Ringberg Revival 2011 (post-EF party in Suhl)
« on: 07.12.2010, 20:37:25 »

Last year about 30 furries headed down to the Ringberg the day after Eurofurence to enjoy a night in the company of our old friends.

Does anyone want to do that again this year?

And if so, would it be preferable to do it on Sunday night, August 21, or Monday night, August 22?

I vote for Monday night, because missing the Dead Dog Party would be a shame.

I don't know yet if I can make it, though. Still trying to get enough time off work...

This question of choice makes me curious about something...

Is Domestic Travel subject to summertime Sunday Congestion?  Here in the USA, during summer vacation season, Sunday is "get home before returning to work tomorrow" day, and it makes the highways crowded; Monday travel, except during rush hour commutes, is much lighter here, and I was wondering of the same pattern holds true for Germany.

Also - I was hoping to read a report in this Forum about how well the Suhl Field Trip for 2010 went; and whether there is any possibility of another "Suhlvester" party.

I'll be there again, and I too don't want to miss the Dead Dog Party ;D

Uncle Kage, Chairman of Ringberg Revival, we salute you! Cheers! :P

(also, will you try again to make the Crazy Horse open for us?)

@ VulpesRex:
Yes, there will be more public traffic on a Sunday. Especially @ the concerning EF weekend, because in Sachsen-Anhalt, school starts back on the 25th. So in my experience, parents travelling with children will preferably choose the 20th or 21st to come back home.

In generell - and perhaps still on the 21st - you will be much faster @ Sunday, cause on Sundays and public holidays, trucks are not allowed to drive between 12am and 10pm. And on German motorways, it is mostly trucks that slow you down.

Thank you, Drift, for that information on traffic patterns on weekends and holidays.

This information - particularly the item about Trucks (or Lorries, as the English call them) not being allowed on the highways on Sundays and public holidays is exactly the sort of useful tidbit of information which locals possess, but which isn't included in travel books for some reason, and so we travellers are ignorant of them.

There is a wealth of such information, which native populations regard as commonplace and hardly think about, but which baffles us auslanders - and of which it would be mega-useful to compile and post a list.

on Sundays and public holidays, trucks are not allowed to drive between 12am and 10pm.

12am is ambiguous, though. German Law dictates midnight, to be exact, or 00:00:01 am, if you prefer.
Therefore you'll be safe of lorries in the mornings too, except for a handful of exceptions. No need to call the police if you still see some of them on the road. ;)

ooops, I actually ment midnight... got the am and pm thingie wrong  m(

thanks gyro...

And yes, there are some exceptions.
Lorries without trailer are allowed to drive, and some that got certain cargo = extra licence. But that's rare, you can still feel the difference driving on Sundays ... :)

@Vulpes:glad I could help...  :D
