Well...time to come home...

I think its about that time to be heading back home to good'ol South Carolina... South Korea doesn't seem to have the same "stuff" ya kno.

But I was happy to find a decent Barbeque joint in town (owner is from Alabama) that had some good pulled pork and chicken sandwiches plus the ribs... ouhh and the hushpuppies...

Oh and the 8mos. in a hotel is enough for me. 'Course every 90days I had to headhome for about 8-days... that seemed like a teaser...

So I'm home on Sun. snagging the new battery for the truck and waiting on the rest of the goodies for the truck later that week.


Anyhow... enough of my rambling...


What's the longest period of time you guys spent in a hotel?
What's the longest period of time anyone has had to work out of the country?

I run into a lot of soldiers and PCS-ers and TDY-ers coming and going here in SK...not to mention I'm about a block or two from the Osan US AirForce base.

Ack!... living @/leaving a hotel is just as bad as moving from a house.

Ya don't know how much "Crap" you have till you have to re-pack it in a pair of suitcases and a single carry-on.

I think I'll be pushing the 50# weight limit.... (per piece)
Dang...

Not homeeeee yet....
I'm boarding at 10a.m. tomorrow (my Sunday)

which is...uhm...8-9 p.m. your Sat.

The hotel I'm staying at is under contract from the DOD, to accept the "overflow" that the Bases' hotel(s) can't handle when it is exercise/"special circumstances" time.

Thanx tho...

sheesh, nothing but fun. ha ha. I spent the afternoon improvising a repair so's my truck would have defrost this winter. The main flapper door hinge is broke in the plenum. Got it fixed (within reason) so I can drive the truck on a cold winter morning without everything fogging up.
Everything still on for next saturday?
