Well, I have been to Louisiana for about 5 days since the last time I posted. We went down to continue learning how to teach this system to the Army and we were very successful. We learned a lot and were able to do a little teaching too, so things are looking good. The best part was getting some time on the system and watching the soldiers work on it. The worst part was the hour drive to the post from the hotel, but that did give us one pretty cool adventure.
There was a rodeo in town on Friday night, just about 2 miles from the hotel. That was absolutely the perfect timing. We had been working hard at our studies all week and needed the break before flying home on Saturday. This first picture is of the crew, mostly. I missed Cindy, but I got Greg (left), Ben (Cindy is behind him), and RC.
Here is a picture of the chutes. The bullriders were finishing up some final rides and the crowd had thinned out some.
Earlier in the night this guy had a pretty good ride, hard to tell I know, but at least he is still vertical.
As for the food portion of this trip, we really didn't find anywhere we wanted to go that was special. The other instructor team went out for Cajun Crawfish. We didn't really want the spice, legs, or internal body part mess. Yes, we chickened out, but in our defense, it was an hour ride to hour hotel and we had been staying up late every night all week. So that leaves us with an old classic, you can always find good food at Sonic! Here we have RC, Cindy, and Ben. Greg was hiding from the camera.
That's it for this trip. Next up Hawaii! Can you believe it? WOOHOO! Later all.
