    So your the guy..We were there in 1998 to clean up the bottom where the tenders used to be tied. The US was giving the land back to the Italians and had to return it to its origional state. I believe that in 3 weeks we pulled 21 tons of junk off the bottom and another group of divers was coming in to relieve us. Very beautiful location. I was in the MED at that time (73-74) aboard the USS Columbus CG-12.
    The thing about traveling is, you never want it to end and you can't wait to get home.

    My wife and I rented an RT in Milano in October, went riding, and ran across this "farm truck" near Lake Como.

    This is a scan of an old slide I took back in the 60's. It was taken from Naples looking across the water at Mount Vesuvius.

    Naples

    The clubs were nice in Naples, we got to see our first drive by at one of them...... two guys on a Vespa...... we were laughing so hard..... then we got off the ground and went back to the ship. Had the best sea food past the castle in a little alley, good leather also.

    It's always good to revive a Franze thread.
