It's nearly that time...

Fellas, I may be finally returning to a boat. The GREENEVILLE looks to be the one, though my orders won't be cut until after 20 July.

Would that make me the only one here still on a boat?

And I have to wonder if HDR has evolved enough for me to blog from "deep" :)

Rob, Like the Mail Buoy system that preceded it I have word that our government has been working secretly on an oceanic Blog-Buoy system. Perhaps it will be operational for your upcoming deployment.

Once you are deployed we at Ultraquite will be waiting flash traffic from our new deep sea correspondent. Best of luck on your new assignment. -LL

I second that, Rob. All the best to you in your latest assignments.

Thanks, fellas...in talks with the detailer, it's looking now like it will be Greeneville or Olympia. Greeneville is currently in SRA, but will be out of the yard in a few months...Oly will be coming in for refueling overhaul later in the year.

He's going to cut my orders after the CPO board results come out (I'm one of a very, very few nuke ET1's out there, and two others in the detailing window are strong candidates for CPO, so he wants to wait on all of us until the picture comes clearer).

I'll likely be transferring at the end of July or within the first two weeks of August. Obviously I can't say much on prospective ship schedules, but I need some sea time to get requaled...and I don't know if (after my first boat being new construction) I'm up for a long refueling overhaul. Y'all know how shipyard life is...though for RC Div (getting all new gear) a lot of it is "dead time", but shipyard still sucks. Doubly so for standing EDPO, which is likely where I'd be. Too much RADCON for my taste.

I am looking more to an operational boat, and Greeneville apparently has recovered nicely from the year of hell they had in '01. I am able to get the word of many folks at my command who work on all the boats on the waterfront, and Greeneville had a great ORSE, is the Battle "E" boat, and is overall considered "shit hot".

We'll see...the Force still isn't clear to the Jedi Master detailer, but it's only going to be a month or so. I'll be glad either way to get back to being an LPO.

And, of course, testing that Blog-Buoy system :)

(Nice try, but I do have my fish :)

Hi Rob, I came across your site while searching for some related information. Although not exactly what I was looking for, I really do like your site. You might also find information on the reverse parking sensor interesting too.. This is a safety device that every driver should not be without.

Rob, interesting post - It's nearly that time....

Personally, I've always found offshore tax haven to be very intriguing, and interesting, but not always very informative. So I did some research and started my own webpage to help people get started with offshore tax haven.

If offshore tax haven also piques your interest, come by when you've got a few seconds - check out the different resources listed. I'm sure you'll find it very interesting.

Hi Rob, oh dear, I'm getting square eyed here - must have been spending too much time reading blogs and ##keyword## information.

Some blogs I just skip through but I spent a while here. Ciao.

You must have spent a lot of time putting together your blog. You must be proud of it.

I am planning to start a blog soon - to go with my website on offshore tax haven.

Do you have any advice for someone just starting their own blog?

If you do, do you think you could post a quick message on your blog here so all of us could benefit from your wisdom?

Thanks

Aloha Rob, I'm in Hawaiian mood as I'm listening to Ki ho'alu music (If you've not heared this type of guitar music then you are in for a treat!) so I'm not really concentrating very hard but I came across It's nearly that time... looking up gen on reseller hosting package. Anything to do with reseller hosting package I always look at, though I do have a tendency to wander about in blogs just reading generally.

Well done on a nice blog Rob. I was looking for information on yacht charter and came across your post It's nearly that time... - not precisely what I was looking for related to yacht charter but an interesting read all the same!

G'day Rob, what a great blog you have here, been entertained by the read. Just noticed that my brief time visiting blogs looking for canadian web hosting items has run into a couple of hours. Easily done when you get engrossed in what people write about. I should really use canadian web hosting as a search term but then I might miss places such as It's nearly that time.... Besides which working all the time is boring.
