Brian- I don't know how I missed it but I didn't know you were going over there. Come back ASAP, safely.

Aren't you a moderator? I thought there was a rule about shipping mods to foreign countries.

Check in if and when you get a chance, OK? Let us know if you need anything.

Be safe and well.

Thank you for all that you do for this great country. As many Americans forget the fact that we are fighting a war in Iraq and the rest of the middle east, I will pray for you and the well being of yourself and the rest of the troops fighting to protect our freedom!

Hello everyone...

As JimK mentioned, I did make it to my 'location' safely. There was no memo because I was trying to keep it quiet. Not sure who let the cat out of the bag, but have a hunch. I told a handful of folks and blabbed to someone at the last moment who must have spread it around...

Anyway, we are doing good stuff here and things are going well. I appreciate all the prayers and kind thoughts. Please keep my poor wife who has the harder job of maintaining a household and two kids, in my stead, in your prayers.

For those of you who have been in contact with my wife and provided some support, thanks. People keep asking me if they can do something, etc. If your hell bent on doing something, I need a new boat and my kids have college funds, otherwise get with East Tx Skier or BCamp7 and they can point you in the right direction.

Take care guys....

Hello Everyone,

Just wanted to drop a short posting and let everyone know I'm still breathing. I'm over 50% of the way through on this trip and should be getting home in early May. Things are going well, but I am ready to get home to see my wife and kids. Looks like we will be heading to Lake Douglas, TN in early June for a week. If anyone has any good info about the lake I'd love to hear it. Hopefully by then, my dealer and friend (Jim@BAWS), will have found me a boat since I sold mine prior to making the trip across the pond.

Hope all is well with everyone and your families.

God Bless,

This was captured off an MRAP approximately 25 minutes south of where I was by one of the battalions we worked with now and again. I saw this about 6 weeks ago and low and behold it is on YouTube.

Additionally, this clip is an excellent metaphor for the current state or Iraq. The fat kid represents the Shi'as and the rest of the kids are the other groups: Sunnis, Kurds, Turkoman, Assryians, etc. Everybody fighting each other for American hand outs.
