    I was pretty much dead. I'm back down to my post deployment weight. Lifting heavier than deployment too. 205 on bench, only 10 pounds heavier. But still. The plate carrier thing is my tribute that I do. I've done it 4 times since my level 4 armor came in, once in boots. 111 floors each time.
    But I do this for the jobs I have. I owe it to my family and the community i serve to ensure i get home safely. Plus, it makes hunting next year much easier. Undecided between taking my 1903a3 or my garand. Putting in for a multi unit any elk.

    I work tribal... can confirm they don't look like the movies.

    For some reason ads for the FBI keep popping up on my tablet. Seems they're hiring.

    in re socks: 40+ years back, before the Russians invaded Afghanistan, there was a little weekly catalog in every sunday paper in America. one thing they sold was Afghani slipper socks. very colorful heavy socks with a leather sole sewed on. you could step on a drywall screw and live to tell the tale. you could step on a goats head.

    they must have really been from Afghanistan. I haven't seen them since MTv played music.

    Out and about today, noticed some of trees are just starting to change.
    Dogwoods and sumac are turning red and some tree is just beginning to get some yellow.

    Maybe. They're similar in weight and I'll probably be on horseback. I mean. The smart choice would be a bolt gun with an optic hah.

    I dig it.
