Terrain looks barren enough to me, but anyway, beautiful pics.
I wonder how do you get your internet fix over there? Is it satellite?

Hey Mike! Thanks for posting in my blog! You da man!
Yeah, me and the guys bought a satellite internet setup. 23 of us are running off of it. Kinda expensive, but well worth it! Internet in my room is sweeeeeet! Its really nice to be able to chat with the wife and kids every day too. Much better than I had it over in Iraq both times.

As for that pass, well, thats an easy one... you should see the one we are going to tomorrow!!!! INSANE! The tops of the canyon will be more than 2500 feet above us... 80 knots max speed through them. Much fun! Cant say much else about it yet... hopefully I'll have a chance to get some more nice pics.

Thanks guys.

No problem Hotty girl! The cities are not much to look at though! Mostly all mud houses... some rich folks acctually have paint on their house!

Hug and kiss the kids for me. Love you guys.

Looks awfully barren over there, be safe, and keep up the good work. By the way, I was there when you finally got your big bird airborne, it was pretty impressive!

Really appreciate two things from your end.
1. Serving the Country
2. The wonderful pics.

I'm sad for you being away from the family though.

I wish the news pics we see here in the USA were as what you're sending. It's so nice to not have to see just the destruction. Keep the pics coming. Stay safe & warm..

Hey Laine,

great pic's man! keep em comin! Big thanks for all you guy's do for us! Several of my buddies have been there and back a few times, they are ANG's. Stay safe and keep your head in the game, things happen too fast.

hey, my son was commissioned in the ANG at AMS in TN back in Nov 07, waiting on a UPT slot.
