    Justal, if you can take over Bacon's travels on Feb 3, any idea which way you'd take him and roughly for how long? :D

    I'm off for 3 weeks so I might hit Uluru or Bris-vegas! Actually, considering the heat....I'll do the east coast.

    Just found this thread as i am new here... however...
    depending on the timing... i more than likely can take part in an Arizona leg of the journey... maybe from N. AZ to the mexico border...
    whomever it is that in charge of N America should PM me and we can discuss and see if it can be worked out

    Great Choppa!! :clap

    I'm sure Bacon would love the flight. OK, now we have the mascot, I need to focus a little bit more on the 'how'. Is there anyone in Australia who is going for a bike trip 'out of the country' around Feburary/March 2008?? Want some extra carry on luggage?:evil We can maybe get Justal to get Bacon to you...

    OK, Justal, If we can somehow get Bacon to Perth mid to late Feb, another ADVrider is travelling to Canada and would be happy to take Bacon. Thats one option.... I'm sure some Canadian's would take care of Bacon from there??:clap

    This will be fun!
    I'd love to carry the pig. I'm in eastern Pennsylvania and will pick up the pig and drop the pig off wherever I fit in the journey in the northeast! :deal

    Nice Thread!
    I am doing a tour of mainland Europe for 4 weeks in April 2008. the plan is to visit in this order (roughly!!);
    Start from Ireland,
    England,
    France,
    Spain,
    Portugal,
    Italy,
    Switzerland,
    Austria,
    Netherlands,
    Germany,
    Denmark,
    Norway, Nordkapp (Artic Circle)
    Sweden,
    Finland, and return home via
    Sweden,
    Scotland,
    Ireland

    I can offer my services and either carry Bacon all the trip or meet other European Riders to pass/collect.

    Red,
