BRUZER's SWISS Adventure

As some of you know, I have taken an assignment in Switzerland - this leaves me FJ less for the time I'm there
I thought I'd share some pictures (and possibly some stories) of my time there

So here goes:
The Car the company gave me to drive while I'm there (brand spankin new) - only 32km when I got it
Then some of the town we are close to

Questions welcome:

Re: BRUZER's SWISS Adventure

Nice! Looking forward to keeping up on your story.

Go ahead, skin it! Skin that smoke wagon and see what happens...

I'll ride in on a sunny day, Sing you a song, steal your heart away Like a cowboy Hang my hat like I'm here for awhile Kick off my boots and drive you wild Like a cowboy Well baby you know I can't stay long You wake up, I'll be gone Until then I'll hold on Like a cowboy.

Re: BRUZER's SWISS Adventure

You got an assignment in Switzerland? Wow did you win the lottery.
I can remember as a kid (in the 60's) when my Dad was stationed (NATO) in Germany and then Belgium we would spend every Christmas in Berchtesgaden. To me back then it seemed the US owned Europe. The US run school I went to would send the entire school to Ski school for 2 weeks every year. Oh man and being a Boy Scout in Europe back the was amazing, it seemed that the Army ran the Boy Scouts and the sky was the limit.
Sorry don't mean to hijack your thread it just that your pic's being back many happy memories. Enjoy every minute, sorry you couldn't bring the FJ, most likely there isn't much off-roading around there anyway.

Re: BRUZER's SWISS Adventure

YUP @Papa Dragon , I do feel like I won the lottery - and the work will be long days, but will get to run a little on weekends. It has been cold, snowy and foggy
The fog should lift I'm told around March

Here are a few more:

Re: BRUZER's SWISS Adventure

Excellent adventure. Keep us posted.

I rented the same car last year. I believe 3 or 4 cylinder turbo diesel
When I picked it up I thought this is gonna suck, I was very wrong.
I would own one here in the states if I could. ~50 mpg

Is your 'better half' with you? And have you seen any cheese factories yet?

Good for you on your assignment! :
