R-E-S-P-E-C-T for everything, guys! lack of sleep, lack of food, lack of sun and lack of good music Tongue

although the arcade gods were throwing one obstacle after the other at you, you've overcome the odds and made it there in time, your persistance really paid off. would have been a total bummer if you hadn't been able to get the truck or catch the train! i really bow before you!!!

this is the mother of all roadtrips - and the arcade part hasn't even started yet ...

Excellent!
The two white spots in the middle of the windshield = our over tired faces  Wink
But at this point we were so excited that we couldn't feel anything except that sweet vintage arcade smell.
Love the writing!!! I got goose bumps reading the euro tunnel part thinking we would really miss our slot this time  Grin

Went back to the car rental place today and brought our saviour a bottle of champagne to thank him.
He waited for me for more than an hour in a cold empty storage place on a friday evening...
...and without his good will and patience this road trip would have been "totally different" (meaning "sucked big time").
He told me that after I left, it took him 3h30 to get to his place (which is normally around 1h15 away).
So thank you again and have one on me Mister Lux  Wink


(arrow is pointing on the champagne bottle box)

... and while I was there I asked them to recalculate our renting costs in another way (extra kilometers instead of extra day) and saved around 100 on the final bill  Wink Wink
