Ambly's back

Well, just got back in from the conference down in Qatar.... Was nice to get out of theater for a little while.... plus the 3-beers-a-day limit was great. Enough to get you to relax but not enough for you to get stupid. Great times were had by all. Got to meet up w/ my boys from Kandahar again... last night there we sat there for hours just talkin' and b.s.'ing...

And wow, the ladies down there on R&R were quite stunning. Niiice.

Oh!!!! Pictures!!!!

I've got a few pictures of the Afghani bikes on the roads.... Just yesterday I saw 'em riding 4-long..... Seriously. 4 on a bike. I've heard of 'em doing 5 long... Now that would be a site.... I'll see if I can't get the pics posted in the next day or few....

Did you make it over to As Salayah? That's where I end up instead of actually *at* Al Udied. The MWR is off the hook man.

3-a-day... on the bases down in Qatar you're allowed 3 beers a day...

As Salayah.... Camp As Salayah... a base not too far from Doha, Qatar... it's where I typically end up going when I'm down south.

Al Udied..... Al Udied Airbase... Where we typically fly into from theater (OIF/OEF).

MWR - Moral Welfare Recreation.... Program done by the DOD for, well, moral, welfare and recreation of DOD Civilians, Contractors, and Active Duty personel.


Makes more sense there, doll?

Yeah it's kinda like how it was down at Kandahar. They Brits, Aussies, Canadians, Germans, Dutch, everyone that was there, was allowed to drink except for the Americans....

Gotta love Afghanistan.

I've got pics of the 3 up.... i saw w/ my own eyes 4 up (didn't have a chance to snap the pic)... i've "heard" of 5 up... not so sure about that one considering how chitty the bikes are around here.


As for pics. We *just* got the ISP issue resolved last night (I post from work typically when it's slow)... So you should be seeing them uploaded to my site here in the next few days... they're coming bro, just hold yer horses.
