Yep, I'm outta here! Peace!



















haha, fooled you.

... a little? :p hehe

Not for long. Sunday I will be leaving for Virginia to board upon a US Navy Aircraft Carrier! I'll be leaving (for my school; Naval JROTC) on a coach bus at 8AM from my high school, for a blistering 8 hour drive to the naval base way down south, there. (nope, keeeep going :D)

anyways, as we depart at 8PM that evening, we will make our 4 day voyage to New York harbor for the Fleet Week celebration in New York (that's right, I get to miss 3 days of school \m/ ^.^ \m/ ). Afterwords, I'll be bumming a ride from my friend and make the 20 minute trip back to town :smile:, where I'll probably spend the day at McDonalds or some place talking about the trip.

Dude, I'm like so exited.

We're going to be making rounds in helicopters and possibly retired F16 fighter jets :D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D. Not everyone will get a chance, it's like a raffle. So idk, maybe I'll get lucky.

Anyway, I'm so freaked for this trip!

Have fun while I'm gone, landlubbers!

I was totally expecting it to say "And thanks for all the fish."

Good luck with your 'raffle', a ride in a fighter jet sounds pretty elite. ^_^

We're leaving from my high school on sunday, taking a coach bus TO Virginia.
From Norfolk Virginia, we're hopping aboard an Aircraft Carrier, which will make it's voyage FROM Virginia TO New York harbor. So, yeah, it's a round trip xD.

Quite complicated just to get to see New York's harbor from the sea side. Why not just take the Staten Island Ferry - same result! :tongueout:

Either way, have fun and don't leave a puddle on deck! *salutes*

Fleet Week is a big deal in New York. Ships from just about every navy in the world have visited, and some private training academies as well. Some years a lot of tall ships (sailing ships from the old days) have been here too.

Sailors from the ships get on the morning TV shows in their shore uniforms.

MM3, enjoy your time aboard and (hopefully) your exciting flights in aircraft! Try to avoid seasickness (my own downfall on my time shipboard)
