Uk-Sweden (Stockholm) may/june...Want to join?

It started as a crazy idea, to drive one rib from uk to sweden. And now we will be atleast two rib boats.

Maybe right after ribex or early june. But i know atleast parker drove from poland for ribex, and also atleast one brand from Holland.

So if you read this, and will do the trip again, we can maybe go together. More fun and safer.

And also for you who live in uk, and would like to go little east over the channel. Maybe to Amsterdam or so....

Not so crazy. One of you Scowegian lads has been buying up Redbay 8.4 Expeditions in Ireland and driving them home from Cushendall! This is quite a trip via the Caladonian Canal...

'course, you need the right rib, and quite a lot of diesel
