I actually have a much simpler solution for this.

You just have to leave the gnome right next to the garage door, and make your way to the other side. When you open the door for Alyx and the Vort, try to place the chair (found besides the switch for the door) in an angle towards the gate. When you open it, the chair should fall under the door and prevent it from closing completely, leaving a little opening for you to crouch and gravity gun your little buddy back into your loving hands.

I know it works, cause I remember panicking the first time because I didn't expect to not be able to go back and get my little Bob. I didn't even have any backups back on the other side! So I tried stuff until I got him back. And frankly, sprinting to the door is waaaay too much work. Tried a hundred times without getting my Bob back!

I've done this trick 2 times in fact... Because I forgot to close the F***ing door at the end!! I though it'd unlock when I finished the game! Imagine my (very very unpleasant) surprise. Had to start all over. :'(

Hope that helps!

Yeah I did it without carrying it around thanks to completing the game before doing the rocket man achievement.

I finally finsihed this achievement after restarting the game 4 times after losing the little bastard every time... I named him Lil' Bastard. Also, He looks like the Travelocity gnome. Coincidence?

OH yea! I finally got it done! I actually didn't have that much trouble though. Got it done in two days and it was fun to relive fond memories too! Also I thought I would have to wait til the rocket launched to get the achievement.

This guide helped alot! Thanks!

And my gnome's name was Gnomey! lol

It doesn't work in half-life, this kind of thing works in portal but not half-life. I've tried everything and the door either crushes it or shoots it back out.

Sorry I didn't post this sooner, but thanks so much for this! It was very helpful, and I was able to breeze through the game and safely deliver the little bas... gnome to the rocket.

YES!!

The little bugger is airborne. Well, not quite, he's just locked in there. All through the game I called him Steve. Not sure why, it's just my generic catch all name.

The guide was a massive help. Thanks a lot.

Just unlocked this achievement, a very tedious one it is. Thanks for this guide.

Now I just need 650 more kills on TF2 and Aperture Science for the 1k.

Hey Steve, nice guide. Really helped me at the car part.

One thing that I can add is for the part you've labelled "Part Two," if you leave bob right by the gate that you open (the one with the timer that slams shut) and if you are quick you can suck him through before it closes while the vortigaunt and alyx walk through. That saves you having to launch him over the broken bridge and stuff. However, if you are too slow or you set the gnome too far from the gate you cannot get him again so be careful!

I forgot to close the door!!!!!
OMFG!
And because I continue to play I had to go back to the chopper persuit!! And It was harder than the first time, what a p in the a!!!

When you have to go to the car and leave Alix on the sniper I threw the gnome over the door, so the gnome get to the big door when you and Alix say goodbye to the Vortigaunt, it was hard to find, but it was in the corner waiting for me!

Awesome guide!! Thank you very much! I hate gnomes i always kill 'em in World or Warcraft!

--EDIT-->! Alright ENOUGH!...
...I thought I could do this without your guide and taking the gnome to white forest would be easy but I hate it! I get Paranoia from it!
I take him in a elevator BUT THE evil basted just falls Or a stupid anthilon kicks it away like a football. And he gets stuck everywere i go! I hate him!!!

example: I put the basterd on the ground and use the Ggun to pick up a piece of wood. The fence it was holding fall's on the ground RIGHT on top of the Gnome!
Omg I wonder if the Gnome does it al on Purpose! I hate it I hate it I hate it! Every time I close my eyes I see the freaking smile on his horrible face! everythime i go to bed i look under it to see if there is not a gnome lieing around there! I really freaking hate the little basterd. I can't wait to blow him to kingdom come!!!
