Great weather and the URGENT need for some hollidays
forced us to leave.

As i had no further parts (U-joint) to built in, we have to handle
an ammount OF STRANGE NOISES.
If it wont go anymore, we will have have to ask ADAC (AAA) to
pick us up and bring us back home.

Will tell you , how far our wounded A will bring us.

Looks like a great trip. We drove the Romantische Straße about 20 years ago, but didn't get east. Beautiful country and charming villages. Keep us posted!

Haben eine tolle Reise meine Kolleginnen Ford Kerl! What a splend little Tudor you have there....enjoy your springtime roadtrip. My family came from Heidelberg bound for the U.S. back in 1824. Germany is wonderous.

Be well -

Thank you for your nice comments, which i really appreciate.

After a nice evening with Motorcycle-friends
in Gifhorn,
we had a short night.

Getting older, means to know that in advance
which
made me plan a short leg on ourDay 3 .

Heading north again, we passed thebig flat area,
which was caused by last ice-age.


High average speed and no more

which caused energie-prices to rise 30 % (just last year)
