O/T,....it\'s official, I\'m heading to Okinawa
 
Next year anyways, I need to be there by July 1st,.....I'll be assigned to the 31st MEU(Marine Expeditionary Unit),.......looks like three years of no wheeling,....I guess I'll have to learn to scuba dive to pass the time away [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]images/graemlins/AR15firing.gif[/img] [img]images/graemlins/AR15firing.gif[/img] [img]images/graemlins/AR15firing.gif[/img]

Richard if you want I can take care of your TJ for you while your gone (don't want the tires to dry rot right?)... Seriously though that stinks... You do get to take the family with you though I hope? Is this going to be the last DS before retirement?

One of my buddies from here is shipping to Okinawa in about 2 weeks. He's marine infantry as well, but I can't recall the division. Daniel Melgoza is his name. Good luck over there. (I'll bet there's some good wheelin' on that island somewhere [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Congrats Rich... You will need a ricer to ride the island in style. Or, maybe you can do what Chris did....Drive to the new station. After all you have a TJ, and they can do just about anything...
Ricky...seeya...

Congrats... You may not be able to do much wheelin but I bet you will be able to put alot of money in the Jeep fund by the time you get back

Well, apparently there is wheeling on the island, it's Yota's, but it's wheelin', I'll have to hook up with these guys.

Okinawa wheelin'

Rich, you need to get you TJ over there. Spyder Canyon look great.

Sorry to "lose" you for the 3 years, but the wheeling is actually good there. Even though it's a tiny place, there's tons of spots (plus, you can probably gain access to places like CTA & NTA [img]images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]). Not to mention the outlying areas around Kadena AFB.
I was stationed at Camp Hansen in '83 and regularly drove a little 2stroke Zuki w/ hardtop and 16" NDTs out to NTA. It was a blast to wind that 3cyl up to about 5k...(sounded like a dirtbike w/ expansion chamber) and dump the clutch. [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Okinawa is really nice, kinda BFE for Japan though. Diving all over the place is very good, water is a bit cold but no worse than the east coast of the US, better vis. You can see almost as much by just snorkeling. Be carefull of how much electronics (stereo, tv, cameras) you buy while there...you get into the "going broke saving money" syndrome.

I was there in 89-90 (2nd BN 10th Marines). If I remember right the snorkeling was great and the worst wheeling was avoiding the two- wheeled rice burners.
I didn't have a POV while I was there, all my wheeling was in a M-926 wrecker.
Any way, Good Luck and don't let them convert you to rice power.
