The 2012 European Hitch Gathering will be in Ambraziškiai, near Molėtai, Lithuania. The location is set amongst an abandoned vodka factory which sits beside a lake, small village and some nature like fields/forest/hills etc. The date is still Saturday 4 August 2012.

In the village there's a shop (we'll inform them so they can prepare a bit). Next to factory we have a good clean lake for swimming. Factory area itself is a bit industrial - but there are patches of grass. And even picnic tables. But it gets perfect around the area: plenty of nature! fields, grass, forests, hills - all for us. There's an old horse stable, or more like ruins of it, just walls; I think inside it we can make very cozy circle around the fire.
