Kent Mathieu, who runs TaipeiAirStation.blogspot.com, sent a link to a posting he had done on September 10, 2008.
An Army Signal Corps soldier, assigned to MAAG in Taipei, sent Kent some pictures he had taken of his stay at the Grass Mountain Hostel in Yangmingshan.
This posting was familiar to me as I had read all of Kent's and Don Wiggins' (USTDC.blogspot.com) posts as a prelude to starting the TaipeiSignalArrmy blog in August of 2010.
Since my work station and apartment were both on Grass Mountain, I had taken a great interest in the area during our time there. Now my interest lies even deeper.
The first picture, however, is the CAT plane which brought him to Taipei. The Webmaster at Dawgflight.com and I have developed a place in our hearts as well as our pages of all things CAT.
So, all pictures are courtesy of George Marcy. The entire posting can be viewed by clicking HERE.
Thanks for the reminder, Kent. Funny, but 2008 seems so long ago when reading your and Don's total body of work.
Imagine how young, naive and trusting we were boarding a plane like this and fully expecting it to land on a dime at its destination.
I don't know if this was the entrance to the hostel itself, or the entrance to the sulphur bath nearby.
It was Hostel #1 when we were around in the late 1960s, but is Hostel #12 here.
