The Car is Packed and Europe awaits !

Hello,
Here are pictures of my car unpacked and packed for my 20,000 mile trip. I was on the road for 90 days with my tent and the hospitality of hundreds of Corvette Enthusiasts.
It looks very neat and tidy, but once I was on the road, it was as messy as a kids room after play time.
I did not take a spare tire, I used the space to pack my tent and sleeping bag and stove.

Ready to go!

It's a good idea to use the space of the spare tyre for tent and sleeping bag.

Insurance while driving in Europe with my car

Autovakuutus ajon C2 Euroopassa

Insurance for driving my C2 in Europe

Hi, I have found out that my insurance company does not cover me in Europe for driving my car .

I have European companies that cover any Europeans I may crash into (they into me) but will not cover my car for damages or theft.

Please direct me to a European Company to cover my needs for the 2 months that I will be in Europe.

Thanks

not an easy task..
i will try to remember to ask about this from my insurance dealer i think he knows what to do
i will return to this after next week because i will be snowmobiling in northern finland the whole week
my own guess is that you have to get insurance witch will work in europe at least scandinavian countries from the US.

Hi Jarmo,

I think your location is on my map. I am really looking forward to my visit to Finland.

I have taken care of the Insurance problem. A forum member in Netherlands has put me in touch with a company that will cover my insurance needs through out Europe.

Seen you soon

Was the northern lights great this past day or so with the Sun flare.

Jack

Nice to hear that you got the insurance arranged. I checked and you can get a liability (liikennevakuutus) from the customs office at the border for the time in Finland. But that would only be for Finland and only liability.
