Transylvania 2015 – the classic offroad adventure

Our traditional 4×4 tour of the Carpathians lasted for 14 days this year, gathering 8(+1) participating vehicles. It was divided into two parts – the first week was (mostly) on known trails, while the second week was a scouting tour. It took place in the best 4×4 playground in the southern Carpathians, going over numerous 2000+ m peaks and including the Tarcu, Ruska, Surean, Lotrului, Latoricei, Kapacini and Fagaras mountain ranges. We had fantastic company on the tour consisting of great guys & gals coming from Germany, Austria, Romania, New Zeeland and Serbia, made up of both experienced offroad drivers and newcomers. All the vehicles (Jeeps, Mercedes G’s, and a Landy Discovery) were well equipped to fit the task. Like in previous tours, several cars had technical problems, but with the help of our Romanian friends we solved most of them very quickly and efficiently. A big, warm thanks goes to Achimoto Marius from Hunedoara (who helped us both with technical issues, and with accomodation), Paul Offroadadventure from Tirgu Jiu (who quickly provided some second hand tyres to replace the burst one), and to Ionut Pampu, who found out and informed us that Paul has the tyres in the right size available.
