wow, not even a single tree in sight.
Deplorable living conditions otherwise, I'm sure.

In fact, we had to petition KBR for a second one because there was too much current draw and it'd frequently spike and shutdown.

My first work area was a converted shipping container... unfinished plywood floors, walls, and ceiling (maybe some insulation in there somewhere). No windows, but it did have AC!

My next work area was an office CHU (containerized housing unit... what Scooter's standing in front of) with a window overlooking the helicopter ramp where our Apaches were. BIG improvement!

CrazyCal: You're not too far off! My duty station just before deployment was Fort Sill (southwest Oklahoma)... good preparation for Afghanistan! We had a few scraggly trees on the base, but they were all dead... I called it the toothpick farm.

Come to think of it, it was while I was deployed that I got the skoolie bug... deployments make you crazy!

yes, there is most definitely a LEFT/RIGHT part of this state, terrain wise.... daylight & dark for sure!


we get people from all over motorcycle riding the mountains, and Rock Crawlers come from all over also.

this "hill" is a mile to my west

I've seen the build on that one, very cool.
That's what got me thinkin' about it and a small piece of land north.
