    to get my journey started to Iraq....let the good times begin.


    On a side note, Ranger and others over in theater as we speak...how accessible are 220v converters?

    You can buy power converters anywhere. Try buying stuff from the unit you're replacing, usually guys will sell their shit for cheap just to get rid of it. Stay alive man.

    .

    The guys you will be replacing will all want to sell their shit to you. Go to the PX first to get an idea on what it will cost brand-new, before you pay some Joe double what it cost him.

    A solid/dependable small black round two-outlet converter will cost $55 at the PX. I bought mine from a guy in the unit we replaced for $35. Be careful of getting the larger/fancier converters. They aren't built as tough as the one above, and they burn through their fuses fast. Also, check the power requirement area of your electronic stuff. Most laptops and a lot of the electronics you buy nowadays will take both 110 and 220 voltages, so all you'll need is a power strip with a 220 outlet plug - or just a simple US-to-European plug that you can get for almost nothing.

    Welcome to the land of the never-ending trash fire. :wavey:

    If you stop over at Shannon, Ireland, pick up a copy of The Sun (newspaper). You'll thank me for page three. ;)

    I'd rather go north than sit in that shithole country again.

    You'll hate it more if you get stuck at Ali Al Salem.

    yea...i was a FC...1121..you had me right. and thanks.....it was a tough decision knowing that i would've most likely made FCC by now...but Major retirement vs FCC/FCCS....economics wins every time.
