For Eric

The Straight White Guy- who loves Adak so much:

The sign says "You are now entering and leaving The Adak National Forest".

Those were the ONLY trees on that island.


  1. :)

    In my USN time, a transfer to Adak was the ultimate threat.

  2. True story: my first Navy cruise on the USS Enterprise back in 1987 was a little 1-monther up around Alaska. We had a drawing on the ship, and the winner got to spend a day at the Adak base.

    Turns out the guys at the base had a similar drawing, with the winner getting to spend a day on the Enterprise.

    I never saw the base, but it really made me wonder what kind of hole it was that an aircraft carrier's amenities seemed swell by comparison.

  3. I was a Sea Bee on a 7 month Det. up there, so I didn't have much of a problem with being in the sticks as others.
    When we were there in the mid-`80's they were supplying cable to the dorms (I was a sub of time -as a CE it's in a days work)and I also was kind of a nature-boy who liked spending time in a semi-volcanic rock with a lot of WWII stuff to be found.

  4. of time= off time. (from my normal work)


I've had to enable moderation because some bots just can't stop sh1tting where other people want to live......kind of like Liberals.

It's either this or WV...
