      Long roadtrip has been long.

      Reporting to my ultimate duty station on tuesday.

      Wish I could have spent more time with my family instead of josh's but I'm just along for the ride.

      so to all my California friends hit me up sometime... I'll be In the Fresno area for the next three years when I'm not on deployment or in Fallon, Nevada.

      Expect to see and hear drunken stories from Tom and myself since we'll only be a couple hours away.

      Will report back later once I've learned our deployment schedule... they changed my orders to a different squad.

      Go VFA-97 the warhawks!

    • Everything Was Beautiful...

      9 years ago

      Capt_Ed

      I woke up this morning and lazed about in bed for a good hour or so before getting up and starting my day. I walk outside and go to the smoke deck like I always do, familiar faces yet names escape me. They're talking of a group of people, some friends of mine, that went camping last night. The topic of conversation is how everyone that went out got arrested because someone called the cops on them for being too loud.

      It was a public campsite on the beach so it wasn't some secluded backwoods retreat.

      The "humint" (that's human intelligence a.k.a. gossip) going around all morning is about the under agers that were with them being detained for the evening. Then someone mentions something about how someone else died last night. I thought "yikes, what a crazy night" not even thinking it was anyone that was in the group out camping. I get back from breakfast around 0945 and take my spot back on the smoke deck because while eating I heard that the duty section today was going to have a 1000 muster and figured it was about the humint going around and I wanted to listen in.

      Not 5 minutes later OSC Martin comes out and walks over to the smoke deck and tells me and the other guy out there to go stand next to the duty section and listen to what he has to put out. He starts talking about how he had to make an emergency trip to North Carolina last night because one of our ship mates had died last night while out camping with friends. My heart sunk, "Seaman Fisher was struck last night by a drunk driver while camping on the beach."

      One of the first friends I made at my first command fresh out of boot camp is dead.

      It's still a bit of a shock. I knew that in joining the military I would run the risk of losing friends in combat possibly. But on a Friday night, hanging out with our friends by a bonfire being run over. To North Carolina: A major fuck you is in order for allowing people to drive on your beaches. To the drunk driver: I'm glad they caught your ass, I'm glad you too are in the military and I hope you spend the rest of your days being gang raped in a brig somewhere. Apparently the driver tried to punch a cop this morning and flee but they caught him and found out he is in the National Guard. 45 years old, drunk driving on a beach. I heard he's getting premeditated vehicular manslaughter because according my other friends he had been messing with them all night driving by honking his horn trying to sling sand on them....

      Anyway... justice is served, I guess. I just keep expecting to see him walk up from behind the building when I'm on the smoke deck but it's just not going to happen... I'm helping another friend clean out his car and pack up more things. His family should be here sometime tomorrow afternoon. I think Friday they're planning on having some sort of memorial here on base for him. Some closure would be nice, today was probably the most melon-collie day I've ever had in my entire life.

      I just keep telling myself that the impact was sudden...

      ...and nothing hurt.

    • Friday Night:

      Capt_Ed

      A buddy of mine (Taylor) got a cottage for Friday and Saturday nights for a "romantic couples weekend" with his lady (Amber) and another couple we're friends with (Tommy and aubry). Myself and another mutual friends of ours (Tyler) were invited for the drinking portion of the night. So we showed up around 5 with a 12 pack each (psbtw buying beer on base is the greatest 12 beers = $8.99) so we're hanging out listening to music, drinking, enjoying life feeling like were no longer in the military. Just friends hanging out at a cottage on the beach front. It's awesome!

      So at some point Taylor pissed off the balcony into the sand.... Hilarious enough as that was, he just started laughing and said "Norwood, hahaha I'll give you $50 to go down and rub your face in the sand." Having no dignity I said "Alright." Then Tommy said "shit I'll do it for $25" but I beat him to the piss sand pile and put my face in it first. So I made $50...

      Then after the 12 packs were gone another friend showed up and invited us out for his 22nd birthday. We went to Wanna B's (a kareoke bar) where tommy, taylor, tyler and I got our pictures taken at least 5 times. I've yet to go out with these guys and not be the center of attention.

      But Saturday came with a hangover and lots of asprin... but it was worth it and something similar might happen tonight.

      Had to run a timed miled and a half this morning around 0630. Instead of doing laps around a track we just ran to a point and back... I finished like 5th at 7:18. WTF! I did my PFA around 12 and change on the track. And yesterday I did a mile in 10 on a treadmill.

      What have I learned?

      When you run make sure you run to something and not away from.... or around in circles....

      I'm now in Strike C school and two months away from getting the hell out of here. Seems like I can't help but piss people off around here. Me a jackass? Nooooo.... I guess the nice guy facade I put on when I got here has finally worn off. Buts it always fun signing on to facebook and you notice you have a few less friends than you had at the start of the day. Oh well, that'll teach me to ever call a girl, that spends 24 hours of the day with another girl, a lesbian ever again. Now I think her butch girlfriend is after my balls... and not in a good way.

      But that's what's cool about about the Navy these people are not going where I'm going... Oh yeah, I'm going to California for three years. I'm finally going to live in Cali, hahaha awesome. Welp I have to go eat, galley closes in like an hour or so and I have to study for probably the hardest test I've ever had to take.... ever.

      <3 to Geoff for telling me my password so I could back on here.

      I hate airport security... but I'm glad they're doing their job.

      So I had originally planned on checking my backpack along with my overnight bag but decided I did not want to pay $50 for two bags when apparently it's free to check just one. So I carry my backpack through security forgetting my leatherman was in there, oops... So they throw everything out find it and are like "hey, so what's up with this here, guy?" and I'm like "whooops!" So I throw all the clothes back into my backpack, go downstairs, put the leatherman in my checked bag, go back upstairs, go back through security, AND THEY CHECK MY BACKPACK AGAIN!!! So then I had to pack it all back up again. It wasn't like it was that much trouble or really that much of an inconvenience... just a hassle.

      But like I said, I'm glad they're doing their job.

      Tomorrow I'm going to be the biggest shit-bag ever and not really do much of anything. I still going going going even though this was my vaca. There are only so many hours in the day and when you have a multitude of people that want to see you multiple times it's a teeny bit stressful trying to please everyone.

      But hey guess what... my banjo is coming back with me! Hooyah! I didn't have room for recording equipment.... not that I really have the time for that but t would be cool to record drunken jams that will be happening. And yes... they will be happening. Boarding the flight in about 10 minutes so I'm cutting this off here.

      OH YEAH! My actual Christmas gifts where The Beatles remasters (in mono) and Inglourious Basterds. So, with that:

      Arebaderche, Gnatsies.

      That's pretty cool though that sucks at how much power Vista uses. I may have to look into how much I'd have to go through to back up my Vista installation then getting XP on here. I haven't had any major problems today so I don't have any reasons to get it anytime soon but never known what'll happen down the road.


      I'm just glad I was able to get Diablo 2 installed. That's about the only PC game that I even play anymore.

      Really now? What was your battery life before?

      I was able to watch most of No Country for Old Men, leave it in locked mode for two hours and finish it and still have roughly half the battery life yet but I haven't checked for sure how long the battery life is.

    • jtmitchell87 FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      I may have to keep that in mind in the future. I've had a few bugs with Vista here and there but nothing serious enough to go back to XP, yet. Course, I've only had it for going on five days. I have a lot of time to build a list of complaints.


      My only main gripe at the moment is not being able to link Media Center with my 360 completely.
