Ludwig im a tad confused because Fargo is in ND, I would have thought they would have atlease moved to Moorhead MN to get away from ND winters.. (its across the river less then 1 mile from where im sitting right now)

Speaking of bad winters. SWMBOs boss said something interesting. You can tell its *really* cold outside by the way the snow crunches as you walk on it. When the temp is above -3F it makes a normal crunching sound. When it gets *really* cold (-10F and lower) the snow makes a squeaking noise as you walk on it. I'll have to try and get some good snow drift pics next winter, last year we had one 6 feet tall and about 40feet long down the west side of the house from the worse (worst/nastiest) snow storm of the year. Call me a masochist if you like but I like winter, moving snow with the tractor, sledding (non-motorized), 80 feet of pure cold heck between the shop and the house its like a minor victory everytime you make it to one of the buildings. But I think anybody who lives here has to like winter (or be in the military :lol: )

Sorry. It was just post Katrina thinking. The way the Red River is working away the ND side, you'll be in Minnesota in the next decade.

Personally, I always liked the squeeky snow the best, especially when you were hung over - no ice pack on the head. I used to frame houses west of the TCs in Orono. If it was cold enough when you took a whizz off the second floor, it would rattle on the frost instead of splashing.

Evan, I was thinking more of overseas bases... I remember on 9-11, when they called out code delta threat situation, locking down everything over here. housing areas, P.X., restaurants, parking lots... everything. Back then, they had soldiers on patrol for half a year and streets blocked with HMMWVs, and signs prohibiting taking photos or films of the installations.
Not being a member of the Service myself, my buds had to vouch for me everytime I walked up to their homes in the housing areas for a visit.

overseas or stateside, what's the real difference? terrorist organizations can get into either with no problem

shoot, you can find out exactly where the hangar is that stores Air Force One by looking at Andrews through Google Earth
that's not the dangerous part though, dangerous would be letting the blueprints slip out, anyone can find a good map of a base with enough digging

Let me know if you want any local information otherwise. Chris (stang200) will vouch for my offbeat take on things Australian.

Muki

Post #36 by Muki » Wed Oct 19, 2005 9:13 am

Yeah

I'm halfway through the book. Admittedly, it's been a long time since the late fifties - things have obviously changed plenty.. When our family was stationed in Carlisle, (U.S. Army War College), there was a family from Australia too, attending the same "IF" program. That was in 85 and I can't remember which part of Australia they were from.

I've always liked the accent you guys have in your speech.

Heh. Actually, this is a true story, my grandfather was arrested in Australia in late 1920's. He was a sailor on a steel sail ship Herzogin Cecilie, which was I recall the last sail ship in international freight business. Anyway. When they arrived in Australia, he thought he had had enough of the sailing profession, and escaped the ship. He made it across the land and ended up working for a sheep farmer.



Reportedly he was brought back all the way across the Australian continent in horse carriages, specially built to transport bad boys from one prison to another.

Those were the days.

But this is gettin' quite off topic. To get back on track, often when it's late evening and I'm driving back home in one of our Fords, I tend to think someone, somewhere, is doing just the same. A similar guy or gal with an interest in these fine cars.

Makes me feel like a world citizen.

On the famous "Grain Races" incl. info on Herzogin Cecilie:

http://pamir.chez.tiscali.fr/Voiliers/Classe_A/Grainwe.htm

Grandfather's Herzogin Cec. pay book from those years

http://www.kolumbus.fi/jamikko/Purjelaivat_vastakirja.htm

It was actually the 20's, not thirties. Also I had to edit the fact that it wasn't a wooden hull but steel. Well, at least it had sails and did go to Australia, heheh.

Yup, there's a huge factory near there where they make all of the cold for the entire world.
