10. Monoconnection Meeting

We had a lot of rain for our money. It turned the lawns at the campsite into the green green grass of home - wet and muddy.

On Friday we enjoyed one heavy downpour after another. All the same, Ton and I embarked on a hike in the morning. It was to be the 5 km hike. However, soon the trail was closed and we diverted to the 7 km hike. After about an hour's walk, in the GoreTex boots, we reached a bridge over the canal. Ton had no bottle of water with him and started complaining: "No bloody water!" It soon dawned on me that Ton had no idea where we were. I proposed to cross the bridge and walking back on the other side of the canal. All to soon the trail left the canal and we walked on towards the Nirwana. Completely lost we were visited by one more shower and fled to a barn for shelter. There we managed to raise alarm with the help of Ton's smart phone. Lambert arrived after a couple of minutes and I enjoyed my first ride in a potent V8 diesel.

Friday afternoon saw us at Carrosso in Oldemarkt. A company dealing in classic cars. The manager greeted us most cordially and entertained us with coffee and cookies. In the showroom was an impressive array of classic cars like several Jaguars, MGs, Triumphs and a rare Citroën cabrio.

On saturday morning at 11 o'clock we left the campsite for the habitual ride-out. Over twisty backroads we reached Gees where a flight show was on. They sent us to a muddy drenched field where I turned back. Passing along the site I didn't see a single airplane, only tractors. They should have done a show with sea planes. Though Saturday stayed mostly dry, we got our fair share of rain.

I can't say much about Saturday evening. We feasted on the buffet and our guest star arrived late, at an hour I was supposed to be asleep.

Some things never change: Tiresome 800+ km trips to and from, I'm the only Swiss and the 2nd oldest.
