    My road trips are always with lots of unexpected things.
    First I Drove to my college 'defender' but the roads where so slippery that i spin 3 times around and ended as a Phantom driver at 10 cm of the traffic separator.Okay no damage switched cars driving with defender to our destination at some point it so slippery that his car didn't get up the hill, the police had to push us up :d.Then we stopped at our closed point to the destination we had a gps position somewhere in the Forrest. we dropped our car and started on foot with a very old and worthless gps and tried to find our destination.After 3,5 hours walking in the forest with 30 cm snow we finally found what we where looking for 'the tunnel of Damocles'. After driving so far and walking so long it was a bit disappointed to see that everything already was melted..Build in 1914 it's 1550 meters long and cost 700.000 € what was a lot in that time.It was the biggest train tunnel in Belgium in that time.Closed in 1969,The tunnel is very dangerous as big rocks fall dawn in the winter there are big Damocles ice pins hanging on the ceiling. I was just to late but I'm planning to go back when it freeze a bit more.After that we droved back home when suddenly a very big dog runs alone on the road. I think someone left it there we decided to take him with us to the nearest police building.After the first 10 sec the dog already jumped in front of the car so we let him go again and then there stopped a car behind us who thought we where getting rid of the dog.After explaining he decided to take it with him to bring him at the police.
