We will depart at 5 pm or as close to as possible. Join RoadKing VTC Discord using the widget at the bottom of this page for voice chat.
As we Stand for the Flag, and Kneel for the Fallen, we will travel through to some significant World War II areas. Unfortunately, these places are not properly represented in ETS2 due to the scale of the map, but we will use the closest viable locations.
We’ll have a two (2) minute silence at each stop before we continue the convoy/go for bathroom breaks etc. After the two minute silence, feel free to share any relevant history or anecdotes (stories).
We will leave Tyne Port and take the ferry to IJmuiden and drive to Amsterdam Hotel (for Anne Frank House) then drive to Rotterdam Europoort and cross back to the UK and drive to London Hotel or Bus Stn (for Churchill Museum and Cabinet War Rooms).
Next we will drive to Dover Port and pause for photos after the silence, before crossing to Calais Port (for Dunkirk). Approximating the location of Dunkirk puts it on the Calais-Duisburg road so we will use the port instead to avoid the chaos.
After leaving Calais we will take the most direct route to Berlin (for the Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe/Holocaust Memorial). This is where the convoy will end for those without Going East! DLC.
DLC Going East! Drivers only:
After a brief rest in Berlin we will continue to Katowice Stein-Bruch (for Auschwitz-Birkenau) and finally north to a rest stop between Olsztyn and Bialystok (for the Wolf’s Lair/Wolfsschanze). We will then drive south to the memorial of the Battle of the Dukla Pass (Dukla / Carpatho-Dukla / Rzeszów-Dukla / Dukla-Prešov Offensive). This is where the convoy will end for those who own the Going East! DLC.
