Blog Stuff

Forgive the growing pains of a young blog... by the time I get home, this should be in decent shape.

McCoy Photos

A handful of pictures off the "real" camera (not cell phone...) from the last month or so.

Only Two Things Come From Texas!

We've successively transitioned to spitting distance from Mexico.  Good times.  It's a bit hotter, higher up, and a lot dryer, so it's not so bad... yet.  Give it a few days and we'll be in the field. I'm sure it'll be different then.

Too Short...

Pass always is. Back at it, sporting Multicam (er... OPC) and Active Duty orders.

Speaking of cool-guy camo, the OCPs don't breath worth poop, in case you were curious.

Rockin' the .50

Familiarization fire with the M2.  Just an excuse to burn ammo really.

Home for a couple days on pass before heading down to Texas.

PT test + bruised ribs = suck.

Now off to language class. Is it time for pass yet?

Not tonight. Tonight is laundry. And wet boots.

More Training

I swear... give it a couple months and the cool stuff will show up on here. For now it's still wet Ft. McCoy.

Still, sometimes some mediocre coffee is all you need. And the ass-end of a 916 in your face all day.


It really kind of sucks the energy right out of you. Of course the lack of sleep doesn't help...

Rain started last night during NVG driving and hasn't really let up much since.

The lack of a "weekend" really throws you off from the rest of the world. It just clicked that none of the major blogs I read did much updating today because it's Saturday.

More training tomorrow. Time for sleep.


Apparently I can't find an Android Blogger app that with post photos anymore.

Stand by.

I look like I jumped in a lake. I'm a big sweaty guy, and an IOTV with plates and SAW are not light, plus ACHs don't breath well.  Add broken terrain and 80°+ temps... and well... yeah. I feel gross.
