Well, back in 2010 I was going to Cooke and I got close but could not get the time off to visit the Flugplatz. Now, I am going for a 3 week driving tour of Southern Germany. I know I promised some guys that I would try to pick up some hats at the Golf course. If it is still there I will. So it is up to you to get in touch with me if you want one. I hope you guys are still alive. Ralf, if you are still out there please let me know. I owe you a dinner. It has been since 1967 that I have wanted to do this. I think it might be a bummer as last year they tore down the little house behind the MP station where I lived and worked. That said I have decided to call this The Get Over It Tour! If they are still there I want to hit Ma's, Hoenstaffen, and the Wald Cafe. I will be in Germany during October. All the best
Craig.

Well! Don't go back. Mostly what is left is the main hanger in good repair and the MP Station which is a dump. The good food is gone. Young people do not care about us (big surprise!) But wait, some good news middle aged people and older people are really happy to see you when you tell them about your time in Geop.  Over the last 50 years the town has grown to be about at least 5-6 times of the size it was in the 60's. Almost no open fields are left between Stuttgart and Cooke. We met some really nice people every where we went. We had a great time. I am calling it The Get Over It Tour! So, there you go. Craig

thought your post "get over it" was quite interesting, like to thank you for posting it. and you convinced me not to go back,  which I think most of us had thoughts to do,
