2014 Will have lots of new content as I gear up to head out on my next hitch. I’m not really sure if “hitch” is appropriate. Deployment seems to fit better. Whether it is a hitch or a deployment, doesn’t really matter but it is going to be a long one. I asked for it, so I can’t complain at all. With the planned hitch, I was going to be 10 days short for my next USCG upgrade. I asked if I could extend a little bit and was rewarded with quite a bit more time onboard. Lucky me! There are some huge bonuses of doing things this way that I’ll share as things get underway. I decided to not spill the beans about where I’m headed to, but will post as I encounter them. I will tell you this much: the weather is much different where I’m headed, from where I currently am.
Stay safe in 2014!
