Berichtdoor bunny » 18 Sep 2017 19:20

Hi chaps, any news on Winterbivvy 2018, we would like to book Eurotunnel really early this year... then very cheap :shock: 8)
No pressure, but any info would be great :P

I hope all our Flemish friends are well and making the most of a beautiful Autumn?

Hi my Flemish friends, is there any more news on where Winterbivvy will be taking place or where we are driving to? Jackie and I will be in Belgium from the Friday 26th of January, as we are renting an apartment in Damme for a week 8) We will then head over to Winterbivvy and find a hotel close by :shock: Anyway, not sure on numbers yet from the TwinAxle Club, but I hope someone will lead the troops across the channel :roll: Finally, have a wonderful Christmas and we will see you in the New Year... 2018 :P

Hi Bunny,
as mentioned yesterday by message on Phone, the location will be in 08140 Daigny, France. This is in the French Ardennes, near Sedan, where we've been on the Winterbivak 2015 (I guess).
About 300km from Calais. Waypoint N49°42'20" E5°00'21"
This is an old French military tank-training site, now used as a 4x4 terrain.
Lots of possibilities hard to soft, in open fields and woods. Nice flat place to put up tents and fireplace.
There are no facilities on the site, so we're looking to get a toilet on wheels...
More information will follow.
Looking forward to meet a lot of our Twinaxle friends. :P

Greetz,
Stavie

Sounds great and if you could arrange the snow like last time too, please :shock: 8)
Jackie and I are in Damme for the week before Winterbivvy and will drive down on the Friday (possibly driving down with some of the FLRC crew?), but we will need to find a hotel close by, as Jackie does not camp :oops: Looking forward to it 8)

I know someone who stayed in a nice hotel a few kilometers away from the site in Daigny, I'll ask them for the details and forward it ;-)

Oh Bunny,
we have a problem: we got a message from Daigny that the terrain has been sold, so it will be impossible to organise the Winterbivak over there this year :cry: . We're looking for an alternative, on the same dates. :roll:
Sorry for the inconvenience.

Dear Bunny & Twin Axle members,
First of all my best wishes on behalf of FLRC to all of you.

Sorry for late update but off road sites are closing one after another. Due to??
Practical information can be found under Winterbivvy 2012 as we are going to this site. Martin will surely remember this Winterbivvy as cold and snowy. We remember it from frozen Jupiler.
Prices have also increased to 50€/car/day and camping 8€/person/night. Due to? The Brexit?
My feeling is that most participants will only drive on saturday and use sunday for chilling and decamp.
I hope you'll find a B&B for Jackie. If not, tell me and I'll ask the owner of the site.
