...than find a part-time-contact in the kill-switch
(german phrase: "Nato-Knochen")

Somewhat intersting, that a new killswitch will point into
a different (very strange) angle

We had a short night in Bergheim and started into day 3.
Blue is the morning-tour towards Schloß-Dyck
( http://www.schloss-dyck-classic-days.de/index.php )
Grey is the late afternoon tour to "Weert" in Netherlands,
where we are right now.

Christoph,

What great photographs!! My family came from Schwaigern, between Heilbron and Eppingen, in the 1840's. Have visited there and found it to be very beautiful. Perhaps your Model A travels can take you there at some point. The Neckar River is especially gorgeous.

Hi Joop
We stayed at Weert in a nice Hotel (with Garage)
I liked it a lot (Hotel with the most TV-channels i ever found).
Nice Steaks, good (belgian) white beer

wow
we travelled over 1000km now and the car is doing fine.
im a little worn out and my arms hurt - steering is bad....

Close to the Nordsee-border, Hotels are expensive
and we are lucky to find a good one toady .
Tomorrow we will travel the coastline and maybe we will
stay another nigth in that Hotel
