Okay, so I forgot about this Blog...so shoot me!!


















Life is hell sometimes, but what do I know, I'm just some ex-nuke-bubblehead who was lucky enough to see the ol' boat from "cradle-to-grave" sometimes I feel like a caretaker for the dead and dying and other times it's just a hunk of metal. Hard to believe that's what's left of what was my home while in the navy. Geez, I must be getting old!




Here she is, when we went through the Panama Canal and, what is pretty much left and saved.

Gruce,
What are your thought about transit of the canal?

Hmmm, my thoughts on transiting the canal? I was tired, it was hot and cloudy, if it was sunny I might hve stayed up topside longer, but my impression was that it was dirty and ugly. I was a few days past my End of Obligated service and had extended for a few months so I could get to Austrailia and complete the deployment. I was eager to leave the boat and get on with my life so i could either be inside the boat where it was air-conditioned and rest, or I could savor the smell of all the diesel traffic from the vessels around us, in hot, muggy and cloudy conditions. I think I stayed topside all of about 45 minutes at most. With no where to go but walk a few feet on top, there is very little you can do that keeps your attention.

True about the hot and muggy weather. When the '68 crew made the transit a bunch were sitting up on the 8" guns enjoying the passing jungle and the locks.
