Hi all. I was in the American Army outside Mainz in a little town called Wackernheim "20min" bus ride from Mainz. Did 2 tours there 92-96, 99-02. I spent many many days in mainz, shopping, sight seeing, going to clubs. I would sometimes ride from the base to Mainz on my bike "for fun" and the normal single soldier stuff to just get off the base. I still go there every year. To see my 6 year old daughter and to see my friends. If you have any questions about mainz or the area I would be happy to help. If you'r there in Feb 08 I'll see you there. Have fun and be safe.
