5 months and hardly nothing. Sure glad you guys "saved?" him from Canada
Yeah I agree ! Bacon not done much and I've been crap with him with not getting out ! Time for him to move on and I'm thinking if bacon making a full circle of the globe ! I'm prepared to take him anywhere in Western Europe to the next rider who wants him !!!
Try to put some pics up of bacon of my phone but its not working (yet!!!!)

He was enjoying the ww2 memorabilia http://<a href="http://s1306.photobucket.com/albums/s562/jimpedley/Bacon%20Photos/?action=view¤t=BE9B628E-600E-4EC3-8CBF-650406602C34-5347-00000801997B566E_zps42648c95.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i1306.photobucket.com/albums/s562/jimpedley/Bacon%20Photos/BE9B628E-600E-4EC3-8CBF-650406602C34-5347-00000801997B566E_zps42648c95.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket Pictures, Images and Photos" /></a>
Jim, I'm in Western Europe heading for the Balkans and Eastern Europe in a month from now. Maybe Bacon is interested?
He is very interested and il even bring him to you !!! It would be a good idea if we could keep him going east till he makes a full circle around the world instead of one step forward and two steps back !
I sent you a PM!
There's no-one on the list who lives there whom I can pass him on to though...
That's one of the problems with moving him on !
I'm thinking of taking bacon down to London on the 13th June then to Paris on 15th so would be able to drop him of to you from the 14th if that's good with you ? ? ?
Stick BACON in a box and I can get him a 200mph ride
Bacons all set and ready to go !!
We are leaving for Dover Friday spending a couple of days in France then meeting up with lethphaos in Belgium Sunday/ Monday !
So, Bacon will be with me soon. Is there a map somewhere in this thread of where he's been too so far? I wouldn't mind modifying it to make it up to date...
UPDATE: Looking back on Bacon's past travels (and creating a map).
I'll give him a wash later today, so he's all freshened up for the next leg of his adventure. It'll probably be quiet in this thread for a while, as I'm not doing a live trip report, but I'll share pictures and stories when I get back.
The (very rough) trip draft:
If time permits, Bacon will be visiting the HU Travelers Meeting in Montenegro. If he's really lucky, he might be able to find someone there to keep traveling east with.
Have a great trip and take care!
When will you return?
Bacon on the ferry at Dover
We met a fellow inmate on the way to Reims France
Me and bacon camped up and cooking tea
Just Afew pics of bacons trip through France / Luxembourg on his way to meet up with lethphaos in Belgium !!! http://
Bacon wasn't happy with breakfast !
The croissants look better for bacon
The champagne grape vines south of Reims bacon does have expensive taste
I will return end of July, I hope y'all can have some patience until then. I'll be roughing it, so I'll have limited to no internet access.
I promise to provide plenty of pictures when I get back. Also, I'm looking into options to keep Bacon going when I get back, I would like to prevent him from stalling again, now that summer's finally getting in motion.
I have gone through the complete thread out of interest in Bacon's history, and I compiled a pretty complete map of his past whereabouts.
Screenshot with all places on one screen:
I will try to keep the Google maps link up to date even after my trip. There was a map before but that one wasn't kept up to date, so I started all over again.
He's been to many more places than I knew, he truly is well-traveled...
PS. Google might not load all places at once, do note there's some pagination going on at the bottom of the left column, you might have to click it to see the rest of the places.
