    Aside from the fact its humid as nuts (tyndall) and u don't stop sweating, its not half bad. We did the exercise in 14 hours, not too bad considering some of the crews were slightly undermanned. Any1 else had the plasure of being here?

    We didn't have mosquitoes to be honest, it was mostly midges. I'm actually a pest manager; our surveys for larvae n adults came up really low.

    I actually got coined for job proficiency, aptitude and being able to work well with the other shops (they tasked me out non stop). :cool:

    It could possibly be the lack of fresh water.

    We actually had a lot of rain on tues/wed. There were tons of places for them to breed

    Im actually leaving on Monday for CTS in Germany...Went to the flag twice when I was at Eglin... Much shorter there, wonder why its so much longer in Germany

    not looking forward to the 10 hour coach bus ride from england....and my 3 hour drive to Mildenhall
    2nd time I went we were undermanned which kinda sucked and we were with canuck army so they were worthless

    It takes about 10 days for a mosquito to become an adult. Before last week, there was a long drought in Florida. The fires in Georgia and Florida are a result of that drought.

    It is so nice when I go back home and I am not covered in mosquitos.
    Here in Biloxi, about a year after the storm, they had not started their mosquito spraying so I could walk from my house to my car at 0600 and have at least two mosquitos on me. Sometimes they would make it into the car with me, so I would have to swat them as I drove.
