29th of November 2009 / 6:00 AM

Road Trip' day!

This gonna be an hard day... Let's prepare the usual stuff :



Wait a minute! What about these beers? Drinking beers and ... drive?  shock

No no... these beers are a part of the deal with the seller  Kiss

Check up...

* CAR + various protective stuff ?

   Ready!  arrow




* Trailer?

   Ready!  arrow



A trailer you said? It must be a big game... or maybe two cabinets  Roll Eyes  Cool

OK, get ready for a new UK roadtrip (for the fifteenth time just in UK  Cool ). Here's the -well know- destination  Smiley  arrow



For my personal record  Grin  arrow



Starting time : 6h47AM


Fly me to the moon



Let me play among the stars...




A lot of rain these last days (November Rain)... we are now in France... see the resut  arrow





3h36min after the departure... arriving at the Euro Tunnel @ Calais... Since so many UK Road Trip' ... no more fear  Cool



Let's put the credit card used for the reservation...



!Too late for the scheduled train!  Twisted



Boaf, no a big problem... but we'll have to wait 25 minutes for the next one... I hate to lose precious time ...

Ok for the next train  arrow



Welcome aboard  Cool



How to spend time during the channel trip... let's see Chasing The Ghosts for example  Roll Eyes  arrow



Welcome in UK ... land of many interesting cabinets  Tongue



The FAMOUS M20 that lead you to London direction...



Like in Belgium and France early this morning, the waiter is very bad here!



Wind... rain... a lot of work for the firemen  Undecided  arrow



Welcome in the Middle Earth... the Mordor!  arrow

Hey! What's this? Sir Arthur?  arrow



Do not worry... I'm coming  Wink

More rain! A real nightmare  shock I'm worried about the waiter coz' I'll have to bring back something on the trailer...



And here we are... NYPD 'Arcade Division"... stay calm... I'm just doing a patrool  Cool  arrow



I'm here for this baby... MOON PATROL  Kiss Kiss Kiss  arrow



I knew the game didn't work... no more information... Let's plug it and make a quick check...



The monitor power up, but nothing on the screen...  I'll have an other board from Rav' but he doesn't know if it works or not.

Let's load the cabinet inside the car... with the help of 'Andy' (If I remember well the name?)  arrow







Done... but why a trailer? Because of this  arrow



Ghosts'n'Goblins  Kiss Kiss Kiss An other one on my 'must have' list!  Kiss



For this cabinet, the game plays 'blind' ... because the monitor is not working.

Because this one will be on the trailer... and because the waiter is horrible today... let's protect the cab' to the maxxx  arrow





Ok, but what about the bottom of the cab'?



Because we are three of us (plus Nunette but she's the photograph here  Wink ), we can raise the cabinet and put the protective film all along, like this  arrow



A last protection for the top of the game...



...and let's attach the cabinet to the trailer :



I'm also here for a *working* vector monitor for my 'SPACE WARS' :



A last picture before the departure... thanks to Rav' for the deal... such games are almost impossible to find here, except if you import them directly. Thanks also to Andy for the help (loading process)  Smiley



Let's go! Heavy rain!  Undecided  arrow



I cross the fingers for the Ghosts'n'Goblins... I hope the 'water proof' package will resist during the huge trip to go back ... My God! Water everywhere  shock  arrow



 Ghost

We are on the move since 6:00am... and we still did not eat something, expect few cakes and chocolates... Nunette insists for eating something now... Let's try to enter in this Pizza Hut  arrow



Holy Jesus! I cannot go further in the Parking!!! I've to way back! See the water  shock  arrow



Ok, let's continue to drive, and ... with some luck... we will find a restaurant ...



BINGO  Roll Eyes Grin  arrow



Because the car is parked a little bit too far from the Burger King, I won't be able to keep an eye on the trailer... so we decide to eat inside the car (I HATE TO DO THAT when eating fries and burgers!) ... Eat like a teenager spirit  Grin confused  arrow



Because of the rain, and because of the trailer... I have to be very careful... and I have to drive 'gently' ... oh no... traffic jam now  Twisted



...but finally arriving at FOLKESTONE... for the Euro Tunnel...



Ready to enter into Le Shuttle... a man is alone... very scaring... see on the top of the train! ... I didn't notice this  shock  arrow



Like a pirate after a battle, I check the treasures 'gained'  Tongue  arrow





The 'package' on the trailer seems to resist so far by the way.



Bye bye Uk... A last run to go... Approx 4 hours to go  Undecided ...



...and ... something like four hours later... almost at home  Wink But ... what time is it by the way  Roll Eyes Tongue  Grin (let's see if there are some fans here  Roll Eyes )  arrow



Home sweet home  Cool  arrow



I'm very tired... but I don't want to let the GNG outside during the night!



I don't like to unload game alone, and specially this one (very heavy)... but I do it anyway  Tongue  arrow



There's no more free space in the Nuno's Lair, but it would be to complicated to put the cabinet inside my house now, so let put it 'in the entrance' of the lair... I'll request some help tomorrow  Wink  arrow



OK, now the data :

Trip : Belgium > France > UK > France > Belgium
Total length : 17h20min - 1181 km on the road, 100km under water (Eurotunnel)

Ghosts'n'Goblins *dedicated*  Kiss Kiss
Moon Patrol *dedicated*  Kiss Kiss
Vector monitor ... I hope *working*  Grin

I'll open *dedicated* post for each cab'

I know a guy here in Italy that has the original dedicated cab (imported from Canada), if I can convince him to sell it would be better  Tongue Space Ace

Congratulations Bruno with those cabs, especially moon patrol, one of my favourites. The cab still looks in great condition.

And it is nice to see familiar places that André and I visited also.  Cheesy

holy freaking smoke - WHAT A SCORE!!! i have to admit: i'm TOTALLY JEALOUS because of the Moon Patrol! i want that game so much, but it seems to be extremely difficult to find, but you proved me wrong - again. did you have a difficult time fixing that deal with rav, because i'm having a hard time communicating with him. he rarely answers to personal messages. i'd like to get some stuff from him as well, but it turns out to be extremely difficult.

nevertheless, congrats on that score - you did it again!!!

Thanks for your nice comments Wink

Regarding the "negotiation" with Rav', yes It can takes ages  Grin, but don't rush the thing... even if it's hard to wait an answer when you really want a cab' He's very nice  Smiley
