Photos HU Meeting Germany summer 2012

Hi eyeryone,

my photos from the meeting are up here:

Thank you all for making this a few remarkable days for me! And thanks to Jens for making this possible.

Thoughts of the minute (tongue-in-cheek):
- How many Austrians are needed to screw a lightbulb in? (just curious, for a tyrechange at least 2 are needed - or 1 Cuban)
- Taking part at the HU-Meeting: 35€ - Leaving your trousers on during the HU-Olympics: priceless ...

See you all in fall at the Schneeburg again!

Cheers

Stefan

P.S. Someone on the loose in the western Alps (around Aosta, offroad on Assietta-Kammstraße & Ligurische Grenzkammstraße) between 9.7 an 20.7.)?

Really NICE pictures! Thanks for sharing them.

[Any way to have them at a bigger resolution, or maybe the very last one (the whole group)?]

Luis, the Cuban guy, was indeed kind enough not to change the tire with soup spoons! He explained me a way fix an issue with my brake bleeding: how to make a new seat for the cone of the bleeder nipple using the ultimate state-of-the-art aerospace composites... cigarrette ash and oil!

I told him this kind of workshops might have a great success in Viena.

I looked for a Suzuki Samurai but couldn't find it, till I saw the last picture (I guess that was your car). Thanks for sharing the whole lot, some unbelievable moments during the HU Olympics!
