Try the M-60, 500 rounds of Ammo, 80 Lb. Alice Pack, and marching the Sergeant Majors Marathon. Only once, but it ranked right up there with the 100 mile Volks March in Germany. Practically Killed Me!!! Lol. HOOAH!!!

Still doesn't beat the view of nothin' but blue as far as the eyes can see, dolphins swimming along side us for hours on end...and watching your buddies being blown down the deck by jet exhaust...or birds taking a nose dive off the bow because the hydralics on Cat 1 failed.

No way I was doing that crap... green shirt with helium tron and WINGS!

Only did the flaptop for one tour, then back to Per Diem and hotel rooms. Someone had to do it.

Texas hasn't even shipped my stuff yet! Ridiculous!
Should have tried me, I stock all on board air parts

Can't wait to hear them. So my freaking axle shaft started a very slow drip again. Found a couple drops on my wheel this afternoon. Was hoping it was residual from after I washed it, but I don't think so. F it, I've got a laundry list of warrantable items they can fix next week. I'll take it in Friday to get started. Pissed!!!

My dad told me about that, he said he was the guy that worked for people in your position. He told me about the chains and rolling under planes?

That's how he got hurt, a plane landed on the flight deck and the landing gear exploded on impact. Threw a piston thru his shin/calf and that was the end of his Navy career. They flew him to Germany and put a steel rod in his leg.

That's why he likes you best, lol. Your the Navy daughter, I'm just the daughter

Yeah, that's right. My shaft is dripping, and not in a good way. If there's even such a thing as a good drippy shaft. Lol

Puppy-

Get there early to lock down our camp spot?




If anyone beats us there, here's a pic of what it looks like. Kind of a crappy pic...will take a better one tomorrow. When you turn onto Doran Rd., there's tunnels on the left as you drive down. You'll eventually come to a bend that goes around to the Gatekeeper and Odessa. Before you go around that bend (and on the left) there's what we call the butt crack, which is a slit going up the canyon wall.

I won't get there until around 6pm.

I dunno..up to you..you can get there, set up some stuff to claim the area, chill and have a beer. ( Not 12) lol

Maybe like 430p or 5pm ? I'm going to do my best to be there by 6pm. I'm driving there the back way: 126, 5, 14, 138/18 and onto the 15. Traffic's a bitch going 101, 134, 210 and 15. I regret it almost every time. So, going the back way tomorrow.

Haiko will be there earlier than me too. I think some of the others as well.

You know saying them California highways is like talking jibberish to me lol I was thinking I'll bring a lawn chair and naked tan so no one would be near us for a couple miles.... Mainly because of my year around long sleeve T-shirt tan.
