If we were Bader-Mienhoff or Red Brigades we could have knocked off the entire Nato brass at one pop with a couple of RPG's and AK's.

Makes you realize just how incompetent the military is. Fortunately for us the terrorist types are even more incompetent.

When I was in Nam a buddy and I on a day off took all our cameras and hitchhiked up Monkey Mountain. We met two guys in a truck who were guards at the TOP SECRET Hawk missile base that no one knew about. We told them that we were photographers for the Navy Times. They took us on base and got their guard dogs out and gave us an attack demo that we dutifully photographed. Then they took us around the base and showed us the TOP SECRET Hawk missiles. We told them to keep an eye on the Navy times and we beat feet out of there. I'll bet those two guys combed through every inch of the paper for years after that. Lucky for them we weren't with the Navy Times since they might not have fared so well if the Nav had found out that they would have let two real photographers for the Navy times on an actual TOP SECRET Hawk missile base. LOL!

Maybe we can understand better now why we lost that particular war. The NVA were just slightly less incompetent than the US Nav apparently.

Let's see, right at the moment, I have a nice red bullseye with a white center; that's the burn I got in the Keys three weekends ago when I was wearing shorts and got drunk at the Tiki bar. Right below that is my "chevron" scar from when the nice old lady ran me down and squashed my calf into the pipe, and there's one more below that, but I have no memory of how it got there.

How many shrooms did y'all eat out there Cuddy? Shoot, a small handful of our Florida cowpie specials will have you trippin for 48 hours! I've heard, I mean, some guy told me and stuff.

Us ex-officer types really resent the fun you guys had.

What was your name and SN again?

Default Way too many...

"How many shrooms did y'all eat out there Cuddy? Shoot, a small handful of our Florida cowpie specials will have you trippin for 48 hours! I've heard, I mean, some guy told me and stuff."

Since most of us on the Moped expedition were from the West Coast, we knew not the quantity to consume of the mighty psylocyben (sic) schroom, so we picked about a whole 20 gallon garbage bag full, and scoffed them ALL down with luke warm Budwisers.

I personally halucinated for about 4 days, everything seemed real funny, and my face hurt from smiling too much. Fueling A7's were a real bytch, as they seemed to want to eat you, and somethines talked, what with that big intake/mouth deal.

After a few days of that, we all piled in a rented Honda Car Wagon and drove to San Juan, where we got arrested for driving down a one way street the wrong way. The cops let us go, and we crashed the Civic at speed up into some weeds off the interstate in a town called Umagao, on the way back to the base. Somehow we got the badly bent and twisted Hondacar back to the rental place at the base, and turned it in without any one noticing the front window was popped out, and held in with Scotch tape. The rest of the car looked like a beer can that had been twisted by a giant pair of hands. The hands of Mescalito, perhaps?

Good times, Spongebob, gooood times. If I had a slightly less obvious logon name I'd toss a few stories out myself. However, suffice it to say that when "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas" came out, Dr. Thompson had nothing on me and the guys I ran with up in Cocoa Beach in the '70s.

Now, the most exciting thing I'll be doing this weekend is dropping the kid at his Mom's, and changing a rear tire on Mike's Road King so he can ride up to Biketoberfest in Daytona later this week. WooHOOO!

Anybody else going to Daytona this week? Biketoberfest is a lot more fun than Bike Week, IMO. Same fun, less traffic, shorter lines.

Well, you should have been in the military in the '70's defending the frontiers of freedom and keeping the world safe for democracy.

I had the misfortune of getting popped for paraphenalia on the boat right after a change of command, I can't remember the Captains name now, I think it was Service. We used to call him "the Snake" because he had a lisp and when he'd get on the 1mc and give anouncments you could hardly understand him.

Anyway, within a week of taking over the boat some guy got mushed by a huffer and another guy got his legs cut off by a Phantom, turns out most of the flight deck crew were stoners, then here comes me an Paully to Captains Mast for having hash pipes and he figures Engineering is all hop-heads too so we get reduced in rate,I lost my 3rd class crow, $750 fine and a month in the can as a guest of the USMC and a 15 minute lisping rant about what he was going to do to me if he ever heard my name again.......

Bad timing on my part I guess

Default Stoners? On the flight deck?

Flight deck crew stoners, on the Indy? Nah, even though when I became a new brown shirt, after getting "greased" with molly b, someone dumped a couple hits of acid in my coffee. Made oiling and tieing down them F4's real "trippy" to say the least.

Then there was the time I stole that bus in Carni park. Got XO's mast, and they were all laughing so hard at my boot camp glasses (BCD's) all I got was a couple weeks restriction. "Restricted mens muster on the hanger deck..."

I didn't know airdales greased, I thought it was an Engineering tradition. We always thought you guys just squeeked.

We had a guy named Fast Eddie who was one sick puppy. He started out in the Oil Shack but got transfered down to 4 main after awhile, well we couldn't sleep with him squeeking so much so after he was there for a few weeks and we figureded he was cool we ganged him and greased him up, and he was one of the crew. Now, each pit had a signiture, pplasm already gave away our Outlaw deal but we had one greasing too, we used Blue Dykem on certain areas as well as molly and coffee grounds.

As you know, Blue Dykem don't come off for awhile and we pulled into Catania the next day. Fast Eddie liked to hang with his Oil Shack buddies and that was cool with us, they had a tradition of finding VERY hi milage sportin' gals and taking pictures of each other munching on them, as I said, a bunch of sick puppies.

Well, me and Paully and Pineapple are wandering around the gut drinking $1.00 a gallon Scicillian home brew when out comes this old gal in her underthings screaming her head off in Italian followed by Fast Eddie wearing only a tee shirt and Converse All Stars and bright blue wedding tackle flopping stiff as a plank yelling "it's not gangrene! I'm in 4 main!!!" followed by his Oil Shack buddies trying to take pictures,.....

We just fell out I swear, I never laughed so hard in my life...
