i'm in just about the same boat as you are. i'm headin to japan around the end of june or 1st of july and will be back around the 1st of january. so at least i will be home for the last month of season. all my time will be spent on leave in ky shooting mallards in the swamps and divers on ky lake. should be a great end of the season, but just way to short. good luck with your tour to korea.
