I'm still here... actually I moved to up there.
|I am no longer at KAF. I moved north to the Uruzgon province. I'm just outside the thriving metropolis of Tarin Kowt (that's a joke). Our little camp is attached to a big Dutch FOB. There are also a lot of Australians here as well. We've been here for about a week. The day we got here, there was a lot of fighting going on in the area, but we were not involved.|
Oh... the C130 that we hopped on to get up here was an Australian Air Force bird. I was joking with some of my young team mates about always wanting to fly on Quantis. I'm 36 and most of them are about 24-26. They just didn't get it. They had never heard of Quantis. I guess they need to start running ads again.
I'm currently living in a wooden B-hut. It's much nicer to finally have a room of my own. Tree is sharing the room with me for now. He has a room set up in another hut, but we are waiting for an AC unit to install there. My room already had an AC unit. I built a loft style bed out of some lumber yesterday. Today I'm going to build a desk under it, if I have time.
The day we got here, we saw a dog hanging out around the camp. I asked one of the guys who had been here for a while if the dog had a name. He said that he had never seen the dog and that it showed up when we did. We've been snagging food from the dutch chow hall for her. Her name is now Tina. It's a Napoleon Dynamite thing. I have some pictures of her, but our upload speed here is unbelievably slow. The download speed isn't a great either. And... the connection goes out or is cut off depending on what's going on. I'll try to get some pictures up here some how though.
I'm not going to go too into any detail about any ongoing or planned activities. So, this blog may be kind of dull for a few days, and the more days of dullness the better. I'll only talk about things that have happened, days after. You know, OPSEC.
Well... I have some work to do. Hopefully, I can get it all done quickly. I want to get that desk built.
