WHAT!??!You say you have NEVER rode the big bamboo!??!WOW!!!You are missing out on some serious F-U-N!What you do is shimmy up to the top of a roof(in our case an 80 yr old chicken house on the back side of the farm),grab two green bamboo shoots(diameter is very important),step back as far as you can on the roof,race forward and jump as high as you will go!Allow the bamboo to tuck in at the armpits and as you begin to fall toward to the ground straddle approximately 2 more young,green bamboo between your legs and you will land gently onto the ground.I'm in mid vault in this photo.The chicken house roof is in the bottom right corner.I'm not sure how us teens/adults came up w/ this exhilerating thrill ride but I know that being poor can make a person creative.I do believe that my brother,Brian,A.K.A "Bacherlor number 2" on the "Slim Pickin's" LO and some of his friends came up with this stunt.It is awesome fun!The instructions are on the back of this LO.WARNING:This stunt is performed by certifible crazy people and should never be attempted alone!!!
I tapered green paper and drew lines on them,did the edge tinting/antiquing,took a bright yellow colored pencil to highlight.I cut leaves and glued everything together.
