Welcome Pikey's and Mejitano's !

 

Hola,

I'm Johnny and welcome to my blog!  This blog is basically for all the look-ee-loo's who want to know what I am up to, where I am and what sort of shenanigan's I got myself into!!??  YIKES!!!  ( That's me below. Pretty blunt of me eh )

Here is my story...............I'm off to see the world!!?? Off'd the house, left the job and temporarily left behind my beloved ones.  This is something I have been either putting off, procrastinating, dreaming of or making every excuse up in the world to put off. Come Monday, June 15th, this will all change. I depart for the first part of my once in a life time experience.

The first leg of the trip will be in Europe. Luckily for me I will have a few buddies with me on hand to help out with the navigating, holding my beer cups and making sure I don't get into any sort of trouble??? Though this will only be for the first few months.  Dougie, my Tovarish from Siberia, and Linda, my $2 trick friend with clean hands.........will be on hand for the first few weeks of the trip. Eh Mike Linarelli will be around for about a 2 month period.  (It's really too bad he doesn't speak much) OKAY! 

As far as I know, the first few weeks have an itinerary. First off I land in Dusseldorf, Germany. From there I catch a train to Rotterdam, Holland and meet up with mon ami Leh Ohn. He's originally from Paris, France but moved to Holland. Je ne sais pas? Any hoot, I will meet up with eh Mike there and within a few days Dougie and Linda will show up.  The plan is to depart to the Budel event ( http://www.beautifulbudel.nl/ ) down in southern Holland early Friday morning. Spend the weekend like a bunch of drunk guys who just graduated or as if we were in spring break.  From there we will head over to Bruges.  It's in Belgium.   ( watch the movie  " IN BRUGES ", then you will get my comment Clin d'oeil) Since Dougie is a photographer for the Siberia Bureau of the National Geographic, he will go ballistic with his camera. After Bruges we will spend a few hours in Antwerp, then head over to Beh Beh Teh (BBT http://www.bbt4vw.com/ ) for their Flemish Fiesta. OKAY!  Later that evening we are off to Rotterdam to spend the night at Leh Ohn's place. Then get up really early in the morning and head over to the village of HESSISCH OLDENDORF, in Germany ( http://www.uraltkaefer.de/e ) for the Vintage Treffen event. YIKES!!!! 

After 3 days of solid Vintage Volkswagen mayhem, we will cruise up into Denmark with our mates, The Andersen's. Thomas & Henrik are the two guys who come once a year to the "Colonies" and bring the craziest vintage parts known to VW fanatics. REALLY!  They live in the outskirts of Copenhagen and live, literally, blocks away from the forest and a 17th century fortress. The Andersen's will also be taking us to a "grave yard" some where in Sweden???  So that is something to look forward to. We plan on staying in Denmark for a week or so?  During our stay, we will be visiting Mr. Tonny Larsen of the Barndoor Dk. www.barndoor.dk .  Once Dougie and Linda leave, eh Mike Linarelli and I plan on heading into Sweden, then making our way to Norway?? Air Vin gave me this really cool map/route of a holiday he took up there a few years back.  Or we just may come back down into Germany and go camping on the Rhine River?? Either way, we have nothing to loose but plenty to gain.

Also, on another note.  While in Holland, we plan on visiting The Duke of Delft, Air Vin Von Stok lll. Who is a close personal friend of mine.  And as well, the most powerful figure in all Holland, Oskar Schindler. I met these two cats prior to the Invasion of Poland!!!  OKAY!  And if plans sort out properly on our way up to Copenhagen, we will make a pit stop and visit our favorite Comi buddy, Mätti, in Münster, Germany. Yes, the same town the Panzer Tank Museum is located. He's also a curator at this museum. This kid LOVES The Dukes of Hazzard???
