Thanks Tracy

The move will be fine - I hope - the worst is over, the packing and sorting what to take and what to give away ... Once reasonably settled in, the build will continue :-) ... being closer to ScaleART will be nice too. Planning to go pay a visit to them too.

From average 90% humidity and 32C to low humidity and (if we ar lucky) 5C average in Januari - supposed to be a mild winter in Belgium ... First thing on the agenda is buying some warm clothing!

Already informed the family to crank up the heat in the house we rented before we arrive.

Actually will be glad to be able to go outside without getting drenched in sweat just checking the mailbox 15 meters from the door.

Reason we are moving in Januari is to avoid the dry season ... Last year it didn't rain for 3 months, was beastly hot and on top of that due to water shortage we didn't get water for 2 weeks. Should have figured that ... living high up on a ridge - last house on the water main - not enough water pressure to make it up the hill since the houses/hotels below us are using it for their garden ...

Hi Stephan,

how are you? - I hope you're fine! - What's about your journey? - And what's about your truck?

Hi Christian,

The whole move went reasonably well. First months been very busy with painting this house, finding/buying furniture, sorting out the garden so the cats could go outside and not to forget the hassle getting sorting out all the legal paperwork involved with healthcare, insurance, registration etc.

Only got around to unboxing the trucks a couple of months ago. But have lost my momentum for the moment to continue working on them. The 6x6 survived the trip very well, the 8x8 suffered some minor mishap and will need a new front fender under the cabin. I also succeeded in burning the gear shift servo due to accidentally erasing both Commander and CM-5000 unit in the truck. (don't ask)

Also in my stupidity I left behind more tools than I thought. Still replacing that stuff.

So eventually this thread will be continued. :-)

Hi Stephan, glad to hear the family made the move safely. The trucks can always be repaired. Are the cats settling in? Hope to see you back it soon.

Hi Stephan,

sounds good. Nice that you arrived well in Europe. Welcome!

You will surely find motivation again soon and finish your models. And now you have a big advantage: ScaleART is much closer and you can easily get spare parts. ;-)

All the best! - I am looking forward to the continuation of your report.
