Oh, and since your in cali don't forget about the emissions bullshit you'll have to deal with. I think bellengineering.net is the only place to get CARB approved kits.

Will you sand grubbing monkeys clean up after yourselves? Wipe your feet, you keep bringing sand onto our planes.

That's because winning the GWOT requires going outside the wire, Pen2.

Just remember who you call in when you need a danger-close air strike.
I was there once in the sky watching you folk cozy in my sweatbox of a 130.

I should know better than to use Google Translate for Arabic.

It was supposed to say "Owned." As in: you owned Pen2 (in the sense of "oh, snap.")

I figured as much, Joe. Google Translate doesn't work very well for Eastern languages, as you might imagine. The right way, FWIW, might be "malook".. but that's very literal since the concept of "pwn3d" doesn't translate well.

Anyway.

See you RC-S/KAF/SpB dudes soon.

lol I lied, I hate 130s, and unfortunately both my old DAFSC and my new one deal with them in their own way.

for my first year and a quarter as a 1A7... I can say I really have a special loathing for Lackland.

Unfortunately after my first and only year as "active duty" I wanted to finish school, since I really really really hated Kandahar, and so badly wanted to finish my ASE certification.

Now I am a reservist 2T2, nice and unbothered on the flightline, however I still step onto more, spaceous but stinky, humid musky 130s once and a while, but I deal with C17s and C5s mostly now. However I do still find myself in a ton of activated training and tours/minideployments. But at least I am no longer sitting very bored out of my mind and sweaty hot in a gunship no more (VICTORY!!)


My first two years was a lesson learned: Find yourself to be under good NCOs and Officers.
