    Hi guys-especially members of the Duch R4L squadron on here.
    staying in Germany for a few days,we'd thought we'd drive out West towards the coast
    and in the off-chance our Dutch brethren isn't all up in Norwayland by now,I thought I'd
    ask if someone is home and wants to meet up somewhere around you? A cafe or pub/bar
    would be nice if we could make it..
    -We're Not out to get housed/dined/wined/adopted(!)-or other freebies/benefits
    -just a get-together or meet with fellow-quatrellists along our way
    -If you're ready,willing-or just able ,will do it too! PM me and I'll get back (anyways)asap
    as plans developes

    PS:
    Any BON addresses/tips re R4L/R5A guys in the know/parts/dealers/afficionados in the
    NL Greatly Appreciated (all since wife told me she definately wants to go parts-digging
    at local junk-yards (late) last night -Or that is what I'll tell her she said anyways.. -R.

    I'm afraid we'd be long gone by then Jurjen-I suspect all coppers will have our mug-shots in 3D so we'd best be out of cuntry :cool:
    but -there has to be a next time yes? and if you Ever take a wrong turn in life and end up in Norwayland just give us a holler and
    we'll have the tea-kettle on spiked with some genever as we like it-right? -R.

    some of the major issues re the state of the world b4 we turn in early (wifey tells me she wants go shopping to-
    morrow so best I build some strenght and patience as per usual it Will be a bloody massacre :o -Reid.

    If you are still around the Rotterdam area tomorrow be welcome at Chateau-Renault in Rijsbergen. No need for formal introductions or chaperones.

    Regards,
    Robert.

    sorry for our silence guys (and doll) Had to haul a** down to Calais due to sellers change of plans-
    then had a phone from a friend between Chaumont and Nogent (Haute Marne) which made us change plans
    once more,as it's about an opportunity I just could not miss out on.. Possibly more about that later....
    All I can say to the nice people above is I'm sorry it didn't work out re us meeting up this time,we will take
    other route on our way home so must take a raincheck this time but trust we'll meet up another time
    Thanx much for the good NL-tip BlueGreen! I think you may have actually have a point there !! -Reid.
