    Oh or McGuire huh? Probably better off at Travis. I think Eglin has -ONE- C5 for testing. Although you have a ton of options for overseas... I would probably go with Aviano, Ramstein, or Rota if I were you...

    I've already been to Rota, Ramstein isn't too bad and Aviano doesn't have C-5/C-17s. I mean, I'm a MSgt so I can be sent to ANY base that has heavy's (cargo/bombers). I'm not looking for eastcoast AT ALL. I could get to Hurlburt or Eglin easily since I am also MC-130P/H/E qualified and I am already in AFSOC (which sucks) LOL. I'd like to get back to Europe but we'll see.

    Why not Minot?! Travis would work out pretty good for the Bay area types. You'd be an asset to the bay area discus group I'm sure, and Kenny is just down the way

    Yeah, that would be great! I'll know more by the summer.

    Don't pick on Minot if you haven't been there, I spent 3 years there and wanted to stay longer. I enjoyed the 4 day work weeks and the fishing and hunting.

    Travis is nice but I been retired from the A.F for 14 years now so things change. I been to Wright-Patterson and didn't care for it. Too many uppity civilians.

    LOL, everybody has horror stories but you are right, its all about what you make of the place. It still won't ever make it on my dream sheet.

    ...its all about what you make of the place.
    True statement. For me, I'm not much of an outdoorsman and I can't stand the snow so Minot wouldn't be the place for me. Don't take this wrong Eddie, but I hope I don't see you at Edwards. I have a similar feeling to George's about the civilians there, except I think they're all retarded. Like I said before, if I ever went back AD, Singapore would be the top of my list!

    I'll throw it on the list but its not available to me. Being an E-7, 2A5X1, I am limited to certain overseas locations. I'll be happy to get back to Europe. My luck, I'll get Yokota (a puddle jump away). LOL

    Yeah, being an F-16 pointy head limited my choices when I was in so I feel you on that.

    Make all you military time good times because I miss it, the people, traveling, seeing the world. For me I got to see a lot of place's as a K-Loader mechanic traveling with that monster filling the back of a C-130 or a 141 going to different spots in the world. I finally retired out of Luke in Arizona and enjoy the weather here. The dry heat makes it a nice place to raise my discus. It looks like we may be getting the new fighters here I believe it is the F-35

    Heard lots of great things about Luke, not so much the base but the location. I guess each individual workcenter has its pluses and its negatives.

    simplydiscus.com without Eddie; will not be simplydiscus.com
    MFK member - Either way.....Wow, youre so overstocked and underfiltered. They need at least a 4000 gallon tank with a million times turnover rate for filtration along with 300% daily w/c's. Make sure to treat with prime and you'll be gold!.
