    Your ol' buddies at AP&T are distributing the electrons in Slana (with the help of a federal grant), so take a good look at all the lights... okay, both of them... as you drive up the highway - that's your tax dollars at work. :huh

    Seems this thread was "highjacked" by the SS......that would be a bunch of anti-government sourdough sympathsizers. :rofl :rofl

    Hey! Has anyone seen the author of this thread?:huh Haven't seen any new posts in a while from Tommy Boy.

    Hey Hillsiders, may want to check in on our fellow Gruver and Buell officianado.:lol3

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't that bike coming to the Harley shop? If so, I think that makes it joint property of Katoomer and Big Bad Bob right...:lol3 :lol3 :lol3 :lol3 :lol3

    Merry Christmas Larry!!! Keep your head down.

    Wow! I'm overwhelmed....:cry That was awesome!:eek1 :D :D :D Looks like a wonderful turnout at movie night! Thanks AKPhotog! I sure wished I could be there.

    Working here Christmas Eve......I work 1/2 day on Christmas so I'll get the afternoon off and then feast a little tomorrow night. I'll be serving dinner to the folks here....working the chow line. Trying to make the best of it....it's a lot of hard work and long hours but the time is passing quickly.

    I hear Anchortown is getting a bunch of snow!!!:clap :clap :clap I'm glad and hope that all you "sled heads" out there are getting geared up for some winter riding.

    Thanks again, I can't believe how many people were at the movie!

    Back attacha everyone!.....Merry Christmas!:D :D

    Yeah Larry, it was a good turn out.

    And yes we're getting a ton of snow!! YAY!! Many many happy people here!

    It's funny how you hear in the news about how so many folks down south complain about too much snow and up here everyone I talk to says it can't snow too much!! Of course I do work and live amongst many extemely avid outdoor recreational enthusiasts. I love it!

    Larry, what Robert did was great. It was pretty darned neat to have you as a focal point for all of us to wish a very Merry Christmas to. Like I said, LOTS of good energy comin your way!

    Take care, buddy. Mark H.

    Again, I'm overwhelmed :cry I was so excited to see everyone ....I had to show the people I work with all my ADV pals back in Alaska! They thought it was great too! We are getting a TON of snow here too! Big fat flakes have been coming down all Christmas Eve here in Kabul! Everyone is getting ready for a much deserved R&R tomorrow.

    BBB-take it easy big buddy, that steed was built for go not for show. We'll have to work a little deal :deal on the storage fees. I'll trade you a warm dry storage area for a little rip, snort, and a roost next summer!:clap :clap

    Thanks for working with Fite to help me get my baby back to the Great White North! It's times like this that make me really homesick. BUT, I work with some very dedicated people here too. I guess it's all about being grateful for what you have and where you have it. Here is a picture taken of me a few minutes ago....I know I'm not much to look at but I wanted you guys to see the White Christmas we are having here!

    Take care, I sure have some great friends!:clap :clap

    Nice shot.
    You look marvelous!

    Not one bit of stress showing, and the snow makes that white Santa beard of yours almost disappear....:D

    Congrats on the Super endo you got headin north.

    The dual headlight set up for that bike is awesome.

    Jackie is still missing with our weather forecasts, 18" was suggested, 6" fell. That might have been a male influenced measurement criteria.:lol3

    Oh well,,,, be safe my friend, WE all wish you a safe & happy deployment.

    See you soon!:clap

    Thanks Gus Gus, Griz and all ADV posters. It snowed about 8 inches over night. It's Christmas day here and a very white one at that. I woke this morning to the sound of our Christmas dinner.....a Turkey was gobbling in the courtyard. Our house keepers Hakim and Nassar were preparing a pot of hot water to de-frock? sp? or de-feather our poor avian friend. I took a video which I can't seem to download from my camera along with a bunch of still shots. It's probably not to be shared on ADV. :huh :evil These Afghans approach these type of things with a ritualistic efficiency that's a little disconcerting.:evil :eek1 I think I'll eat Christmas dinner at the DFAC today.....:huh

    I truly appreciate the kind wishes and enjoying hearing from all of you. Have a merry Christmas and I'll post some pictures when I can.
