- Many have probably forgotten (or never knew) how America’s involvement in Afghanistan even started — including some of the troops now being sent there.
Do you know who're the sole forces seeing combat in Afghanistan right now? It's only SOF. Special operations forces fucking LOVE war. No complaints will be coming from soldiers on this one. No one cares how the war started, as long as they get their share. Mandatory service or the draft would drastically change our nations awareness, but in what situation would either of those happen?
We're within months of the day when kids born after 9/11 can serve in the military. We could have
(maybe-of for shit's sake I can't get the formatting to work properly, google Jim Gants One tribe at a time) won this at one point. Instead we repeat the same mistakes day after day. Let it become a radical safehaven(to a point). It's the endstate no matter what and it's better to cut our ties and stop bleeding ourselves dry
Dude! That's incredible. Those pictures are absolutely gorgeous. I didn't think I could be any more excited, but here I am. I have about 5 hours total unplanned time in between now and the flight so you're an absolute lifesaver right now. Were there any reasons you didn't camp besides saving money? Our current plan is to use the public campgrounds along the way. 150 euros/two people for a week doesn't seem terrible.
We're going for 7 days, and then 3 in the Faroes. I wish we could spend more time(7 days is still fantastic), but I'm headed off to meet family in Amsterdam afterwords. I'm also hoping to climb Mont Blanc but we'll see how the timing works out.
- how many hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of machine tools I will eventually need to buy
I think Hubski(well, at least me) can get together an extremely large investment of... moral support, for the small return of some pictures and stories
Has anyone visited the Faroe Islands or Iceland? I'm headed out that way shortly and would appreciate any tips or places to check out.
In other news I bought a motorcycle. Unfortunately in order to ride in Germany, I need a license from California. Which you need to apply for in person. I assumed I would be able to get my license during a short visit last week, but after 4 hours of waiting I had to leave the line in order to make the wedding I was there for. I'm guessing I'll have to send a whole bunch of emails and cross my fingers for this to work.
Trumps treatment of the Baltics is absolutely infuriating. Our support/article 5 is the biggest thing they have in an extremely precarious situation and here we are ready to say screw it all
I'll most likely be going to Iceland in July. I'll let you know anything I find.
Olympic lifts are definitely worth trying. The change from strength to power feels amazing. Sometimes i do miss the old sweat and iron gyms.
My numbers aren't great right now. I dont ORM often so these are all approximation. Cleaning about 125, back squat somewhere in the mid 200's, bench about 205, front squat maybe 185, and 5 miles in around 34-35 min. My training schedule is all kinds of funky, so I've just had to fit in odd workouts here and there
I'm trying to do a bit of everything. I've just started to do olympic lifts, so I'm trying to comfortably rep out cleans at 60kgs, and then just be able to jerk in general. I'd like to get my bench to 275bs ORM, back squat to 315, and front squat to at least 225. With all of this I'm aiming for a 30min 5 mile while mainting sprint speed.
Basically the overall goal is to keep a solid balance of endurance, strength, and speed. Several somewhat recent life occurences have held me back but I've been making decent progress so far.
