Catch-22 trip 2016: North ItalyBully - Aug. 08, 2016 at 16:32 EET
Instead of the previously planned Scotland and Wales trip we chose north Italy as our destination and so Acolyte, Bully and merlin1991 mett at the Milano airport. After exploring Parma, Bologna, Pisa, San Marino, Como and south Switzerland the ultimate view was found in Stelvio Pass over 2700 meters above sea level, poor Golf. This time we fell a bit short from last years record and did only 1950km and 6 border crossings.
Was again a really great trip and next year is sure to follow. Possibly we will then do the Scotland and Wales.
The Wedding and Other NewsBully - Apr. 25, 2016 at 15:26 EET
In March SpOOky got married! Acolyte, Bully, jpma, merlin1991 and SmuRf from Catch-22 were there to witness the happy event. It was a beatifull service and we wish the newlyweds a lifetime of happiness. Was also great to meet some old old friends like Aaron, Rachael and Caligula from Ghost Recon. After the wedding Mrs SpOOky was brought to Finland to enjoy from a proper sauna and cabin life.
Really big thanks to people who offered not only rides to but also a place to stay for us, including a full English breakfast!
In other news, another member had son born earlier this year. Congratulations!
Trip 2016 planning has started. Unlike what was previously discussed the trip will not take place in Wales or Scotland, but instead somewhere warm. Once a year of UK weather is enough.
Catch-22 trip 2015: Rhone-Alpes and AlsaceBully - Aug. 19, 2015 at 17:25 EET
This year it was the time for France to meet the beer drinking squad of Catch-22. Invasion started from Zurich in Switzerland where Acolyte, Bully and merlin1991 rented Al (the trusty Volvo) and drove off to France. Before us, Al had only done 2500km, which where almost doubled. 3 countries, 8 border crossings, 2036km in distance, over 2000 meters in height, 200km/h top speed on autobahn, curly mountain roads on Alps, 3 smelly guys and Bully farting are just the highlights of what Al had to deal with. He served us well.
We had great time and next year is sure to happen. Traveling Scotland and Wales in July and hopefully meeting our UK friends was discussed. And sure anyone else too who wants to come.
Cabin Trip Finland - Episode IIIBully - Mar. 26, 2015 at 16:42 EET
Who would have believed. For the 3rd year in a row, SpOOky came to Finland to enjoy Sauna. This time he again had SmuRf with him so SmuRf too got to enjoy ice swimming. Somehow Acolyte managed not to broke anything, except him self and even Mr Total-Destruction aka Yökiitäjä did not destroy everything he touched. Irritated from this Dragoon decided to display his powers and pulled the starter motor apart from the forest machine. There was also Bully running, jpma singing and as a special starring guest LolGaara at the cabin.
Everybody had fun and at the time of departure it was already agreed that we meet next year! Where, was not decided...
Summer 2014Bully - Sep. 25, 2014 at 13:18 EET
This year the Catch-22 trip was to Sicily in Italy. Acolyte, Bully, merlin1991 and Yokiitaja mett at Catania airport and drove around Sicily for more than 1400 kilometers with Luigi (Fiat 500L). People enjoyed the trip a lot and also Birra Moretti turned out to be better than expected. Next year was already discussed and it seems that the 6 years old tradition will continue in the future as well.
For 2015 there are already plans for yet another cabin trip. That would already be the part III for conventions in Finland.
