Guys, if you didnīt already guess it from the recent pics of wrapping in cabs, The Big Cab Transportation Day is due, tomorrow to be exact.

Ecerywhere h The Netherlands cabs will be transported, from secret locations to the soon to become center of the Retro Gaming Universe, which is >>> HILVERSUM

YEAH!!

I know, The Retro Game Experience is still (only!) one week away, but these delicate machines need time to acclimatize once they arrive in a new environnement.  Smiley

To get you in the mood, here are some pictures of tonightīs activities:

To start, this is a familiar van, the same one that Gyruss and I used during our UK raid last year. It is huge:








with lots of space:





In it went 7 cabs





Which were hard to find back once placed neat and tight





And still lots of Space (the cargo area is 6m tall, of which about 2 m is used), which will be filled tomorrow, more than once!





Here a picture of a nutcase





And his lovely assistent






Allright guys, if you have them, then please post pictures of your Eurocade 2013 cab transport here, in this thread.

Holy crap, that van is even longer than I had expected !!!

Too bad I am not allowed to drive it.

You see you need a "big trailer" license to drive this. Up to a certain year you got that "for free" when you got your normal car driver's license but I think I was 1 or 2 years "too late" for that...and now you have to do a separate exam......you see Erik is just a bit older than I am  Grin Grin Grin Grin

Anyway, Erik will not be known as CKONG anymore but as "Trucker' rick"  Grin Grin

By the way, that assistant looks lovely even with working gloves Grin Grin Grin Grin

Thanks to a joint effort today of Team Eurocade and Team Nozomi, we managed to transport about 30 games from several places in Holland to Hilversum, in preparation for the upcoming event.

This is just a small part of all the games (arcade and console) that will be present, and of course we are also very happy with the contribution of you guys here. Together we will make this a historic happening.  Smiley

Here some pictures (we want pictures, donīt we?)
