Thanks for adding that, BD - I am also interested in seeing that map by the time it makes it back to me

In order to give everyone a fair shake, I'd rather wait to re-add people to the list once they've received it for the first time. I think that's fair; can I get a consensus?

I was thinking similar, otherwise we can just readd to infinity.

I concur with that approach as it makes good sense.

It's so bent that if you rode in a straight line you'd end up back where you started, except now it's last Thursday.

THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO DONATED AND I THINK I WAS ABLE TO PASS ON SOME GOOD CRAP. THE BOX WILL BE IN THE MAIL ON MONDAY.

Mr. Ess, you did an excellent job of packing everything into the box. It will be in California some time next week.

That's a pretty pair of brake levers; looks like you got your $15.85 worth right there

Thanks for the pics - well done, sir!

By the way...

I got my follow-on orders this past Friday. I'll be heading to this baby and she's currently forward-deployed to Bahrain:



I only bring this up here because I understand from the Chief that's out there right now (whom I'll be relieving) that the Internet connection is dial-up. That's right, and what's that mean? That sometime around December 25th I'll probably be ceasing my ability to update the BOC game on page one.

Only for about 3/4 months, though. That's a story in and of itself

For now, I'll keep up with it as well as I can. You guys/gals are doing a great job keeping this going, keeping us informed and providing the pics. As we say in the Navy: Bravo Zulu

Hey Alpha, I suggest you clear coat those decals before you use them. They're real waterjet though.
