No, but I was a crew chief on the F-117A at Holloman AFB, NM. What made you think I was a C-130 crew chief?

Probably Mobile county, but not sure yet. I'll definitely settle for rivers. Are there any ski courses? Also got any pics?

Dog River and Fowl River are where we usually ski. Fowl River is the cleaner of the two. No courses that I'm aware of.

Are those freshwater or do they have some saltwater in them since they are near the Gulf?

Everything down here has some salt in it, even the rain. I flush every time after I get back. Boat is in good shape, but the salt has taken it's toll on the trailer. ( wish it was galv. )

Are Dog river and Fowl river in Mobile county (the part of the river where you ski)?

Dog river is in the city limits, opening into Mobile Bay, closer to the center of Mobile. Fowl river, also opening to Mobile Bay, is in Mobile County, closer to Dauphin Island. On smooth days you can venture out into the bay, but it is usually choppy. My MariStar is not a good bay boat. There are several rivers on the eastern shore, in Baldwin county.

You'll have to show my wife and I around when we get moved down there (that is if you don't mind).
