Re: QUEST for a 6-Piece (KFC) VII

I may potentially be able to get a 7 seater from a friend, in which case me, wife, econo, angie, husband, cmirsky +1 could all come

It would be a tight squeeze in a opel Zafira but it wouldn't be a long drive!

Re: QUEST for a 6-Piece (KFC) VII

I dunno what's going on BUT *big hugs* to Joey as well.



And... if it's not too much to ask, perhaps I could meet up with some of ya'll AFTER you're back from KFC and if you could be persuaded to bring some back for me, I could be persuaded to show up with some dessert?

Re: QUEST for a 6-Piece (KFC) VII

The quickest solution is all the people pitch in to hire a van (Ford C-Max 7 Seater) from mobility.ch. I just did the math and for about 3 hours and 158 kilometers (neuchatel to mulhouse) it should cost around 170 CHF in rental and about 30 CHF in Diesel.

Split amongst 7 people who don't have a ride yet (as described by Porsch) it would work out 30 per person. It may be an expensive option just to eat KFC but an option never the less.

Other alternative is a train to Mulhouse from your respective locations. I'd be more than happy to drop my passengers to KFC and pick some of you up from the Mulhouse Train Station. If someone else wants to bring another car ~ We can pick all 7 people up from the Mulhouse station in go.

Re: QUEST for a 6-Piece (KFC) VII

p.s. not to forget if I pick people up from the train station in mulhouse and bring them to KFC it's obvious that I will also drop them back to the station when we are done.

It would be less than that actually.

A click and drive would be 70CHF for 3 hours + an extra 19CHF for one hour.

We could do the same and pick them up there too...

Ha ben là! I am not sure we can do that as well.....

Of course we will bring them back.... maybe they will want to walk to spend all the greasy food they will eat!

Re: QUEST for a 6-Piece (KFC) VII

Sounds good Porcshy. Let me know how I can help. My earlier offer is still open for folks who would like to take me up on it.

I would hate to see so many people unable to make it and you can't really blame Joey if he has an emergency and CC for being sick.

Re: QUEST for a 6-Piece (KFC) VII

Sorry I just realised you wrote Neuchatel to Mullhous. I would have to bring it back as well then. It would be quite expensive in that case.

I'd say 6 to 7 hours with click and drive and it would cost about 150chf. 20chf each.

Remember diesel is included in the price.

Re: QUEST for a 6-Piece (KFC) VII

I'm desperately trying to shake one of the worst colds I've ever had (I can't remember being ill for 4 days in a row ever before!). Just had porridge, about to have a hot bath.

Hopefully I'll be OK tomorrow, but I'll post again to let people know. I don't feel "ill" as such, but dizzy and a bit shivvery so my body is obviously trying to fight something.
