Since my car is still not ready to drive
I have overcome my love-hate relationship and
a little tour through the Raunheim forest and
Monk break made!
At least I've tried not that often from
to incorporate the paths I have traveled into in my children's room! I even found my way back to ours 45 years ago
Hiding! Where, of course, will not be revealed!
Oath is oath and it was settled with blood!

Today the Rodalber Felsenweg, or a part of it, was on the program!
The whole rock path is around 44km and since I liked today's part very much, I will take the entire path in my vacation, slowly visible on the horizon, under my hiking boots.
Unfortunately, my car is broken at the moment, so I have to rely on carpooling, and since they can't be moved, at 5 a.m.
To start, the sun was quite high again today and provided the mobile phone camera with strong contrasts, which it could unfortunately no longer process, so that over 50% of the images went straight to the trash

If I had to rate this dream loop, I would have a hard time!
On the one hand there are very beautiful paths with single trails and constant up and down,
on the other side is the L176 and
the railway line, which unfortunately runs within earshot on 75% of the tour.
Unfortunately, there is no real experience of nature!The tour description says something about "silent valleys" that also exist on the tour but only in the last third!So I would only give this dream ribbon 2.5 out of 5 stars, if it weren't for the negative reasons mentioned above, I would give it 4 stars.
1 point deduction for the unfortunately not always visible signs!LG Klaus,
whose Komoot had some problems again today!

Due to the severe weather warnings, I have mine
planned 2 day tour with overnight stay postponed again.
The planned replacement tour with R.M.
a lot into the water, since the dear fellow has a backache
suffers! Also Hunsbuckel, to whom I would like to give my warmest regards
doesn't seem to be fit again yet!
So I looked into my treasure chest and a lot about this tour, which has been sleeping since 2018!
I had to kiss her awake!
3:00 a.m., the alarm clock goes off and at 4:00 a.m. I was on my way! 5.30am finally there, boots on, backpack buckled and up to the Lindelbrunn castle ruins! On the way up, the one came to me
first hikers towards ??????
Once at the top, the sun was already rising!
You can find out interesting facts about the castle here:
After I had let off steam, it finally worked
on the real tour of my lover
Other highlights are the Löffelberg and Puhlstein,
each with their viewpoints and actually
the whole tour, because not a meter was boring!
The last 3-4 km were mostly through open terrain, here the heat hit me hard,
so that I gave myself the branch to Rödelstein,
I think I would have fallen out of my boots!Danger!!!!
Lots of pictures, many of which are also almost the same! I didn't have the heart to delete it !!!

Today, after a three-week break, I followed in the footsteps of Mischka and Angelika to Neidenfels in the Palatinate Forest!
From the parking lot in Neidenfels we went through a few alleys towards the castle ruins of the same name.
I wasn't paying attention here and I missed a branch.
The punishment followed immediately in a beautiful but very steep staircase up to the ruin.
Once at the top I was able to explore it and let my gaze wander over Neidenfels.
From here it was first on a single trail, then on a wide but not boring forest path for a very long time up.
After a few kilometers I turned to the summit cross of the 566 m high rear Stoppelkopf
To get there you have to leave the forest path and switch to a beautiful single trail, which slowly screws upwards and almost goes around the stubble.
Here you pass sandstone rocks that are not big or high but give the whole place an energy that made my hair stand up.
I would have liked to have stayed longer, but unfortunately it approached 5.30 p.m. and the tour went a little further. So it went down the spiral again to the junction, which developed into one of the most beautiful sections of the tour!
Nice sandy ground, the edges of the path lined with blueberry bushes!
Just lovely!Now there was still the Devil's Rock and the Old Devil's Rock, two viewpoints one
Allow a very nice view of Lambrecht and invite you to rest, on the program!The further path leads back to Neidenfels above but parallel to the valley!LG Klaus, who will follow a few tracks on one of his next tours!

Hello, I'm not doing so well at the moment!
Hunsbuckel and I met this morning in Schweigen-Rechtenbach to drive on to Kaiserslautern in his car. The first stage of the Palatinate Forest Path was on the program! Unfortunately, Hunsbuckel had to break off the tour after 12km and took the bus back to Kaiserslautern.
and still 157km separate me from my car. Just got off with my best friend Tel.
If it doesn't work anymore, he'll pick me up!
So, unfortunately I can't promise that there will be 6 more stages to follow.
I also don't know whether I always have a network in the evening!
In terms of landscape, the tour is a dream!Our Palatinate Forest Path Tour started in Kaiserslautern.
Here I first dragged Hunsbuckel over 206 steps up the Betzenberg to the Fritz-Walther Stadium! From here it went in a wide arc around the residential area "Betzenberg" to the three Humbergbuchen and on to the Humberg tower of the same name.
We climbed this via 33 steps of the outside staircase and the following 130 steps of the spiral staircase,
which is also suitable for people who suffer from fear of heights, as one is constantly walking the walls of the
Tower in mind! At the top at a height of 28.16 m it looks completely different, but here stone walls also surround the tower roundel, so that if you don't look down but into the distance, everything is bearable!
Now it went on over the triangle stone, which has the coat of arms of Wittelsbacher Rautenwappen,
Kaiserslauter city arms and Wolfsangel shows, further to the Pfaffenbrunnen and the
The associated refuge (only suitable for one person to stay overnight)!
We circled the 406m high Pfaffenberg generously to the Georgsbrunnen on the
To get to red hollow. Here you can still admire the wagon tracks left by the Romans,
which we did not notice in our delirium!
Now the Unnerbrünnchen followed, which unfortunately dried up during our visit!
In Dansenberg we admired modern art in the form of graffiti on the outside wall of a hall.
(Far from graffiti)
The shepherd's fountain in Dansenberg is unfortunately not suitable for topping up water, as the lever of the pump has been mechanically blocked and pumping is not possible!
At the Rambachbrunnen it looked really good, here I filled 2 bottles with spring water
after and immediately took another bottle to me!
The Rambachweier followed next,
a small, idyllic lake with crystal clear water! The hunting lodge with its flowering meadows was our next destination.
Now it went through the Aschbachtal to the Jagdhausweiher to the old melt,
where Hunsbuckels and my ways unfortunately parted, as he did the tour for health reasons
Had to cancel reasons. Well I was alone and I had another 160 km to go!
I bravely set out on the path, which from here on is really beautiful and, above all, mountainous
and for the first time I became aware of the 19kg on my back!
But giving up was not an issue here!
The further path meandered over single trails and wider paths to the hunger well,
which was probably also dry because I didn't take a picture of him!
The Finstertal and the Naturfreundehaus of the same name were my next companions,
but they stayed behind immediately! There was actually a lookout point at the Naturfreundehaus
on the program, which I am due to the weight of the backpack and which is still to
completing distance to the car, gave away!
Now it was a long time along the moss ointment to the Unterhammer Cafe and on over the
Wilensteiner Mühle to the former hermitage, which should be my first possible accommodation for the night. (Space for 1 person or couple :-))
But since the ground is not quite even, I moved on to the Amseldellhütte, which is wonderfully quiet!
But the silence hit me so badly that I became aware for the first time:
"To be alone!
I called my best buddy and complained to him of my suffering, unfortunately he had 2 doubles
Vodka Orange and didn't want to drive a car anymore!
Now an ice cold night followed, with the definitely wrong sleeping bag (Carintia Tropen), because it was the second coldest night in my life!
(I experienced the coldest in the armed forces in the foxhole, where melt water was formed by the body heat)!
Never in my life have I been so happy as, after a sleepless night, finally the
Sun rose! Now I did a little beautiful tour (which you can see),
to bridge the waiting time for my taxi.
We'll be back 100%!LG Klaus

The plan was to hike on the Palatinate forest path from Kaiserslautern to the southern wine gate in Schweigen-Rechtenbach. Divided into 7 stages and due to the lockdown restrictions, the tour with a tent in the luggage should lead over mountains and valleys to numerous red sandstone rocks. Already in advance we turned like the weather in circles, which turned in the forecast from continuous rain to sunshine and ultimately to the stormy Whitsun weekend.I made 160 km out of the original 143 km in order not to just run past all the rocks that Manggongjai drilled to 180 km a few hours before the start. So the stages were still in our performance class, even if things are not so comfortable with a lot of luggage. Therefore, in the last few months I have already covered a total of 90 km with up to 23 kg of luggage (in real terms it was then almost 20 kg) for training purposes, sometimes my bird food supply, sometimes a tent, sleeping bag, water etc.As far as well prepared, we first went to Schweigen-Rechtenbach to place a car there as a destination and from there to Kaiserslautern, where you can park on the Lämmchesberg without any problems.From there, the first Klaus modification led us over long stairs to the Betzenberg, where we could admire the orphaned 1.FCK stadium. The tour then continues over sometimes wide, sometimes narrow paths and paths, but steadily uphill to the Humbergturm (424m) with a magnificent view of Kaiserslautern. Now it's first following the 400m contour line, then down through the "Rote Hohl", and then ascending towards Dansenberg on one of the typical long-drawn Palatinate single trails, where I already felt the first physical difficulties, although my preliminary, unverified self-diagnosis believes in circulatory disorders.
I should have been caught by the lunatic in her white SUV, who shortly before approached me unchecked at the edge of the forest path and was only prevented from carving a new notch in the "Killed pedestrians" list by roaring and wildly gesturing my "protective kite" can.Despite a rapid reduction in the valuable water supply and dextrose tuning, there was only limited easy progress from Dansenberg downhill, so that in the "Alte Schmelz" valley, given the subsequent ascent at Stelzenberg, I determined the pros and cons of a breakdown. The bus stop there was very tempting and my doubts about my current ability to manage the further stages with ease grew with increasing wind strength. I didn't want to spoil Klaus his dream tour, but then I had to let him go on alone and after a short wait I was brought back to Lämmchesberg by the 170 bus within 5 minutes (!).Ok, that's it for now. After the first night, Klaus decided to cancel. Hopefully we'll get this tour up and running, we're not getting any younger either, but maybe we should start later this year in the future.
In April 2019 I was caught up in winter on the Schluchtensteig and the Soonwaldsteig in May 2020 was accompanied by ice and frost.
Spring is no longer what it used to be ...
