Roadbook to the Iron Butt Tour of the 6th ATiC meeting by Micha Dipper, ATiC #001

This tour will lead you through Switzerlands's most eastern parts, mainly through the district of Graubünden (Grischun) but there are even some kilometers in Italy included.You will meet a lot of pass roads, including Switzerland's and Italy's highest ones. In Livignio, a toll free area, you will be able to buy fuel, cigaretts, alcohol, ... (sorry, no @'s) at a very low prices.  On the way through the Engadin you can see impressive glaciers and will touch famous winter sport resorts like Davos or St. Moritz.

This tour will have a driving time of some more than 7 hours plus breaks and relaxing in the mountains. So a departure time of about 08:00 must be scheduled - believe me it's worth it !
