Like last year we have a unique historical location as our base of operations, Campground “Het Goeie Leven” (The good life). In 1944 this campground was part of the famous sand dunes of Eerde where the American and German paratroopers clashed several times. The climax was at 24 September when the Americans launched a fearsome bayonet attack towards a much better equipped German opponent. The battle was intense and both sides suffered tremendous casualties. In October 1944 the sand dunes were excavated as base for an airstrip (B85) which facilitated over 150 Spitfires which flew sorties from here into Germany. Much support was flown from here during the operation Varsity, the successful Airborne operation in Germany near the town of Wesel. After the war these fields were used as agricultural land until in 2011 when it was transformed into a wonderful campground, where the love of camping and good food can be enjoyed. We are welcomed by Johann, Anke, their kids and the complete “Goeie Leven” team. On the evening of the 18th of September a music event with a Big Band will take place at “Het Goeie Leven”. (This is under slight reservation.)
