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.

Mies, CH -to- Mulhouse, FR = 270 km.

this is getting to be almost worth my while to drive up to KFC just to see the finish of this show.

I am getting confused...

Is it home delivery of chicken, lesbo, whores, homo? So many things have been discussed...

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

This is the route I'm taking to Basel and I'm happy to pick someone up on the way. I would drive into Basel - with a navigator knowing his/her way driving downtown.

Anyway, has it worked before to coordinate 5-6 cars at the SBB and drive convoy to KFC? I doubt that we all manage to arrive in a 5 minute timeframe and standing there for 15-25 minutes waiting for the last car might not be appreciated by the kfc ignorant authorities.

I'd second Joey suggestion to meet at a gas station or parking lot somewhere next to the highway if we want to drive together. It would make the trip a more relaxing one (at least for me).

Sorry for this more serious post...

I fear it wouldn't make it back in one piece even if we tried really hard to resist.

I'm in Basel not Zürich so can't help anyway I'm afraid.

Agreed, it is almost impossible to meet there with the buses, taxis, etc.

We could meet at the other train station in Kleinbasel where they do have a big parking area.

Seeing as you're passing Wettsteinplatz maybe you could pick up Adrian from there? Would that be ok? It's on your planned route. I'm sure if you ask him, you can just get Porsch to fling the door open as you pass Adrian will leap into the moving car

I suggest we ask Castro. He is the Modly one and probably knows the perfect place for people to wait that don't go to the SBB. There is a bit of parking we normally use near the Starbucks at the station and we haven't had a problem before. Mind you I don't think it's ever been so many cars

Paging Castro......

Adrian is going to be the LiB replacement till the two are united again.

Looks like 6 cars:

Stig - mirfield and Angela (0 space) SBB to meeting point
Nil - me and mini mimi (0 space) Basel then to meeting point
Joey - Morrigana and Standardgirl (1 space) Frick then to meeting point
Castro - Begga and LiB (no space) SBB to meeting point
Zymogen - Porsch and missus (1 space) Vaud to meeting point (maybe grabbing Adrian? - more likely this would be Porsch though)
Joeshelton - Ishaka and Basher (1 space) Zürich to meeting point

Not allocated to a specific car - AdrianLondon (Zymogen?) and Rbansal

So if Joey, Nil, Zymogen and JoeShelton go to Castro's yet to be communicated meeting point, there would only be Stig and Castro driving to SBB to pick people up.

Ideally, we want a garage or something on the way to Mulhouse for everyone to congregate....

It would be great if Castro knows a meeting point that is easily accessible for cars AND public transportation - is there a place like that in Basel?
