Brad:

That sure sounds like Karen DZ. Great Gueat house on the way back to Flint Kaserne. We always had to ruck back and stop at that guest house everytime. If the Team Sgt wasn't with us, we would have a beer.

never wore serviceable fatigues to jump Karen...you're right, the sick bastard would always spread his liquified cow dung the day of a drop...being DZSO at Karen was another treat...spend several hours out there, taking in the aroma...

After Joe Alderman left and Steve Omasta became Tm Sgt we would drink a beer or two then. With Joe it was Spatleze. The honey wagon was well known on Karen. On one jump we even had a guy land on a cow that was laying down. The old girl jump up, kicked him and shattered his leg.

Probably was the same DZ bost. Seemed to jump that one more than any other. Only one or two beers?

Spetzi...Spatleze would be noodles...Spetzi was beer and 7-Up (or the German equivalent thereof...
Steve Omasta...haven't heard that name in awhile...probably 25 years or so...

I wonder if that's a regional thing, as around Wuerzberg/Schweinfurt, beer and 7-up was called Radler Bier, and usually served to children at fests. Spetzi was some type of combination of cola and orange Fanta sold pre-mixed.

you're right...Radler...bost led me astray with his noodles...but spetzi was both a specific and generic term, not unlike coke...it was either cola and Fanta or cola and the house brand citrus drink...radlers were beer and limonade as i recall...if i recall...

Yeah it was half Bier and half Limonade. It was also a very popular drink at rest stops and such along the Autobahn.

What can I say, I left there 26 years ago. Never could spell German very good. The beer was always the first choice.

Bottom line, any of that beer is good! If only I could get posted there again (nothing like foreign travel on Uncle Sugar's dime).

PMFJI, Brad thought it might be a good idea to bump this thread up.
My relation to 10th SF is in my profile, Brad has a little more detailed info, names and photos from Tölz. Feel free to ask !

OK, may I set the record straight ?

Spezi: a mix of orange lemonade and coke (my wifes favorite)
Spätzle: the noodle specialty from Baden-Württemberg (also copied in Bavaria)
Spätlese: "late collect" of grapes that saw the first frost. Thus the stuff is awful sweet and gives you a headache (well, at least after two or three .75 Liter bottles) I´m more the Riesling type.
7up and beer is a RADLER, 7up and Weissbier is a RUSSE (Russky, I don´t know why they called that a Russian... ).

Last but not least the bad news:

Flint Kaserne is a shopping mall now.

For those of you who understand German:

Quote:
In Bad Tölz ist, auf einer Fläche von ca. 25 ha, aus der ehemaligen amerikanischen Flint-Kaserne ein hochmodernes, leistungsfähiges Wirtschaftszentrum für Dienstleistung, Handel, Gewerbe, Behörden und Arztpraxen entstanden.

Das neu gestaltete Areal ist geprägt von der Karreeform des ehemaligen Kasernengebäudes (vormals Basis der "Green Berets") und der außergewöhnlichen Spiral-Architektur im Innenbereich des Gevierts.

Das Flintcenter liegt verkehrsgünstig am nördlichen Stadtrand von Bad Tölz und ist bequem mit öffentlichen Verkehrsmitteln oder dem privaten PKW zu erreichen (mehrere hundert Parkplätze direkt auf dem Areal). Der Bahnhof ist zu Fuss ca. 5 Minuten entfernt.

In der Peripherie finden sich vielzählige Einkaufsmöglichkeiten, die Hacker-Pschorr-Eisarena, das Tölzer Hallenbad, der Skaterpark, sowie der Golfplatz.

Ausgezeichnet Mike.

Mike, yearrrrrrrrs ago was taken under an A Team's wing over there. I'll let him explain the details.

Mike, when you have the chance. Tell us about the apartment complex across from Flint. The one, that when I was there was called the 'Kinder Fabrik" All these guys know of it.

Dankeschön Brad !

Years ago... Yes, like 15,16,17... Damn, I miss those days.

The housing area. Don´t get me there... It´s a problem spot for the Bad Tölz Polizei now. The Kinderfabrik is now a refugee-Kinder Fabrik. After the wars in Yugoslavia and the middle east it´s full of Kosovos, Albanians, Iraqis and other nationalities known for causing problems.

I drive/ride by there all the time and it´s sad to see what happend, to both the Kaserne and the housing area...
