Totally forgot I had a pair of Koflach boot with foam liners in the mid 80's. Great fitting boot, no nonsense. Lasted three season before cracking across the instep. The usual thing with my boots. My sister-in-law bought the same boot the next week. Keeping up with the Jones or sibling rivalry? Probably a little bit of each.
Koflach 411 with foam liner (both pairs). Liquid carbo lunch. Val-d'Isère, 1983.
I remembered Mamie's 7 oz bottle of Coke cost more than our beers.
I remember expensive Cokes in Europe. First time there was Berlin in 1996. My wife and I both like Diet Coke. We looked all over and finally found just 1 can (as if it were on display) on the shelf of a small grocery store. I think it cost around $5 in US dollars. It was warm and Europeans don't generally drink it on ice. On the flight home my wife was so excited to get a Diet Coke on ice she accidentally sloshed some of it on the passenger next to her.
