  Stefan, Ralf, Veit, and me: Koblenz, 1986
by b1bob

Fondest memory: Finally meeting Stefan, Ralf and Veit. I was delayed by 13 hours due to an electrical fire from New York to Amsterdam. That set off a chain of events which put my meeting with them in doubt. This was 1986 long before e-mail or common use of mobile phones, so I couldn't tell him I would be late. The electrical fire incident was so unusual, I was worried they wouldn't believe me when I explained. Everything was all right and Stefan and I are still friends now.
