And get acclimated to riding on the "bahn". Don't know if you have to have a special license now. Years ago in a car doing 120 mph outside Heidelburg (sp) was scary, I was not driving but front seat passenger.

Did not like seeing brake lights coming on up ahead. And then to be passed by a VW Rabbit   :)

Be safe

No drama indeed!! ::)


I've ridden many klicks on the Bahn. What can be truly scary is going 140 mph and having a car come out of nowhere from behind flashing his lights wanting you to get out of the way with another car flashing at him/her.


Black shoe, brown shoe, sewer pipe, they are all the same. Except brown shoes and sewer pipes both NEED DIVERS (strong, handsome, heroic, invincible young men and awesome women) when SHTF to come rescue them or they need something blown up. :)) Fly Air Farce, Navy Divers need the work. :great:

My only response to that is that there are only two types of ships on the seas.  Submarines and Targets  >:D

Sub's are a lot like airplanes, only good for jumping out of. Or in this case swimming out of. We always thought of them as stealth cruise ships (I know, boats') with lots of stewards to cater to Our needs and wants. The only thing more fun than jumping out of a perfectly good airplane is swimming out of a forward tube. If a dry deck was attached then they became our taxi. :rotflmao: . Hats off to the crew's, they always brought us home. :great:

If you ever operated out of Hawaii, I may have been your Taxi Driver (or Mechanic actually) at least once.  Good on Ya.

Worked out of Mare Island a lot. Parchie & Sea Wolf. Some Greyback and a few others. Hawaii a couple of time, Pt Loma a few. Holy Loch and Faslane also. Thanks for the ride.
