    Toni can do back-up for Sunday's return - contact me with your fuel requirements.

    Any back-up vehicle for Saturday's green route?

    Harald, official departure time and place Whk-Oma?

    Well I think for all of us to be there in time for the registration starting at 10 am the following times should apply.

    WHK-OMA Blue Route (Tar all the way) will have to leave at 7 am. This will give an estimated arrival time of 9:30 am.
    WHK-OMA Blue/Green Route (Tar from WHK to Wilhelmastal & Gravel from there to OMA) will also leave at 7 am. Estimated arrival time of 9:30 am.
    WHK-OMA Green Route (Gravel all the way) will have to leave at 6 am SHARP, estimated arrival time of 9:30 in OMA.

    As usual I would propose that we all meet at the Engen service station in Olympia.

    Also this way we can all gather in Wilhelmstal, and form two distinct groups to travel the last part together either by tar or by gravel.
    From Wilhelmstal the tar route and the gravel route both will take about an hour.

    Participants for Blue Route:
    None on here dedicated for full blue route so far accept for Noreen that will go blue route all the way with the car. Not too sure if Toni is going blue all the way top Omaruru but presume she will go mixed route.

    Sorry guys, I will not take the green route to Omaruru, although I voted for this, but I am not comfortable with pushing it on that route. Richard Wahl, Henning and myself will be joining Harald and Stephen 7h30 at Danric doing the Blue to Wilhelmstal and the Green to Omaruru.
    The 3 of us will do the green route back, anybody want to join the green route on the way home? We till take it easy to enjoy the scenery!

    HEHEHEHE Martin sounds like you think that we are going to go gun-ho on the green route taz!
    We are going to have a nice comfortable tempo, definitely not going to go see if we can break the sound barrier. Evil or Very Mad

    Anyway, have a awesome trip, we will then probably meet up in Wilhelmstal and join you guys for the rest of the stretch on the green route Twisted Evil
    RIDE SAFE Everyone scooter
