Sounds like we may have a bacon-off in the works.

Oven bacon is pretty awesome. You don't have to monitor and flip it, you can fix the rest of breakfast. 300/40, 350/25, something like that, just see what gives it to you how you like it. Put it on that oven cooker thing you never use with the slots, and line the drip pan with aluminum foil. Presto cleanup.

And fancy bacon >>> supermarket bacon because no water.

Heathen. You save bacon grease, because it is liquid gold.

Contrary to how awesome it sounds, don't deep fry bacon.

Texture/crunch is awesome, but the flavor leaks out somehow.

Also, break a bunch of eggs and put them in a Nalgene bottle. They keep just fine for a few days, and you don't have to mess with those flimsy yellow cartons.
Bacon and eggs on the trail is pure win.

Tried the water bacon thing this weekend. It was horrible. It tasted like pork rinds. All of the flavor was gone. I was a sad pony.

Just placed a phone order yesterday from Nueske's for their 5lb sampler pack of smoked bacon. I got a free 1lb of something because it was my first order. It shipped the same day too. My buddy should have it in 2 days and I'm sure he won't waste any time.

I've got a couple weeks left of cruise. This one has sucked. If I knew how to do anything else, I'd consider getting out, but I'm too senior... it's been that bad. At least I was tax-free for 5 months!

Been there. Are you up for shore duty soon?
As much as deployments suck sometimes, getting out and learning how to do something else as an adult sucks more.

This.

Every once in awhile, when I think my job sucks, I only have to think about the "great jobs" civilian side. There are too many backstabbing sons-of-bitches in the real world for a selfless introvert like myself to get anywhere. I'll retire from this job one day, and start a company doing something, probably construction related or similar, and the only positions available to extroverts will be sales jobs.

And I'll force them to work out of offices, with closed doors. They don't get the luxury of cubicles to chat across. If they want to talk to someone, it had better be a client.

This job in Feb is going to open a large number of doors for me when I get out. At the completion of these next orders, I'll only have 2 yrs left... retired O-4 w/ kids in 9th and 7th grades. Wife HOPEFULLY OMG OMG WTF AWESOME will be complete with Nurse Anesthetist License and I can sit on my *** forever and ever and ever, coach teams, build ****, shoot guns, drink good rum, and make sure my girls grow up ready to take the world by the *****...

If the wife decides to stick with regular nursing, I'll need to get a job after the Navy (a "real" job)... Hawkeye simulator instructor is #1, followed closely by an aviation safety job.

I'll tellya what though, I'm just shy of 40 and run a 10 miler weekly, no health problems at all, awesome healthy kids, good friends, guaranteed retirement check in my near future, and a hot wife who is great in the sack. Someday she'll let me get another toy car and I'll have an actual reason for sticking around on this website. I'm still dumbfounded that I haven't owned a Miata going on 6 years now and still managed about 2000 posts here in that amount of time. Maybe my life sucks after all.
