Heading to K-Town for my next adventure as a GS Civilian.

if anyone has been there lately, please toss me a note in here or a PM.

I've never been there other than Ramstein and that was 3 years ago or so.

Trying to figure out a decent place to live that is close to work but even closer to public transportation so I can bug out easily over the weekends/holidays

Thanks in advance.

Spent a fair amount of time in K-town back in the 1980s. Our rigger support was located there so we'd either fly up in CH47s or drive a 2.5 up and pick up chutes, just about every month.

We were told that reportedly, at least during that period, K-town had the distinction of being the largest community with US citizens, outside of the United States. Don't know if that was true but what I can say is that it was quite common to see English language street signs and American themed restaurants.

I think its a great location as you can get into France, Belgium, Luxembourg, in a matter of a couple hours. In fact, if you're into military history, Bastogne is quite close. Also, most of the worthwhile German cities are an easy day ride from K-town. Congrats, I think you'll enjoy, I'm jealous.
