At least it will be clean when you get it! It's going to be fun to watch you open the crate and take it out!

It had to be steam cleaned by a certified steam cleaner, and the crate had to be made of heat treated wood, to
satisfy Canada Customs. Claus, the guy I bought it from, was willing to pressure wash and crate it for me, but that was'nt
good enough.
These services provided by the freight forwarding company, where all quoted ahead of time, so I've already come to
grips with that.


Now you have to hire a Danish translator until Elf learns to speak English. LOL

Just to help Will, I decided to quick translate the most common things I say to my tractors (the PG versions)

Turn Left: drej til venstre
Turn Right: drej til horjre
Go: ga
Stop: stoppe
Another flat tire? Why? : andet fladt daek? hvorfor?
Why won't you start, you miserable son of a gun? : Hvorfor vil du ikke starte, du miseable son af en pistol?

I suggest flash cards, as proper pronunciation may be difficult.
Hopefully, you won't need the last one up there, but just in case here's one more that kind of goes with it.

hvem er din far?

Whatever wood the crate is made from, you need to build something from it for "Massey Hall". :thumbs:

But actually, Elf was born and raised in Germany.
So this stuff should work.

Stop-Halt
forward-Videresend (which is wrong. That's what google translator can do. "Videresend" means forward, as one would
do with an email. Resend.)

See how much fun this can be.

Good thing they cleaned it. It would be terrible to get some Norwegian grease on the floor

Well you'll have to fix Elf a big mess of Bratwurst Stewed with Sauerkraut.

And of course some good German Bier.
