Tomorrow: take off!

We even solved our Oil-leak!

The problem with the leak was that we barely couldn't breath in the car, so really, it was becoming a problem. Captains JM en Snef opened one last time the engine and found what had to be found: the leak.  We tried to fix it with things we found in the JM's father's closet, and halleluia, it worked!  
Captain U'Roon drove more than 200km with it, and things seem OK now. 'll just have to hold on for another 7000km. 

Tomorrow around noon, Team Unagi sets off to Copenhagen.

Next entry is one from the road.

God speed,

Captain Snef

Almost ready to go.. but than again...not

In exactly a week (around this time) we're off to Scandinavia.
Last tuesday the Battlecar got his number and team name professionally (ahum) applied.

Last thing to do now is to clean it, to pack it, to drive it and especially to ignore the smoke coming from under the hood and the persistent smell of gas in the car...
