Hi Gals, Hi Guys,

this is how it comes up....

Everythings ready... tickets, ESTA, passport, driving license, creditcard(s), dollars..   :great:
even some suprises...

but hold on... the suitcases are not ready yet. Will have to work on it !!!   ::)

Just ten days to get on the plane heading LAX.  :-\

Ok, this is tooo early.   

But as you all know, I have to fullfill a private promise around LA.

I´ll be right there when Ralf is arriving at LAX on June 2nd.


To give it in advance:

THANK YOU !


to all the countless guys/gals in the background, doing everything to make Ralf and
me feel comfortable in all situations which might occure.

Mark, especially for you: It would not be possible to do this tour without you.
All the efforts you made, the plannings, phonecalls, mails, discussions.   >:(

Chapeau !!!! You are the man !  ;)

And for all the peope who donated a sum for this great event :

It is not important to donate a big sum, but it is important that everyone donates a sum.
So much one can affort. This will keep this great event running and...
...maybe one time it is your turn to make the ride of your lifetime !   :)


I am looking forward to see all of you on the way around or in Kirrville/TX !  :beerchug:
