Our trunk monkey - Kitty Ket

We've arrived!  We found a rest area/gas station right before the German border which had the sign so we could all go take photos with it! :D We decided to let Ket out of the trunk to stretch his legs while getting gas and then it was off to Dusseldorf we would go! 

We took a number of photos, freezing our behinds off alongside the road, and then hurried back in the car.  Uh oh though...we were now in Germany!  That means speed demon Brett takes over since there is no speed limit on the autobahn!  OMG!!  I had to get a pic of his crazy face and his speed on the car. 

And then it was time to freak all of us out....James was prepared to drive.  Eeeek! I told Brett to stay up front and I would hop in back with the girls.  He was so quiet, we all kinda forgot Kitty Ket was back there! LOL.  James drove for a bit, got up to 100 mph and turned it back over to the Brett Brett, fearless navigator! 

It seemed like no time and we were in Dusseldorf!  Had the boys drop us girls off at the train station so we could go meet everyone while they found a parking lot that didn't close at 11pm.......

was Brett yelling like he did on your road trip around Arizona? I still find that funny!

Oh yea...I remembered that there's no speed limit when I was on my trip from England to Cologne, Germany! 100m/h = 160 km/h...at that time, my friend was driving around 180-200km/h (~120m/h) with his Mazda Miata 5.
