The Guinea Pigs-A-Go-Go Rescue Railroad Trip Jackie, Becky, Sophie, and Oreo (faithful companion) set off across the country on Monday, August 5th. The album starts the Sunday evening, prior to the trip, with final preparations. They returned safe and sound Friday at 5:30pm on August 16th. An 11-day, 5700-mile trip! One pig was brought back from the mid-west to go to Vancouver, Canada. One pig got mixed up and didn't make his destination and so will be finding a great new home in the Bay Area after touring the States!

1 The NIGHT BEFORE Sunday, Aug 4th Darkness is approaching, we are all very busy. Finally took a minute to grab a camera and get some candids.
2 Seems peaceful Looking down the back lot. The Animal Control vehicles are all in, the piggie barn at the end seems quiet.
3 A look out the RV door Just some local scenery. The bay breeze is what keeps us cool at PHS -- MOST of the time.
4 A look in . . . Becky is busy making arrangements in the RV. It's parked against the fence with difficult door access--in part to keep folks from poking in.
5 Make preparations Becky and Leah, busy prepping the RV for the tomorrows bon voyage!

9 Bob and Jim They took control of getting the cages travel ready!
10 The inside scenery! Pigs get settled in. The pigs were loaded and spent the night in the RV so we didn't have to deal with that in the morning. A number of squabbles had to be sorted out.
11 A pigger peaks out! Hey! Let me outa here!
12 The cages These cages were all custom outfitted with Coroplast. The entire Coroplast production line were some photos worth taking that we didn't have the time to get!
13 More special cages This is how the piggies traveled.
