I still need to buy a pig. I've found near hundreds for sale but im struggling to make a choice. It is a very important decision . I'm not worried about the cash, just worried about getting the 'right' pig. stay tuned.....

Can anyone remember the Toyota advertisment where they showed a normal pig turning into a feral pig with the slogan "Want more grunt?"?? You used to be able to buy the feral pig stuffed toys from toyota dealers... That would be cool but I cant find any. The add was over twn years ago now...

I think maybe we should ask the residents of Jo Momma ?

I'm right on the border of Minnesota and Wisconsin, so I can cover part of both states if needed. I'll also offer to co-ordinate hand-offs, schedules, whatever for the upper midwest states.

Lemme see if any of the other ADVriders in the area want to play.

I will post the numbers as soon as I get them.
So just black/white? Hows this?

Great Laugh!

Sounds like fun, count me in. I could take Him/Her on a trip around Wales and over to Ireland.

This is sensational. I never thought the idea would get this much attention.

More pig shopping today......

OK, what about a PIG puppet?? Something like http://www.judaicaforkids.com/product_reviews.php?products_id=642

I can imagine the pig sticking its head in from the side of photo's, staring at girls as they walk past , drinking beer , dancing .... heheee

When you didnt want to use it as a puppet you could simply put a can of beer in him so he can stand on his own??

If people think this will work, I'll buy one. If people prefer a normal toy, speak up..

Cheers.

Didnt even notice that the website for the pig puppet is Jewish. Please be assured that I am interested in the puppet and do not condone or promote any religous beliefs...besides drinking beer which is a religion all to its own...

Why not name it "Journey"?

I like the Puppet idea too - easier to pose for the pics. I can imagine the possibilities, seeing pictures of Journey the Pig Puppet throwing back brewskis in 7 continents

If only we could find a 6-inch pig like this

We're close to nailing down the price for the stickers. I'm looking at 250 from a quanty.

There is two ways of going about this:

1. Take orders in advance, that way I don't get stuck with eating the cost of the stickers that DON't sale. The problem I have with this is if down the line this idea catches fire and more people want to be part of this cool idea, there won't be any more stickes

2. We all chip in to make the purchase of 250 stickers. I can keep track of who gives what. As the stickers sale, I can send the investment funds back to the contributers. If we do this, I'll be responsible for shipping the stickers. I'll look into flat rate shipping prices for the USA and some other parts of the world.
Shogs, the safest bet would be to take orders. Although it would depend on how much the 250 costs, I guess.... Have you done this in the past, do you have experience and a recommendation?

This one is on eBay. It says 12.5 inches, but it looks like most of that is "body" that would fold up/pack. I can see that draped over a mirror for photo ops. It even oinks... It just needs an ADV patch.

I think maybe for the religious reason alone, we should withhold from getting this pig. that is simply my opinion, keep church and state out of our affair!

Komito,

I sort of agree. Don't really want to go anywhere near any religious areas. Unless anyone comes up with a better pig than the puppet Krusty has shown above in the next 8 hours, I'll buy it tonight off ebay

I'm hooked on the puppet idea. if people do short clips of video, the ideas are endless....heheee

Now, anyone know of anyone who can make an embroidery ADVrider sew on badge?? I can get it sewn on, but I cant get a badge made..

As for stickers, I'll be in for 5 of them, just let me know how much and somehow I'll get you the cash....

Now to order the waterproof book.....

Just tried to order the waterproof book and pen from http://www.waterproof-paper.com/
and they only appear to ship to United States or Hong Kong. ARGHHH!!!

Does someone have a paypal account I can tranfer money into and get someone to ship it over to Australia for me??

PM me if you can. otherwise I'll keep looking for an alternative supplier who can ship to Aus.
