Re: 1995 Ford Eldorado Shuttle bus

Thanks my friend.
The camping site is not so big but the people who come here are all so nice.
Perry and Coline(the owners) were former circus artists and opened the camp site about 8 years ago I guess.
Here is a small photo presentation on youtube of one of my holidays.



I will take pics and will film with my GoPro HERO II camera during the ride down the hill with the bus like I did with this one.
http://youtu.be/Vup4s8rvIu4
On the end of the week I make a presentation on you tube again.
Tonight and tomorrow night I have to work a few days more and monday evening we leave Antwerp on our trip to the south of France.

Re: 1995 Ford Eldorado Shuttle bus

Wednesday we had an early start to meet the truck driver from IVENS transport in Antwerp.

It was -1C(30F) and the car was frozen.





After a short meeting with the driver , we were going back to the campsite.

I put the GoPro camera on the rear window of the bus and hit the road down the hill to get it on the low loader of the truck.

Re: 1995 Ford Eldorado Shuttle bus

We also had a little bit of luck during the loading.
When the bus was almost on the trailer, one of the ramps plipped of the rear.
It was time for me to hit the pedal.
But at the end all went well.

Re: 1995 Ford Eldorado Shuttle bus

After loading and securing the package we went to Carcassonne to have a walk.
A well preserved medieval city with lots of boutiques, restaurants and cafe's.
At this time it is very easy there becouse summer holidays are over for most of the people.

We took some more picts,
