That's funny, the ghetto cami, the US Navy is about to swap to those ya know!!! Kinda crazy, I know, but it's true! They have like 3 different versions they're testing right now, one that's normal ghetto camo, one that's digital camo, and another digital that has the slant pockets like the Marines new digital camo. I like them IMO. I'm in the Middle East right now and I've got like 5 pairs of the desert camo that I plan on wearing the shit out of once I get back to the states. Everytime I change out of uniform I change my shirt first and I'm always like "damn these pants look pimp with this shirt" but I can't wear them out in town or the locals will spot me as an American and either try to kill me or sell me fake Rolex's...

Dang it must be nice to be able to go into town without full body armor and ammo, and hope that your names not on the list to get blown up that day. I wish I had my bike here so bad, so I could take off on some of these highways around Bahgdad, and just be able to open it up... The look on Haji's face would be priceless...

God I miss the hell out of my bike...
Yeah it's nice here in Bahrain, we can do all sorts of stuff, got clubs and malls and stuff. I bought my 750 here (it's US specs too) and they've got riders from Qatar and Kuwait and Saudi that come into town on the weekends. Those guys are CRAZY! I'm sure you've seen the vid's of those crazy Saudi's in the SUV's on two wheels while that guys hangin' out the window draggin a soda can on the cement. They're NUTS!!!
Anywho, glad I'm not out there in the REAL Middle East...

I'm in the USAF and they were thining about making us wear something very similiar on our uniform change. (tiger stripped) Now they are going to go with the Army's new camy pattern.




I hated stopping in Bahrain. Been there 6 times and never left the open area where the rotater lands. All we did there was use the bathrooms, eat at the little shop, and chill out until the plan got refueled. How long is your rotation there for?
Holy crap then you don't know Bahrain! If you never left the air terminal, then it's like, going to any other major city and never leaving the airport and saying it sucked. You may have felt the heat, but you didn't see the city or anything this country has to offer. Normal rotation here is 1 year, but I extended another year 'cuz the dough here is awesome! Plus the lifestyle. I live in a two story house w/pool, pool table, dart board, fully furnished, with my dog, my bike, and my car. Labor here is cheap. For instance, I got my B16A in my Honda CRX fully rebuilt for under $200, and I'm getting it painted with house of color paints for under $500. This place is tits, but I miss Wal-Mart and Taco Bell and Wendy's too much!! (We have Burger King, McDonalds, Hardee's, Popeyes, Subway, Chili's, Bennigan's, and a few more!!!)

If you're headed out to Bahrain, you'll work at the air terminal away from the base, which kinda sucks man. It's hot as fuck outside, and you'll be spending a lot of time out in it. Also, I met a guy who worked out there that lost a TON of weight from sweating his ass off all the time, so if you need to do any of that, it'd be good to come here then!
