(Ben) ...From Simonswald it was an easy drive to the Gengenbach area where we would spend our last three nights in the Black Forest. We decided to take a scenic route via the Schutter valley where Dee Dee, Amy and I had spent a few days back in 02. There is one particular valley off the main road (L102 - Talstrasse) - called the Laulisgraben. Several nice farms in that valley where Larry (PStuyvsant) and I stayed previously (the Grundbauernhof) and one where the family and I hid out for a few days (the Schwörerhof).

Our objective for the day was a farm near Gengenbach that I have had my eyes on for many years but for one reason or another I had never worked it out to be able to stay there. The Kälblehof is a good sized farmhouse and Ferienbauernhof near the end of Fussbach Strasse and turned out to be the best place of this trip (as far as accommodations go). A large bedroom, separate lounge with couch, two recliners, Sat TV, separate large kitchen,

very large two sink, bathtub, separate shower bathroom, essentially the entire floor of the house. No breakfast but that was agreed to before booking - Gasthaus 800 mtrs away for breakfast but we never used it - too many bakeries around.

Our last night at the Kaelblehof saw the sky open up with a thunder and light show and buckets of rain. The only thing better than cows in a meadow below your balcony is a cool, refreshing rain storm.

Gengenbach, as always, was great (ate with Stammtisch friends Len and Shari one day). Spent a few days running up and down B33 - Schiltach, Wolfach, Haslach. Stopped by the Rotbauernhof in Gutach to book rooms for next year. This is an excellent farm that my travel group of mail carriers will enjoy next June. With the Vogtsbauernhof within walking distance and a Sommerrodelbahn just across the way (with a Biergarten) - we couldn't ask for a better location for a few days.

An excellent restaurant in Fussbach...within a kilometer of the farm. The Sauerbraten was excellent.
