OK — here it is … back to the original spot …I will now continue my blog right here from now on … so I guess I’ll start with my past few days …nothing really going on .. same ol stuff…not much work going on, no casualties, damage or anything from the past few attacks…some mortars, or RPGs have been thrown at us a couple times…as far as work goes, I have picked up a couple new forklifts from the flightline area–they were flown in, we have replaced a few batteries in generators for the chow hall, fixed a hydraulic leak, moved some parts around to send out to FOBs…found a tattoo guy on our other camp–I’m gonna try to get some work done…he’s pretty booked up from what I hear …about 2 weeks out at a time…I’m going to try to book him for once a week for the rest of my tour…also, started planning a trip for June–don’t worry Ma, it’s planned for after the family reunion…first plan was Galapagos Islands, but now it’s looking like Palau is the destination…due to time constraints, $$$, and location of fellow travelers…anyhoo, that’s what’s goin on with the Dude in the Desert…OK, well, love you all, miss you all…talk to you soon



  1. Glad you’re back on…we missed you. All is well on the home front. Sounds like you’re going to cram a lot in to June. Sounds like a lot of fun, as usual for you. Hope all your plans fall in to place and that all of your friends will be able to make it. OOL
