P.S. Can I afford a cup of coffee? How much is a small bottle of Spa Blauw? *** Sniff ***

Regards,
Dirk

Hi DIrk,

I'm glad that you will join the event! :-)

PS Rob, we will go for a beer, right?


They have plenty of good beer like "Arcen", "Gulpen" and "Hertog Jan". All **NOT** brewed by the "Reinheitsgebot". :lol:

Do not worry about the beer. ;-)
Best Regards, Rob.

No comment on the 'Reinheitsgebot', but :idea: it might be better to switch to
coffee ... :twisted:

Oh Jeez You Guys!

Rob, I'm really looking forward to hearing the stories from your trip, break a leg baby! I remind you *again* to take the camera.

As for the beer, please have one for me! Remember, we just don't have real beer here in America. Never lose a chance to try a really good local German Beer, *ever*. :)

Then you can have a good coffee, and drive home to upload all the pictures. I'm not even going to get into the difference between American and European Coffee...

Sorry that we did not found much time for each other, but the IGM-Kaarst had sooooo many Q's.;-)

But all in one it was a nice day meeting many kind people! :-)
Best Regards, Rob.

Hi Fred,

glad to have had a 'real' conversation with you, but in distance I won: 630KM in 5 hours. A mixture of 140, 100 and 180KM/H did do the job well. It's a pitty the unlimitted speed is not allowed on the whole A61 because with my 'Space-Shuttle', VW-Sharan, it is realy good to have some decent speed.;-) (It could use some wings though...)
Best Regards, Rob.

meeting in Venlo

Postby derookamer » 12.04.2008, 21:16

Ok Rob

I think in england they say: a man always finds his master, who knows next time :)



And of course also Dirk thanks for the nice pictures (except the one with my image !?)

I hope ( we hope and expect ) next time we visit Venlo , Peter and his fellows has changed to Rocrail :)

Hi Fred, Jürgen (our latest member of this forum) and Rob,

happy to hear that you all made the way home in a safe way.

I think it's time to have another Rocrail round table, continue the discussions, exchange experiences and have one or two (german :wink: ) beers together.

Best regards,
Dirk

You both are looking great!
Discussion about 'How I Look' is closed;-)

The next round table I wish to be not sooo far away, but some conditions of location and facilities could influence this wish. ;-)

But be welcome to make proposals.

First proposal: Neustadt a/d Weinstrasse: Schloss Hambach.
Best Regards, Rob.
