I haven't been to Bad Tölz since a few years. But I'll travel through this area most likely in August this year when I'm on my way to Austria... and once more on my way back.

OK. Thanks Jaeger. Lately, I have been on a quest. Trying to remember the name of a place, I used to just about live in, when I wasn't off somewhere else. Problem is, I can't remember the name, neither can my EX. We knew the owner, his mom and Oma. His name was Herbie. His restaurant, bar was east of the Isar. It'll come back to me sometime.

If you get the chance in August. Think you would have time and look up a name in the phone directory for me? I tried Googling for that, but came up with nothing.

One of the guys on my team was married to a local gal that was born and rasied in Toelz. Her name was Rosie. His name was Ron Brown. He would be long retired by now. Perhaps he settled in Toelz.

I just searched for them on http://www.teleauskunft.de/ and called the german phone directory enquiries - both negative. So there won't be any entry in the Bad Tölz phone directory neither.

Some people just don't want to have their numbers in the public directories.

I could call the BT inhabitants registration office to find out if they live or lived in the area of BT, if you want.

I could also use nonofficial sources to find them, if you want.

If it is the Ron Brown with a twin brother named Don, he lives in NC, last I heard.

Thanks Jaeger. I appreciate the time you took to check it out. it was just a thought. I have no real reason for thinking he would retire there. However, I do love the part about using "nonofficial sources" thing. Don't know why, just seem to relate to it.

Thanks TR. If he had a twin brother, I either wasn't aware of it, or forgot. His full name was... Brown, Ronald W. He was our senior commo guy.

Well damn! Finally ran into someone out here, that knew someone, I did way back when.

You're right Steve, They are great folks. I don't suppose, they still had Leon (a St Bernard).

Would be great to find 'Charlie' Brown and get him out here. One of the QP's sent me an email for a Ronald W. Brown. I emailed him yesterday. Not sure if it is Brownie though. I have an old Team pic, I'll scan and send to you Steve.

who else could Ronald W. Brown be...? thinking back, could be that Rosie was from Gaissach...never used to get Greiling and Gaissach confused...now, the only drop zone i remember for sure is Karen...i can't remember if Grief was up the road toward Greiling or if it was Edith...

Can only be one 'Charlie' Brown in SF, married to a local gal named Rosie. But as I remember, she was born and raised in Toelz. Anywhere in the area is close enough. I don't remember if any of the DZ's we used even had names. I do remember the one we jumped into the most. It was a farmer's field. Of course, he gave his permission and all and was notified about each jump. The guy had an evil sense of humor however. When he knew we would be 'dropping in' he would choose those days to bring out his 'honey wagon' and well, prep the DZ for us. Pleasant.
