Title: Kyrgyzstan is the happiest place in the world!
Post by: wzl46 on March 12, 2010, 09:28:57 PM
I am on my way home after 11 1/2 months in Afghanistan!  It has been a long (almost) year without beer, home brewing, and lots of other stuff.  I placed an order last week with NB for enough ingredients to keep me busy for a few weeks at least. 

To make up for the last year, I am planning a 4 or 5 week road trip around the USA checking out mountain biking and brew pubs around the country.  I'll be asking for some ideas when the time gets closer.  See you all soon.

Hopefully you'll stop by Germany on the way home and make up for some lost time.

Welcome home!!

While you have been stomping around in the desert in some God-forsaken-country I have been enjoying the good life. Enjoying good home brew, the companionship of Ms. Tubercle and the safety and security of a good night's sleep. None of this is my doing though. I owe it all to you and your compatriots.

 Thanks is not enough but it's all I have.....

Sounds like you are going to need a brew stand.

He's coming back home, so "here here" is actually appropriate.

Thank you for your service. It is truly appreciated, but not said enough.

As I like to say, I have the second best job in the world.  I won't be able to move up a notch until Hugh Hefner vacates his position.  ;)
Bill, I can get you those measurements I neglected to provide in about 3 or 4 days.

I will take you up on that.  I have a good friend who works at a skydiving operation just outside Boise, and that is one of the few definite destinations on my road trip.
