The average person works about 200 days per year. So your friend wrote about 13 tickets per day. Thats about 2 per hr if we factor in lunch breaks n coffee.

And we still have a budget problem?

Ok, here's the tag that I would like to post:



The actual USS ENTERPRISE (CVN65), not the mural! The sun was right behind the ship so its not the best pic.

Here's the business end from the CO's parking spot:



I was stationed on Big E as the Auxiliaries Officer from '08 to '12. I was pretty stoked when I saw the beach mural as the tag!!

I guess this can't be the actual tag though as you have to access the Naval Base then have to risk being arrested taking the pic.

Instead I'll use this one:





If you look at the mural tag shot there's a submarine in the lower left area of the picture. I started out in the Navy on an old Missle Boat (USS BENJAMIN FRANKLIN SSBN640), so I thought this one would be appropriate. I started my sea duty career on subs and finished on the Big E.

The sail is in a park right next to the oldest shipyard in the United States. The yard first opened on 1 November 1767 and has been doing ship repair ever since. The park is accessed off "the 16th Presidents Street" in Portsmouth.

Happy Hunting!

Bazinga! Good grab and new tag! Glad I could brighten someones day via tag. I was mechanized for a few years but connected when I saw this painting. The more I get away, the more I reminisce. After I passed the yards on my way back home, I figure I would need to return so I can gander at the ships some more.

Cool, I wish I would have seen the parking lot so I didn't have to drive though the park!

LOL!

That was also an old Commuter Tag site before they added the mural. Can't remember who posted, or grabbed it.

I don't think it was me in either instance, but will certainly go through my archives to see if I can find it.

One "local" could almost spit and hit that thing.
