Day 10: Adults playground
As usual we got up a little late and therefore had to run through breakfast buffet, making some sandwiches for the road. After three cycles around the police underground parking area (thanks to the GPS), we headed to our first stop in Karlsruhe at the KIT (Karlsruhe Institute of Technology) Campus. A lot of Students and even the city major – who enjoyed a ride in the zero-tracer –came to greet and visit us.

We had a short guided tour through the automotive part of the institute, where they have the possibility to play with a remote controlled Porsche.

We planned to make a pit stop at a.b.c. Reifen in Mannheim. Not like discussed on the phone, they weren’t able to offer us the desired tires. We decided to go directly to the Wasserturm and disarrange the tire change.

Whilst charging the vehicles we took some photos with the beautiful water play in the background.
At 5pm we departed to our overnight stay in the small town Oberursel. The announced dinner showed up as bread & sausages, something we hadn’t eaten for weeks...
Team E-Wolf and others helped the wavers getting to the hotel, which was about 4km far away. Nearly everybody was assembled in the lobby to use the WiFi connection, what turned out to be too much like the Sankt Gotthard for the MIA!
