Well, if you see me post up a Tour De Flatsville ride, this is what the largest part of the ride is.

JOE, Thank You for your service and sacrifices.

Battle Assembly? what happen to "UTA" Unit Training Assembly or Weekend Drill? Gotta love it. GFT

What MOS or Branch are you serving in?

Thanks for the thanks. It's actually been a shitty year, family-wise. I've been on duty during my son's birthday, my daughter's birthday, my wife's birthday, my 20th wedding anniversary, my daughter's first day of kindergarden, and I'm not even deployed.

Battle Assembly is one of the new buzz words to make us feel better about ourselves. Another example is "Warrior-Citizen." Oh, and Soldier is capitalized, now. I think someone had Marine-envy.

My enlisted MOS was 25S, Satellite Communications System Operator-Maintainer. I'm now a Chief Warrant Officer 2 and my MOS is Network Management Technician.

Man, I always wanted to ride in a Huey. There's nothing like the sound of a huey's rotor... I'd stop what I was doing every time I'd hear that sound and watch until it was outta sight.

Thanks for the tip. I just happen to be riding near Atlanta in 1 month. However, I have found it pretty hard to find BAD BBQ in GA.

Here you go...

I'm a former 12B(Combat Engineer) from the 216th Engineer BN Company B Portsmouth Oho OH-ARNG.....Our Platonn was a Sapper Platonn for a short while and we used to deploy in Huey's Man I loved flying "map of the earth" with the doors open and ready for combat. It was a total rush!

We used to have a saying...."There are only two kinds of soldiers in the military, those who are Combat Engineers, and those who wanna be"

Well, you've obviously never hung out with a team of cable dogs on TDY!
The mp's said they'd never actually had to take anyone OFF of the goal post before, and could someone please remove the cable reel truck from the forty yard line? Now? There may or may not have been a please in there, but I'll give them the benefit of the doubt.

MP's have no sense of humor They tend to get real excited when we pick up their HUMVEE with a 10K forklift

I've run into some bad ones, but for the most part they've been good folks. We really got into some fun with the mp's on Ft. Hood. We strung a winch line a couple hundred yards to where two of them sat everynight along one of the roads where we were running cable. One of them knew were going to it, but the younger guy didn't. He'd been instrumental in a prank or two on us, so we let them park, waited 15 minutes, then we slid the clevis through their pintle hook, (as close to American Graffiti as I'll ever get) fired up the reel truck, and pulled them five hundred feet through the bushes. "Evening, sergeant. Here's the Limburger you left in the intake of our manhole ventilator yesterday." I miss that stuff... Not the Limburger.

need tires mounted

Can anyone recommend a reasonably priced place to get my tires mounted. I ordered them off Jake Wilson so a lot of places don't even want to do it if I don't buy tires from them. A place I've used several times before in Marysville wants $40 each that eats up a lot of the savings from ordering off the web.
I'm in Mechanicsburg so any place from Columbus / Springfield / Marysville / Bellefontaine

Thanks

I can spoon them on this evening. I'm off rt56 so real close. I can meet you at the old grocery store and do it at your house if you have tools to get tire off the bike and a center stand to hold it up.

I work 2nd shift Luke. But if you have any time over the weekend I might take you up on that offer. I have all the tools we'd need. I actually did put the last rear tire on myself, but it took me about 5 hours. Much harder than on my old 20" stingray when I was a kid. I would like to get better at doing it myself so maybe a little tutoring from someone with experience would help. Plus from what I get from reading on here You're the size of an oak tree so that could help too. Planning the big Alaska trip next summer so being able to spoon one off and on in a reasonable time would be a good idea.
I keep looking for bikes in any of the driveways when I go past Broadgauge but so far I haven't seen any.
So if you do have any free time this weekend that would be great, but if you have things going on no biggie.

I've decided Tar Hollow will be a bit wet this weekend for a good ride so I be available. Maybe we could do some local riding. Anyone else interested in trying to meet up for weekend riding around Western Columbus and Springfield areas this weekend?
