Starting another month!!!! This week sure has gone by quick, we get half a day off on Sundays so I am ready for a little down time. I am not a sleeper but these 11 hr days so do wear on you.
We watched the race Monday morning, the rain delay and the 8 1/2 time difference. JR sure did go great, I hope keeps up the momentum. Hope everyone is doing great !!! Talk to you soon.
Well another weekend is over, we work everyday but the half a day off this morning was nice. A chance of rain turning to snow tomorrow afternoon, oh boy. We will be glad when it finally warms up some. I am missing that fine Georgia weather. I hope everyone is doing good.
We had a section photo done the other day, this is one of us cutting up. I am the one pretending to drive. That's about as close to driving a real civilian vehicle as I am going to get till I get home. We are always doing something so that Polaris is always on the move somewhere around camp. Still a little cool in the mornings and evenings but it gets nice for a little while during the middle of the day.
Man we were busy all day long. I approved 2 more new members to the Georgia Forum tonight, welcome to Grizzly4x4 and GaMachinist.
Took a trip the other day to one of our outlying camps and we went thru downtown Kabul. I thought Atlanta drivers were bad, and these folks can not drive a lick. I will try and post a pic or two tomorrow. You all have a good rest of the weekend!!!!
It was a crazy year I was home, sort of home. They moved me to a unit in North Georgia and I worked there during the week and I was only home on weekends. I got this gig to come back to Afghanistan with my new unit so here I am.
Long days but usually something different everyday so I it's not so bad. I am in a great section and we work together to get stuff done. So far this week we have fixed a bobcat, a 15 yard bucket loader, a John Deere Gator and a Mercedes truck. I am also the Senior Maintenance Officer for the camps in the Kabul Capital Area. The days goes by quick so I am not complaining.
I am thinking about retiring so if I do then I will work on the truck on a regular basis.
Well the last 3 days have been horrible, Started out as misty, changed to snow and then rained for the last 2 days non stop. The helicopter landing pad looks like a swimming pool. Like a 3 acre swimming pool. Had 1/2 a day off on Sunday and ended up sleeping most of it. I won't know what to do with an entire weekend off once I get back. That's right, I'll have lots of honey do's to get completed.
Not looking like he is going to sign for troops to stay so the work load is starting to pick up getting stuff shipped out of here, days go by quick so I'm not complaining. I am taking my physical fitness test on Saturday so I can get promoted. Been going to the gym and running almost everyday, my knees are killing me. Hope everyone is doing good and talk to you soon.
All is going good here. The attack on the voting complex is not far from our Base Camp. We could hear the explosions and the gun fire. It sure didn't take long for it to show up on CNN. Hope everyone is doing good.
What a sight to see, I guess he over guesstimated the ability of his truck. That sure did look like some very deep and soupy mud. It's good to have friends when you have the wrong truck!!! Man I sure do miss the pines and scrub brush of home. The weather here the last 2 days has been pretty decent, A little nippy in the morning but pleasant most of the day, only thing now is the dust. I have been fighting an upper respiratory infection for the last week. We are 8 1/2 hours ahead so I will start an April thread tonight after work.
