- PIG loves to play in the mud
- PIG is what bacon is made from.
- A lot of ADV bikes are refered to as PIG's....

Decision made. Now to buy one....
This is why I am not a creative artist, I am incapable of coming up with such great ideas!!! This is awesome, can some computer geek make us a pig smilie???

The waterproof book idea sounds great as well. I'd be keen to try that..

I think it might be the time to start talking logistics. I think we will need one person per continent (minimum) who would like to actually try organise the mascot through that continent.

Add your names againt the continent of your choice if you would like to try organsie the mascot through that area.

Australia - GazzaFish (me)
North America -
South America -
Europe -
Asia -
Africa -
Antarctica - anyone????

Once we have some names down we can chat a bit about how we make it happen.... I would imagine each person would define the 'start point and date' for that continent with whoever was looking after the previous continent and then also the 'end time and point' with whioever looks after the next continent. Where it goes in between is up to you...

Any thoughts????
GazzaFish, PM me and let me know some financials to get the pig and the Book Shog's recommended. I will pitch in with you to help with the financials. I think you should start with everything, PIG, book and anythign else that goes along with the mascot...

Also, what is the most cost effective post from Australia? Would Asia be the closest? Could we get riders there to join up?

I love the 5 min video, photos to make a video and collage from afterward. That would be kool!!

If we decide to go with a pig, here's a quick little 'logo' thing I came up with.

How about we get this made a "sticky" and you edit the front page to be the list of participants. You might even want to start a new thread to give it a proper launch how about "Around the world in 80 Oinks the ADV pass the pig challenge" I also think that you might benefit from posting a link in the regional forums too.

Maybe add a little pig on a bike setting off from Oz?

Keep it oval like Shogs suggests

Oh I can't really do the stickers. I just kinda came up with that as a concept, sorry :-/ I can definitely make the changes that are needed once I get home (at work right now) though and post them and maybe someone else can do the sticker stuff. I dont even know where to get started for all that jazz.

Do me a favor, post one w/ just the oval. No other changes on it, and I'll start the search today over in venders forum.
No problem. I'll do it tonight.

cool idea!

It'd be nice if the pig can make it to as many ADV gatherings as possible along the way - imagine photos of large groups of ADV knuckleheads posing around the pig, posted in the 'where's porky' sticky thread... give more of us a chance to 'participate' as it were.

Not really. Ideally it would be handed to an ADVrider who was heading overseas on a trip and therefore it would be taken by hand. In reality, this may be quite a bit harder to organsie and we may have to resort to mailing it from continent to continent is some cases...

Any ideas?

What do people think about this pig?

http://madallie.com/prod_one.cfm?id=...Hq2Ln2L3R6nYsA__

Their web site says to 'show me the world'....

It definately has a fair bit of character, just not sure how it would stand up to 12 months of bike riding....

I would imagine if we could get someone to carry on board, that would be kool. We have to keep in mind that once we set a timeline for the relay, we may have to ship in order to save on time.

How long should we keep it in each continent?

In a place like North America, we'd want to have it given a certain amount of time and passed on as often as possible, to include as many people. But it could obviously stay here forever, so that is something we'd like to avoid.
