    Rains caused a landslide at the entrance to our parking garage on base. Safety first so they sealed off the area and trapped the vehicles in the garage overnight. Good thing I have a backup bike.

    In Kisarazu for a program management review. Subaru has the contract to perform depot level maintenance on USMC MV-22’s in this area of operations. Checking out the two inducted birds.

    Tell them I know how to fix that hillside.

    Hopefully with Subaru doing maintenance on those planes they'll be more reliable.
    They've killed more Marines than the Taliban.

    Official Job Offer made and accepted. I report to Naval Surface Warfare Center Dahlgren Division on 19 JAN 2020 to assume the duties as the Chief of the Contracting Office. Shenanigans in Japan sadly coming to an end. But not yet. Heading to Osaka for the long Veteran's Day weekend. Next installment might be Vacommuter's Shenanigans in the Northern Neck.....

    Never mind the Island of Cats - stop by here to visit the house of cats.... well it's no really so bad these days with the cat headcount holding at 5.

    If you have room and can find a nice little Honda CL90 in need of TLC.....
