Greece Your Own Arse 2014

Team Wipe your own arse presents.....

Participants list is now closed!!

Greece Your Own Arse 2014

Dates: May 23rd - June 8th

Rough plan: Take the ferry from Venice to Igoumenitsa and ride back in 2 weeks through Greece, Albania, Montenegro, Bosnia, Croatia and Slovenia.

The ferry will depart on May24th 12:00 hours, but we have to check in as a group at 10:00 hours!! so I will look for a campsite/safe parking not too far from the ferry.
Check Anek Lines for ferry details, arrival time is 15:00 the 25th, so it's a long houl, but I bet the company will make the time go fast ....
Finding campsites for all the nights might be challenging, so be prepared for some on the spot searching for a (wild)camping, hotel or something.

Important to know if you decide to join us:
The formula will be the same as WYOA 2011, 2012 and 2013, we supply the tracks and the waypoints/campsites (as many as we can) where we meet up for the evening/night and everybody can do what they want and however they like to fill in their days during the trip. If you're not satisfied for the day yet and want to do some more exploring, that's fine. If you've had enough adventure for the day and head straight for the campsite, that's fine as well. If you like to cook your own meals or go out for local restaurants, it's all up to you..
What you must do is carry all your own (camping) gear on your bike, bring your own tools and spares and make sure that your travel and repatriation insurance is in order (check if all the countries are covered!!!).
So no backup truck and no guarantees on anything...

The tracks will not be perfect, so you will stumble on closed roads, un-rideable roads, non-existing roads, etc. So know how to work with your GPS and maps when necessary. Also keep using you head, don’t go down a hill, you’re not sure you can get back up and vice versa.

Everybody is welcome, on small bikes, big bikes, experienced riders and trailriding enthousiasts...
Do realize these are not novice trails, so a novice on a heavy bike is probably not the best idea, but if you've got a mate with the same ideas and prepared for an even bigger adventure than it allready is.... go ahead.

We do not ride in one big group, some ride in pairs some in bigger groups, that is all up yourselves as well.
The list is allready pretty filled up, but still some places left, so if you want to get on this list, send me a PM stating your name, nickname, where you’re from, what bike you will be riding your email address for further correspondence and you're cellphone nr , in case we need to get in touch with eachother during the trip.
When your name is on the list but you can't make it after all, please let me know.

Suggestion : check also ferry from Venice to Igoumenitsa (Anek lines or Superfast)

I could offer a place to park vans in Padova - 30 kms from Venice and 190 from Trieste

Important info for all pukers who will be hanging over the railing during the ferry crossing, a life guard will be provided for by the organisation.
Dirty Peet will assume this responsability, next to his role as cultural ambassador for the Netherlands.

I find the subtle change in the title a little unnerving ....

With the constraints on space in the van I won't be on the HP1, it'll have to be one of the CCM404's.

Plenty of followed by topped of with lots ofGonna be epic !
