Welcome to the forum and your trip sounds awesome! Have fun and just remember we like pics, lots and lots of pics! LOL!


On a side note what part of Germany? My DW was born and raised in Bavaria about 30 mins east of Munich. Beautiful beautiful area!!

@Teamfour No need for that embarrassment. Point of View can have so many different angles.


@DreiHunde I've lived close to Duesseldorf and in Freiburg (that's the most south-western city in Germany). Bavaria is indeed beautiful.

Where do you post pictures in this forum?

Finally! We're going on a looooong road trip!

I loved Germany when I was stationed there in the 1980s. I lived in Sembach Germany. Traveled all over Europe while over there. Of course when I was there the country was still split but I did visit Berlin and visited the east side. I told my wife that someday I would take her back to the places I lived and saw there.

I'd like to visit the places I couldn't because travel was not allowed.

@aceinspp, you said 'traveling now days to other country's is non to safe. There is lots to see here in the USA'.

I am from 'another country'. I am from Germany. And from a German perspective it is really unsafe in the US. People are running around with guns on the streets. Kids have to walk through metal detectors in schools because there are guns in schools. There are shootings in schools all the time. In cinemas. And there are an awful lot of people shot or tasered by police for no reason at all. There are people shot by 2 or 3 year olds with a weapon that they found somewhere.
That doesn't happen in Germany. People in Germany have told me to please, please be save in the US, because it's so dangerous here. Friends were scared and would never consider moving to the US.
I've done it and I've met so many lovely people here. I lived in Spanish Harlem and Brooklyn and even Alphabet City in New York City. I've lived in San Francisco too and now I'm in a small town.

I know that there are many reports of bad things happening in Mexico and Columbia. I've been to all countries of Central America except Panama by now. I've lived 6 months in Mexico. I was in Nicaragua and Guatemala. And I can tell you from my experience that the less people own, the more welcoming they are.

So, I'm thankful that you worry about our safety because **** can happen everywhere. I just saw a guy who dropped of his son at daycare and he was wearing a gun on his belt. That terrified me, you have no idea.

We'll take care and watch out for risks. But we're not staying 'at home' because we're scared to meet the unknown. At home is a place in my heart since I've moved 28 times in my whole life and don't go back 'home' to a physical place, or where my parents live. I've never lived where my parents live.

Anyway, that's my way of living. Everyone is different

I am happy to see you taking time for this ! What a great time with your kids and educational experience. Very nice and great memories.

I see a Rpod as a trailer , good choice, small and lightweight and Toyota should be easy to find service. I would make sure I have a couple spares for the trailer mounted on rims and tools to change tires. Being a third world type environment i would pack spare fluids for your truck as well, go to a extreme maintenance schedule to keep things running well.
You can only make the area you in as safe as you want to make it. Being from a more or less peaceful country of Canada I share your fear of some situations as described. I have traveled Europe, Australia and China and always felt safe.

Safe Travels, please do up a blog and post a link here. Would be to share your trip if only from the sidelines.

If I recall correctly (it's been 12 years now) 30 minutes east of Munich would be just around Landshut. Used to go by there on the way to Dingolfing back in the day.

It does bring back memories. I hope to one day bring my DW to show her the places I've seen like that.

Looks like we were both right, Rosenheim would be straight south of Landshut.
