SCOTLAND TO AUSTRIA

So we left Ft. Bill. Lots of people were headed out to Wheels of Speed in Willingen but we just wanted to get to Austria and ride. We hitched a ride with Evan Turpen because he was driving solo so it worked out well. The first day we drove down Glasgow and dropped off the rental car. From there we drove down to London where we met up with 2 good friends of mine from Whistler...the Patten brothers, Dave and Steve. The two of them have a flat just outside of London so we dropped our stuff at theirs, grabbed some food and the 5 of us took the train in. Neither Keene nor Turpen had ever been to London before so as soon as we got to Liverpool station we hopped in a black cab and got the quickie tour of London...Big Ben, London Bridge, Buckingham Palace... Then we went to SoHo where the night really started. We just bar hopped it lets just say it was a ridiculous night :) The Pattens sure know how to do London...

We were up bright and early the next morning as the boys had to fly to Belfast for work and we had to hit the road so we drove down to Dover and caught the ferry over to Calis, France. After a long day of driving we got to Frankfurt where Keene and I bought train tickets for the next morning...destination Saalbach, Austria. So right now I am sitting on a train somewhere in Germany...
