Though, good to know the speedīs...  ::)

The final stage:

Left from Andreīs place at 04.54 this morning, not only was i tired, it also rained!!! hmmm  :-\

(http://www.opdenkelder.com/muerto/arc/anm11.jpg)

Some windmillīs... Green Enerygi Baby!!!
(http://www.opdenkelder.com/muerto/arc/anm10.jpg)

So, on my way, and i donīt why, but the GPS is not leading me the same way home, 10+ road works (60-80 kmt)
also there was a limit to the speed in Germany  :evil: :evil: :evil:
(http://www.opdenkelder.com/muerto/arc/anm9.jpg)

Hamburg harbor... spedition.
(http://www.opdenkelder.com/muerto/arc/anm8.jpg)

(http://www.opdenkelder.com/muerto/arc/anm7.jpg)

(http://www.opdenkelder.com/muerto/arc/anm6.jpg)

(http://www.opdenkelder.com/muerto/arc/anm5.jpg)

(http://www.opdenkelder.com/muerto/arc/anm4.jpg)

And the Elbtunnel from the other side...
(http://www.opdenkelder.com/muerto/arc/anm3.jpg)

Finally in Denmark, no improvement in the weather...  :-[
(http://www.opdenkelder.com/muerto/arc/anm2.jpg)

And the final pic, when i noticed the km counter i had a bit of a laugh! - itīs like the Donkey Kong game, when that reach 999990 itīs rolling over, apparently the counter here does too...  ;D ;D ;D
(http://www.opdenkelder.com/muerto/arc/anm1.jpg)

So, the number short....:
The Countries: 7...! (Denmark-Germany-Holland-Belgiun-Holland-Germany-Denmark)
17 Hours on the road..
2052,4 KM driven....! (average speed 120km/t)
Now iīll go take a nap!

Wow, what a trip, must be a record  :o  Glad to see that you got home safe and sound. But why the picture of the church, did you say a prayer?

Hey, regarding this picture  :arrow:

(http://muerto.superfreehost.org/road/belg10.jpg)

...the game inside this cab' is one my favorite ones : SCRAMBLED EGG  :-*

(http://klov.com/images/11/1181242158139.png)

...funny, this game is EXACTLY the same than EGGS, but the sprites are just different :

(http://klov.com/images/11/118124210541.png)

I always wondered which was the original version?

But my fav' one is SCRAMBLED EGG because it's the one I played inside a bar/pub... long time ago  :P

congrats on breaking the 2k barrier on a singel roadtrip - what a hell of a ride! your next goal is to do the same thing non-stop  ;)

it's wonderful to see that berzerk at your place, hopefully andré will get our boards up and running! in the meantime: good luck in finding an original joystick for it, you could ask "andre's best friend steve", i'm sure he's going to send it to you FOR FREE all the way from australia to denmark  :twisted:

once again: nice meeting all of you guys  :-*

Well, i know itīs been a while since someone posted here, but my Berzerk finally reached 100%... 100% you think, well, mine was the only one without the famous Bat joystick..... :-\
Luckily i won an auction on ebay a while ago, so now itīs complete....

The package:
(http://www.opdenkelder.com/muerto/arc/bat1.jpg)

nothing to see equals great packing!!! :spaceace:
(http://www.opdenkelder.com/muerto/arc/bat2.jpg)

The Bat stick:
(http://www.opdenkelder.com/muerto/arc/bat3.jpg)

He unscrewed the joystick from the CP, so it wouldent break or something douing itīs trip here...
(http://www.opdenkelder.com/muerto/arc/bat4.jpg)

And this CP is in far better condition that the one thet was on the machine...
(http://www.opdenkelder.com/muerto/arc/bat5.jpg)

Old setup...
(http://www.opdenkelder.com/muerto/arc/bat6.jpg)

New setup, spot the difference?  ;D
(http://www.opdenkelder.com/muerto/arc/bat7.jpg)

Game on! - oh, and the stik works perfectly! the 45 degrees angles are easy to hit!

Title: Re: A skip and a hop to Holland/Belgium...
Post by: Muerto on June 03, 2010, 11:15:06 PM

congrats on that catch, michael! and i think the price is totally ok considering the condition the panel is in and the way the joystick functions.

now all we need to do is get my berzerk up and running ... ;) :-* :spaceace:
