Official Courage (voyage EB8-40-COG) thread - departs Bremerhaven 9/30

Well I missed the Fedora, but am booked on the Courage. Expected arrival date is 10/13. At that point it will only be about 30 miles from me....waiting.....waiting.....waiting

Have Courage!

My CA called me and said a booking had appeared on his computer. He was pretty surprised when I named the ship and the dates, but then I have everyone here to thank for the necessary links such as this one:

http://schedule.2wglobal.com/AppTrac...trackType=Auto

Just put in your vin# and it will tell you whether you're booked and on what vessel.

I am also on the Courage. Having taken her out on the road for 2 weeks in Europe, driving my truck in the states is driving me insane.

Yeah, I'm trying to lay low and avoid cops as my inspection and failed-inspection stickers are now expired. I even just had to have a garage remove the radiator thermostat and hard wire the fan to keep it from overheating. My 1 can't get here quickly enough.

I'm also on the Courage! Anxiously awaiting my souvenir from my honeymoon a few weeks ago...

Anyone know if it really takes 7-14 days to get to the dealer??

Should be pulling up to the dock in NJ tomorrow. My dealer says it could take at least a week to get ED cars through customs. It's not too predictable. Keep the fingers crossed. I want my baby before Holloween.

2 weeks sounds like a "don't yell at me because its taking too long, but if its early, you'll have my baby" estimate

I predict 24-48hrs processing and then its trucked to your dealer.

The baby is off the boat and back on the dealer tracking system. Now we just have to get through customs (ED). Courage left NJ today.
and the weather is so great right now - come on, come on, come on
