Elefant on the 90
Hello, I too am gearing up to attempt the Elefant on my 90. I also am not sure how long it will take to get there.
It's roughly 800 miles from Calais avoiding motorways and Highways.
I have to say, I think 350 miles a day is optimistic.
Apparently, it's simply too cold to travel after 4:30pm.
I suppose much depends on the weather. If it's snow all the way it'll take much longer. I don't fancy riding on highways on snow in a blizzard at 20mph with trucks and lorries coming up behind at 40mph plus.
I'm thinking of four days each way, and not sure it'll be enough.
Also, not sure whether to attempt to camp right through. Could be too wrecked to enjoy the party if I camp on the way, so not sure whether to do hotels, they're cheap enough as far as I can see, prob less than £25 a night, and could make all the difference.
Not sure if I want to team up with anyone, I don't want to be a burden to anyone, neither do I want to be burdened down by someone ill equipped/prepared.
Good to discuss it and talk it through though! Cheers, Newt.
