Seems a great idea Smile I'll probably arrive there mid-afternoon, leaving me the rest of the day to walk around the city.

Right guys, it seems I might need some assistance around Thessaloniki. The Alp will need some new tires then, and possibly I'll spend an extra day there. So if anyone's got a space for me to pitch my tent or spend the night, let me know Very Happy

With the final few weeks until departure under way I thought it to be a good idea to put the cause behind the project into the spotlights again. So here goes!

Prep-wise it's going good - the Alp's now had the majority of the preflight maintenance. Just the oil + oilfilter to go, and then it's just running around panicking for the final week until July 19th Very Happy

Getting closer and closer Very Happy

One of my colleagues came with the original idea of a 'picture send-off' - you can tag yourself in this Facebook picture, and using your profile pic she will draw you into the picture of which the original will be auctioned off in September as well. The more people get involved, the more awesome it will be, so please pitch in!

Well, this is it. The moment I've looked forward to for 3 years is finally here. Sometimes I thought to myself just how big a nutcase I am for doing this. Hell, there have been times I wanted to just throw it aside and do stuff regular people do... but I knew that wouldn't make a particularly exciting story to read, right Wink

The beast has now got fresh rubber, wheelbearings, oil and oilfilter as well, finally getting it at full strength for the 4500 mile ordeal that lays ahead.

And me? Well the coming month, I'm just going to take it as it comes. As is usual with whenever I go abroad, I never watch any video or photo material from other people that have visited the countries in question - this way, I have no expectations. It's like going out to see a movie without having seen the trailer... I already know I want to go, and that's all the motivation I need.

If circumstances permit, I will post small updates on the project Facebook page when I'm on the road. Rest assured though that after the trip, I will post an extensive ride report here, along with all the photo and video material.

If you haven't done so already, have a glance at the auction goodies that will go under the digital hammer in September. Or tag yourself in the send-off drawing. It's all for a good cause, right Wink

Basic itinerary for the road down is as follows:

19th of July - Belgium
20th of July -Luxembourg - France - Germany
21st of July - Switzerland
22nd-29th of July -Italy
30th of July-7th of August - Greece
(31st: Patras, 1st: Kalamata, 2nd: Cape Tenaron, 3rd: Athens, 4th: Lamia, 5th: Thessaloniki/Veria, 6th: Ioannina area - these dates are subject to change, I've got room to stay somewhere longer)

Everything after that is up in the air. I plan to be home around the 18th of August, but it could be earlier or later depending on how things go.

Take care, and maybe see you on the way!

Hello my Greek brethren!

Yesterday I reached Brindisi, which means that tomorrow evening I will board the ferry to Igoumenitsa where I will arrive on July 30th at 4am in the morning.

The itinerary as it was remains the same: Patras 31/7, Kalamata 1/8, Tenaron 2/8, Athens 3/8, Lamia 4/8, Thessaloniki/Veria 5/8 and Ioannina 6/8. There's room to stay somewhere longer though - it's flexible Smile

See you soon!

Hi Greg,
It is strongly recommended to meet Patra's vstromers... they can give you useful info about your trip down and up to Peloponnese.

Also don't forget the time difference between Greece and Italy (you have to add one hour to your clocks when you will arrive to Igoumenitsa).

Hey Greg, which way you are planning to follow up to Lamia ? The E75 ? When you are planning to leave Athens, on 4/Aug morning ?
