Our trip to Virgina was a success. No real snags or issues just a nice ride down and a little wet ride back up. It takes about 6 hours to drive from our home to BroInLaws apartment in Virgina. With the right kind of music and good person to talk to 6 hours can fly by without a hitch.
We left on Thursday night after the little woman got out of work and got there some late that night. I thought I took some more pics of his place but I didnt, but I do have some video of it. But I have yet to figure out how to get it on the puter,,,,,,but soon as i figure that one out I will have a field day.
Now while we were down there we had to go to see where he did his navy thing. He is a mechanic that works on planes, war planes. You got to love death from above!
But most military ppl are so unsmiling it isnt funny. Doug is like the werido in the group, he doesnt have a stick up his ass like most of these ppl. I know they have a serious job but would it kill you to crack a smile once in a while. The guys at the front gate were prime examples of this. We went in to see his work area but we had to turn around to get a day pass, no biggie. But after we came back in we passed by the same guy and we all waved and smiled. But nothing came from Sergent Frowny Man. Dude relax, you have a gun, your buddies behind you have bigger guns and if I did try to run you have these steal barrieres that pop up out of the ground. Its all safe and good, relax and smile ...sheesh!
After a quick tour of the hanger we went out to see his plane. We had to put these hats on, I forget what they are called. Head, ear and eye protect is a must. The military is real big on safety, which is a good sign in my book.
Here we have BroInLaw and myself about to go outside on the fighter plane parking lot. This is about as natural as we get.
That is his family name on the plane and his home town and country. Too kool!
This I found funny ass hell. It is the manual release lock for the missle. I know what it means but in my mind I saw the pilot getting out during a dog fight to get the bomb off after it got stuck. Something right out of Hot Shots!
Just a generic picture of our American might. America Fuck yeah!
The little woman and her new industrial strenght hair drier.
Here we have little man putting on his head gear, and yes he had to wear one too.
I am not sure but I think he was trying to scratch his nose here.
After the grand tour we spent the rest of the time eating, drinking and being merry. I was in complet awe of the fact you could by booze at almost every store. We went to the FoodLion but they had some refrigeration issues so we went to the Super Kmart. I found this cart out by our car so I decided to have a little handi crapper fun. The funny thing about these things is that they are put in stores to help ppl that are handi capped but the only ppl I ever see in them are fat bastards. Eating yourself into a wheel chair isnt a handicap, if you got up and walked more maybe you would still be able to see your feet.
We went out a few time for food and one of those times we went to Maz&Erma's. It was kinda like a TGIF's or AppleBee's. Here I had my first Mojito, and it was nice. Very yummy!
Here we have BroInLaw giving the baby his firt lemonaide. He liked it, even though it doesnt look like it hahahaha.
It was there in Virgina that I offically drank myself until I was tired of drinking. It isnt a resolution, just something I am going to do because I am tired of it. I will go back but for the time I am on the wagon. Lets see how long I can keep it going, so far I am 4 day dry. I have even gotten back in the gym, little sore but no biggie. I am off the cut cycle and into heavy weights, its winter time and time to bulk up. I will go back to heavy cardio in April/May. That is the time to get ready to go shirtless, but I will be getting some cardio in the little woman. She wants to get into the exercising thing. I plan to help her any way I can, since the gym will be too much of an adventure getting to, I am working on a plan of attack in the home. I will make her my first training success story!
I know its HNT but I have give numerous pics that could qualify so I will save the others I have for another post.
Have a happy week ppl, I will try to get to everyone's blog that has posted comments on mine. I am not as buisy so now I have a few mintues to surf at work hahahaha.
