POMERANIA TROPHY – TRUCK


31. Mai bis 2. Juni 2019


POMERANIA TROPHY – (HOUSE) TRUCK

 Marvelous lands of Pomerania located just 250 km from Berlin. Drawskie Lake District. A weekend between May and June 2019. Over 600 km of a specially prepared route for expedition trucks (campers). Specially selected gravel and dirt roads for the needs and capabilities of this type of vehicles. Tourist convention. Possibility to see (ride across) the largest military ground in modern Europe.  Lakeside accommodation (lodging) with access to toilet, bathroom and electricity.
All pets accompanying the participants are welcome.
Adventurous route with various events in which one can, but does not have to, participate. Rope bridge, march down the river, canoe episode, paramedic in off-road conditions, sightseeing of historical sites, for example: underground atomic weapon storage sites from the “Cold War” era.  Above all, however, mesmerising natural landscapes. The possibility to climb a 50 metre-high fire lookout towers with attractive views.
 Norbert Zbróg, the event organiser, invites you to participate in it. The creator of the oldest (the first edition was in 1995) regularly organised international off-road TROPHY event in Poland named POMERANIA (TROPHY- RESCUE) with the tradition of many participants coming from Germany. Soon (October 2020) we will celebrate a 50th edition of this popular and interesting event. Norbert is an experienced off-road wanderer with 30 years of experience. He has been organising the POMERANIA TROPHY for over 20 years now. He was the first foreigner to drive across the northern Ural Mountains from Europe to Asia in 1999. He has been penetrating desolate areas of Romanian Carpathians since fifteen years now. He has completed an off-road trip in the Caucasus with the finish in Pri Elbrus “airfield”. He values off-road mostly for the possibility to “catch views”. Reach something to see something - this is his motto. He prefers long strolls far from popular places, contact with nature and adventures. As an expert and lover of POMERANIA, he will personally lead the participants along specially-prepared routes and path of adventure.
 We invite all types of trucks which are adapted to off-road tourism.
