I can't remember now. His ex-wife was a nuke mechanic, and he was a nuke electrician. He's still using his skills with his career, but the ex-wife is adrift and living with mom and dad.

In addition to in-rate skills you definitely pick up some serious work ethic and quality control in that program which is an asset for anything you do afterwards. Perfection is expected and not much less is tolerated.

I hope you enjoyed your Tiger Cruise. A lot of work goes into it but, no matter how much people complain about it, they love showing off their stuff to guests! My dad was on every one of mine (5 in total) and had a good time even if it was just hanging out in the Chief's Mess drinking a cup of coffee.

Ahh. Best part of Lariat 40/20/40 seats, on date night the wife gets to sit right next to you instead of arms length apart in buckets

Agreed one of the reasons I like my bench seat. Going to be drinking lots of coffee at work in the morning. Been up since 11:30 with a sick 1.5 year old. It is 2am and I don't see getting back to sleep anytime soon. My alarm clock is set for 5.

Ah man, I feel sorry for you. I have had a few of those nights. They make the next day pretty tough.

Mornin' fellas. It's Friiiiiiday. Our relocate to Texas and my new job is going great. It's nice to look back up north and see those REALLY cold temps and know I don't have to deal with them. The only plans this weekend are lots of Lonestar and taking it easy. I may tinker around the truck some and start getting the Kia ready to trade, but that's about it. It'll be nice to have a weekend with nothing to do.

Happy weekend everyone!

I learned my work ethic as a Fire Control Tech in the Navy, and I can really see how the self-driven aim for perfection has helped my career - and my company's bottom line.

My poor son was dragged through every crack and crevice of the ship that I was allowed to see. We visited everything from the monster drive shafts aft, to the top of the flight deck tower, to the fo'c'sle and chain locker.

There's a little story about the rough seas we had during my trip. His bunk was low, aft, and amidship... great place to be in a bunk during quartering seas. The centrifugal force was running amok down there, and while many would probably be heaving over the side - I just felt like I was getting a whole body massage while I slept. Probably the best night of sleep in my whole life.

One of the funnest experience was working my way to the chain locker. The seas were pitching us pretty good, so it was like riding a demonic elevator set to bounce between the 10th floor and basement non-stop. I had to grab the hand rail on the stairs to keep my feet planted while on the way down, then on the way back up - I had to pause for a moment and I felt my jowls sag down. What a cool sensation.

I would imagine it's much like being in a helicopter and feeling the G's as the pilot hovers while gaining altitude without having enough visual reference to give the same input your body feels because you're over the ocean.

It was the weirdest feeling I ever experienced. It just suddenly feels like gravity has increased because there is no visual perception of moving.

I get enough of that alone in an extended 40' boom with "Ooops... wrong switch".
