Well everyone my time has come. Today I have to go help support the warfighter’s effort. Some people go to Afghanistan, and some go to Iraq.

I get to go to Lemoore Naval Air Station.

I will be up there for 45 Days.


It sucks, I do not want to go, but the Office I work out of is now responsible to support them. I will be supporting a group of Civilians that live up there. The other guys in my Office and myself will now be rotating up there. For Years another division where I work at supported them, but now that the Navy is changing, we as an Organization have to adapt to that new philosophy.

So where I am going, they are doing a lot of inspections, repairs, and they are also installing a lot of changes on F/A-18 E and F model aircraft. Plus they handle all the emergency stuff that pops up.

Lemoore NAS is about 40 Miles south of Fresno and 30 miles west of Visalia, deep in the Central Valley. For me it will be a little over 5 hour drive if there is no traffic in LA.

I will get in here when I can, and right now I do not know that answer!

Thanks for the support, for me it will go quick, but for my wife and kid, it wont

They are letting me come home for Labor day weekend, as my son starts Kindergrden on Sept 5th. and I want to be there on his first day of school! Then I have to go back up on sept 6th.

And all this was just in case I cant get online for awhile, i did not want you all to think that i had dropped off the face of the eaerth.

I will be in Hooters in Fresno for the Charger/Raider game, I hear that a big Raider fan club frequents that place.

I will be loud, and I will be proud!!!!!!!!!!!

There is a bar on the SW corner of Clovis and Kings Canyon in Fresno that (at least used to be) is called "Checkers". It was owned by Tom Flores brother. Not sure if he still owns it.

Old time Raiders fans go in there, not the trash from today. I used to watch some games in there when I was in Fresno.

I didn't drive past it when I was up there in March, so I can't say if it's still the same, but that might be another place to scope out.

Around Blackstone Ave and Shaw Ave in Fresno there are a couple other sports bars too, and there used to be one on Shaw right between Bullard and Barstow that was real good.

Check around for something better than Hooters.

Lemoore has a city motto that is one of the biggest oxymorons in the world.

"There's more in Lemoore"

Well I am back for the 3-day weekend, my youngest starts Kindergarten on Tuesday, and they let me come home so I can be with him on his first day of school. Driving thru Los Angeles sucks, I listened to the traffic reports, but all they were saying was that a big rig crashed, and it was blocking the 405. I was on the 210; it took me an hour just to go 10 Miles. Then I got caught up in the 15 South fiasco. On the way up there, just north of Santa Clarita, they had 5 north closed; they had everyone detouring to Palmdale. Do you know what a 5-mile long, single car train looks like? I do. A Fire was burning right up against the freeway; it took me an extra 3 hours to make it.

It sucks up there. NMCI has a block, and I am not allowed to visit anywhere that is not military oriented. It has hit over 100 degrees almost everyday. I pass a 500 head dairy, every single day. When its over a 100 degrees, I don’t care Shammy, that stench sucks! But I do think of you every time I pass it.

As far as the Raider fans, they think they have won the Super Bowl with those 4 preseason victories! But I have been keeping them honest! A lot of them are trophy polishers, and a couple of them do not like it that I have been putting their team down. Oh well, I am loud and proud, and cannot wait until we kick their ass come Monday night Football!!!!


I have very limited access to anything, all I get is 30 Channels on that Hotel TV, so I am trying to keep up with all the goings on.

I do have tickets to tomorrows Padre game vs. Cincinnati.

Enjoy your brief time home with your family H8er...first day of kindergarten is a big event! I think the parents are more misty-eyed than the kids. Have fun at the Padre game.

I just made a quick down and back, too, H8ter. There was another fire today and they were diverting traffic off the 5 again. I hope you have an easy drive back up. And then that you're home for good soon.

Yes, they finish out the season in Zonieland. We are hoping they clinch at home and can celebrate before they have to leave to finish it out...
