you take off on the 13th right?

Any chance that you know what your mail address is going to be over in Iraq or if you'll have *some* computer access? want to make sure you get a xmas care package or something you can brag to your GI buddies about!

I'm gone next Thursday, flying cramped in that single-seat for hours upon hours.

No info yet on e-mails or an address. From what I hear, mail is extremely slow, but I'll see what I can find out.

Thanks for the kind thoughts!

Relief tube or piddle pack! We used to do our business in a plastic ziplock bag and when we're over water, chuck them out the back ramp.

We didn't do it all the time. Just in emergency situations. We landed pretty often to refuel, so when you land and the aircraft is chained to the deck and being fueled you hop out and head to the nearest head (bathroom) I know Doug likes those Navy terms!
