    Now were at Naval Air Station Mayport, FL 3 weeks. This place blows compared to San Diego.

    No FL is just a pit stop we're doing a change of command and a lot of maintaince. My deployment is CD Ops in South America.

    Underway crew checking in :wavey:

    We've been at sea 3 weeks for our first work up and I'm glad to be heading home in a few days. Lots of flying and LOTS of GQ this time out. Hell, we're at MOPP 2 right now :io:

    We just got done with Ultra S hella GQ's 2 a week for 2 months. Our bird was broke for a while they had to make up 100 hours from the previous month. Needless to say flight ops all fucking day and night. I didn't get a lot of sleep :hsd:.

    What's a DLQ? I assume you work on helos, are you on a destroyer? They just announced a dual down drill for us tonight, no AC for a few hours :hsd:

    Best definition I have is bounces on the flight deck with practice approaches.

    Dam. What sucks for me is that I did 16 months on my ship before doing a deployment. Training cycle was rough. We were gone 3 weeks out of every month. Deployment is cake though.

    All FFG's doing Counter Drug Ops out of Naval Base San Diego stop in Mayport, FL.

    We delivered 12 tons of coke to Key West Coast Guard Base and handed it over to the DEA. I have an awesome picture of me infront of 12 tons. I'll post that this weekend.

    I hope they put me with an HSL or send me to and Amphib big decks scare me .:noes:
