Hey Mark, were you stationed in Germany?...
I'm looking at options for our next base (probably within 1-1.5 yrs from now) and loved my "deployment" to Germany last fall. The logistics of getting the family to/from there might be a hassle but part of me thinks it would be amazing to get the whole family in Europe for a few years. What did you think of it over there? Would you do it again?

Re: Hey Mark, were you stationed in Germany?...
We did two tours in Germany. First was '78-81 and the 2d was '94-'97. The first was our first tour anywhere so it was probably more of a shock for Lynn. We were stationed in Hanau, close to Frankfurt and the weather sucked. Cloudy, rainy, cool. The 2d tour we were stationed in northwest Bavaria - Wuerzburg - and absolutely loved it. We travelled all over Europe, as I got leave, and loved shopping and eating on the economy. I would highly recommend it.

I was at Kitzingen and Schweinfurt....
Both about 40 miles from Wurzburg. There's a traffic circle in Wurzburg that I toured around maybe 50 times one night in a friends 52 Mercedes 300 funeral limo. The curse of too much kirschwein! But thats another story!

Low Mileage Garage Queen - Almost a "10"
We are the second proud owners of a 2000 2.3 which arrived by train from Western Canada to our family in September 2001 with 9,500 Km - 5,700 miles. Almost 10 years later and this year we will break the 50,000 Km - 31,250 mile mark. We have been to 4 or 5 Homecomings, Z Fest in Nashville in 2002 and a 2 week, 5,400 Km tour of the east cost of Canada last year.
Our baby goes under the blanket in October and comes out to play in early May. Needless to say, it's in great condition and receives a lot of TLC along the way.
Fred has the right idea, the kids can duke it out over this one.
Miles of smiles!
