Hanno, you wrote you're no story teller, you just take pictures and HOPE PEOPLE LIKE THEM ??? Well, 'like" is an understatement. Your pics are like ... how can I say ? Dutch coasterporn. And I love it ! More seriously though. I'm so glad you also took part to my first trip 2 years ago. For the nice dude you are, of course ! but also because my computer crashed after the trip and I lost absolutely ALL my pictures of East Coast. Fortunately, there was the photo DVD, but as I had lost all "personal" pictures with me on them, thanks to your website, I could find pictures of me on nearly all the good coasters and with all the great people who contributed to my first trip being a blast.

As always, a huge thank you Hanno! Your pictures are always wonderful, and you are sneaky. You get truly candid shots of people on the trips. I always love seeing your reports as they bring me back to the trip.
