...and I arrived!

After a day of travelling, I arrived around six on the campgrounds of this years CCC.

Oh my, what a surroundings these are!

The campground is on the terrain of a museum of old airplanes. So people walk around here in between MiG airplanes and such. The terrain itself is next to an airfield, make that an airfield *which is still in active use*

There are not a lot of airplanes landing, but get this, the sleeping tent of the BSD Village, where I’m staying, is next to this airstrip! (and yes, already a couple of planes have landed there since I was here)

on the left, my bed. On the right, the sign you can just see? It says ‘flugplatz’...

Well, it’s gonna be a great couple of days, I’m pretty sure about that.

....but for now, I’m totally exhausted and need some sleep. It was godsend that this year in the OpenBSD tent there’s actually real food from a real cook, everyday! What happened to the tostis?
