Quite the understatement! :shock:

Where's the 480 graffiti? What it done specifically for the tour?

I feel we need to up our tour game now!

I would love to have a 480 get together in June 2024 Jeff - maybe near Born?

Easy to get to from Belgium, France and Germany and of course the Netherlands and Luxembourg. Not quite so easy from the UK, but certainly possible. I have already drafted some ideas out if the idea is of interest.

Yes - the 480 graffiti is amazing!

Yes, the grafiti was sprayed especially for the meeting. This is the legendary music club Hyde Park in Osnabrück. In the meantime, the 480 is certainly already sprayed over. The club is run by friends of mine and was a wild location for a stopover at our 480 meeting.
But I had to pay the grafiti artist for the small job. It was worth it to hava a nice Photo spot.
