    Nordkap... Wow! That's a trip! :eek1
    The plan so far is to quit my job in May, and head off between mid-June and the beginning of July for a year or two biking around Oz. I'd be happy to meet you somewhere to pick up the pig after your trip up north.

    Mmmm timing might not quite work - I will be heading home from Nordkap and travelling past Paris around 11 or 12 July so it might be too late to hand over our little Porker before you head down under.....

    Mmmmm - we need to get our little pig moving again !

    Mistermike - how are your plans going ? Still on for a May departure to Aus ? Can you get to Paris to pick up Bacon before you go ?

    If not, I am in France next week and could probably meet up with AmauryAML to collect Bacon before taking him up to Nordkap in June.

    Have to say I would prefer to see him heading away from Europe - he's spent a fair bit of time here and it's time to move on to pastures new !

    Flights booked for the 18th June, and time seems to be racing ahead. Not sure if I can make it up to Paris for a good couple of weeks. It's a ten hour round trip for me and I'm not sure if I can justify it.

    Anyone else in Northern France or Paris who could give Bacon a lift down south in the next few weeks ? He's actually really good fun as a travel companion !

    A mate will be in Paris in about a week. He ( and his wife ) are spending about 5 weeks travelling. I could send his cell phone number for a hook up to get Bacon back to Oz.

    :clap Warren flies out on sunday and will be in Paris late monday. I will see if he can meet up and is ok to send you his mobile number.

    I will get back to you shortly

    Bacon might have to do a trip on one of those spaceships down ( up ? ) the Rhine before heading home.

    I didn't manage to get hold of my mate before he flew out :cry. Looks like Bacon is still in Europe.

    Anyone else able to help out?
