Dear friends,
Just came back from a great Amphib meeting in Germany at Traben Trarbach, at the river Mosel.
Jurgen Neuenhausen and his team did a fantastic job to organise such a big event. sunny
Everything was good organised, with many meals, tours, excursions, nice locations and villages and most of the time
sunny weather.
There were abouth 60 vehicles over there and with a big variation lol
Sunday until friday we had different tours with wednesday a resting- / maintenance day.
We started with every morning a briefing with the latest updates.

Then the tours on the road and ramps to the river.
Image
A trip or swim for some time and than a break.
Image
This all was traditional ended with a "captains dinner" with all the "normal" traditions and habits.

A great variaty of vehicles:
At least 25 Amphicars, here the organiser, Jurgen and some of his team:

14 Ford GPA's from all over Europe:
