Probably the most extensive ED TR ever

Hi, All - Back in the fall I posted a one-page preview of my summer 2018 M2 Euro delivery trip. Finally I've got the whole thing finished. I'm probably not exaggerating to say that this is probably the most extensive accounting of a Euro Delivery trip that there is. I'm calling it "GerM2ny 2018: The Pickup".



There's a 17-page trip report and a 1.5 hour movie. Enter if you dare....

Wow great write up, super extensive. I haven't finished reading it all yet but what were your favorite parts of the trip?

1. Driving through the Italian pre-alps, staying in mountain rifugios along the way.

2. The best of the swiss high passes [that we visited] (Passo San Bernardino, Splugenpass, Umbrailpass)

3. Visiting and driving on the Nordschleife (Nurburgring)

Amazing job! I showed my friend the teaser video and he is super impressed. He dabbles in photography/videography, so he understands how much time and effort was put into this.

Yep - it was indeed a fair bit of work. Some of the invididual roadside sessions took hours. Doesn't seem like it in the video, but I guess that's probably a sign that I edited it properly.

Wow...this is awesome! Seriously this is probably the best ED Journal I've ever seen. I'm only about half of the way through. Look forward to reading through the rest later tonight.
