Cool Go see GP race at Assen?

On June 28th and 29th FIM GP races @ Assen Holland - it's about an 1hour north of Amsterdam.

I _reallly_ want to see a GP race in person this year what with Rossi, Bayliss, Hayden, Edwards... you get the point... this is going to be one of those seasons like the old Bulls and Jordan, and it'll be neat to say you were there in a few years.

Anyway - I've thrown this out before 1/2 kidding but now I'm thinking why the hell not, let's fly into Amsterdam, stay there, and take the train to the races? I've been to Europe and Amsterdam many times so if you're scared all the Dutch speak english better than most Americans do and I have a vague idea of what's what over there...

Some thoughts: it can take a few months to get a passport, airfare can be had for ~500$, hotel will be between $10-100$ depending on what you want, and, oh, Amsterdam is even more fun than you've heard

well, the only GP race is at the end of June and I'd like to do both... but I can always think of a reason to take a vacation

Almost every time I've been there it's been with a group of guys and girls, it's actually more fun that way... but good god that place is off the hook! I could tell stories but not on the internet

hmmm sounds interesting, don't have enough vac. days. would mean not going to Laguna this year. will have to think about it.

HHmmm Desmosedici + RS.3


WSB is ther Sep 6+7 probably not worth going there for that. but at least it gives a reason to go + something to do

I'm supposed to be there in May on my way to Switzerland for biz/play, although I'd need to take Grace and Kat. I'm not to sure I want to put Kat through all the travel. (Read, I don't want to be stuck next to a crying baby for 5+ hours on a plane. Even if the trip is basically free.) On the plus side, I've got biz buddies living there that are really into showing me the "better" parts of town. I think local knowledge is a big plusl. Unfortunately, we know that won't happen with wife and child in tow. Decisions Decisions. If I do go in May there is no way I'll be back in June.

Now, if I blow off May do I go and play with the boys in June?

There is nothing firm, nothing balanced, nothing durable in all the universe. Nothing remains in its original state, each day, each hour, each moment, there is change. Change is the essence of life. Embrace change as you do life. To fight change is to live in the past.
