We carry (and store in watertight bags) spare clothes towels etc. With prior arrangement, I can store picnic stuff, more dry stuff etc, near Eichholz so that it is available when we land. We finish with a grill/picnic, all members are welcome, food and costs to be shared. To find us, look for a flag.

I've changed my maybe to yes - it's still a bit tentative as my weather app says it's going to be a stormy day.... hope not.
