Re: Leaving...


Well, I have a moment to touch the internet again. Yay!
I've been so busy that a break feels like a foreign substance.


Some of the more awesome things Ive done...

I saw tanks fire...
CLICKME ALSOCLICKME

Went on a convoy in blackout conditions, which means NO LIGHTS in the middle of the night. you get to look through crappy night vision scope attached to your Kevlar on one eye and have to drive a Humvee on mud slick roads.

It looks like this....

Wish I could send some of the guys I work with to do your job for a week or two. Would put some things in perspective....

Re: Leaving...


Aaaand I'm back!

Well, that was a lot more fun than I thought it would be (I was expecting to hate every living moment). Physically and mentally exhausting, tedious, boring, sleep depriving and could have been condensed to 2 weeks if they organized better... but I digress. I am but a corporal and it does as its told.

Rating: 5/10 would be forced to do again.



It was good training for those of us who dont get to actually go to the field often and learn some things outside your designated job (I am a Data Systems Tech).
Plus, someone on the high end is a nerd, because at the end, when our 4 day 'war' came (4 days spent utilizing all the training we got to achieve mission objectives), our mission brief stated we were Dagobah being invaded by Korriban.
Which made 8+ hour convoys so much more fun to daydream in.


(And yes I changed my user name again...)

Welcome to a world of heroic fantasy. Nerthus is a realm where a rebirth of chivalry is caught between the decadence of crumbling civilizations, and the barbaric brutality of the savage wilds. It is a realm where spiritual forces are everywhere, where the bold may quest into realms of dream or of death. It is a realm where an ancient evil wakes, and with it, the dead no longer sleep quietly in their graves.
