maybe someone can help me out of my dilemma.
Me and my friend are flying to Berlin and taking the bus from there to the Fusion.
But we aren´t that into to take everything with us (tent, sleeping bags and so, difficult to transport) -is it still better idea than to buy everything new? but if we would buy them, is there a place in berlin where to get everything for OK price?
RV (Wohnwagen) would be of course the "easiest" for us, but i think for just 2 of us, it would be also too expensive.
Suggestions what to do?
understood you intend to buy camping-equipment locally in Berlin?
Just by chance, found 1 shop for outdoor equipment at Berlin, while I was looking for a my own new Fusion tent
This is link should not be considered as advertisement, just as a good advice: http://www.mctrek.de/Service/filialen/B ... lottenburg
Pricewise no idea if OK-prices available.
Guess there are many other shops where its worth to have a look at...
However of course please take care of your schedule in regard to your plannings i.e. Airport-Shop-Bus-Fusion

Mein Englisch ist echt beschissen, vielleicht mag ja jemand meinen Beitrag übersetzen.
An sich eine gute Idee.
Aber je nach Fluggesellschaft (Billigflieger) problematisch, denn das ist unter Umständen so ein Rucksack schon (teures) Übergepäck.
Für alles andere muss extra gezahlt werden.
what about sending your equipment by post to the festival. Might be cheaper than buying new equipment. Just contact the fusion crew and ask if its possible. I know from this possebility from other festivals.
I would recommend you to take yor stuff with you by plain. I did the same last year, and there are good reasons for it...
-it's probably the cheapest way (even with extra cost for luggage (if i'm not completely wrong about 25€)
-why buy something new that you already own? I think you woldn't take the new equipment back by plain, right? Would be a waste recources...
-the way from the airport to a nice, cheap shop also takes time and money, even if you know exactely where to go
-no guarantee that some equipment is left to buy. A friend of mine wanted to buy "rubber boots" (i have no idea if this word exists in english and all was sold out...
You just need a big bagpack where you can put your stuff in-and outside, even if it's a bit big and heavy. This year i asked all people i know about an wohnwagen to rent and, lucky me, friends of mine have one for reasonable price, so i don't have to fly again, juhuu
Hope i could help, cya in june!
