A Bahnhof too Far

A friendly place!

We were on field maneuvers in southern Germany and this weekday evening I was off duty. I knew that there was a bahnhof a couple of miles away; so I thought that I would hike down there, have a few beers, and relax. I found the railroad tracks just outside our camp and began to walk along them in search of my destination. The area was heavily forested, and darkness was approaching; but it wasn’t long before I found the station. It was warm inside and there was a friendly atmosphere so I stayed for an hour or so.
I needed to get back before bed-check at midnight so I decided that it was time to get going. My spirits were high as I headed back down the railroad tracks in the direction that I had come. It wasn’t long before I came to a spur leading off in another direction. ” Where did that come from? I didn’t see that before!” I had no idea which one that I came in on; I just started off on the right. “But wait,was this the way?” I was somewhat panicked; it was pretty dark, and I was confused,turning back several times before continuing on. Shortly I came to another spur; now I was really lost and it was getting perilously close to midnight!
About to give up hope of ever finding my way; off in the distance I saw a faint light shining through a break in trees. I left the tracks and headed cross country; stumbling through the forest I finally came upon our camp, making it just before the bewitching hour.
