    Thats right brothers Old SSG J is picking up roots and moving on down the road. I had decided to sell my house and start on a new one I cant wait for that. I hear they have elk on post and have stripper, Turkey, and Pheasent as well. I am over joyed to be leaving its funny though at first I was not happy but the more I looked at it I really cant find a neg in the move. I dont know about cats yet but im sure ill be finding out about the middle of Nov.

    The good news in the drop zone is much closer than the one I go to now the bad news is all they have to jump out of is a cessna 182 and the Drop zone I go to now just got a casa. I still cant wait to jump Kansas to see How it looks from the air. I cant wait to catch some big kats as well.

    Dang SSgt, All those years in the Air Force I had soldiers telling me how good I had it. They were just better than you at keeping a secret.

    Best of Luck and Godspeed

    Chuck, your going to have a great time at Ft Riley.

    A good friend of mine was a masonary contractor there many yrs ago. The stories he tells about raising his son in that area as far as sportsman recreation opputunities made me jealous.

    All the best to you.

    Chuck you take good care of yourself out there in Kansas.Never could figure why someone would want to jump out of a perfectly good airplane. I know you enjoy doing it,it's not my cup of tea.Like my feet on the ground. Anyway be careful ,enjoy your self and hope you find some good catfish spots. I'm sure you will. thank you for your service and GOD BLESS!! :0a31:

    Chuck, I believe you'll enjoy the outdoor opportunity's you'll have in that area. The deer hunting on post is supposed to be great, the elk are there but the tag is hard to get, your on the eastern edge of great pheasant hunting but the quail numbers can be great, both Milford and Tuttle have lots of public land, and between both those lakes and the Kansas river you won't have trouble finding good catfishing. Be sure and yell when you get into the "neighborhood", I'm a little over an hour down the road and would enjoy a visit.

    I know one thing. The boys at "Lost in The Woods" are going to be jealous if they have the strippers on base at Riley, instead of outside the gates. And, western Kansas looks pretty much the same from 10 feet up and 1,000 feet up. Enjoy the new assignment.

    Good luck to you and yours on the move. Don't forget about the BOC and let us know about the skydiving from there! Can you take a camera up with you?

    Love your new signature. It is absolutely true, but most people never realize it.

    Take care.
