View Full Version : Finally back to the land of the big PX

2008-04-11, 18:27
Made it back a couple of days ago.

Nice to have internet that isnt slow as molasses in Afghanistan in January.

Dont have to walk half a block over crushed rock to get to the showers/bathroom.
(dont have to shower with #$% TCNs around either)

Have my own appartment with my own fridge with my own beer in it. Oh damn it, where did it go?

Super big thanks to Keith(blackbishop)!!! I know that he's not on here much but I had to say it somewhere.

Big thanks to everyone else, you know who you are.

Rock - I'm going to have to do some reasearch and read about your little ruck march. Was it as fun as the 12 milers you used to do? You've done 800 more miles than most of the people in the US!

Iceman, and anyone else for that matter - If you are ever in the Fayetteville/Fort Bragg, NC area stop on by. First round is on me.

Wow, time sure flies when you are having fun, huh!? JT, what is your plan now? Hopefully some well deserved relaxation and time to plan some fun.

I will take you up on that brewski if I ever get back that way again.... Same goes out here. I will buy.

For any of you that don't know, Jimtanker is a true aficionado of beer. All beer. Probably even warm flat beer if it is free! Set up the time and place and he will be there!

Welcome home!

I went out to a party last night and got totally trashed. Made a complete fool of myself and slept in my car last night.

I love being back!!!!!

Welcome back man. We need to plan a hiker get together. I've been thinking we need to have an "At Large" American Legion Post for hikers.

Just about any weekend would be good for me over the next few months. Just as long as its within a day's drive.

I figured you would like to come out to the AT/BMT and do some unwinding. I'm sitting here with a screwed up ankle so the near future is good for me too.

Oh yea, you probably forgot all that stuff by now TOP.

I need an address and need to know when the beer will be cold. LOL

Can you get over to Hot Springs this weekend?

2008-04-23, 16:32
Not a chance this weekend Top. Sorry. We just went through BAR and they have a jump scheduled for us. I was thinking of taking the kids to a water park if its nice the weekend after. I do want to get out there but kids come first. You know how it is.
