i’m glad that you are as excited as me to meet in Belgium!
I will gladly accept your offer to stay the night 12/13, I’m not yet sure about the return trip, but I will decide at the meeting.
I would prefer to go by bike all the way, and speed of 100 km/h on highway suits me very well, so we can travel together. Maybe I will need to stop at the gas stations more often, the fuel tank is really small…
And about the farthest travel: Google maps calculated exactly 1077 km each way (I don’t know where Tango found 2000km ;-)), so if you have anyone from Scotland, he/she can still beat me!
