    Well, I am up to it and maybe a little past it now. 250 stickers on order :eek1

    No orders yet please, I need to set up a paypal for this... it will also be up to 10 days to print, and then they have to be shipped from Texas. so it will be the week before christmas, or it could be christmas week before I have the stickers. Lets hope they over estimate the time it takes and I have them next weekend! :eyes

    A proof is your last shot at final approval. It's the double check that there are no misspellings, wrong dates, color choice etc. It's their way of absolving themselves from guilt if you fuck up. :lol3

    Was just gonna throw a burger on the grill tonight, but now I've got a sudden urge for pork chops :D .
    Great idea and design. Was following this at the very beginning, then lost touch. Nice to see the staying power of ADV. Count me in please. Leaving for a quickie Puerto Escondido rt late Jan. Maybe Bacon needs to sizzle for a bit?

    :wave I have set up a paypal account specifically for the Pass the Pig World Relay stickers.

    Pass The Bacon!

    This is the email. 100MPG@100MPG.US

    Being that the Oval ADV stickers are $5. that is what Pass The bacon sticker will be. Shipping IS included (CONUS) and , $2 per sticker will go to Baldy for running this site.
    Keep in mind, $2 per sticker that ACTUALLY SELL. I expect to have a few left over, like about 150 few, so lest anyone think this is a profitable venture for me, I have one word. HA!

    Anyway, you can order now <s>or wait till I post that the stickers are actually in.</s> The stickers are in and being shipped ASAP! Same day, no waiting!

    TO ORDER!
    This is the only way to order, as it will simplify things for me and even I would have a hard time messing this up.

    SEND a PM with the subject BACON STICKER to me on this site, with your..
    1. ADV forum name
    2. REAL name
    3. ADDRESS with zip code!
    4. Number of stickers you are buying

    <S>They might not be in for 2 weeks, maybe sooner, maybe later, but be patient. When I get them, you will get them.</S>

    Other countries...Get together with fellow inmates and order them as a group, I believe if enough are ordered to one location, I can ship them to you without any further cost. Then they can be distributed locally. Since I have not sent out a single sticker, this is just a guess, but how much can a small package cost to ship overseas? :eyes

    I co-escorted Bacon into Sydney, Australia on Sunday afternoon.

    My Pig Latin is a little rusty, but I'm sure I heard him say he wanted to get out of the top box and spend some time with some of the bronzed Aussie girls at Bondi Beach

    You probably already have the UK covered, but I'm in if needed. I think I trip to the Isle of Man should be included. (sorry if someone has already dibs this). Someone could take it there, then someone could do a lap of the course and then someone could take if off to Ireland.

    Such a good Idea this :clap

    You are in if you want to be! There are no rules, and Bacon loves to ride, so if you happen to go down the same path twice, it is just twice the fun.
    I mean, come on! Have you EVER seen a happier pig then Bacon?
