TTT 2010 05 Groningen Drenthe
Published: 07/04/2019
rp 42 - Ees, Drenthe
This TTT starts in Pieterburen, known for the seal center *, and goes over mainly beautiful roads to Borger in the province of Drenthe.
* The Pieterburen Seal Center, formerly Pieterburen Seal Sanctuary, is a seal sanctuary in the Netherlands, located in the Groningen village of Pieterburen. It was once called seal sanctuary because it mainly caught young orphaned seals. (Source: Wikipedia).

From Pieterburen you first drive to Delfzijl and you stay close to the border with Germany until you reach Valthe. You will also visit Ter Apel, where a POMS Site ** was established for years. From Valthe you head north again to the end point in Borger.
** The POMS sites were five locations in the south and east of the Netherlands where storage and maintenance of American defense equipment took place between 1984 and 2006. POMS stands for Prepositioned Organizational Material Storage. The locations were in Brunssum, Eygelshoven, Vriezenveen, Coevorden and Ter Apel. POMS NL was a strategic project to be able to quickly fly in American troops in the event of a war in the German lowlands, who could then use the equipment from the POMS sites 'combat ready and safe'. It was also an employment project that from 1984 offered work to people from the east and south of our country where there was then high unemployment. Organically, the POMS fell under the American army, but the personnel were employed by the Royal Netherlands Army or were temporary workers. (Source: RIVM).

Because I have not (yet) driven this route myself, this route gets 3 stars.
