We are now at the Gardenia Du Lago Hotel on Lake Garda. A very nice Italian style hotel. Spent the day looking sight seeing around the local area and having a trip around the lake.

Sixth Update (As of the 16th September 2009)

It rained like hell all day today. But we were brave enough to venture out and we did some high passes. I would like to give you a full run down on the wonderful sights and the terrific roads, but I couldn't see a damm thing. So no photos today.

All the cars are soaked through and mine has packed up, will need to look at it in the morning. I expect the electrics are damp.

Whether we go up the Stelvio tomorrow depends on how things dry out overnight.

I will keep you updated.

Seventh Update (As of the 17th September 2009)

After yesterdays soaking the cars all managed to start ok this morning.

We made it to Stelvio and the weather has held out for us. The roads are much clearer that when we visited the Stelvio Pass a few years ago on a Sunday. A word of warning don't come here on the weekends because the bikers are stuck in all the corners

Some of our member have been spotted on the Stelvio webcam arriving in the ski resort at top of the pass.
