    just got back from my first patrol on uss maine...she's a different pig than uss tennessee...at any rate, wasn't bad, but jeez have their been some changes on here, most notable being JT getting a ritter and gard moving away from bass central...man, what else did i miss?? oh yeah, i got a sweet mtd 535 (the green one adrian garcia had) like a week after i left...man, does it suck having a new bass at home and not being there to check it out! the suffering! just wanted you guys to know i'm back and all is well...we didn't nuke anyone...this time... heheheheheheh
  2. Holy CRAP! How's it goin?

    You havn't really missed much... except the waxing episode with JT, but it's still a pretty touchy subject...

    Welcome back, pix of the bass or you'll be unceremoniously strung up by your toes.

    Our neighbors are really getting on my nerves; what kind of paper work do I need to fill out, or can I just call-in?

    eh, just a phone call would do...1-800-MkV-BOMB...dial in the coordinates for our beautiful secretary and wait about 4 hours...it takes a few moments to transmit the message, create the target package and deliver the weapons to the target...we guarantee 100% accuracy to greater than 4000 nautical miles and if you aren't satisfied, the next TRIDENT II ballistic missile is yours free...about pics of the bass, i'll hook you up in a bit...it seems that you have to have a password to get onto adrians' site now...another thing that has changed... :D

    My luck, I'd be like one degree off on the coordinates, poof there goes the Sadowsky. Welcome back to TB, anyone who can serve the country and play an MTD is OK in my book.

    Hi Dave!

    Good to see you back on TB. I was just reading through some of your old posts a couple weeks ago, wondering what you were up to.
