Berlin or Bust

Gate into Dachau Concentration Camp

 August 19th  We moved about an hour away to the small town of Hochspeyer. Along the way, we detoured to the US Military Base in Sembach. We were stationed here from 1983-1986 when it was operated by the USAF. Since then, they've turned half of the base over to the community and it's now an industrial area. The other half is now operated by the US Army. We were curious to what it looked ...

Plans Gone Awry

Marktkirche in Wiesbaden

 August 18th We tried to get in touch with Jake's parents, but never did. Guess they're out on a trip, or at least not answering their phone. Jake also tried and couldn't get ahold of them. Oh well, we still enjoyed our visit to Wiesbaden (mostly). We stayed at a regular paid campsite near downtown Wiesbaden. "Wörther-See-Straß" is privately owned and it was a quiet stay. We decided...

France's Maginot Line Placement A4

Our destination was another free Aire in Pfaffenhoffen, France. This free Aire is provided by the town and was great, with free water and dumping, and cheap electricity. We got 12 hours of electric for €6 ($7.20 US), but was mo...

We finally made it to Europe (again)!

Back in France!

August 10th It's been over 35 years since we were last here, when we lived in Germany for three years (USAF). This trip all started with an very early morning on August 10th. Waking up at 3:00am, we caught a shuttle to the Phoenix airport. Arriving at PHX, we had to present our passport, proof of our COVID vaccinations, and a form letter from France where we would confirm we hadn't been in contact...

Europe, Here We Come! (I hope)

We had heard there was a Bobcat with a couple kittens in the area of our home, but we never saw them... until the other day. I installed a camera at the front of the house that alerts us and records when there's motion. The other evening, the camera recorded the three bobcats. They came out from the side of our house and crossed the driveway. Here's the short video that was captured.  I ...
