Thanks to everyone that was there and the clear weather, the meeting was a big success. It stayed based on the Champs de Mars for the whole three days, entailing deep and meaningful conversation with the local police force.
In addition to the usual "get drunk/get laid" action that seems unavoidable in such occasion, some very practical topics were addressed, such as:
* Nomadic philosophy * General survival tricks, whether in the wild or in the urban jungle. * Much much sharing of hitch-hiking experience. Everyone seemed to have a cool story to tell. Palme d'or goes to Fabrice for the Stevie-Wonder-smile drug-lord. * Friendships were formed or developed. A very important thing for such a loose society.
The Documentary Project===
Like all the movies go, the documentary project got a ride for the editing step in Copenhaguen with Martin, don't worried ! it won't become a comic movie for all, there some french guy in the team, so no problem ... It will take a long time of course, several months for sure. .. Next news in few days. [[User:Terrehappy|MiSha]] 23:47 13 August 2008 (CEST)
Next year: 789 === *Next year will see a European Hitchhikers Gathering, so we hope for you that it will be a pleasure one again to Share a other experience together. Of course, it will be very difficult to do better, but if all participate a little, it will be our paradise. *Check the organisation on that link > []
Some hitchhiking anecdotes === Share your stories!
* There was a lot of space in the car, I asked him
for take me to Orléans, he said : Ok I give you a ride ! Oh no no I can't, my wheels will touch the car !!! [[User:Terrehappy|MiSha]]* One hitchhiker arrived from [ [Linz ]] after 21 hours of hitchhiking , stayed for 4 hours and went back home again to be back in time. * The last hitchhiker who arrived in Paris for the gathering stayed partying with her driver the night before. Could there be a better excuse?* One hitchhiker had to go back 40 kilometers to pick up a phone he had left behind in a car. Another hitchhiker almost lost all his luggage because he said good-bye before he picked his luggage from the trunk.

'''Accommodation / third option?'''
A third option would be if we can find a court-yard somewhere in Paris or another spot closer within the city for about 20 tents. This would be the perfect way by which we could actually combine groups of people that are hosted in the city and others staying in a tent but closer to the city. If you know anything, please share your thoughts in the 888-group.
