  • Greetings from the Sandpit!

    Hello guys,

    Its quite amazing that im able to get on the internet out here. Im at the British base Camp Bastion at the moment. Thought i would drop you a line, thanks for the support it really helps. Food is bad here, eating the same s**t everyday, water is tepid, my equipment feels like its getting heavier each day and the temperature hits 135F

    I will be back on June 9th !!

    Joe...I really don't think you should be putting that information out on the internet ? Keep yer head down.
    If it 'ain't broken........ Don't try to mend it !

      No no its perfectly fine, i mentioned no actual mission activity, no names, no locations (villages/towns, bases are fine) and no special forces information.

      I will try my best

            OK just for perspective.

            Think of what "they" are eating?

            Yeah that .. and drawing flies too?
