    Hi guys,

    I stumbled upon this forum and I am trying to find my way through. It´s huge!

    Always great to see how people in other parts of the world are dealing with things and I am hoping to find some inspiration or just having a good time in the forum :)

    I am in my mid fourties, enjoy hiking and right know I am trying to find my way into some parts of bushcrafting :)

    Willkommen! That's the last Deutsche I'll be using, if it's all the same to you, sir. I think it's all I had left, and now it's gone.
    Regardless, it's great to have you here, Gunnarsson.

    Welcome from Michigan. I spent about 2 1/2 years in Germany from July '73 to Nov 75 in the Army. My first couple of days were in Frankfort to in process. I was an artillery surveyor and was lucky enough to do a lot of weeks in the field, camping and looking for trig points in southern Germany. BEAUTIFUL country!!

    I was born in `72 but a bit further to the Northwest. Till the middle of the 90´s there were still a lot of US-Soldiers in Frankfurt, Gießen, Kaiserslautern and some parts of Bavaria. Today there is some logistics and military hospital left.

    Glad you enjoyed it here :)

    I have never been to Ansbach but Nürnberg is beautifull. Especially in wintertime with the castle and the Weihnachtsmarkt (christmas market).

    In the US I have only been twice and one of those two times doesn´t count because it was a stopover to Mexico at Dallas-Airport ;-) In 1996 I was invited to a wedding in Washington D.C. and did spent four weeks in New York before going there. It was an amazing time!

    Welcome from New Mexico. I hope you will post some reports on your bushcraft adventures in Germany. I've been to Frankfurt and Bavaria (Munich area). Very beautiful country, with a lot of forest, and friendly people. If you get a chance to visit this country again, try to get away from NYC and DC to see the best of the USA, especially the Rocky Mountain states.

    The moment my bushcrafting will get adventurous I´ll let you know ;-)

    Next time I definitly have to see and experience more of the impressive nature. But 20 years ago NYC was just perfect for me. As a young man being in THE city was amazing.

    Have you been to Munich? Pretty nice, espacially with all the mountains and lakes around.

    I have been in Texas once. 2 hours in the transit area of Dallas airport on my way to Mexico ;-)

    I've been to Munich several times and it's my favorite city. The food was fantastic and the mountains are close.
