Guys, I know you have been going strong for twenty years but my adventure started in 2008. I thought this picture would sum up why I'm hooked.

Dirndls

Need help finding a source for a dirnd or ladies lederhosen.  I would prefer to buy one from a German company , because  I don't like the ones I've seen  imported by the American  companies.  Schlumbergerlady, can you help me? I liked the lederhosen you had.  And guys, I'm really not asking for your fashion advice.  I remember the last time I went through this. :-)

Berchtesgaden Travel Options

The following travel option seems the best if we want to go to the Salt Mine and Eagles Nest on Monday.  We take a train and bus, which takes us directly to the Salt Mine.  Return trip is all train.

Thoughts?

Let's Start Planning the Day Trips.....

I was going to recommend Berchtesgaden and the Salt Mine along with Eagles Nest on Monday.  This would be a full day since we need about 2.5 hours on each end for travel.  However, I believe Barbus and Schlumberlady do not arrive until Monday.  Is that still accurate, and if so, what is your expected arrival time?

San Diego Ranked #3 in Best Beer towns of America

I personally think San Diego is a better beer town that San Francisco (#2),  but will bow to the greatness of Portland Oregon (#1)..

Chugger ... start planning now for your visit in July!!
