Hello Ramstein Airmen and the KMC community!

My name is Capt. Spanky. After years of growling, my human has finally rolled over and allowed me to bark out a few lines about the amazing travel and leisure opportunities around Ramstein.

Leaving the doghouse behind and getting out and about was harder than house-training but fortunately, my human is more obedient than I was as a pup. Our first excursion off the leash was to Nanstein Castle in Landstuhl. I didn't know what to expect at first, but once we got there I was happier than a golden retriever in a fire hydrant factory.

This place was amazingly beautiful. The scenery was like none I've ever seen before and the view from up there went on for miles. The castle itself was somewhat in ruins, but had plenty of places for me to run around, though I stayed out of the dungeon; that place was scary!

All-in-all, I had such a good time I decided to mark it as my territory ... on the map of course!
