Is anyone planning on going to the Abenteuer & Allrad (Adventure Wheel) Show, Germany 30 May-02 June 2013? Billed as the biggest off-road show in Europe, it’s a claim that can’t be denied … it’s BIG!!! See www.abenteuer-allrad.de
The English version can be found by clicking the ‘Besucher’ tab in the menu, then ‘For Foreign Visitors’.
I ask because I intend attending myself. However, there is a problem. This is also the weekend of the HUBB UK event at Donington, Leicestershire ( www.horizonsunlimited.com/events/hubbuk
) where I have a promotional pitch for my ADVENTURE OVERLAND show at Stratford Racecourse, Warwickshire in September– www.adventureoverlandshow.com.
I intend spending Thursday at Donington, then, leaving the stand in the capable hands of friends, I will fly out from East Midlands airport on Fri 31 May to Frankfurt, collect a hire car, then on to the show. I shall return Mon 03 June to collect my marquee from HUBB UK. Back in June this year I flew over and hired a car, it worked out fine. I only had hand luggage which contained a lightweight tent, sleeping bag, change of clothes and toiletries!So ... does anybody fancy joining me? We can share the cost of the hire car/fuel.
The return flights cost £96 incl. taxes.
