I've started a new French career someplace I've never flown before--The Vosges!

It's beautiful! But it's boring. First, the missions are looooong! Second, you rarely see an EA.

I've been flying for a month and I have one balloon kill. I've damaged a few Aviatiks with my Nieuport 10 C 1 Lewis small clip peashooter, but my comrades always get the credit.

I think I flew my longest WOFF mission ever. Total flying time was 130 minutes! And all for naught! Didn't see a single Boche.

My biggest worry is a system failure over those wooded mountains. Where'd I land?

What you say is true, but I think this area becomes rather "personal" because one would almost certainly know who the enemy pilots were.
On the plus side, one can almost max out the air activity here though. I only down side is almost never meeting the RFC.
Other then that I love this area too.

Better to go for an airfield that is near the front. I do regulair fly at Belfort in my MS parasol campaign, do enjoy the montains very much. At that point I can not wait for the Alps at the Italian front.

I started always going up with rockets. Still haven't taken down an Aviatik yet, but I keep trying. I have managed to get two balloons.

It's so scenic!

I love this region in WOFF, my favorite by far. And despite it being six months or more since I've been able to work on it, I am hoping to get back to the following when winter settles in here:

Robert, I fear my busy RL has caused me to become a bit of a lurker here. Hoping that will change for me.

That's more than adequate Lou. Having you lurking is like knowing the all powerful and wise spirit of a WOFF diety is just above our heads guiding us!! : kneeldown :

Do you get snow on the mountains in winter? I’m only in October.

Two books in French about the Nancy / Belfort front :

I did not read them, as I am still reading this one :

But they are in general full of information, though hard to read

Oh, my French is zero to none, so no point for me. What a pity :-(.
