I meant from Kiel to Copenhagen on a boat, though I'm sure there are airways from Copenhagen to Houston. As for me, I can't go, since I'm still in high school

Fastest from Copenhagen to Kiel seems to be the ferrie from Puttgarden, Germany to Roedby, Denmark.

Okay, there's just no avoiding this now. Being from Holland, I'll do my very best to get there. And this would be an excellent chance to let my old '66 Volvo Amazon finally see 'the homeland' (mine was built in Belgium of all places LOL) so you can count me in, and possibly a fellow captain as well.

I'll think i join the Meeting too.

I'll drive by car from Wilhelmshaven via Hamburg to Copenhagen so i may pick up guys at the airport. U-995 is on the way so it should be possible to visit it on the way to Copenhagen or back to Hamburg - i did so 2 years ago:

Neal (and others considering visiting Laboe),

you might want to consider flying to Hamburg, going with the train to Kiel (ca. 1,5 hours) and again with the train to Kopenhagen (around 5 1/2 hours). Trains from Hamburg to Kiel are going around every hour, from Kiel to Kopenhagen I think there are around 5 connections a day. Just a hint. Here is a trip planner from the Deutsche Bahn:

http://www.bahn.de/international/view/en/index.shtml

Anyway, I still don`t know if I`ll make it to the subsim meeting, but if some are planning to meet in Laboe I might meet you there, since it`s only 30 km from here.

One more thing: Neal, you could set-up a separated thread for those guys who will go to U-995. I think it would be good to coordinate it in a manner we could make the visit together, then go to Copenhagen.

Your right Neal...its not the long way around.

I would love to join you in Kiel, but considering im the host, I think I will be very busy the day before the meet.

The cheapest ( if you dont already have a car) would probably be to use the trains to Copenhagen.

The cheapest flights accros the atlantic will probably hold a stop in Frankfurt, Holland or UK depending on what airline you use.

Heres some pointers:
KLM (Holland) www.klm.com
Lufthansa (German) www.lufthansa.com
SAS (Scandinavian) www.sas.dk This airline will have direct flights to Copenhagen from some US Airports including Dulles and New York.
Furthermore SAS, Lufthansa and United are in a group called Star Alliance (http://www.staralliance.com/baseAction.do?language=) where you can earn a great deal of flyer miles.

A quote comes to mind when thinking about UC3 Natilus:
"I think we are gonna need a bigger boat"

If 30 say they will show ... 15 will actually be there.

But it certainly sounds fun. Will they let me where my kaptans hat in Denmark??

There is plenty of time to get ready for the journey... I will have to check my finances. So I wont say yes or no.

I have already checked flights and yes it seems that Frankfurt is the main option

I will however try to go directly to Copenhagen, there are flights to that airport from Madrid and Barcelona.
