Howdy From The Mid-east

Tue Apr 29, 2003 9:41 pm

I had access to a computer off base real quick and thought I'd say howdy to the forum folk. Things here in the desert are ok, and slowing up a bit.
Weather sucks as we are having a 'shamal' or sandstorm again.

I hope to get home soon (even if by C-5) Sorry C-5 folks but my journey over on 70-451 involved breaking every landing, a new reocrd for me  Smile/happy/getting dizzy


Hope all is well, and I'll try and get some more folks to come back and join the forum.

Hey glad to see you're still alive. Hope you get back soon, perhaps even with some stories to tell. I'll get the shiner ready.

well thanks all.

I just got back to the states and Tinker yesterday, happy my home wasn't lost in the tornadoes, though many of my squadron mates were. I had an interesting route on some C-141s as a cargo courier.

Qatar airways, I was at Prince Sultan Air Base in Al Kharj. Though I weather diverted one day to Al Udeid air base in Qatar, which was very nice. I think in the future I will go back to fly out of there, since we are closing down in Saudi.

Got allot of good stories, I'll try and share in the next few weeks.
