Merritt Island hu. I can tell you were to kill scaup! (Jeremy, I swear dude........). That is a long story but anyway, I am down. And for the record, you two are a blast as well. Made two good friends that are welcome to MI anytime to stay at the place. Jimmy says hi.

Jer, if we do the miss/beer rule, we cant invite Eric because I well be straight up demolished and well need a counter that reads over 50. HA.

Devildog, I need a post bro. Are you still down? Season com'n.

Hey all,
Navy guy here but soon to be retired after a tour in Kuwait, I figure after giving 22+ years it's time.

Hey Pat, your *** better come down for the big day, I can garuntee it will be one hell of a bash.

To all those who have served and are serving, THANKS!!!!!!!
Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in
a pretty and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside,
thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming --WOW -- " What a ride!!!

Active Duty Army for 10 years. Got rear ended in a car wreck, but they allow me to stay on Active Duty as a recruiter. Not as glamorous as working on helo's, but it supports my family, and I have to admit that I do get to hunt alot more...Thanks to all past and present that served. Been stationed in TX, GA, Korea and the invasion in 03 with 3/7 Cav....in WI (home) now

Postby Flybumjosh » Wed Dec 31, 2008 7:22 pm

I'm big into flyfishing, upland, archery, and am getting into ducks, but i'm really up for anything. the pig hunting supposed to be really good down here on post. I don't have a lot of time off work but if any of ya are in the area let me know we'll get out if I can and if not I'll try to help you out with places to go as I figure the area out. good luck and happy new year.
If your across the pond right now God Speed boys. Keep your heads low and their bodies piling! We'll get together when you get back.
