I'd love to go, but money is awfully tight, and I know about three words of German. If there's ever another Subsim meet in New England, I might be able to swing by for a day, if I can beg a ride off someone.

Can't commit because summer holiday is a week after and that isn't even finalised yet.

Bloody annoying

Exactly that was what I tried to organize in the thread: "How about another SUBSiM MEETiNG ?"

My efforts in organizing that received little to no attention.

Really sorry, Jim I don't expect anyone to drop everything and show up where I will be. I was never planning to come to Europe again, tired of travelling myself (and I hate cramped flying conditions) but this project changed my outlook. There was no long range plan.

Organizing a meeting is always hard and hit and miss. A lot of factors -budgets, travel distance, holidays, jobs, etc-- mean that there never is a date that all can attend.

You've absolutely nothing to apologise for Neal, I know how suddenly events unfolded.

Heck, the previous European Meet (Denmark) clashed with my 25th Wedding anniversary so nothing new there then

Sooner rather than later mate.....sooner rather than later.

Perhaps we should explore a joint venture to Salt Lake some time

@Neal,

How are you getting there? Are you flying or going by ferry/overland? If so, where from?

Hey limkol!!!

Nice to see you again - long time since our last talk, eh?

As far as I know Neal's got a hired car. And if you look closely you can find the remaining answers, too: Neal's current Location: Hässelby, Sweden. And I hope we are going to meet in some hotel in Kiel and empty some bar

Are you joining in?

Driving down from Stockholm, and then... ferry or drive? Which should I do? Last time it was ferry, maybe this time drive via E20 an E45? What do you think?

I always fly to Hamburg.
From there it is one hour by train to Kiel.

Yes, Hamburg is your airport. From there is a train to Kiel. I can pick you up at the station.

Hello Neal,
You could drive over to Göteborg. There's a big maritime museum there with a destroyer, Swedish sub and even a monitor, like the ones used in the American civil war. There are other vessels you can go on board too.
From Göteborg you can take a ferry to Frederikshavn and drive through Jutland to Northern Germany. On the way, just off the motorway E45 is a city called Aalborg. There is also a maritime museum there with an old NATO sub and motor torpedo boat.
I don't know if the route is the most practical for you, but it's an option.
And whilst you are in Germany don't forget to stock up on beer, soft drinks and chocolate etc. I think it's a lot cheaper than in Sweden.

@Blitzkrieg
Hello Blitzy
Yeah, been a while.
Don't know if I can go, it's a bit touch and go at the moment. Would love to go but the timing's not good.

That is an awfully kind gesture Neal

I have just taken a look at flights and feel that it may be out of my price range a little (I am used to being able to fly to loads of places in Europe for about £50! Mainly by booking well ahead)

But if my situation cnanges I will let you know

Again - many thanks for the offer

We (wife will probably be joining) will have to drive via Hamburg, to get to Kiel. So if there's anyone to pick up..
