I was talking to FlyNavy about my enlisted time...and speaking of life's journey...this is a chapter.

Here's some from that era--and those of you who know my stories of Armando (he was a special mentor, LOL), he's the dark green guy in the loaders hatch:

Around what Year is that Bill. A military guy would know by the equipment, but I never served.

The first is 87, the last two are 92 I believe. First is an M48A5 and the second two are M60A3 w/TTS (Tank Thermal Sights)...GREAT tank that last one.

Hey Mobill,

Since we are on this, and not a highjack.

But I spent the better part of my wasted youth on those iron contraptions. Here I am in Asia many-many years ago



Finished out in 93 rode these too, also an Armor Instructor



Of all em I loved the A3 the best! Great TTS !

I knew we had something in common

So, CJ, how's that for more pix?

I'll do another run.

Great Pics Bill, Thanks for taking us along


Here's a couple of pics for CJ

Sam that is supercool!! It's frosty. I can't believe it, stuff like that amazes me, the community was always pretty small, it's REALLY small now.

Jorge, thanks--glad you came along. :) Really glad--you know you're the guy that started it all for me here and over on SSYSO.

So, Tom, whaddya think about another tour for Mrs CJ and Sofi? That would be cool.

Some more shots...ones Mark's camera captured that I don't think made it in this thread:



Love this shot of this interaction--Mark and I, without really talking about it--felt that the human landscapes-- theirs and our own combined...that those encounters were more important than any other thing we did...


Mark, I'm sorry that I made you jump so much...love you man...






This was virtually the end of our riding together. Mark's machine shit the bed again soon after this pass...I'm grateful that he captured so much:






Probably my favorite MC shot of the trip:





And so it ended just down the hill, I believe, from here....and it was time for a long tow--a truck ride, a solo ride...
Taglangla....

I am.

How'd you tell?

I saw that pic in Mark's album, the one of me next to that sign--and I said, "I'm ready to go back".
