Greatshots,  looks like everyone was getting ready to deal with an autopsy when the Kallax was opened!!! :o :truce:

There is a fermented squid liver the Japanese like that is probably not as bad as that.

+1 on the nose plugs, hair net, bib and gloves.

Great times it looks like, no comment on Judy! :))

Must be really good eats if you have to dress up in protective plastic coverings so you don't get any on you.

I see Judith is making the rounds just like at the Bun Cooler. She's so giving.

And Europe is just so... so... fancy

this "stinky fish" is NOT an typically european food, it is only in sweden, norway, and iceland, maybe from eskimos, or Innuit.
 :c002: :c002:
Our food is much different to this horrible smelling thing.

Ted, the travellers are on their way to US. maybe they have an overnight stop in Manchester.
So they will arrive in US tomorrow.

you can them flog because their travel reports.
I'm still on writing my own report.
I will build a .pdf file in both langauges (german & englieh), many pictures, and also the routes.

I'm luckily bach at home, the Bike runs great, only minor problems during the travel, we can fix then beside the road.
only one mishap on my bike we need a Garage, and some tools like a drilling machine, and a metal saw, some bolts, nuts and washers, and an 20inches strip of steel.

no, the bike tipped over without me - i was 50 meters away from my bike...

The reason was: on our way from Salzburg to Emersacker, (close to Augsburg) Mark lost his wallet maybe 3 Kilometers before our meeting Point with Thomas, our Host for this Night.
Mark, and me rode back a few kilometers for search his wallet.
 I saw a black thing beside the Road, and stopped, put my bike on the sidestand, and walked back to that thing what i have seen...it was'nt Marks wallet, it was a Bodywarmer...

But if i look to my motorcycle, i saw that she was tipped over, and lay on the right side on the ground...

Mark was gone, he did'nt see it...
pull up the bike, and check for damage: right footpeg, and right Saddlebag Bracket "Antler" was broken...

fixed the saddlebag temporary with tension belts.

meanwhile, Mark has found his wallet, and we rode to Thomas' Home.

Dan & Mark fixed the broken Footpeg with a spare part from passenger's footpeg, Thomas and me fixed the broken saddlebag bracked antler with a stripe of steel, and 4 bolts & nuts, and fixed it with an extra bolt on the bikes rear frame.

 After this we get a nice BBQ in a awesome wilderness garden,

Glad you were able to do the fix.

Any video's this year??

Arrived home last night at around 10 p.m. local.

Not sure about Mark, last I saw him he was being escorted to a special inspection room by US Customs after attracting undue attention from one of their beagles (not an exaggeration).

We chatted on the phone during the luggage strip search and he said he didn't yet need me to call his attorney, so I agreed to move ahead to the Southwest gate where they were better equipped for the pending wait (i.e. they had a bar and beer). Last we spoke, he had cleared customs and was heading to the new terminal, but apparently the walk was longer than my boarding delay (we were on separate flights) or Mark found a new group of Asian tourists to photo bomb (a specialty he perfected while in Europe) and I haven't seen him since.

I plan to this week start downloading and organizing photos and videos from 3 cameras and posting a few without giving away all the real details I plan for The Concourier story. But first I've got to unpack and wash the riding gear that I wore for almost 18 days straight. May need to find a laundromat to avoid toxic mess in the house.   :))

Here's a pic of Mark at one of our photo stops in Austria. Ralf and Heinz lead us to a rise where we had a panoramic view of the countryside and huge lake where the the Alps rise out of the lowlands. While three of us walked around and took photos, Mark laid in the grass and promptly took a nap.

We weren't sure if we'd be able to wake him, but promises or a nearby lunch stop and bier eventually did the trick. :beerchug:

That's great, but ya need to put some pizazz in your rumors....


For instance;
I heard that on day 1,, Mark couldn't hack it, and had to rest after "only" 2 hours of riding,, while everyone else was sightseeing....   :rotflmao:

Don't soften the rumors. Hit him while he's not here to defend himself.. <evil grin>

I was suffering from a caffeine and sugar crash after a coffee and strudel at the last stop. And man that meadow view was an awesome place for a nappy. After getting the sniff bust from underdog, keeper of the safety of all America at LAX, for an open bag of beef jerky, I had to go to secondary inspection and be treated like a Columbian drug smuggler. My satisfaction was they had to sort through clothes I'd been wearing for 2 weeks straight  :). Why is it the Euro's have security knocked. Truly the most pleasant of experiences. They have someone there to answer any questions, systems are quick and efficient. People are helpful and nice with great attitudes. Get to your homeland and the crap begins. Jeez.
