Goin home from Kandahar for 2 weeks!

Hey folks, tomorrow morning I should be jumping on a plane on my way home to Tennessee for 2 weeks! After 7 long months, its finally my turn.
Cant wait to see the family, sleep in a real bed, eat real food, fly a couple planes and just relax some!

Is it supposed to do that...?
Hi Laine, glad you are heading home for a break, just wanted to thank you for the cool blog, I stumbled on it one day while looking for something else and was still reading your old stuff 45 minutes later. Nice that you have RC to help keep you sane and stave off missing home a little. I have a friend on his fourth tour over there with the RCD (Royal Canadian Dragoons) who drives one of our LAV 3's. His pictures look a lot like yours, dry dusty and brown. I'm usually an RC boat guy but have just bought a HZ Super Cub LP and am looking forward to learning to fly. Word is you need lots of packing tape and CA glue to stay airborn for the first while. Please keep on blogging, I always read your stuff and enjoy seeing you guys at work. I have had a couple of good long flights in our Griffon (Huey) while on training exercises with open doors at night in the side seats and man was that a blast, noisy as hell but what a ride! Hooked on helos ever since... One day if you're ever bored search "Canadian Rangers 4CRPG" to find out about my unit.

Thanks guys. We will have some fun over the next two weeks Im sure. The wife and kids are pretty excited, and so am I.

In a day or two, I'll get to wake up in my own bed, next to a beautiful woman, without smelling the Kandahar poop pond, I can shower in my own shower, and make some pancakes, bacon and eggs for my family for breakfast. Gonna be a great two weeks!

Looks like you and my son are just going to pass each other. He got his feet sandy on Wednesday and will be heading out in the field this week.

Enjoy your time home. Fly some RC if you get a chance.

Hey guys, Im in Shannon, Ireland on the way home. Stoppin here for an hour or so to refuel on the way back to the good old USA. Lucky for me they have free wireless at the airport!

As for flying some RC while Im home, I have my DX7 in my carry on! So I'll get at least a few flights in while Im there.

Right now, I just cant wait to get home and see the family. Of course, a shower would be a bonus also!

See ya'll soon and thanks for the comments!
