Surely something dumber has come up since my apparent forgetfulness for STDs and doctor visits.

Yes, it's true. I'm stuck in the snae right now. I don't have much time on the net, and I just got here about two hours ago. I'm staying somewhere in the middle of nowhere, and there isn't much to do here but stare at the sand. I'll try to take some pictures of the sand for y'all, but I don't know if I will be able to upload them onto the computer I'm using ($6 an hour to use).

Surprisingly enough, there's actually decent food here. There's a small store in our sand village that has cigarettes. Oh, and we have beer, NA beer. Other than that, nothing too exciting. My unit and I roll out for Iraq in two weeks from here.

Have to run for now, just thought I'd pop in and say hello. Won't be on again for a few days, so if anyone posts anything, it'll be a bit before I see it.

Good luck, and don't get shot or execute any unarmed insurgents.

But mainly don't get shot or blown up.

There's a surprisingly large amount of UN peacekeepers and Japanese soldiers here today. This post is huge, but most of it is empty sandlots where they are planning on building something or just leaving vacant for some reason.

When we flew we took a somewhat odd route. We left Ft. Campbell (after waiting on a plane that had hydraulic failures to be repaired) and headed up to Gander, Newfoundland. I must say, you canadian bastards have expensive cigarettes. Fucking $7.35 a pack is too much.

From there we flew to Budapest, Hungary (or whatever country it is actually in). We sat on the plane there twiddling our thumbs hoping for a smoke break, but alas, there was not one.

Five hours later we were in Kuwait City. I was hopped up on muscle relaxers for back pain when they decided to throw me on baggage detail. Two hours later we were inprocessing and I finally got to have a cigarette after about 14 hours since my last one in a bar in Gander. After all that excitment we left the inprocessing post to drive up some Kuwaiti highway, only to turn around and drive an hour in the exact opposite direction. I have no idea where they think we were going, but it wasn't anywhere fast.

Finally, last night we got in about 9pm here at Camp Virginia. After finding tents and unloading baggage, we took off to eat a surprisingly decent meal and drink an near beer. On the way back we spotted this internet cafe and phone center, both 24 hours. Phone calls from here are about $20 US for 20 minutes, fucking ridiculous. Email ahoy, essentially.

Well, I have to be getting back to my tent. Oh, and Amphytrite, the sand castle building is left to whomever pisses off our Sergeant Major. So, yeah, I'll be building one by tomorrow evening.

Aside from all that, thanks for all the good wishes and I'll be back on later.

I don't smoke, but from what I understand those are the cheap ones. More like $9 - 10. But like I said I don't smoke so this has no bearing on my day to day life.

Anyway, that sounds like quite the trip.

Quoted from Dante:

I wish I could. On a related note, there was a bazaar here the other day where you could purchase camel rides for $5 apiece.

The past few days have been rather eventful. We're not leaving for Iraq for another two weeks now, because training was pushed back a bit again. We've been doing bunker drills all day for when a mortar attack randomly starts. Also, I found out today that I will definitely be living in a trailer for the next 11 to 17 months in Iraq. Where I'm going, my company has priority, due to the fact that I work with the batallion, so I get the good living quarters.

Another interesting side note, the military toilet paper here is the equivalent of wiping your ass with sand paper. This is some serious John Wayne toilet paper that I'm talking about; Rough, tough, and won't take shit off anything. It's not like the food helps much, seeing as how it runs right through the bowel system. I've never shit so much in one day in my entire life. The good news is, there's now a miniature replica of the Great Pyramid in portajohn 234.

I've been reading like crazy lately. I've managed to finally finish 1984 and Stranger Than Fiction in the past two days. I'm working on Catch 22 at the moment. Other than that, I'm damn glad I left my laptop and bought an mp3 player. The sand here gets into everything, and I mean everything. It's fucking ridiculous. On the plus side, it makes for more difficult running, so when I do PT I wind up sweating my ass off, burning off all the hamburgers I've been putting away lately.

Well, that's about it for now. Tomorrow is an off-day thanks to the holiday. Not like it really matters, I'm just going to read my books anyhow.

One last random bit of news, I've been put on the batallion NBC R&S team (Nuclear, Biological, and Chemical Recon and Security). Basically that means I get to go do random tests when there is the threat of an NBC attack. Nothing special, but worth mentioning.

Anyhow, got to run. Back to the tent for a change of clothes and a desperately needed shower.
