    Default Back from the field

    I just got back last night and I'm glad to see the forum rolling. 530+ members and it keeps on getting better.

    I froze my butt off over the weekend testing a SnugPack sleeping bag. Down still rules. Took the hammock down to 26*F and was still comfortable, and trained some new soldiers how to stay alive and do theirjob. Overall a good weekend.

    Nice to be back, and I'm jamed full of e-mails. I need to go hiking LOL.

    Default How about you?

    Hey Sgt. Rock... see lot's of your brothers heading out from Fort Stewart, Fort Hood, and others. What's in your future? Will your 2003 hiking be done in the sand?

    No word yet. Just keep getting told "It's not if, but when". CNN probably knows more than me LOL

    The Duetchwelle European Journal keeps claiming that "it's not likely as no evidence has been found." But maybe they're just speaking from Gerhardt Schroder's perspective.CNN doesn't seem to know enough, it's frustrating.

    Saddam takes asylum in Egypt.
    King Abdullah becomes king of Jordan AND Iraq.
    Peace is ushered in throughout the Mid-East.
    Israelis and Arabs hug and kiss.
    King Abdullah is revealed as THE BAD MAN
    and you know what happens 3.5 years later....

    Maybe Bush intends to send us over there so Saddam can shoot either his nuclear, biological, or chemical weapons at us, then say "look, see, I told you he had 'em!"
