Default been a while, stuck in korea, but i have good news

i have been in korea since january and so far only seen 2 bonnies over here. but i got the news yesterday in writing (which we all know is a must in order to beleive it). I'm going back to the states and should be there at the end of sept or the first of oct. oh and for the ones who remember me, the wife got her mini-van. it'* a chrysler town & country but she didn't trade either of the cars in on it. so now i have 3 car payments of an excess of 1200.00 a month total. Anyone looking for a good clean, dependable 01 chevy malibu. she wants me to keep the malibu and sell the bonny seeing how the malibu is newer. But the only way i'll sell it is if I buy the new GXP or a GTO. She didn't like that statement needless to say. So does anyone live out near FT Lewis Washington or am i going to be somewhere'* out of reach yet agian and if so where is the closest track. Also a friend of mine is new to the site and probably will have alot of questions, he owns a 98 GP GTP and is interested in moding also. Ofcourse this site was my first suggestion.

Great to hear from you.


Newer doesn't mean better, I'd hold onto that 2000 SSEi rather than a Malibu of any year.

Driverjohn and I aren't far from Ft Lewis. In fact, I've been up there several times for mini-meets, when DrJay still was based there.

We'll get together.

I'm in araea 1 around uijeubu (we-jon-boo). If I had money to have fun on, i guess it could be done. Considering the cabs are expensive and a jack and coke is 6.00, i pretty much stay on post and party. Just can't wait til i get back to the states. Now the wife is saying she wants to stay in north carolina because she doesn't want to keep moving the kids to different schools and she has a good point, but i want to be able to see my kids cause I don't know when I'm going to iraq agian and i've already been away from them this long (since january). Does me asking her to move to ft lewis sound like a bad idea and am i just being selfish? She is actually due in on wednesday here in korea so we can spend some time together w/out the kids for the first time in 9 yrs and i think i'm going to open my mouth and ruin her stay, but this is a real big issue to me. Normally i don't discuss my personal life online, but i'm really worried about this. Either way, the bonny is going to be with me, but I'd rather have my kids there. The bonny is like mine and my sons car cause everything that has been done to it, he has been there for also helping me turn the wrench'*. So doing anything with the bonny wouldn't feel the same. If i had known moving her home with her parents while i'm here was going to make her want to stay i would have never agreed to it.
