So in no time, I prepare my horse and usual things for a such adventure...
Oh well...yes... the pictures... well, sorry... this road trip has been done long time ago, and the they faded with time/sun, sorry about this!
Well, I'm on schedule this morning... but at the last minute, I discovered the result of the 'Navigation Car System' last use by Darth Nunette
No time to find back the iron soldier, and other tools to repair the cable... let's try to leave anyway...
