Bacon's safe & sound...

Sorry for the lack of updates on Bacon's progress...I've been busy prepping for a ride.

I did get out for a short tide yesterday. Bacon got to check out the Mt Loop Hwy.

Naked Bacon:













Wednesday I'm headed south with Bacon along the Northwest Coast to Rio Nido, California.

Bacon's current kit:
  • Bacon
  • Helmet
  • Sun glasses
  • leather jacket w/ ADV patch
  • 2 "pawprint" elbow gaurds
  • A US flag lapel pin
  • Camo ballcap
  • Bad pig bandana
  • Maps of the UC, Canada & Alaska
  • A 4 pack of higlighters
  • 2 pens
  • Logbook
I'm gonna need bigger panniers.



According to the logbook, Baon has traveled 17,297 (miles/km ?) since he started. As best as I can figure from the logbook, some where around 12k, the logbook changes from km to miles.

Gotcha.
That's some fun riding up in there.
Nice to see it's not covered with snow and blow-downs.

You ever get up to Monte Cristo?

When is Bacon coming back to the East? My girlfriend and I are leaving in June/July for a trip up north and I'd love to take him along.

Circumnavigated the island of Rarotonga ,Cook Islands, all 32kms of it on a Nifty50. Does that qualify as an Adventure.
