Backpacking with my Bro.

This week well what should of been tue.- thru., i went back packing with my brother. It was really fun. We had planned to go up on the rim and do a 30 or so mile hike there. But we got up there and well it was snowing in May. Not somthing we were really expecting. So after thinking for awhile we decied to drive down to four peaks and hike to the top of Brown's peak at 7,657. I had done the hike before for scouts as a 12 year-old but I didn't quite remember how hard it was. Here are some pictures of the trip and video will be coming soon.

Thanks for the pictures. Snow in May, go figure. The view from the top was awesome, looks like the rocks were a challenge.

FIFI the only Flying B-29

My youngest brother and I in November of 2010 got to go see the only flying B-29 when it came to the valley for a few days it was very neat. There was also a B-25 and B-17 there. We got to go inside of all of them and took lots of pictures. Below are some and on a link to even more.

MH-60R Seahawk

The next part of our training we were tested on was the implantation of the MH-60R Seahawk . Up to this point we had simulated controlling the capabilities of a SH-60B which has been the work horse of the Navy since the 80's.The new "Romeo" has all the latest and greatest equipment and the tactics are slightly different. Passed the test. Just a few weeks until graduation.

RIMPAC 2012

I just came back from the largest naval exercise in the world and unlike the movie Battleship there was no aliens that attacked. The whole exercise is around the Hawaiian Islands and is a month long building up to the final week of the event where we have a big "battle". Although we did fire some 5in. rounds off and Harpoon and SM2 missiles it wasn't at another ship or at least one that had people in it. We also spent 2 port visits, about 10 days total, in Pearl Harbor on Ohau. Which was really heaven on earth I really wouldn't mind living there. I was gone from home for about 2 1/2 months and was good to come back. Here are some pics from the trip.
