    Default Fehmarn to Berlin 300 miles on wheels

    And this is what we hope to bring home safe. Screenshot_20181123-144403.jpg It is a 5t MAN Kat1 4x4 with V8 aircooled Deutz Diesel.
    The canopy is missing but we want to get one set from another guy on the way home.

    A nice guy from Hamburg had a look some weeks before and give us some informations about the condition
    of this MV. Following his oppinion we gonna make it. Hope the window vent/heater will work fine on the way.
    In preparation of the trip we sent at least 4 boxes with tools, filters,bulbs, fuses, warm boots and jackets,....
    by parcel service.

    Good luck with the recovery. I'm heading out Monday for a 2500 mile round trip. Mine isn't a MV but I'll be driving a Nissan Titan towing a trailer to SD then picking up a F350 and putting the Nissan on the trailer for the trip back. The F350 is an auction buy so having to take faith in their description of the vehicle. Just hoping there's no snow.

    Chris,

    There is one, if not two of them in Kulmbach. The guy has had them for ever, and done nothing with them. Next time down this way, might pay to ask about them.

    In the Black Hills, it can snow any month of the year. I was on the phone last Thursday, Hill City, (The Heart of the Hills) and it was snowing, according to my Aunt. So drive safe partner!!

    Now I’m curious.... Why did you send the boxes by parcel service? Will you drive to Fehmarn and have a chase vehicle for the trip home?
