PostSubject: British 4x4 convoy to Abenteuer & Allrad Show 18-23 June 2014, Bad Kissingen, Germany   Tue Oct 22, 2013 10:57 pm

I have decided to coordinate a convoy of 4x4 vehicles to the Abenteuer & Allrad (Adventure Wheel) Show 2014, Bad Kissingen, Germany. We've been talking about it for a while now, so let's do it!

Dates: Wednesday 18th to Monday 23rd June 2014.

Travel arrangements: "A ferry" ... although haven't worked out the best one yet! "A route" - most direct? Again, those interested will work a route out later.

Register your interest within this thread, over to you. cheers1

We'd be up for that.  Got a pretty direct route and camp sites we used on our last run over there that would work if you allow two or three days to get there.  No point rushing when the German beer and wine is so cheap cheers1
We use Dover- Dunkirk P&O, was only £90 return.

Was thinking of a little quicker than 2-3 days to get there, then again we can go over 40mph! Wink

Hey, hare and the tortoise comes to mind Laughing 

We will probably go out on the Sunday and make a bit of a holiday out of it, 1200 mile round trip in the truck becomes an expensive weekend.

Mmmmm, fair enough. Besides, your fridge can hold more ice cold beers than mine. Speed isn't always the everything. See you there mate. cheers1

mmm. That's a thought. Either way planning to make the trip and in convoy might be an idea?

I do have 3 days to get there booked off work but..........

Just a quick message for Twende. As you have made the trip before could you suggest routes to take and campsites that you would recommend (or not recommend)? Any idea's appreciated adore 

Many thanks, Dave.

Just join up with Twende Dave, that way you won't need to know about routes - plus of course we'll have the makings of two convoys heading over there. We'll reserve a couple of pitches alongside us, so when you arrive the beer will be cold, the tea hot; simples!

Another option too. And it's not even 2014.

Perhaps I should alter the dates of the convoy to Bad Kissingen - or list two convoys even?

www.4x4calendar.co.uk/show.php?y=2014&m=6

You'll notice I've given us time to recuperate after Stratford before tackling Germany? A cunning plan! cheers

Seems like a couple of guys from the Land Cruiser Owners' Club are interested in joining our little convoy  ... or two. It's building! thumbsup

If anyone wants to join the 80kph Convoy Sleep  I'll probably be catching the ferry Dover-Dunkirk on Sunday morning 15th June.  First stop in Grimbergen, camp site north of Brussels (just off the ring) Monday on to Dillengurg, another camp site located in a Pine forest just off the Autobahn then on the BK site on the Tuesday.  Can stretch it out and have another stop on route if preferred.
It's great to get there early and watch all the kit coming in, also, if the weather is better next year, it's great to walk around the site.

So Tom, shall we rope out a section for the 200kph convoy Twisted Evil

Just a thought Tom, this doesn't clash with the HUBB does it ?
I seem to remember you having to fly off this year because you had double booked

Yes I thought that was the case, is Tom not having a stand at the HUBB this year ?

I must admit a German trip does appeal to me, I think June is filling up fast though Land Rover live
7th / 8th my ex business partners Stag do 13th till 15th then I could possible do Bad Kiss leaving on the 16th till the 23rd then back to france for the Le Mans classic 2nd of July.

Well thats June sorted just need to sort out the rest of the year now Very Happy

I dunno, you can lead a horse to water! There's a certain place where you'll see at a glance what's going on - http://www.4x4calendar.co.uk/show.php?y=2014&m=6 cheers 

Yes, unfortunately both HUBB and Bad Kissingen have moved their dates on by a couple of weeks from end of May to the very same weekend in June, so yet again they clash. Me, I'm off to Germany, so book that space Twende!

I am hoping to have a presence at HUBB for ADVENTURE OVERLAND, we'll know for sure early in the New Year.

Hi Guys.

Just wondering if anyone has made any further plans regarding the A & A show be it as a group or indepandant travelling. I'm hoping to begin planning routes, places to stop etc over the festive period whilst I have time on my hands.

Unimogs are good, but like all 4x4's, keeping them light is the key. Either that of have a dirty great big orange 'n' black M.A.N on call at all times!  cheers

www.youtube.com/watch?v=-HFuWJ7guVg

Keep watching this vid. At 4 mins the action goes a bit quite, but after 5 mins it picks up again. All sorts of 4x4 get stuck, it's only that brutal-looking yellow 6x6 that looks at ease in the mud. As for the G-Wagen right at the end, the speed he was going meant that whatever was around that righthand turn, he was sure to hit ... the yellow 6x6???
