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.

Re: Bored in Afghanistan and lost in Bagram

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.
