There is my mailing address for the next 5 months.

If you want to send care packages, send items that will help us stay clean and keep our tummies full. MRE's and Galley food just won't cut it. haha Chocolates and other things that melt are not recommended cause in the summer it will reach up to 120+ during the days. Take care, shiny side up (unless you're doing a backflip, haha), and I will see you on the flip side.

When are you going to be there? Or when should I send stuff? You can expect a package from Kristin and I.

God Speed Joe. Take care of yourself. I'm making this post Sticky until you come back so it doesn't float to the bottom.

But still....DEPLOYMENTS SUCK! even though I plan on coming back with nearly $20,000. :) Most of it going to bills, trading in my CR-V for a Midsize-1/4 ton truck, and an RV. lol

Something that I was always happy to see was single serving sized Gatorade mix. Regular water gets old after a while. Small packages of goodies are better than jumbo sized things because storage space is limited and the guys sometimes need to carry all their belongings at once. If you haven't left yet, write someone on the forum once you get there and let us know what size batteries the guys in you unit will need. If we can keep them supplied with these kinds of things, it will let them use their limited funds while deployed to get other things they need when they do get a chance to see a forward exchange store.

Thanks, Dave. Kristin and I are already gathering some things together for Joe. Maybe you could give him a shout out on the ZONE, just ask for prayers. All of our troops can use as much support as possible...even if it is just moral support.

Heyhey I have internet access and quadcrazy isn't blocked yet....but there are quads over here used by the british and Dutch. So far, I've seen Kawasaki and Polaris Utes, 1 each used by contractors, Polaris Rangers, and a FLEET of CAN-AM OUTLANDERS! Reportedly they run into the mountain regions on them for smash and grab missions. I have taken a few pics, but can't load them till I get back to the states.

    • Weird Things You Didn't Know!! (But do now!)

      A shrimp's heart is in its head. The "sixth sick sheik's sixth sheep's sick" is said to be the toughest tongue twister in the English language. Rats multiply so quickly that in 18 months, two rats could have over a million descendants. Wearing headphones for just an hour will increase the bacteria in your ear by 700 times. But who is counting? If the government has no knowledge of aliens, then why does Title 14, Section 1211 of the Code of Federal Regulations, implemented on July 16 1969, make it illegal for U.S. citizens to have any contact with extraterrestrials or their vehicles? In every episode of Seinfeld there is a Superman somewhere. A duck's quack doesn't echo, and no one knows why. 23% of all photocopier faults world-wide are caused by people sitting on them and photocopying their butts. Most lipstick contains fish scales. Like fingerprints, every one's tongue print is different. If you sneeze too hard, you can fracture a rib. If you try to suppress a sneeze, you can rupture a blood vessel in your head or neck and die. If you keep your eyes open by force, they can pop out. In a study of 200,000 ostriches over a period of 80 years, no one reported a single case where an ostrich buried its head in the sand. It is physically impossible for pigs to look up into the sky. A pregnant goldfish is called a twit. More than 50% of the people in the world have never made or received a telephone call. Horses can't vomit. Butterflies taste with their feet. In 10 minutes, a hurricane releases more energy than all of the world's nuclear weapons combined. On average, 100 people choke to death on ballpoint pens every year. On average people fear spiders more than they do death. Ninety percent of New York City cabbies are recently arrived immigrants. Thirty-five percent of the people who use personal ads for dating are already married. Elephants are the only animals that can't jump. Only one person in two billion will live to be 116 or older. It's possible to lead a cow upstairs...but not downstairs. Women blink nearly twice as much as men. It's physically impossible for you to lick your elbow. The Main Library at Indiana University sinks over an inch every year because when it was built, engineers failed t o take into account the weight of all the books that would occupy the building. A snail can sleep for three years. No word in the English language rhymes with "MONTH." Our eyes are always the same size from birth, but our nose and ears ever stop growing. The electric chair was invented by a dentist. All polar bears are left handed. In ancient Egypt, priests plucked EVERY hair from their bodies, including their eyebrows and eyelashes. An ostrich's eye is bigger than its brain. TYPEWRITER is the longest word that can be made using the letters only on one row of the keyboard. "Go," is the shortest complete sentence in the English language. If Barbie were life-size, her measurements would be 39-23-33. She would stand seven feet, two inches tall. A crocodile cannot stick its tongue out. The cigarette lighter was invented before the match. Americans on average eat 18 acres of pizza every day. Almost everyone who reads this will try to lick their elbow. ________________________________________________________ I gotta admit...I tried to lick my elbow! lol

    • Please Support the Christmas Auction For BlueRibbon Coalition

      Support BRC through e-bay. BlueRibbon Coalition is excited to announce our third annual Christmas Auction to save trails and keep public lands FOR the public instead of FROM the public. The eBay bidding will start December 1st, 2011. BRC Auctioneer Del Albright said, "I'm stoked; this auction is kickin' it for public lands and waterways. Businesses from all over have donated products and goodies to make this year's auction a record-breaker." Raceline Wheels and WARN Industries started off filling the virtual storeroom shelves already. Get ready to see Raceline Monster Diamond Beadlocks and a WARN winch to start with. More partner-contributing businesses will include a long list of recognizable names. Stay tuned. BRC lists hundreds of items on eBay (as donated by supporting businesses) with all proceeds benefiting their national efforts to save trails and riding areas for our continued access. "Thanks to the vendors donations, not only is each winning bidder getting some awesome product, they are also contributing to our winning team," said Greg Mumm, Executive Director of BRC. "This annual eBay auction significantly beefs up our ability to fight back," Greg added. My shameless plug: The BlueRibbon Coalition is a national recreation group that champions responsible recreation, and encourages individual environmental stewardship. With members in all 50 states, BRC is focused on building enthusiast involvement with organizational efforts through membership, outreach, education, and collaboration among recreationists.

      New to ATVing and by the end of the summer I'll probably be heading out into some remote mountain regions for some back country trail riding, and I'm wondering just what kind of stuff/tools etc I should bring along in case of breakdowns/events etc. Short list so far includes a GPS (probably a Garmin Montana 650T), a tire repair kit, and courtesy of my Mom one of those satellite personal locator beacons, probably the ResQLink+ from ACR.
      Any other suggestions for stuff that might come in handy?

      If any of you girls are close to oklahoma, the series I am racing has added new classes for the ladies. The series is Oklahoma Hare Scramble Championship Series (OHSCS). We now have a long course that is 1.5 hours and a short course that is not as technical that runs for a half an hour. If you race or want to try it out, the first race is on March 3rd in Konawa Oklahoma. Let me know if your interested or have any questions.

      Hey, I'm new here. Just broke my winch on 4x4. It is a Cycle Country 3000 lb. A gear is broke and it looks like cheap made metal, pot metal or aluminum. Is there any place to get parts for winches. Model is an ATV-3000i. I called Cycle Country but no answer. Thanks.
