    Over seas again-gctid379163

    Was planning on hitting the lake this summer for the first time in 2 years. Got sent overseas again during the summer months (what a drag) Once I get home, I have to do all the typical maint, plus add a new anchor light and replace both batteries. That and i need to get the trailer registered (1st time for that) and new registration for the boat. This is just what I am aware of that needs done. Hope I can fit it in and hit the lake before the waters get cold. If the water is cold, weather should still be nice. Looking at Sept timeframe to hit the Butte.... crossing my fingers..

    Stay safe and welcome to the BOC! Might I ask, where are you going, and who's sending you? I have kids in the military, just curious...

          Both USAF. One is E-5 F-15 crew chief at Mtn. Home, Idaho, in his 7th year. He was at Bagram last year for 6 months, he's also been to Iraq, Turkey and S. Korea. The other is E-4 in his 4th year, tests for E-5 next Monday. He's an ATC at Nellis in Las Vegas, probably won't deploy. I was in too, back in the 70s...

            I appreciate the concern Chief! I am keeping my head down.. Glad to hear you both are X AF. Thanks for serving Chief and Jeff. If you would Jeff, thank your kids for serving as well for me.

            Never did Iraq, but done Saudi Arabia, Turkey and twice to Korea, even been to Nellis once. Never been to Mtn Home.

              Stay safe, stay in touch, and when you get back, drag your boat over to Havasu, we'll show you around! What do you do, Sec Forces by chance?

                Thank you for your service and stay safe! I'll be glad to watch over the boat while you are gone

                You should pick up a http://"http://aplusmobilegraphics.c... /> BOC Burgee and fly it a couple places around Afghanistan and post some pictures. :arr I'll pay if I can figure out how to get my PayPal account linked again!

                      No worries, I'm sure you're busy... If you tow your boat over here, I'd plan on 12-14 hours. We're 300 miles from Tucson, and I'd bet you're at least that or more. I hope you do make the trip, but get home safe first...
