Nope, I was referring to the veritable plethora of fests of all sorts that seem to occur in the fall. Sadly, I never participated in a Fasching celebration while I was over there. From the stories, though, it was probably for the best.

The Bavarians celebrated aaaaaaalot of 'holidays'. Fasching was a biggin'. As I remember ( through "my celebration help") Was that....... at the end of Fasching, a Bayern male should be able to go down to the Isar, hold his wallet in the river to wash it out. BECAUSE, he had NO money left.

When I celebrated with them........the first part was great, alot of drinking and partying. As I remember, Fasching does have something to do with Lent. (No, I'm not Googling...... there was a time way back when, that the net didn't exist.)

Thing was, I had/have a wallet. Yet, still to this day as then, I don't carry it, nor have I ever put bills in it.

The Toelzers I was with figured since I had no wallet, I'd need to rinse my pockets in the river. Being as it was a once a year Religious custom and they were great friends, I went into the Isar and rinsed and washed my frickin' pockets. It was the third or so week in Nov. Air was cold, the water was cold, after the 'cleansing' it was frickin' FRIGID. But hey. I got free drinks for months afterwards. Not to mention ........other 'stuff'.

I was in my early twenties then. Would I do the same thing 30 some odd years later?

Absofuckinlutley!!!!!!!!!!!

When I was there, it was referred to as 'das kinder fabrik'

Where my wife and I lived, were the old SS type quarters.

I drove by Flint Kaserne, or what's left of it in February. I was driving to Lngries to do some skiing on the Brauneck and went by the old kaserne and housing areas. It is a commercial park now and the gate has been removed.

I spent about 3 weeks in Late 2001 in that area working an exercise for 1-10 Back then the housing had been converted into apartments, but the gate was still there. It must have been a great place to be stationed, and the snow this year was incredible. Winter taining right outside your door.

Anyway, if I get down that way again I'll get some pictures and try to post them.

A shame that the 1st bat. moved to Boeblingen.

BTW the Kaserne in Lenggries former Luftwaffe is empty now and they are still looking for someone to move into. Perhaps the Army should check that out. It is not far from Garmisch.

PS Lettenholz aka General Patton Strasse is full of foreigners now mainly Turkish and Russians families. One of the cheaper parts of Toelz.

In the Flint Kaserne there is now a building which looks like a snail. It has a bank in it and some medical doctors. They spent millions for it but it is a total desaster. You even can not see it from the street because it is inside the Kaserne.

I live outside of Bad Toelz so feel free to ask.

Wow, that doesn't even look like the Flint Kaserne I remember. If memory serves me right, General Patton St was at the top of the hill.

Been a long time for me, Yeah, that is in the quadrangle. Not sure, but that flag pole to the left of that thing may have been the same one when I was there, when we stood formation.

Oh this is just NOT right!!!!!!!
