View Full Version : Euro-Rondy: who can make it?

10-25-2011, 12:21 AM
OK, there seems to be quite a bit of interest in a Kifaru Euro-Rondy. Patrick Smith has even shown interest is attending. He'll be in Europe June 2012. So that would be the natural time to have it. His dates, and by default, our dates are not yet firm.

For those of you who don't know; camping out in the woods (like in the States) is illegal here in Germany (and most of the other European countries for that matter too). We will have to either stay at an established camp ground (which will probably cost us around 100-300 Euros for a weekend with a big group) or on private land. If anyone has/knows of any private land we could stay on, please let me know.

Here is the question: Who wants to attend the first ever Kifaru Euro-Rondy sometime in June 2012?

Please respond to this thread so I can keep a running count.

I am game. However the school I work for is very disorganized and I barely know my schedule from day to day let alone months in advance. But as soon as I know my dates I will keep you updated.

Hmmm...most likely not attending. Any locations where there's volleyball and beaches? If it's just setting up a tent in some random campground like I've seen photos of in Europe, might as well be a happening place.

Concur, although those types of camp grounds are very common in the late summer when everyone in Europe is on holiday. That's why we're thinking about June . . .

My wife has some land in Austria, about two hours from Vienna near a town Mariazell, right on this lake, however it's yards from homes...

It's far less remote than the Colorado crew is used to. I can ask around in Austria sounds interesting to see if other options are available.

Fish - please do ask around. The more options we have, the better.

I was stationed in Aschaffensburg, just to the west of the campground, back in the 80's. There is a castle there, Schloss Johanisburg, that is a nice place to visit. You could still see the holes in the castle walls where tanks from one of Patton's armored divisions sat on the hills overlooking the city and shelled the castle with indirect fire. There are also some old concrete bunkers from WWII in the forests to the east of the city. We stumbled on them while patrolling in the woods during training.

No one interested or just no opinions?

Just to mention the topic again.
