Well, 'Scooter', 'Crash', 'Lil Dave', has made it to Kuwait. After a 7hr flight from Hunter AAF, I arrived in Germany around 0400 EST, and after a 3hr wait, we boarded and left for Kuwait. Germany was cool. Got to see my first 5 EU bill, as well as a real-life German Sniper. ;) And when leaving Germany, I got to sit up in the cockpit with the pilot/co-pilot as we took off. That was friggin awesome. I took some nice pics of it and should have them up within a day or so. After another grueling 6hr flight (in which I was able to watch Harry Potter OOTP and Ugly Betty and ... (drawing a blank)... We got into kuwait around 4 this morning and after unloading bags, having a safety brief and finding a cot to sleep on, I was able to get some real food in me (Cheese & Pepperoni Pizza, courtesy of Sgt Brian Boutin ;). ) I went to bed around 0530 and was woken up around 1015. I then shaved and got ready and was told that we didnt have anything on the training schedule for today. I then went to the Chow Hall (DFAC), and had a nice lunch (Meatloaf, Potato Salad, Carrots, noodles w/ gravy, A coke and Mt Dew.) Also, I have saved some of my used bottles during my trip (One coke bottle from Germany and a water bottle from Kuwait.) Unfortunately the only net access is through a Net Cafe (too much bandwidth was tied up for wireless...) Well, my time is about up on this pc. But I will be stopping by the PX to pick up a power strip and power converter so that if and when they get wireless back up, I can take advantage of the skype phone and my other electronics. Much love to all the family and Chelsey. I love you so much and miss you dearly and know that your soldier is safe (and sweaty) and will talk to you when I can. I LOVE YOU!!
