FYI, still alive.

We managed to do the Großglockner, Stelvio, Gotthard, and Susten passes without freaking out the family too much. Got them all with the GoPro on 4K. We got very lucky with weather. The only thing we had to scrap was a drive through the Dolomites due to clouds & rain.

I’ll post picks as soon as I can.

Still loving the color. Trip is surprisingly on track. Just about at 1k miles now as we just got to the Black Forest. Expect to have the 1200-mile service on Thursday and then will be free to go all-out for the last couple of days including a 150+ mile drive in mostly unrestricted autobahn to to Neueschwanstein. Car is no Boxster or Miata but it it feels surprisingly agile for carrying the whole family and a trunk packed with luggage.

Sounds awesome. Looking forward to hearing more when you have the time.

And... Don't freak out the family on the autobahn. I remember when I was in Germany in 2014, we had some nice drives on the unrestricted roads. Everything was going good when Patty 'woke up' and asked how fast I was driving. I told her. I shouldn't have. LOL.
