wet,l that describes it in a nutshell, it was a disaster. the rain virtually cancelled the battle. oh there was an attempt by some hard core types to skirmish in the soggy woods. But most soldaten gave up and left. the night before was fun Jeffs Jeep and a Kubel conversion and a Dodge WC 63 six by six were there. and we went out on a trail ride with the jeep and kubel. i didnt even know there was a system of trails about a mile from my house, we went thru the open gate and hooted and hollered thru the woods and found a kiosk with a map of the trails. Now i have to get a jeep or a kubel of my own. Will and I had words about me chickening out. plus I am no longer the CO but I am the chaplain. there will be an event in Curtiss Ark (ost front) on Feb 10-11, 07. I want Zukov to contact me about this. I can outfit 3 Germans and a Russian for the event.
