On 22 and 23 October 2005 we retracted the Hammelburg Raid with original vehicles and men in uniform. When Abraham J. Baum heared from our planing, he was enthuseastic and came with his family to join us. After four month of intensive planing and paperwork, we had all clearing, which are required to move a military convoy 120 km along public roads. Officials were suspicious about our project, because they were affraid we could damage something. The first part of the tour went from Aschaffenburg to Gemünden, the other day we continued to Hammelburg. All participants of our Raid and the population were enthused and most interested.
