2017 Over the Pond Pictures Culled From Facebook
« on: June 03, 2017, 02:54:45 am »
 Mark and I believe Dan as well (I've never met Dan, so I don't know what he looks like) have made it to Europe and are beginning their trek.  Here's a few pictures from the Facebook OtP page.

Having some beer-


Getting out on the road from Breda, Netherlands-


And at some point there's a special can of Hel waiting for them-

Thanks for posting the pictures Charlie!
I don't do facebook...
      Would you please continue to post photo's and info?
      Would you send some discussion to the boys for us?
          Tell them; we want more photo's and notes!!
                          we want them to post occasional notes about their ride!!

I suspect the first picture was staged!
(In Belgium, only wimp's drink beer in them little bitty glasses).
  Being COGgers, Mark and Dan ain't beer wimps...

NOTE: The bikes that Mark and Dan are on, belong to Marc and Daan..
           Marc and Daan are past "OtP" Eu. Travelers.

Ride safe, Ted

OK... so it looks like our GTR/GCE pals are having a little trouble with our boys... something about them going missing... but they were found  :-[
I'd say they're enjoying the trip!

Has anyone heard "directly" from the gruesome twosome??

I wonder who was ahead of them when they went missing?
The rule over there is; whomever loose's their follower,,, has to buy the beer.
When we were there with Al, "I" had to buy the beer..

Sadly; eventually Al was also found.. <evil grin>
More Sadly: Charlie and Gie joined the group the next day at Stelvio..   :truce:

That can is swelled on the top like some anaerobic pathogen has taken hold and is ready for Mark's consumption!!! :-\

From Wikipedia:

In 1981, a German landlord evicted a tenant without notice after the tenant spread surströmming brine in the apartment building's stairwell. When the landlord was taken to court, the court ruled that the termination was justified when the landlord's party demonstrated their case by opening a can inside the courtroom. The court concluded that it "had convinced itself that the disgusting smell of the fish brine far exceeded the degree that fellow-tenants in the building could be expected to tolerate

That can looks fresh.... :rotflmao:

The Red Wolf brand that Hans digs out, usually look like a softball compared to that can...
I think he carries them around in his tank bag a couple months prior, to "ripen up"... :great: :beerchug: :beerchug:

True story about how bad it smells.
In Holland, "Al" washed his hands in the Motel bathroom.
He threw the soiled paper towels in the bathroom trash can.
Later we learned; So many guests had complained about the smell in the bathroom, that it was temporarily closed and disinfected.

Ride safe, Ted

OK, I lied. It was Al, Charlie, and I.
  We washed our hands and threw away the towels.

  Not only did I put used paper towels in the trash after washing the juices off my hands, I threw in the dirty towel Gie handed to me in the parking lot when he saw me looking at my wet hands, trying to figure out how to do something about the mess.  As he handed it to me, he emphatically stated he didn't want it back under any circumstances.  The next time I went into the rest room the trash had been emptied, the floor was sticky with some kind of smell-good spray, and there was an empty can of some kind of commercial-use-only air freshener/odor killer spray in the new trash bag.  And not a small can. :D

Well that's becuzzin we haven't rolled into a place until about 10:30 (that's 2230 here) at night. I think our EU friends are testing us. Last night we stayed at farm house in the hills of Austria. This place was so off the grid when the lights went out around 0030 it was because the power ran out (solar) Haven't had wee fee as it is pronounced here nor than 6 hrs sleep a night. Around 1.7k km's so far. Having a blast. Ralf took  us over 10 passes yesterday. Snowing at the top of stelvio. I'll post another low brow humor pic on the question thread. Maybe that one will get it locked ;) Tons of pics. Working on it. PS Ted I gave Ralf that kiss you asked me to give him. No tongue though. Friendship only goes so far. In Austria today for a semi down day. Did the tourist stuff on the train and a mini pub crawl. Rained like Noah. Sitting outside the hotel now with a cig and some Jack sipping and typing. Ya'll have a blast at the Nat as I know you will. Check in soon.

Human endurance testing continues...
10 passes yesterday, including something called Stelivio or something. Were in a hurry to get our daily 13 hours ride time in so we did the big one in the rain and falling snow.
Good stuff!
