    Two typhoons on the way.... can't let the ship get damaged.. so after about 60 hours in homeport, the ship was getting underway again this afternoon... poor bastards... i was just able to get off the brow about 5 minutes before they put it up... damn XO was hot to trot on my ass and everbody else staying behind, but thankfully the CO found out he was being asinine and ordered all "oprhan wharf rats" off the ship to support its mission out to sea for the next few days.

    hmm, i didn't see a single smiling face all day today. morale was as widespread as support for the troops at a joan baez singalong rally...

    Yes, much better to be on land than being tossed around like a toy out to sea....

    Nato, once again, 'Thanks for your Service', I'm assuming you are still safely on land. My heart goes out to your unlucky crew, may they stay safe from typhoons and other dangers.

    Thank you, I'm sure they most appreciate it.

    Land is nice.
