City/Town: Müllhaus (France)
Event Type: Other
Meeting Point: the next KFC in France

Alright folks, seeing that we haven't had a "The Quest for a 6-Piece (KFC)" so far and our arteries weren't all that clogged up from all that food we gobbled down during the recent festivities, I suggest that we head over to France and grab us a bucket (or 2) of the noble poultry.

The same rules as before apply (no farting etc.)

We'll meet up 12:30ish in front of Starbucks (right by the trainstation) in Basel.

-LIB

ps: Please indicate whether you have a vehicle at your disposal and how many people can fit in it (comfortably).

Since it's just a 30min ride to the promised land, can I squeeze in the back of your car Castro..like that everyone is happy and you will be able to enjoy my company.

Cant you meet Joey somewhere else? Another alternative solution is for you to speak to basher and ask him to go on the next trip. The original plan was for you and ishaka to come with me anyways. Now I need to take a dump.
I don't mind, we drive an SUV also, the other 2 on the back seat are not larger then life so sure we can fit in a 3rd person.

If you don't mind sitting beside Mirfield..

Only need to find out where to pick you up,or you find your way by train to Frick.

For Mirfield and possibly The Colonel, we can meet closer also,we can meet at Pratteln or Muttenz Banhof , as long as it has an entrance/exit to the highway you are fine,saves you the drive to Frick.

We pass by those towns anyay,no problem swinging by and collect you there..

If LIB wants to ride with Castro, leaves me with a free seat so Peg A or JustRose,feel free to tag along..

You're great!

It's a Golf and there's not a lot of space in the back.
No SUV here...

Re: The Quest for a 6-Piece (KFC) VI

Hey Zymogen, so how about 3 tiny people in the backseat of your car? We promise to play nice!

It's not that we don't want to take our car, but it still has Romanian plates and for some reason I am a bit suspicious about crossing the border, I hear they check for KFC chicken all the time :P. Hopefully there'll be new plates in March but by then the KFC adventure will be over

If Zymogen takes us, that we're no longer maybes, but YESs

Re: The Quest for a 6-Piece (KFC) VI

Can everyone please update their RSVP status so that there is no more confusion on who have empty spots and who is going with who? I think summerrain summed it up best.

ChatdeChocolat - All spots seemed filled for now. Hang in there. May be someone will show up who is hungry for some KFC and has a car.

p.s. I don't think you should have a problem with your Romanian plates as long as you have your Resident Permits on you to show at the border and nothing to hide in your car. You should have no reasons to worry about anything.

But what am I to do with all the coke and dead bodies?! Plus, I expect to come back with 15 buckets of KFC, think it would raise any suspicion?

Eh?? We have Swiss plates and we were checked. Only once out of the many runs we made across that border. No biggie, the officer just laughed and waved us on, when I said I had nothing to declare except that bucket.

How many dead bodies stuffed with drugs can you fit in a Micra?

No Prob, adjusted, 1 spot left leaving from Frick or collection in Pratteln (Bahnhof) for the people who are afraid to leave Basel ground.

Mirfield, let me know if you come to Frick or if we need to pick you up in Pratteln..

Justrose and Peg A - first come first serve..

..yeah but it's romanian tags and they'll think that they just came from Romania. When they chech, the probably think the documents are illegal...and finally, when they find out that the documents are legal the think you smuggled something...thus, I agree with chococat.

Re: The Quest for a 6-Piece (KFC) VI

Realistically speaking, the Basel party should arrive at 13:30 (taking into account latecomers etc..). What would be great is if whoever gets their first, reserves us a table or two since the Mulhouse KFC is always heaving.. more so on a Sunday lunchtime.

Er, I dont see anything wrong with having a bucket of chicken in the car, as long as you have all your documents ready? At most, you get pulled to the side, and have your boot checked. It really doesnt take more than 5 minutes. This dodgy-looking Asian who has been checked before says.

Choc, you have documents right?

We will aim to arrive at 13:30 then! I'll buy some hotwings, and throw it to distract anyone who tries to sit at our table. Just to distract them, mind you.
