Great pictures Derek. Can you put some names to faces?
Great Pictures and so many too. ;-)
Well, the old ugly bugger, wearing a Civinfo.com T-Shirt or Sweatshirt, or a Honda Hoodie, is me !

And the Galaxy Grey Civic, with the Gold 'engine bling', is mine

I'll let the others identify themselves ?

p.s. - I mostly used a Tripod and Wireless Remote Shutter Release, to avoid 'camera shake' - and it didn't hurt, that the whole JAE Weekend was very sunny !

The saga continues !!!

Asimo Date : 18.09.2012 : Tuesday

Day 25 of JDR's Log

Well, I wasn't finished after all - up this morning at 05:00 (that's Cruel & Unusual Punishment !) - travelling by Boeing 737 rather than Honda Civic

Why ? - early flight North, to Trondheim - beginning my new job

Now checked in to my Hotel, and have wandered the streets a bit
  • found all the places we were, at the last Scandinavian meet
  • trusted my nose, and almost immediately discovered three British Pubs !
  • better still, I tracked down Trondheim "Mikrobryggeriet" (Microbrewery) - they brew the beers in the rear of the building, and sell them in their pub at the front - great stuff
  • oh, and I've also detected the local strip club and the best "checkout" bar
  • all inside less than 1.5 hours - I even impress myself :)

I was juts reading through this thread, chuckling away to myself, reading it as I knew JDR, he just seemed to have so much fun not only on his trips but almost as much in telling us all what he'd been upto.

***Mods - Can this be pinned, if only for a short time, just so the young'uns can see what he was all about??? ***

I have 'pinned' it for the time being.

Of course we will look at a longer term tribute.
What better tribute than to change Decembers COTM to a tribute to RIDDELL? For this months at least, like a photo of him or of his car.
