Cyborg has offered to take Bacon on his ride in Europe but that won't happen until the end of May.

I have a trip to AK scheduled but it's not until the 20th of June.

I agree that we need to keep Bacon moving and have posted a thread in the PNW forum looking for volunteers.

Will you be in Alaska on the 20th of June?


If so, where?

I'm leaving Seattle on the 20th and expect to arrive in Eagle, AK on the 3rd of July.

It's unlikely Bacon will be making the trip, he's headed for California next week.

Ted Simon - Jupiter's Travels presentation

This evening Bacon had the pleasure of meeting fellow world traveler Ted Simon



Ted is really a great guy and found his travel pointers to be very helpful.

Later in the evening Bacon met another world traveler, Helge Peterson and his Globeriders compadre, Chris -



Bacon then met Johnny Drunkard and they discussed plans for Bacon to join Johnny in is trip down to California and the Rio Nido Rally

The Bacon hand-off will happen this Thursday at Engle's Pub, if you're local and wish to say good bye to Bacon this Thursday's MAG at Engle's is the place

Can you get Bacon to Dubai? I can organise a big Middle East trip here via ADV rider and the HUBB.

We might have to rename him for a while so as not to offend local sensibilities and religious values. Pwerhaps Ewe-n or something. PM me if interested.

I was there last night and didn't see Bacon at all. The presentation was good although I would have appreciated Ted taking a few questions.

Talking Ride Safe Bacon

The Bacon hand off was completed tonight at the North Sound Meet and Greet. Mr COB wanted a picture with Bacon on his HOG -



And just as we finished taking this picture TimF650GS showed up so we took his picture as well -



Later Johnny Drunkard showed up and the Bacon hand off was made -



Bacon, and his belongings were packed away for his trip to JD's house -



Bacon will be heading down to the Rio Nido Rally next week.

My improptu hosting of Bacon has been both challenging and enjoyable - I don't regret it for a second! Bacon really knows how to bring out the real you in the people around him - even those that don't actually ever meet him!

Go Pig Go!
