Man of steel ( re-published from articlesbase )

Man of Steel- Walter Lukesch, Hptm

Author: Heinz Rainer
April 10th, 1975, Kaisersteinbruch Garrison, Austria

0600 a.m., sharp call : Tagwache !

Everyone's up in a second, some try to procrastinate.
15 min later, the last sleepers are thrown out of their beds.
Morning toilet, fetching breakfast by the corporals of day, 07.30 we are ready.

Standing in formation, the captain appears. He has returned from his daily 1 hour jog in the woods of the Blue quarry, the Emperors quarry, where granite was broken for the famous Vienna Ringstrasse in Imperial Austria.

When he appears, the company is quiet. No-nonsense expression, a man of steel, he won't demand more than he can deliver himself. Problem - it's a lot.

No one i have ever seen with more a will of steel, a massive amount of stamina.

One shout, plain and clear, comes out from 140 recruits : "Good morning, Herr Hauptmann !"

When the jog begins, we all sigh. The more we pant, the more he gets agile. Never ending strength, a bear, almost animalic, a real soldier.
After 1 hour, we are near exhaustion, the daily astronautic exercises start.
12 x 12 standard exercises. Close to exhaustion we make it through this morning.

With every day passing, our stamina improves, our bodies get harder and more durable.
Each muscle hurting, we have been turned into physical powerhouses.
He leads the company to the 'Pannonian plains', marching through the night, through forests, trancelike we follow, he is right ahead of us, and knows each stone in his territory. Explaining from History how Huns, Mongols and other enemies invaded these plains in the past. He shows remarkable historic knowledge in his quest to make us better soldiers.
Trained by Walter Lukesch, a statement that carries weight in our Army's chronicles.

Come , let me share the mystery of the real treasure island with you ..

the mystery surrounding the treasure island

Perhaps we all want to visit a beautiful, serene Island one day. At least I thought so.
It took many years till this wish became reality. 
This was the ultimate of all journeys :
The real treasure island of Robert Louis Stevenson 's novel.


I never, ever came across such beautiful islands. Before I come to reveal this secret,
there are a few things one should consider.

First of all, this island is not for the regular tourist. Watch the mode of transport and judge.
If you are looking for 5 star comfort - forget it. Airport - forget.

Airconditiong - natural breeze from the sea. 
What you can expect is : Endless sun, beauty, beaches, Coconuts, delicious fish, crabs, seafood.

Native traditions, exploring the island on miles of sunny beaches. 

Wilderness, Oil palms naturally grown, Baoba, Kapok, Mangos, sheer endless amounts.

This is the first part of treasure Island, tomorrow follows the second part (including food to eat, what to do and how much it costs to reach there)
