I ride the bear (bareback, Western style) when we go to Orange County. He cuts across the Mojave. It's much shorter than following I-15, and it saves gasoline (but does run up the bill for the penguins that he eats on the way).
If he delivered the shirt, he would want you to feed him lots of fresh penguins to re-energize him for his trip home. Trust me when I say that you will not want to run out of penguins before he is full.
