100 Years "Fahrende Gesellen"

In my school days in Germany I was a "Fahrender Gesell'" and spent many weekends and, during school holidays, many weeks away on hiking trips. The comraderie and the adventures of those early days shaped much of my later life.

The "Fahrende Gesellen" celebrate their 100th anniversary this year and, while not there in body, I will be there in spirit.

Es lebe der Bund!
