i know, i'm extremely sorry, but the problem was that we had to be "home" before the kids went to bed, otherwise we would have woken them up again - and you know what that means ...  Cry Angry Ghost

PART 4 - NIGHTCAP

after loading in the rampage at pascal's place, the last part of our journey begins. as if we wouldn't already be exhausted enough, the weather decides to take a turn for the worse!  Angry



for the largest part of the remaining four hours on the road, the view through the front window is like this  arrow



when the sky finally clears up about half an hour from HOME, we take one last break on a parking place to check our "luggage" one more time



with her mobile phone, charlotte takes the following picture of me ...



.. taking the following picture Wink which i like a lot!



great colors!



man, it's beautiful in the "lovely valley of the tauber" where we live Kiss



last exit: lauda-königshofen



because we don't have a lot of time for unloading the games (we have to return the transporter), this shed next to my storage will have to do for a couple of days!



right on time, patrik (who owns the shed) arrives back from his daughter's baptism to help us get the games out of the van. what a great way to end a day for him  Wink



we'll just put them over there on the ground



here's the one which cost us a lot of time (and energy)



and out it goes



toobin will probably be picked up by the austrian collector over the course of the next few days



domino woman  Cool



we've got to be careful with this one because of the damage to the cab!



four down, two more to go!



based on the late scatman john: i'm a sweatman



pac-land enters the stage



putting it down slowly!



one more game left: moon patrol! because this is my favourite game and the cabinet is in such a nice condition, it gets some extra padding



careful with this one



the eagle has landed!!!



no comment



one last step



and here they are, 5 (+1) new games have just arrived from england



it was one hell of a trip, but well worth it. i'd only do it again though under the following conditions: for a pong, for a tapper or another load of games Wink



after returning the transporter to its original location, the final results are in  arrow



one continent, five countries, 1889 kilometers, 36 hours 26 minutes on the road - this roadtrip is OFFICIALLY OVER!

Q: which was the toughest point of the adventure?

A: the toughest part was staying awake while on the road. especially the last four hours from belgium to germany were difficult and we had to take a lot of breaks to get some fresh air. fortunately, i realize when i'm too tired to go on and i don't try to push my mind beyond that point. it's better to make a stop for a couple of minutes than to fall asleep behind the wheel!
