actually, I find insanity to be going to a busy mall after coming back from Iraq. Life on a deployment is extremely simple. Too much stimulation after one is a bad thing

Writting home, working out, sleeping, reading, watching movies, playing board games, computers, wrestling, bsing are a few things that soldiers do to pass the time on a deployment.

So is it kinda like the rig workers who are out in the bush...(deserted area) and when they get home they just want to kick back...watch some T.V....RELAX....

I'm sorry it's probably a terrible comparisan ....but I have two sons who work on the rigs...and they've come to rely on the calmness and peace of home when they return....

The work out there is hard and dirty...a bit lonely....and they appreciate the familiarity of family and friends when they get back.....they gear up two or three days before they head out again....(mentally and phyically)but they truly love what they do....the money is good...they are learning all the time.....they meet very strange and very cool people ......all at the same time...they say "the cool guys make them feel strange...and the strange guys make them feel cool" The longer there out there ....the more they learn....the faster they're promoted....the cooler they get.

So in some instances there might be something in common with alot of the fellas who work out of town...country...where ever.

You basically get the job done .....try to keep yourself and those with you safe......and get back home to your reward.....

And believe me...the reward for you fellas/gals is worldwide respect....and admiration.

For fun:
•I blast my motorbike through the hills or down by the beach on nice sunny days
•me and the mates take our trail bikes out bush.
•I go to bars and drink to much.
•Ute musters (plenty of drinking here).
•Camping.
•Wake boarding.
•Shooting (no drinking while shooting).
•Drink some more.
•Have a barbeque with mates (drink more at the barbie).
•Smoke to many ciggies.
•Read books.
•Go four wheel driving.
--Hmmm, I think I might drink a bit to much--

I do a lot of outdoor stuff with the mates mainly. Friday and Saturday nights are spent on the town.

Looks like I'd be in the detention house if I was in the Army!!!
Oy....!

Hey....you want to read a deep book....Have you ever heard of C.S. Lewis??? This is not another geeky christian author....he very normal and "real" ......he wrote a book called "mere christianity" that was originally a radio show broadcast back during the second world war....so many people tuned in that they decided to put the script into a "book" form.....he's brilliant.....GOOD book ....but it takes a while to get into his writing style.....he puts things into prespective....not so much about "religion" but "life".....

Any way....It's Rememberance Day today.....It's so cool to see everyone wearing poppies ..........I just wanted to send a word of great thanks and appreciation to all our veterans who have paved our road to freedom.....Many many brave men and women today also deserve a great word of thanks for maintaining and keeping it that way.....May God Bless you ALL!

AussieNick........Life is good eh?
