Hey guys. I figured I'd stop by and say hello. I'm deployed right now for 4 Months in the middles east. Just got here about 3 days ago. I work on a KC-135 Strato Tanker. So I stay pretty busy here cuz there are alot of them. Right now we're on 12 hour days and we work 6 on 1 off... its already takin its toll on me especially since I'm jet lagged. But lucky my day off is tomorrow. thats' why I'm up so late. I'm 10 hours ahead of my normal timezone (PST) so its about 4:40AM here right now. So yeah Hopefully they don't block this site... It's a source of entertainment for me. Anyway you all have a great day. - Kyle

AHAHA there is alot of sand here so you wouldn't be far off man. Right now I think its about 110. We be very hot here.

And Congrats on the graduation man. Now you got your degree and all that jazz what are you going to do? Hopefully you'll be in the area so we could drive to charlotte one weekend and try out the drag strip.

Tbird 90 Don't worry I will :) Thx everyone for the support. It kinda sux here but I manage. They just need to have civilian wireless internet throughout the base. Other bases have it but apparently we are too cheap to get it on this base... and its like one of the richest countries in the world too :(

Keep those Strato's flyin bro, we need them bad bears to keep us flyin over those bad guys heads, although it makes my job a little tougher when they get back to the boat because of the lower flashpoint jet fuel.

Be safe and have fun. snap some pics and have a beer.

Lower flash point? JP8 has a high Flash point man. I think you're thinking of JP4... which we don't use anymore

And jon I'm trying to... You'd have more if you'd ever send me that PM ;)

I know what you mean... I email as much as I can cuz its the only thing that keeps me from going crazy here. You have it a little worse than I do... Do you guys get civilian internet there? We have base internet so the **** is monitored and alot of stuff is blocked. I had to get hitech motorsports unblocked so I could get their prices for their cams. And there isn't any wireless on this base at all.
