I'll be leaving Vancouver and crossing Canada to the Quebec border. Leaving Vancouver late August...not sure if this timeline makes sense or not but there is room on my bike

Well, from Vancouver. Although, far enough east from anywhere would work.

Deadly99 its a shame your trip's not the opposite direction. You have a great ride scheduled to get to Vancouver

But it would get Bacon heading in the right direction. Then maybe someone could ride him around the east side of Canada before the snow fly's?

Bacon was handed over to me on Saturday 21st April 2012....sorry, out of focus but it was in a pub and we were getting free beer.


NOW.....calling all previous carriers. Can we locate Bacon's luggage? It would be a real shame to lose this stuff as it's the history and documentation of Bacon's travels around the world.
If someone can locate it, surely we can organise a relay of riders to get it delivered to me by June 28th when I fly out to Canada to continue his journey over there. Come on let's use the contacts on this forum and get it done.

When Bacon was with me (about a year ago) a lot of his souvenirs had been passed back (I think ?) to Gazzafish.

I donated a nice new backpack to keep new stuff in along with a copy of a local newspaper article about Bacon - if you PM me an address I can get another back pack over to you along with a copy of the article.

Thanks. I'm going to PM a few of the previous riders to try to find out who had the stuff last. I'll also PM Gazzafish.
