Greetings. Right.. Preparing for my first outing to Wacken this year. Here's the thing- I've never had a passport- and hence, never stepped off this little island. I am curious. What is the likelihood of the weather this year? How was it in '06? I'm also considering travelling to Germany about a week early and spending a few days just toddling about and heading up north for the festival at the end of the week.. Stopping off at campsites for a night (we'll have tents anyway). Anyone recommend anywhere particularly on the route as a "must see" destination? See you there.
