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]

Re: O/T,....it\'s official, I\'m heading to Okinawa

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?

Re: O/T,....it\'s official, I\'m heading to Okinawa

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...

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'

Re: O/T,....it\'s official, I\'m heading to Okinawa

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]
