I know what you mean Laine, they get you over here and then pretty much work you solid until it's time to leave. Truth is though, there really isn't much to do anyway so it's just as well.

I went to the bizaar one day expecting something new, turned out it's just another cheesy flea market like back in the States full of knockoff Chinese junk. I do like to get a pizza or gyro once a week or so. Nice break from the chow halls.

In any event, I'm currently on the midnight to noon shift, so lunch is doable. Or, stop by the Golf ramp, and I'll show you the Reapers.

Right on all counts Chris. The bizzar is a joke. I havent made it to the one here yet, but Im sure its no different than Bagrams was.

We'll get a day that we can do lunch... not sure when, but it will happen! I'll PM you my Roshan number.

Does Roshan suck as much down there as it does here? I've never used such a "hit-or-miss" cell service in my life...it's almost like we're in a poor, under-developed country. Still, EVERYONE here has a cell phone...

That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

Hi Laine,
I do stop by your blog fairly regularly to keep up. You always have such a positive outlook!! Thanks for your service and for the boost you give to your fellow service men and women!!.
I will get to the LHS(closest is 125 miles) this week and see if I can't pick up a few spare parts for vapors,champs ect. So hope to get repair parts in the mail next week or so.
Thanks and Have A Great Day

Thank you Terry! I flew the Vapor today a few hours after it arrived! Trying to upload the video now. That is a fun little plane!

Thanks!

I am glad it made and in one piece to boot!!!! It is battle tested--I banged it around in the living room but kept getting abused by the ceiling fan!! Rotten fan just jumps in front anything I try to fly.
Possibly it could be pilot error Nah!! bad fan!!!
Enjoy the little rascal and get a whole bunch of new RC addicts hooked!!
You need anything let us know.
Thanks

I admit to pretty regularly watching your blog. I'm very interested to read your portrait of what it's like on the ground in Afghanistan, as well as simply respecting you greatly for putting yourself out on the line of fire like you do.
