if I made mistakes on the translation, please feel free to fix it

I'll be there at sunday 12th, several members of the Madagroup are going and Bas Pels will be going too for the fish auction on sunday
it'll be a looooong drive.
450 kilometers in the morning, fish auction, meeting up with the Madagroupers and then the same 450km in reverse in my rickety 23 year old Toyota toaster
it's gonna be a true Road Trip with a fishy smell :wink:

Seems like it will be a great convention.

I would love to find out what is revealed in Yves Fermon's lecture: On the situation in the Democratic Republic of Congo at the Lake's West coast, afterwards.

FWIW; I'm fairly easy to spot; black clothes, cowboy boots, long hair, short brown and grey beard; I basically look like a biker without a bike :lol:

workin on that, but even if I already had a fat boy it wouldn't be used for this trip; just try to get a load of fish home on one; won't work
so it's the ol' rickety Japanese Roadster that's getting slogged all over Northern France's highways :mrgreen: :wink:

hopefully meeting any of you there!
