::Saturday - 23rd of August 2008 ::

Remember the PacMan Jr / Gyruss road trip... and the 'Three sides for every story' picture  (from one of my all time favorite funk/metal band : EXTREME) ? Remember arrow



Well... this is the second part of the story  Wink Yes... I already have two cabs from that seller : Gyruss + Pac Man Jr... but there is an other one... and I cannot MISS it  Grin Roll Eyes

OK, let's prepare the usual 'road trip' stuff :



...yes, I'm taking the latest (at the time) Retro Gamer Mag... for reading it during the Euro Tunnel Journey  Cool

It's very early this time... 5:35am ZZZZZzzzzzzzzzzzzZZZZZZZZZZZ  arrow



The Darth Car is ready...



Here's the plan for today  Shocked arrow



For my 'distance driven during road trip' statistics  Roll Eyes Tongue Grin  arrow



I don't like to drive in the dark  confused But the reward of the day give me THE motivation  Cool



Few hours later... I'm crossing the Belgian / France border  arrow



...and later...here's the all famous 'EuroTunnel'~ Kiss  arrow



...the 'check in' machine...  Wink This time, it allows my wife to play the Atari 2600 Ms Pac Mac port  Grin  arrow



Hey, I don't want this version please... I'm here for the real stuff  Grin Grin Grin

OK, entering the beast  arrow



'Reading time' during the crossing (less than one hour under the water  pacman)



...and Welcome to UK ... mind the gap ... mind the gap...   Roll Eyes Grin



The world famous M20 ... the world famous 'Dartford Bridge' .... still the same story in fact... but I assure you it's not the same pictures  Wink Grin  arrow

On location... here's the beauty (...and the beastGrin arrow



As you can see, it's an empty cab... but its cosmetic condition is hopefully not to bad  Kiss Let's load it  arrow



This is it... I love my car... I can load so many different cab's in it  Kiss Kiss Kiss  arrow



Let's be sure that I'll bring back all the parts needed in order to rebuild this Miss  Roll Eyes Kiss



Let's protect the original bezel before the journey :



The seller is very nice... but this is the worst part of the road trip ...  oppps I've to pay him of course.



Even If I'm closing my eyes, I'm very happy  Kiss

Ok, let's go back to Belgium ... what's that strange black smoke  shock  Huh?  arrow



It looks like an house is ...burning  Shocked Oh my god   Shocked

One more time... driving on the Dartford Bridge...



We are hungry... Yes ! It's also a part of all 'road trip'  Roll Eyes Tongue Grin  arrow



Not a McDo, not a Burger King... but a ... WIMPY ? First time we eat that  pacman pacman pacman pacman



Ok, back on the road... here's the last control before entering the Euro Tunnel... Nothing to declare ? No No Mr ... We are just bringing back an old video game  Grin



Too late my UK friends... you've just lost an important game in the arcade history ... Ms Pac Man  Roll Eyes Tongue Grin
pacman Ghost Ghost Ghost Ghost
We are entering inside 'Le shuttle' ... nothing will stop us now  Twisted  arrow



During the 'cross'... I'm dreaming about a Miss Pac Man of course  Cheesy Grin Wink Wink  arrow



...but I've to be careful ... 'coz my wife is sitting just at my side  Roll Eyes Tongue

Few hours later... Belgium has now a new important arcade game, yessssss  Grin





I'm driving very slow... a cow seems to say something to my wife  Huh?  arrow



 Grin Grin Grin

And finally, we are at home  Smiley  arrow





1081km on the road during 14 hours and 35 minutes ...not too bad  Cool ... (faster than the first trip for the Gyruss/Pac Man Jr - 1107km / 17h20min)

Unloading the game ... into the Nuno's Lair V2 of course  Roll Eyes arrow



It looks very good isn't it ?  Kiss Kiss Kiss  arrow



All the parts I got with the cab... all the important ones are there  Kiss  arrow

Even If I'm closing my eyes, I'm very happy

<Chuckle> That made me laugh...

Wimpy sucks, expensive and small portions..... They used to be massive in the 80's and then they went all "restauranty" trying to get rid of their "fast food" image. I mean COME ON! They also used to do a halfer pounder burgers, in those days they were good!

if they still do the ' Bender in a Bun' ( embarrasing to ask for one though Grin)  you have to try one, its a garlic sausage in a bun instead of a burger, AMAZING.


NOTE a bender is a slang term for a homosexual, so you can see why i don't like asking for a bender in a bun, i ask for the garlic sausage burger. oppps oppps oppps
