25-Jul-2009 -- Buschtaxitreffen im Naturpark Altmühltal

Obwohl diese Konfluenz mitten im Wald, im Naturpark Altmühltal, mitten in Bayern (oder ist das Franken? ;-) liegt, assoziieren wir mit diesem Ort die weite Trockenheit der afrikanischen Sahara: Einmal jährlich treffen sich Buschtaxibesitzer aus nah und fern bei den Weißenburger Freunden, um das 75er Treffen zu feiern.

Dieses Mal haben wir den Grill erst ein bisschen später angesteuert, um vorher der Konfluenz noch einen Besuch zu gönnen. Zum Glück haben wir den Schilderwald ernst genommen und sind vom Parkplatz (ca. 800 Meter nördlich) hergelaufen. Beim, dank schlechtem Empfang, ausgiebigem Nuller-Tanz begutachteten uns sogar am Samstag die vorbeifahrenden Waldarbeiter.

25-Jul-2009 -- The get together of Bushtaxis in the middle of the natural reserve Altmühltal

Although this Confluence lies in the middle of a forest, in the middle of the natural reserve Altmühltal, we always associate the aridity of the African desert Sahara with this location. Once a year owners of Bushtaxis from near and far meet together at Weißenburg to celebrate the striking shape of the 75 (and some other special Bushtaxis).

At this time we hit the grill later and could spare some minutes to visit the Confluence. Luckily, we didn’t ignore the prohibitive signs - even on Saturday the lumbermen drove past while we had a long zero-dance.
