GF,

Just go to a Surveyor/ Engineer Supply shop. I think they'll have water resistant field books that would do the trick.

Just contacted 'Strength International' in Adelaide who were great in supporting this event and they had exactly the waterproof book I was after. Very nice people to deal with.

Now to buy the pig......

I think the pig's name should be PUI

[which, of course, stands for Pig Underway Internationally]...

Names

When I were a little boy, There were a Rhyme or song or something that used to go;
This little Piggy went to market
This little Piggy stayed at home
This little Piggy had roast beef
This little Piggy had none
And this little Piggy went wee wee wee all the way home;

Well this little Piggy went around the world on an Adventure instead of staying home.

Now I think he/she should just be called "lil Piggy" cos where ever it went
i.e. This lil Piggy went to Asia, Europe, Canada, North America, South America and all the stops in between etc..
This little Piggy went to.. Red Square, or The Eiffel Tower, or The Empire State Building.

Just thought it might help as sometimes names dont translate well

Ps I'd prefer a sew on embroidered patch not a iron on transfer one (just to let you know)

Logistics:

Should we consider keeping the riding in the Southern Hemisphere during the early part of 2008. Then bring it to the Northern Hemisphere in the several months afterward: April - October? This would give the best available weather patterns for riding. Ideally summer would be best in the Northern Hemisphere, but we have to respect the Southern riders equally...

Thoughts on the "way of the pig"?

I think you're onto something, Komito. I would think we can figure out a route around the Southern hemisphere in the summer months and then a transition to the Northern hemisphere for those summer months. Maybe something like OZ - South America, Africa, sub-continent, Japan, North America, Europe, Russia, East Asia, back to OZ? I'd think that 4-6 months should be more than enough time to go 'round each hemi if we wanted or needed that long.

Obviously any route will depend on who we've got where, but this is a start.

PS Have we considered the idea of identifying one person for each region/country to act as a central point of information?

I suggest we start listing in the first post riders for each section or start a new thread for it and keep it in one convenient post.
