Re: Bored in Afghanistan and lost in Bagram

I stumbled upon your post and can say i am in the same boat, there is only so much reading and excercise one can do in a day. I wish i would have thought of bringing my fly tying materials though. It wasn't until i got here until i thought of it. I guess some of my stuff sent but it takes close to a month for mail to get here and we dont have long to go. One thing that kept me occupied for awhile was trapping things on the fob- gophers, mice, etc. I would see the different ways i could catch critters, copper wire doesn't work on mice like i thought it would and afghani mice aren't too fond of peanut butter like the ones back home. think the next target will be cats. I have spent quite a bit of time on this site and others learning how to use a mil dot system and learning more about long distance shooting. I wish you a safe deployment, keep your head down up there in BAF.

    When I was in Iraq, I worked out like a mad man, planned a rifle build. I agree writing a journal and writing actual letters works great.

    "Let glorious acts more glorious acts inspire,
    And catch from breast to breast the noble fire!
    On valour's side the odds of combat lie,
    The brave live glorious, or lamented die;" - Iliad, Book V
