The night before meeting the main group down in Italy... I met up with Rikx1M and a buddy of his in Austria. We met at a hotel in Krimml, Austria. Krimmel has the highest waterfall in Europe and it was literally just a few meters in front of our hotel. Speaking of the hotel... it was quite cheap at 75 euros per night including dinner & breakfast & parking. Rick scored an even better deal by staying at their overflow hotel next door for 45 euros per night also including dinner in the main hotel!

The roads in this area were awesome.... in fact in the 1930's many a hill climb race was held on these very same roads. Kimmel is also near Kitzbuhel(the very well known skiing area).

Rick was out touring Austria... so we picked this hotel as a good place to meet up at. The very next day we would drive South to Sterzing, Italy to meet the rest of the gang at the Zum Engel Hotel in Vipiteno. It's always great to meet old friends like Rick each year on our many road tour adventures. I have to credit Rick for having the idea for our very first tour to Stelvio back some seven years ago!

9 euros to driven in the Krimml toll road. But what a road it is! You can show your toll card for a small discount if you drive back on this road out of Krimml like we did.
