Leaving CONUS enroute to Japan.....

Well, my nice little 3 month hiatus here in the states is about to come to an abrupt end.

Have to fly out to Okinawa, Japan in the morning, 26 hours of flying and sitting in airport terminals that I'm not really looking forward to, but, just another day in the life of a U.S. Merchant Marine.

Filled up the gas tank and added STA-BIL to it, then I drove around for about a half hour before I tucked her away into my 10 x 20 locked, enclosed storage unit.

Disconnected the positive battery terminal and covered her up for her 5 month slumber.

I'm a little sad.....but, when I come back in March, I'll be able to pick up where I left off and continue my quest to make Big Blue the best Commander that she can be.

oh man, well hopefully I'll have an SRT8 commander to show you when you get back, and MAYBE if I make it back down to FL, you can see it in person.

Safe travels. Sometimes we need the bitter in life to more appreciate the sweet. When you come back my Commander will finally be lifted with new wheels, tires, roof rack installed.

Thanks Swanny, made it safe and sound after 26 hours of traveling.

I'll arrive in Cambodia in a couple of days.
