For all of you inclined, I am planning the next trip to Langenaltheim Offroad Park:
m=1&ct=result&prev=/search%3Fq%3Dlangenaltheim%2Boffroad%26hl%3Den in May. The plan is to leave Heidelberg at 1000hrs on Friday 22May09 and arrive at Langenaltheim around 1230hrs. We can all meet at the Burger King parking lot on Patrick Henry Village in Heidelberg at 0930hrs catch a bite to eat, introduce ourselves, catch the stragglers and roll out at 1000hrs. I am going to camp the night of the 22nd and 23rd and head back home sometime on the 24th. Two days of wheeling will probably result in some major Jeep carnage, therefore I am taking any and all ideas as to some other events that we can add to the agenda. So far I have horseshoes, dizzybat, maybe some volleyball at the nice campground, swimming at the nice campground, and I will be bringing my rock climbing gear. For those of you in other parts of Germany or Europe for that matter we can meet at the Offroad Park. The GPS address is as follows, yes it works I can vouch for that:
OFFROAD Langenaltheim Park
Lower Haardt 4
Prices are as follows:
Free Drive: Euro 22 per vehicle per day
Free Drive ˝ Day: Euro 15 per vehicle per day
Weekend With Camping (2Days): Euro 40 per Vehicle
Groups of 5: Euro 95 not sure if camping is included, more to follow on that.
Groups of 10: Euro 185 and same as above on camping.
Of course as I posted in another thread there is a campingplatz only 5KM from here. The place looks really nice and I think we could probably talk them into some sort of group discount if we can get a good sized group to attend. If all else fails we can always camp at Langenaltheim. Here is a link for the nice campingplatz:
What to bring:
Camping gear: Tent/camper, sleeping mat, sleeping bags, camp stove, cooking and eating utensils, cooler, frothy adult beverages, flashlights, first aid kit, Food, BROTCHEN, fold out chairs, etc. If you need some good pots and pans for a dedicated camping set I highly recommend going to the recycling center on PHV in Heidelberg, that is where I got mine and the price is right FREE.
Wheeling: SPARE Tire(s), this place is hard on tires just ask CHUCKNES, tow strap camera, and any spare parts you usually carry, ADAC info if all else fails, Tools, something to change tires with, compressor for airing up ( I may have my own by then) , tire plug kit, fore extinguisher, etc.
This place will probably be a mudhole from hell by the time May rolls around so be prepared.
Here is a link to a google map view of the place, it is just east of the town of Langenaltheim:
I am really pumped for this trip, it will be over a USAREUR training holiday so hopefully yall can put your passes in now, mine is in already. If you have any questions please fell free to ask. Because I would like a good turn out on this one and it is 50 days away from the post date of this thread I will ask that you please email me well in advance with a yes, no, or maybe and also any information concerning how many days you plan on attending. Don’t forget to add any sort of fun event we could do while not wheeling or wrenching on someones rig. I want to let the offroad park know how many people to expect as well as the campgrounds.
My POC info is as follows: firstname.lastname@example.org
I know we have been bouncing around the idea of a Meet and Greet for a while and nothing has really come full circle, let’s make it happen.
Tell all your friends and family and maybe even some buddies that don’t have Jeeps.
To all of you interested in participating, thanks in advance. I hoe I didn’t forget anything but I am sure I did.
