilet paper. The Aurora Parks and Rec Department have been able to maintain bathroom supplies for the busy rest stop location despite mass hysteria toilet paper shortages reported on the Islands of Caldera, Kansas and Nada. This last photo challenge requires your crew to steal all of the toilet paper out of the rest stop bathrooms. Yes, you get a roll of TP and you get a roll of TP and YOU get a roll of TP! EVERYBODY GETS A ROLL OF TP! To commemorate your crew’s shenanigans, cram as many of your friends as you can into the two outhouses at the Aurora Highway Caravan Events Lot. Hold your roll of stolen  toilet paper (use the Try It option) and snap a picture of the crew throwing up a ‘HOLE emote sign. Made you look! ‘rofl

Posting Photo Tasks to Social Media
1. Edit and crop your photos so that the background of your desktop is not showing. Make sure to turn your compass off and remove anything else that may be on your screen.
2. Create a post on your own Facebook page and upload the photos. Make sure to tag the There.com Facebook page @ThereVirtualWorld in your post so that we can Like and Share it to our page.
3. Tag your friends who helped participate in the photo challenge if they have a Facebook account.
4. Post your Caravan Challenge to your Facebook page.
