Woo hoo...I'm first.

I really enjoyed the Eifel trip in 2010. Nice roads, awesome accomodation (said the big spoon), fantastic food and a great bunch of people.

While it is a bit further to get to than last time the additional lure of mountain roads might will no doubt make me sign up very soon.

Dirt Bike Dave and I are Hull to Rotterdam Ferry experts now and will provide advice at the bar!

Anyone else considering it?

Cheers
Rosco

Just had a quick look at Eurotunnel , Leaving UK on the 2nd at the crack of Dawn and coming back on the 5th , £54 . I haven't really shopped around for ferry crossings , but I think they would be the same but you do waste a lot of precious time on a ferry...

@oldcat: Sorry i don`t understand everything, but i understand, that i understand something wrong... sorry Embarassed

We don`t look for eurotunnel... but now i see the price is not so differnt at the time we came to you (or i look wrong?). With ferry we need 15 hours, but we can sleep there and come cheerful to newcastle.

Laughing And i think we don`t must pay the oil and take care of the tyres Laughing

We stay from there from 20.07 to 30.07...long time to drive around and see most of the sights and make many kilometers (englisch miles)

No I was looking at prices from Dover to Calais return for my trip to Harz. I live in the South so no problem to go to Dover.

"tut mir leid!"

I have now booked my crossing. I'm on the 12:20 train on the 1st and will push on to Venlo, then stop for the night. I'll continue on the 2nd, so might be able to join you for the 2nd leg as you come through. I'm on the 20:20 return train on the 5th - not sure if I'll go all the way home or stop UK-side for a nap.

Also just changed my insurance to Carole Nash so have European breakdown cover too! It's all coming together...!

Great stuff Paul , we might be able to meet up in Venlo depending on our timing. We've booked the 1942 return train on the 5th so at least our return journey is more in sync.

Harz Discussion (Germany 2011) - Page 3 Empty House sale issues forces me to withdraw from trip

Post  Qw8 Thu May 05 2011, 08:52

Hi All
With great regret I have to say that an issue with selling my house (part of the up-coming divorce) forces me to withdraw from the trip.
Any deposits already paid out for my accommodation please let me know and i can send a cheque.
This is a real blow, I so wanted to go back to Germany; next time hopefully.
Sorry to let the group down, enjoy teh beer and bratties guys!

Harz Discussion (Germany 2011) - Page 3 Empty Friday 3rd Lunch Stop & Menu

Post  0ldcat Sat May 07 2011, 16:46

Here is your lunch stop on the friday ride out . . . .

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

The following are the two menu's . . .

1. General Group Menu
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

2. Restaurant menu . . . you can choose if you would like to have something from this menu added to the group menu for the day of the ride.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Of course they are (surprise surprise) in German. See if you can get on with translating them . . . If not give me a shout and I'll give you some help . . . The group menu is easy, the restaurant menu however is a bit more complicated, only for it's shear size and choice range.

The plan for Saturday is to stop at what they call an "imbiss" . . . sort of a chippy (no fish tho) . . . all manner of Bratwurst (fried jumbo ~ and i mean jumbo) saussages, schnitzel (pork escallops) chicken etc with chips and your choice of sauce.
In the evening I believe a group BBQ is planned.

Sadly as you know I'll not be with you on this trip to translate. Fear not , Weasley speaka da lingo to a decent level and many of the hosts speak very good english. Amazingly better the more beer they've had Laughing

Tel

No mate.

But judging by last year they are not as spirited as we are . . . . If memory serves last year in the Eifel, day1 (Fri) was 175 miles or so and they were miffed with the leader for it being so far . . . . day2 was seriously seasonally adjusted down to aroundabout 100 miles(ish).

That's not to say the pace is not at points "spirited" Twisted Evil

Tel may have over-stated my ability in German - but it does improve with increased alcohol! I can usually 'get by', and will make sure have a German dictionary with me!

I plan to mosy on over to the German Thundercat site to get a bit more (re)acquainted and see what the craic is. And I really need to get my bike running properly!

One of the members on the German site has offered to meet me on the way, in a layby off of the autobahn. No timing etc yet, but the location is here...

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Point A is my start in the morning, Point B is the proposed meeting point, Point C is the destination.

I guess you'll be going the same way, so maybe somewhere we can all stop?
