Well, since my last post, I have been sorta busy. By the way California sucks, at least the part I am in which is the desert. They have upgraded NTC since the last time I was here which was around '99. We basically did much of nothing for the first week we were here but draw vehicles and do a bunch of reports. When we first got here, it wasnt that hot out and the desert was awfully green. But give it a few days and it was stinkin hot out again. When we finally were moving out into "the Box" as they call NTC, I sat in my vehicle which had no doors or roof on it ( it was a stripped humvee) for 9 hours in the sun till it was our turn to move to our new home in the desert. Let's say it was uneventful and very very hot out. I got alittle sunburnt on my nose but that it. I must of drank like 5 gallons of water that day and I was still pissing yellow in case ya'll were wondering. Yesterday it hit 100 degrees at mid day right as I was bedding down cuz I am on night shift out here, which I wont complain. Less bullshit at night, same amount of work. Since its only me and Matt on at night, we are going to take turns being in charge, tonites my turn. So I have him outside in the dark digging foxholes. Just kidding, but you would not believe how friggin windy it can get out here in the middle of nowhere. Its unbelievable. Well anyway, I am counting down till I get home for a few days and I am down till something like 25 days and a wake up but I could be off cuz I am dead tired since its hard to sleep in triple digit heat in a tent with no a/c. So until next time.
