Sure nice to hear from you again,
Yeah, I do remember some of the conversations we shared, during a number of hikes in the Belgian Ardennes .
My participation to "In the Footsteps of the 82d Airborne Division" goes back to 1983, and as far as I can remember I only missed two hikes (traveling o'seas for work) .
I gave up participating a few years ago, because of my poor physical condition and age combined with a few personal health problems, though I'll never forget the sometimes 'painful' experiences we shared, crossing valleys and hills ...
It's a pleasure to welcome you on board buddy !
All the best ,
Alain S. Batens
