Default I'm In Kuwait

And what a fun trip it was, too I went from Anchorage to the Twin Cities, then off to Detriot , then to Virginia. That was all commercial air, btw. Then from VA, on a big a$$ plane to Ireland. The carrier was OAI (Omni Air International). Nice ride. Spent 4 hours in Ireland, had me an Irish tall & dark then I flew over to, and stayed in Guatar. Still not at my final destination After 2 day'* there, it was Kuwait, in a C-17. Outstanding!!

You know the best part? I did not loose a SINGLE piece of luggage through all that mess How cool is that?

I don't have any pictures at the moment. I have been here only 5 day'*, and the have been busy day'*, too!

I can tell you it'* hot Avg daily is ~120F . And were +7 hrs. of Eastern time zone. My job here is to escort third country nationals around base while they peform their job. Sound like fun, eh?
