Sailor Returned from the Sea
Just got back from the most ardious sea assignment ever (4 whole days.... ). I rode the USS Carl Vinson from Bremerton WA down to San Diego. Wow... what a ride. It was my first time at sea....and I loved it. Missed you guys though Wasn't much on sleeping in those little tiny ass racks however. Working out when a ship is in 20 ft seas, even a ship as big as an aircraft carrier is a challenge. Ship rolling...trying to balance the dumbells. Don't think I would be brave enough to try free squats when that was going on.
It was all good.
Bama....I read your post about trying to get busy with me at my desk...lol. You missed your chance Buddy.
Well.................gotta get the day going.
Check with you later.....

Ahh Geez, I can't resist this....
The mighty USS Carl Vinson was hit three times...let's just say that again THREE times buy our own HMAS Onslow at Rimpac jsut a few years ago.
BTW Onslow was a 30 something year old submarine, crewed by a group of Aussies!!!
No wonder you yanks are so happy when we join in the fight!!!

Now you know why I used to bitch and whine when I had to be out at sea longer than 2 weeks.... worst was when my Team would have to go by sub....to bad ya missed the squadron coming in... I swear it's a rush just watching them boys land and take off. Glad to have ya back darlin...

That's badass. My best friend was stationed on the Carl S. Vinson for a couple of years out of Washington. He's a civilian now, but that was his boat. Small world. RR

Small world but a big ass boat ;-).

I don't think I could do a sub. Too small for me. I had a hard enough time with the rack.
Good to be back to AR.

I was on a US carrier in 2001 for about six weeks.
It was hell on earth, every morning they were waking people up with YMCA, or singing in the Navy!
I even ordered my men to shower by bricks of 5, one shower, 4 were armed and guarded him!
