WotW#101 day 5
One guest stays always for five nights, and that is Eric Baas. He came to our “Marches Shelter” first in July 2006, when the WOTW #090 was cancelled after the first day: extreme heat and 2 deaths. Here an impression of his last breakfast with us, before picking up his wife Sandra @ Geldermalsen and going home to Ede.

God, this may be my last Four Days Marches. Because Boss is doomed to die. But today I fight, and tomorrow I shall fight, and the day after tomorrow I shall fight too. I can not win the match, but I’m sure to extend the playing time. And maybe lose, lose with the shooting of penalties. Help me with this fight against that horrible pancreas cancer.
THE GUESTS ALWAYS BRING A GIFT FOR THE HOSTS. ERIC: FROM T-SHIRTS TO HAND ENGRAVED WATER GLASSES; DICK: CHEESE SPECIALITIES FROM THE BEEMSTER AND ED WHINE.
