Help, my family is going crazy !!!

Post by caysa on Fri Jan 15, 2010 5:37 pm

It all started with Anna and Timo that need a bigger and newer car. So far pretty normal...
Also Anna needs a new safer horse trailer.
This is going to be expensive.....

Ok, they start looking at cars on internet - and cannot find what they want
The finally decided on some sort of Volkswagen bus - it must have 8+1 seats (part of them will be removed to make space for all dogs) and it must be 4 X 4 and it must be diesel.... and and and....
Well, no such car is to be found in Finland so............................
............. they start to look even more on internet and found a used one that would suit perfectly..... in GERMANY
Good idea, they think, we can get it from there
and Anna starts looking for the horse trailer in Germany too.... and found one she wants ...
Now they just need to find someone to go and look at the car........... There is a Finnish couple living in Germany that are specialized on "cars to Finland" - they call them... and now, TODAY, everything is about ready . Just like that

The result is that Juha and Timo, on Monday, will fly from Tampere to Hahn 125 km outside Frankfurt (Ryanair uses this airport). From there they hopefully will take a bus (not taxi ) to Neu-Isenburg, south of Frankfurt center.
There they will stay one night and on Tuesday they get the car and then they take off to Horn-Bad Meinberg, somewhere half-way to Denmark. There the horse trailer should be waiting..... Then they will drive as far into Denmark as they can and stay one night there somewhere. On Wednesday they plan to drive all the way to Stockholm to cath the evening ferry to Turku. So sometimes before noon on Thursday they should be back home. 2200 km...........................

What shall I do with them

That´s what I call a tour around Europe Laughing At least they have a nice travel...

Some people already thought me to be crazy when driving to Eastern Germany several times - no idea what they would say in this case

You can print this post, map and all, and keep it in your wallet for future needs - after this it will not seem odd at all to drive to Eastern Germany

I know it was summer time and I had no horse trailer but this summer I did 1500 km from Portugal to Bretagne and the same to come back from Ré island to my home. And it was one trip, and one driver whistle

I think it´s 80km/h but I´m not sure since I never have a trailer.
Ladyhawk knows for sure!

If I will go to Estonia (as I said I have no idea if it will be possible - it depends on quite a lot of things ) I won´t take the car. I´m not fond of driving long distances at all (but when going hunting I have to go by car in order to be able to take the venison home )

You could fly, there will be enough people from LLL with cars who will invite you...
And it takes not as much time as travelling by car..but wait and see what happens..
