Hey Six, man, I'm gone for a couple of days and you launch not one, not two, but three new WhamoCamo designs! Holy Smokes!!!

And I see SOLD all over the place... 8O

Of course, you know I like them, especially the ones that said SOLD!!! :twisted:

Next time I go out of town, I'm gonna leave a small deposit with Hawk to bid for me if you get the "bug" and whip out some new designs while I happen to be away!!! :wink:

Nah, just kidding, "Congrats", Old Friend, those were awesome designs and NO WONDER on why they sold so fast!

But, I'm back and I've got a lot of catching up to do... $$$... I feel like a kid deprived of candy for 10 days, and have a serious "jones" to get something! :lol:

Aloha and Best Wishes Always!

Aloha,

The travel was successful and we had an excellent Technical Training Workshop in Satellite Communications and Peripheral Technologies! And, it was fun to visit Palau again!!! WWII was the biggest event in the Pacific and there are evidence of the fighting still around today. Especially in Peleilu, the southern islands of Palau.

I am sure you all will think "I need to get a life", but I missed you folks and posting on the board! Of course, I missed my guns and on-going projects as well. But work is work and what buys our toys... :lol:

While traveling, I could get connected to the Internet, but it was so slow, that just trying to see the different threads was a loooong wait and posting replies would have been fruitless.

Just glad to be back!!!

Aloha,

Tom O.

Hi Oxmix:

Tremendous fighting occurred on the islands of Palau, especially in Pelelieu (spl?). There are still memorials up with Arisaka rifles with bayonets stuck in the ground with Japanese helmets on them marking graves there. Destroyed Japanese tanks are still as they stood, in the shallow reefs, in town and in the surrounding jungle.

There are several Japanese strongholds still up in Pohnpei, Saipan and in Palau. This is where the Japanese made their last stand. The strongholds are mazes of tunnels and you can still find artifacts walking around in them.

Interestingly, there is little, if any, rubbish and modern "crap" on the walls marking them up... most are still in good or pristine condition...

You got to be there... I was in AWE of some of the stuff I saw.

Certainly a lot of history that one could "feel" by simply walking about such a place.

Thanks for sharing some of your experiences Tom. My only regeret is that I could not tag along ... :(
