I grew up there, does that count for anything?

I'm headed back for the first time in years this summer. My wife has always been interested in seeing where I grew up, so we are taking a road trip this summer.

My reserve station was NAS Ft Worth JRB, 2000-2008.

Right after 9/11, half my unit was called up and a month later the other half. I volunteered for the first call up and spent a few months guarding alert F16s in FW. When the other half of my unit was called up, they were sent to Dyess to augment the forces in place there. One of our SNCOs came to me and asked if I wanted to go to Dyess (I had moved away from Abilene where I had grown up and left after graduating college only a few months before). I told him not just no, but hell no. He laughed and said he knew that's what I'd say.

I assume you are with the 457th FW?

When I was mobilized, for some reason they had a unit out of New Mexico bring their fighters here. I thought that odd because we had a squadron of F16s and Navy/USMC F18s on the base. How's that for using tax payer dollars?

Our fighters were parked under the overhangs with the Navy and DoD cops watching them. The alert pilots and ground crew had several trailers just behind the blast shields and enjoyed themselves immensely. They had some good cookouts while we would stand around and watch them. But we got to know some of the pilots pretty good and they'd invite us over for food. So our supervisor would run through each post and allow us to head over to them to get some grub. Good bunch of people.

Pretty much all I know of around here are a couple of lakes (Kirby and phantom) that are fun to mud around. I know there's a trail just outside of dfw thats only about 2 hours away.

Growing up, we used to go out to Kirby and wheel. It was great because it was in sort of a bowl, so you were pretty hard to see from the road. I'm not sure what it's like today though as I haven't been to Abilene in 8 or 9 years.

If you go out there, be careful for trees and stumps. Some friends of mine went through some tires (and some seriously pissed parents) wheeling out there.

I also got to Abilene recently....ish , been here for about a year now and still haven't been able to make it out to any of the lakes. sooner or later I'll make it out there, just need someone to go with (just in case) I heard that red clay can get kind of tricky.

I used to right sport bikes out that way, you can't get right up on them cause they are on private property but you can get pretty close.
