Free Black Hawk Rides

Ok... I've been flying all over the place lately, and I've been doing most of it in Chinooks. While it's a cool ride, the view isn't all that great, unless you are positioned properly towards the rear. A Black Hawk is much cooler. The views are outstanding. Every once in a while, I actually get that voice in my head that says "Dude! You're getting paid to do this! This rules!" Typically, this voice is then beaten up by several of the other voices in my head. Like the voice I hear when I have to... never mind.

These photos do not adequately depict just how incredibly awesome it is to fly in a Black Hawk through the mountains of Afghanistan.

And... some flat stuff.

If you look really closely... you can see all the goat turds. I love this place. I think I'll move the whole family here. Flying all over Southern Afghanistan has given me a feel for what terraforming Mars might be like.

Engineers on a mission.... and yes.. that is a French Engineer on my right. It turns out that there are some cool French people after all.
