Yup, we're doing it again, another Euro driving trip in a Giulia Super again.

This trip will be starting in Alicante, Spain on 21 April, up through So. France, 3 plus weeks in Italy (take in the Mille Miglia 11 May and the Alfa museum), up over the Alps to western Austria for a week, then toddle back to Belgium via eastern France over several days, and end-up visiting Roland in Belgium before departing 7 June. The car is another abitsa converted 1600 Super now having its resto finalized by our friend Ben at Italclassic in Spain. It's Dutch blue with tan (Maremma) interior. He's doing a very thorough and sweet job. More on that later. At the end of the trip, we'll ship it home like Pinyo last year.

QUESTION: So the question to my "homies" is: should I do another trip blog or are you'all getting tired of this crap? And, if so, how should it be different form the last? Someone's got to take it for the team here so I'll jump the grenade again. But, why not come over and join in?

Bruce,

Although, as you know, your blog made me feel sick with envy (;)) I must admit that I really enjoyed it, and did not miss any of it. So if you are prepared to spend the time doing it again, you have a big YES from me!!

Blog?? Heck yes

"should I do another trip blog or are you'all getting tired of this crap?"

Most of us are only armchair travelers. I eat up that crap up !!
Since my unemployment ran out I can hardly pay attention anymore.
Blog away !!

OK Bruce, I told you we have ways of making you post. Do you still doubt me?

So, you are leaving out on San Jacinto Day? You'll miss the party. I'll be at Muster.
