At 09:00 we headed towards home! Through Kaltern we drove to Eppan and then on the highway towards Meran. Going up towards Vinschgau the heavy traffic in the area caught up with us again. In Schlanders we left the main route and turned right towards Kortsch. From there we drove, a sometimes very narrow road, through Tannas towards Schluderns.



Then undistrurbed we drive up the Reschenpass and up to Samnaun. The cheapest gas (on this day €1.01/Liter), and duty free shopping always make this detour worthwhile.



Continuing on the detour we decided to tackle the Piller-Höhe from Prutz and then hot footed it to the Fernpass (Hahntennjoch was unfortunately still closed). On the Fernpass there was a lot of traffic again and some of the large trucks arduously made their way up the hill, because of this we did too!
At a rest stop we said our goodbyes to Heike and Franz (they wanted to drive home via Füssen) and we headed home via Reutte and the Tannheimer Tal back to Sonthofen.

Conclusion:

Altogether we clocked a good 1500km in six days. Even though we did not know some of the participants personally everything went smoothly. It was a great group and it was a lot of fun! The weather cooperated, with exception of the descent from Passo Manghen. We had a lot of sun, great roads, little traffic and lots and lots of joy!
