There is an old saying – If it is not raining, it is not training. Well, this morning we had it in spades. 1AD is doing their deployment prep. Part of that is a rather large exercise out in the field. Lucky me, I get to play for a couple of weeks.
I am not going to Iraq, only to bay billeting and a secured working area for the next couple of weeks. I know a lot of the people, many have worked for me at various assignments over the years. There are beds in buildings rather than tents, there is a DFAC open twice a day, with MREs only for lunch. I can get on the computer, but pictures will be limited.
The 300+ km to here was in the pouring rain, complete with construction zones and lots of trucks.
To make my day, the SGT at the Heidelberg Mail Room let me bail out my packages prior to hitting the road. It would be fair to say that they were all for me. And contained either audio books or yarn. I have more than enough to keep my happy for a couple of weeks.
I will try to keep you posted. Most importantly, I am looking forward to new June patterns from a couple of KALs.
