Just let us know when you plan to visit.  We have had so many friends and relatives come over that we have a tour guide routine all worked out.

I am sure you are enjoying the 911...nice ride.  I was unhappy with that 86 Targa I had for two reasons:  parts were far too expensive, and there was too much body flex.  I assume a coupe would not flex as much.

I keep looking at getting a toy car, but it is hard to justify when we barely use the car we have.  As for now, my daily ride is a $1500 2018 Dutch made Gazelle with 30 gears, hydraulic brakes, Shimano gear sets and shifters, frame lock, generator on the front axle, and suspension on the front fork and seat.  Yep, hydraulic brakes on a bike.

Such great travel. That is awesome. We were on the opposite French coast, along the Rivera. Eze and Villefranche sur Mer were our favorites. As a car guy, you need go see the Nurburgring. Go see a race, like the 24 hours of Nurburgring and/or drive the track on a tourist day. It is an unforgettable experience.

I have often heard how beautiful Bruges is. Hope to make it back to Europe in a few years.

I have been autocrossing a Scion FR-S for the last 4 years. I sold it last week to my niece, Kate, who has been my co-driver  for several years. I bought a 2011 911 last month. It is primarily for track days and to use to do the One Lap competition in 2020 with my older son, Dave. That is a bucket list item for both of us. I am doing more track days than autocrosses these days. I expect that will continue.

Again, great to hear from you.

Hey David!  What you are driving this year for autocross?  Have you had a favorite of the many cars you have raced?
You are right about the great travel opportunities.  In October we will be here two years; in that time we have been to Berlin, Madrid, London, Lille, Rouen, Brussels many times of course, Holland many times, Cologne, Tours, Caen.  This week we drove to Cap Gris Nez in France for lunch, and Friday went shopping in Holland, a half hour away.  Late in October we are headed back to Paris. 

In July we did something I said I would never do...went on a cruise.  It was the destination that mattered, Spitsbergen, only 11 degrees south of the North Pole, 24 hour daylight, polar bears, and all.....very cool stuff.  It was a very small ship and we had educational programs when at sea.  On the way back we made 4 stops in Norway.

However, we are in the most beautiful city in Northern Europe, Bruges, "Venice of the North"  I never get tired of walking in town and taking in the sights and there is always something cultural going on.  Check it out:

Hi, Michael. It is great to hear from you. It is cool that you are so close to Spa. It is one of my favorite F1 races. I will watch it tomorrow afternoon since we have an autocross in the morning.

I would think that one of the cool things about being in Europe is that so many countries are a short drive, train ride, or flight. Micky and I went to Italy, France, and Monaco last Spring. We were fortunate to be able to catch the Monaco F1 race. That was definitely a bucket list item.

Hope things continue to go well. Best wishes.
