    Im sure its already said but whats the plan with bacon when he is retiering from his touring?
    Donate him to a childrens hospital? Maybe witha book showing his travling.
    Sell him off to rise money for adv?

    Or sell him off to a company so they can donate him to a hospital.

    Or someone gona keep him on a shelf somwhere?

    true. I just saw the possebility for us adventurers to do somthing reat. There could be a new mascor the next years. But i do agree that its cool that he keeps on travling.

    I thought when i sent him on his way that if he lasted 12 months that would be awesome.

    Now, nearly 5 years!!!! Thats incredible.

    I'm picturing maybe a large adrvider get together for his 5th birthday? November this year… :deal :freaky

    Bacon is welcome here if he gets to Minnesota. My wife is a big fan of pigs, and would love to have Bacon on a tour with us!

    I don't think Bacon has been to the US or British Virgin Islands yet.
    If I have him in September, I'll bring him and rent a motorcycle there to continue his around the world venture.

    Has anyone made a list of all the countries/cities/islands he's been to yet?

    Not sure where you got this list from but it is LONG outdated. I took my name off the list over 2 years ago when bacon bypassed most of the US and was lost somewhere.
    Here is the list to copy. I am not on it.

    Somehow the list got updated, and my name never showed up on it.

    If you add or remove your name from this list, please quote the last list shown in this thread :deal
    so others names don't come off, or people who pulled there name off stays off.

    Calling Longways, Cyborg, Coho, et al!!

    Looking to pass Bacon off from Lower Mainland BC - ideally East, to see more of Canada - but to whomever can take him.

    I can take him out to wherever needed within the BC Lower Mainland, Bellingham WA, if really needed. At the moment, I am focused on some pretty intense family illness/financial issues now, so please show some initiative to make arrangements. I reached out to get him from the UK here, surely a local can reach out and help move him.

    Best regards all,
