  1. It has those sweet retractable wheels, makes me feel like I'm a coastie flying the HH65 Dolphin. And that video was horrible. I mean they were unique in playing the video game angle, but the CGi background ruined it.
  2. I hope you're right, because I'd like for the sept board to get here quickly.
  3. Yeah, that's what I was thinking... Living in the barracks, but getting BAH for the family. What are the barracks like?
  4. http://usmilitary.about.com/od/housingallowance/l/blbahrules.htm See Rule 29 on the chart of that link. Thoughts? I hope that WOFT qualifies, as it is expensive to live in Northern VA, and that's where my family is staying while I'm at Rucker.
  5. What about if you're married, but your family stays back home and doesn't move to Rucker. Can you still get BAH for your home record, if you stay on base? Or would you be up the creek with regards to paying for housing back home, since Rucker is a PCS? I'm thinking along the lines of an unaccompanied remote (i.e. Korea). Anyone know anything about that option?
  6. My girl runs long distance and has a sticker on the back of the car that says "my sport is your sports punishment". I always laugh when I read it bc I find zero enjoyment in running a long way.
  7. I love the periscope on the head tied with red panties to help with eye dominance.
  8. Apaches = tennis Yep, I see the correlation :-)
  9. 58s (changed from 64s). It's a tie between hockey and racing motorcycles (sportbikes, MotoGP,etc)
  10. Do we need to change the title to "best movie that includes flying of some sort"? Blackhawk Down was primarily MOUT tactics, but the title includes a helicopter, its based on a helicopter crashing and it contains lots of scenes with birds flying and operating. Let's no split hairs here.
  11. I had listed Blackhawk down as my #2. But then I took out my list when I realized that I was way more detailed with why I picked them. I even mentioned the little birds and the sychronized take off to "voodoo child".
  12. You're right. When Lindsey visited DC, she met up with d10 and I, and had Yuengling for the first time. I guess she liked it enough I haven't been west of the mississippi (and buying beer) frequently enough to speak towards it's rarity, but it's common in VA.
  13. Hell yeah Lindsey!!! That video is awesome. It's hard to find good, clear, recent footage from in the cabin (of any helicopter really). It cool to see it from that perspective for a while.
  14. I guess that depends on your opinion of an "A**hole", but I never got that vibe. Of course I will naturally be a bit sour towards anyone who gets selected before me (even if you HAVE been applying for 6 years). I'll also send you a congratulatory Yuengling.
