Welcome Aboard... Ignore the man with the AKM there. He's here for your protection.

Oh sweet mother of God, what have I done? A blog you ask? Why? Well, there are definitely plenty of "Gun" blogs... but how many by ship Captains dropped into some of the most inhospitable places on earth?  I mean, how many bloggers (aside from you guys serving in the military) are actually surrounded by people that are annoyed by your very presence in their country and would LOVE to take you for a scenic jungle tour in return for your company paying them lots of money to bring you back?

Yup... so that's why I'm writing a blog... That and my draft copy of a travel guide for people in the oil industry got wiped out when my hard drive crashed and I learned the hard way that not paying attention when formatting a drive can be disastrous when you wipe your backup drive instead of the main drive. (OOPS!)

So sit back, pull up a spool, or hose, or something to sit on, and I'll call the canoe girls to bring the beer.  I might have a good story to share, or this may be a fantastic waste of bandwidth.  We'll see.


  1. I didn't know about the travel guide! You didn't have a copy of that backed up online anywhere? Google docs is helpful for that.

    1. Nope... well, I did. BUT... I wiped the backup drive when I didn't notice that the disk utility software wasn't seeing the laptops drive. Google Docs is now my friend. :)
