Our plan in short

Purchase a used trailer.
Upgrade said used trailer to be an awesome intergalactic feeding station for hungry, towel-less, weary, travelling hackers.
Trailer should materialize at appropriately convened meeting places where makers, hackers and other tinkerers tend to converge.
The Restaurant at the End of the Universe's basic setup will include a Nutrimatic Drink Dispenser (not a depressingly stupid machine) - which yes will be adequately programmed to re-create pan galactic gargle blasters, among other edible items.

Features of the basic food setup require:

water interfaces
  • providing drinkeable cooking water as much as a washing place
cooking appliances
  • gas grill
  • gas boilerplates
  • gas deep fryer
  • bain marie
  • konvektomat
surfaces - for food preparation and food serving

What we envision:

 A reusable road legal food trailer that can appear at multiple venues for the purposes of ensuring all weary travellers to said venues are  appropriately nourished.
 What funders receive in return for helping fund our project:
the perks :-)
the feeling to do something good
the chance that they can eat food made at this food trailer on hacker camps.
 Future aspects:
We plan to use and expand this food trailer over the time and then - in case milliways appears on hacker camps - make some awesome food.
The trailer should be done for ohm and there be part of the awesome milliways village. We plan to use this trailer again maybe on EMFcamp, ICMPs and - for sure - the next ccc camp in 2015.
If we manage to reach the extended goal and will build a food trailer for the american continent i hope it will appear with milliways on the toorcamp 2014 which will be even more awesome than the toorcamp 2012.
Other ways to help:
Donations of time for the buildup. contact the team in such cases. Also we gladly accept donations of equipment.
