This is the Bulge where they fought. Bastogne is about 50 miles from Theux.

thanks for the photos...now i have 2 reasons to visit belgium; always wanted to visit and drink at all the sweet belgium pubs! ...guess i could try and fill a camel back after my pub visit and keep the good times rollin...but then again i guess drinkin would end up my priority and i wouldn't get too far on the bike...anyways thanks for letting us live vicariously; belgium looks beautiful! :cheers:
