EXTRA INFORMATION! PLEASE READ!
These co-ordinates are true to the best of Google's knowledge and as such should not be relied upon and will only give a general direction. It will be down to your vigilance to ensure that you are able to stop safely and efficiently.
I have given both co-ordinate types that most sat navs commonly use. I am sorry if this does not support yours, however,please use http://www.nearby.org.uk/conversions.cgi to convert these.
If you do not have Sat Nav,it is advisable to gain access to a printer and google maps. Please use the co-ordinates in brackets and print off direction sheets.
DO NOT RELY ON THESE CO-ORDINATES FOR FUEL STOPS! It is unknown how many of these stops have a re-fuelling facility so please ensure that you stop when you need fuel and do not try and run to the next checkpoint low on fuel. IT IS ILLEGAL TO RUN OUT OF FUEL IN GERMANY AND YOU WILL BE FINED!
Remember,this is NOT a race. If you get pulled by the fuzz and given hefty fines for driving like a tit, do not come running to us! If the police ask about 'the furball run' seeing as you *may* be bearing those stickers, we are NOT a rally or race,we are a CONVOY. I do not want the whole convoy labelled for one thoughtless persons actions!
I am NOT to be held responsible for any incidents that happen on the Furball Run through no fault of my own.
Good Luck,Have fun and Drive Safe,always wear a safety belt and use your turning signals and also don't forget to check your mirrors before overtaking *coughMEYOUcough*
Please ensure that your car is road legal,in a good state of repair,you have all the needed items (Eg headlamp deflectors,First Aid Kit,Bulb Kit etc) and that you have ALL documents on you (insurance,V5©, M.O.T,Tax and BOTH parts of your driving license) and have European breakdown cover.
