How about organizing a Sortie North-o-France in the Vosges next year ??
I bet we could have a few northern scimitarists (Patrice, Peter, 2xFred, James, Ian + how many in Alsace ? + Jorg on his way to Germany !) :mrgreen:
Just a thought :lol:

Sounds great, although our daughter-in-law, who is from Lorraine will tell you les Vosges are not, strictly speaking in the north 8)

Thanks to both for more site material, Philippe as usual and great to hear from The Shed.

3 pics of the day !
Not really in the mountains - in fact this is the "Puits RODOLPHE", an old potash mine, it is 750 meters deep (2450 feet).

Relevant question ! In fact, there is a missing piece : click here to guess which one !
And here is another mine pit with another great classic car : click here to see it :)

I just found this thread - amazing routes! I believe that in 2016 in July I may have crossed paths with you in Alsace (Route des Vosgues) - in the red Mini that is my Avatar! To this day, remains the only Scimitar I have ever seen on the road in France when passing through - it got me very excited, but the SE5a had stayed home...
