Friday, the 28th of August 2009. Tomorrow will be a very special day... I'll do a new road trip for a very special game.

Ok, let's check my camera, I would like to prepare some pre-road trip pictures with my latest t-shirt   Roll Eyes Tongue

...but ... what happens with my camera  Shocked Huh?  arrow



Jesus! My beloved CANON IXUS v3  shock the one I'm using since maybe 8 years for everything (road trip, restoration, holidays, ...EVERYTHING!)



is ... dead???  Shocked Cry



Arghh! It's now too late for buying a new one  Evil Impossible to do a road trip without taking any picture! And especially for this one! ...OK... I'll have to use my mobile phone, a Siemens sgh-f480 that includes a 5M pixels camera. It's better than nothing  Undecided

Saturday, the 29th of August 2009.... This is it! The D day  Tongue

Very early in the morning... a last check before departure : Dr Pepper? Check! Namco music CD? Check! Pac Man hooded pullover? Check! Food? .... Food? ... no food? OK we will have to buy something for the breakfast on the road!



For my road trip stats'  arrow



Once more... we're going to U.K. ...for the fourteenth time!  Cool  Tongue  arrow



6:09AM ... Ignition!  Cool

After approx. one hour of driving, first stop for buying our breakfast... in this AC Restaurant  arrow



Usual stuff  Cheesy  arrow



...approx two hours later... arriving at the French border...



Since my first UK road trip... now, for this UK #14... I can tell you I know perfectly the road  Grin Cool ...



Do not be afraid regarding the channel tunnel ... just pick up your date via the website, select an hour, pay with your credit card, and try to be here on time. Don't worry, if you're here (at Calais) too early... or too late, you can use an other shuttle... without paying extra if you are less than two hours before or after the hour you got during your reservation. From my experience on this, I NEVER have to pay an extra... and sometime I was very l8te regarding my reservation time  Wink

Here, we put the credit card I've used for the reservation...Greetings Professor Falken, Shall We Play a Game?  Grin  arrow



OK... entering le Shuttle... we are in France...



Less than one hour later... exiting le Shuttle... we are in UK ... The road of the 'Lords'  Cool Wink M20 !!  Kiss  arrow



My navigation car system says : "One hour to go before your final destination". Usually, we eat AFTER picking the game, but this time... let's eat BEFORE...  Tongue ... Hey ... This is a road trip about an hamburgers isn't it?  Roll Eyes Tongue So this is THE road trip for such pictures  arrow



Darth Nunette : "Burger King? Not again?"

...but ... but ... This is THE Burger road trip! Come on  Wink Roll Eyes Tongue  arrow



How to resist to Burger King Roll Eyes ARGHHHH  Grin  arrow



This is ... a tasty Burger!  Kiss  arrow



Listen Nunette... Since 1954...



...

...

Yes? ... and? ...what are you looking???  

...





...




 Ghost  Grin


Mhhh.... ok, let's go back to the story  Wink

Driving in UK is still a little bit dangerous... keeping the left... something it can be frightening  roll eyes



For some reasons... I'm now thinking about the game SPEEDWAY...



... and I don't know why Roll Eyes Tongue  arrow



 Grin

...and... here we are... here's the pride... I was waiting for this moment a long time... she is there  Kiss Kiss Kiss  arrow



I cannot believe it... Rav is finally ok to sell me this beautiful cabinet : BURGERTIME  Kiss  arrow



As you can see, the cabinet is in very nice shape  Kiss  arrow



We talk about the arcade scene... the difficulty to maintain these games alive... and many others things... I played some games too  Tongue ....but ... I'm a little bit sad for Rav' ... I know how he likes its games, such this BT, but now he's moving on something else...

Ok, let's load Mr Pepper :







Maximum protection of course  Smiley



Deal is done... Thanks again for selling this cabinet to me, Rav'  Kiss ... you know I'll take care of it  Kiss Kiss Kiss



Ok, it's time to go back to home...

Hey? WHat's this ... definitively not a DeLorean... but maybe a real time machine?  Roll Eyes  arrow



I'm very exited... I'm bringing back a BurgerTime  Kiss ...but I still have to be careful ... Ok Nunette... Keep left... no problem  Grin



Each time I'm in UK... I try to bring back some local drinks & foods  Grin arrow



Still in UK... but not for long... here's the last exit...



Ops... we've missed the shuttle. So we have to wait maybe 25 minutes... So we have some time to watch around... hey! rabbits here Grin  arrow



...Pepper has been 'Dr Peppered' by Darth Nuno  Grin  arrow



Ok, le Shuttle is ready... let's go in...





During the 'under channel' travel : I'm sleeping ... close to my ...  Roll Eyes Tongue Kiss  Grin Grin Grin  arrow



...



 Ghost Ghost Ghost  Grin Grin Grin

Arriving in France...





...and later... in few meters... a new BurgerTime cabinet will enter in Belgium  Tongue  Space Ace Space Ace Space Ace  arrow



During this road trip, a very special moment... see the counter ... what'll happen??? Back to zero  Roll Eyes Roll Eyes Roll Eyes ?



No!  Grin It's a modern car  Grin Grin Grin arrow



22:35 ... arriving at home ... safe ... and happy  Kiss  arrow





Trip : Belgium > France > UK > France > Belgium
Total length : 16h26min - 1167 km on the road, 100km under water (Eurotunnel)

I'm too tired to unload the cab... I'll do it tomorrow  Cool

ZZZZzzzz....Zzzzzz..zzzzZZZzz  Smiley
