Graceland

Graceland

Zondag (27 juli) is de definitieve datum van point of no return geworden. Met de motor naar Frankfurt. Voorbij Bonn richting Rijn om toch even gedag te zeggen bij een ’steunpunt’. Op de terugweg van Faak twee jaar geleden kwamen Jan en ik daar met onze Liberators op zoek naar stroom om mijn accu op te laden en een plekje voor de tenten. ’s-Avonds koffie, bier, water en veel kletspraat en de volgende ochtend wederom koffie maar nu ook tosti’s, helemaal top.

Vlak na de afslag om bij het steunpunt te komen slaat het weer echter om, dikke regen en heftig onweer. Bij een hotel-restaurant aan het einde van de afslag gegeten en uiteindelijk geslapen. In de avond rij ik binnendoor door dichte bossen toch nog naar m’n Nederlandse-kennissen-aan-de-Rijn. M’n kaartje met website adres afgegeven, koffie en uiteraard een praatje.

Maandagmorgen word ik vroeg wakker met de radio, klaar wakker met het nieuws, de Lufthansa gaat vandaag in staking, voor het eerst in zoveel jaren. Vooral op Frankfurt (!) wordt vertraging verwacht voor passagiers en luchtvracht. Had ik daar vorige al iets van gehoord maar niet willen horen? Affijn doorduwen maar. Het is prachtig weer als ik de Lib voor de hoofdingang van de DHL in het gras parkeer om nog even schoon te maken. Dal lukt aardig met schijfremreiniger. De motortransport afdeling (Katja -prachtige tattoos en Michael -lange staart) heeft me binnen geen tijd gespot en komen vriendelijk informeren over het waarom ik dat doe voor de hoofdingang en pal achter -maar niet gezien- verboden het gras te betreden. Ach ja, dat was dus niet handig maar verder geen punt. In een enorme loods proberen we van een gebruikt krat (voor het transport van een Flying Merkel uit 1911 = zeer, zeer zeldzame Amerikaanse motorfiets) een Liberator krat te maken maar dat past net niet. Dan maar een standaard alu-krat dat bestaat uit een vloer, haken voor spanbanden, dik plastic over de hele motor en afwerken met veel laagejs dunne folie. En passant begrijp ik waarom de Lib niet naar Fairbanks kan, daarvoor is die te lang, past net niet in de standaard maten van het kleinere type vliegtuig dat ze voor die bestemmnig gebruiken. Daarom gaat de motor dus naar Anchorage, maar de lucky bastard vliegt via Memphis, de bestuurder aanstaande zaterdag via Minneapolis maar de Lib vliegt woensdag via Elvis’ hometown. Vliegtuig doet vast en zeker een rondje boven Graceland …
