Aroma came to me from nearly halfway across the country (I live in Norway...she came from Vestfold and I live close to Trondheim) however I did not travel with her all the way.
A breeder offered me Aroma on an online forum, but I was worried I would not be able to get her, luckily another forum member was getting a rabbit from the same breeder, and she lived far closer so she took Aroma with her from her breeder's home and into my county. We met halfway there, traveling maybe 1-2 hours to get her.

Well I met Kayj on Sat & got lost on way back so wound up driving through the Peak District for 2&half hours,

My longest car trip was actually only to Leicester & back, for the Birmingham buns, but M1 was closed so I was driving for 8 hours.

My longest distance wise - for someone else was Birmingham & back

Just to a town between Nottingham and Derby i think, so not very far. It was about 3 or so hours in the car back then (dont drive now) That was for our Amile, who was at my mums. Since weve either rescued from Bristol (Charlie and Earl) or the town where we live

Rosie came from the SSPCA in Dundee! We fell for her after seeing her on Rabbit Rehome. So I suppose we had about a 2.5 hour trip to get her. She's a good traveller though ;)

You're lucky on the East coast, with 2 good rescues - there are no rabbit rescues in the west of Scotland at all :(

My buns were all real close to my home :) But I came to England to get my rats :lol: It was a 5 hour boat trip there and 5 hours back and about about 2 hours driving to collect them :)

We went over 6 hours to get ours and had to stay nearby overnight and bring them home the next day!
