Hi Guys.

Just wondering if anyone has made any further plans regarding the A & A show be it as a group or independent travelling. I'm hoping to begin planning routes, places to stop etc over the festive period whilst I have time on my hands.
Dave.
Dave - it might be a good idea to let us know what you've planned, that way others may be able to fit in with you. Me, just for now I'm going to step back and see what's going on, as I may be in advance of all of you.

There is a cunning plan being formulated whereby myself and Ralf (The German guy who owns Kenekke - Scandinavian outdoor clothing - some of you on here already know him) will book a large trade pitch at Bad Kissingen under the title "UK 4x4 Scene".

Here I can advertise ADVENTURE OVERLAND, whilst for the rest of the stand we can sub out segments to various 4x4 traders from the UK so they can also promote their products/services. This way we'll have an HQ in the trade area throughout the show for any Brits attending ... in other words a cold one or a cuppa at all times!!!

As it isn't cheap to book a trade stand there, hopefully we can get a decent price for a large chunk of real estate, that way we can in turn sub it out at a reasonable price. Working on it, keep you posted!

Here's my route for the 80kph convoy, can't find an emoticon for a snail  :shock: 

https://maps.google.com/maps?q=

As mentioned before, I'll probably leave on the Sunday morning, stopping Sunday and Monday night on route in campsites I've used before.

Normally use P&O Dover> Dunkirk.  About £85 return for my truck (7.5 metre length)

PostSubject: Trade Stand/Route   Sun Dec 29, 2013 10:19 am

Hi Tom. Great idea about the trade stand if there is enough interest in traders attending.

Also regarding my route, it's looking like Stratford - upon - Avon to Brussels area Monday. Brussels to Frankfert area Tuesday & Frankfert area to Bad Kissingen Wednesday. Probably using Eurotunnel as I have a ticket for £1. I think we will B&B or hotel for the driving days & camp at BK.
Nothing finalized or booked but also looking at a different return route.
Will update as I finalize things.

Hi. I have planned a route but it is subject to change... We (me & wife) will leave Stratford on Monday 16th June and arrive in Bad Kissingen on Wednesday 18th June. I will return by a slightly different route as using different accomodation. The plan is to B&B/hotel it en route & on return route with camping at BK.

I will use Eurotunnel for the crossing but this is yet to be booked.

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


twende have you booked your ferry yet.. scratching chin

Hiya Tuggy, not booked yet but will be in the next couple of weeks. Best to book in advance as it will be cheaper. if you want to get an idea of the ferry costs just check out DFDS ferries Dover Dunkirk.

I'll get back to you with outward dates but looks like it will be around midday on Sunday 15th. Just got to confirm I can book dates off work.

I normally try and book the DFDS 01.30 or 02.30 crossing managed to get a £17.50 each way last year.
With the crossing time and the extra hour I normally have a big greasy fry up on the boat then that sets me up for a good few hours driving once across  thumbsup

I take it you are talking of booking the ferry & not the actual show? It is my understanding the show campsite cannot be booked? Is that correct?

Yes Dave, campsite is paid for as you get there, believe it or not, if you pay for six days and leave early the reimberse you. The tickets for the show can be bought on the day, single day or for the whole weekend.

Not sure about the others but I was just talking ferries.
I'm not doing the Bad Kiss show but will be at the HUBBUK with some other forum members looking after the AO2014 and forum stand. Trying to convince the travel bike community they ought to buy a 4x4 and strike out across the deserts and wastes of North Africa.

£60 that's gone up loads since last year then the dearest crossing I did last year was £72 return and that was Dieppe to Newhaven.

£49 each way for mine, £44 if before 10am.  Still looking at midday crossing cos the first stop for me is Brussels so no rush.  Just noticed some of the return slots on the following Sunday are sold out!  Might have to extend to the Monday  cheers
