Have to admit, climbed Mt Vesuvious 1st christmas Eve away from home, stood in front of the Pyramids of Giza, was briefly above the Arctic Circle in Feb, SAW a Yugoslavian MiG- 19 fly barely under the starboard overhang of our aircraft carrier with an pissed off F- 14 "Tomcat" in HOT pursuit, participated in flight ops at night ("going upstairs and playing with the dragon"), got to skydive with a chute I packed and numberous other things...it WAS an adventure !

I've had my share of adventures over the last 13 years as well. No complaints overall.

I didn't watch the video before I made my last reply. That dude is very fortunate he just caught a ricochet off of the 50 cal. or he might have been saluting St. Peter.

The "golden BB"...same 1 as the "big sky. very small moving target" therory. Once read a very strange story of a US naval aviator over Viet Nam flying a RF-8 "Crusader" photo fighter in May `66 when it was hit by acouple of pieces of Soviet made 57MM flak shell bursting close by the plane. 1 piece lodged in the insturment panel and the pilot noticed some numbers on it "..3406." That pilot`s service number ended with "3407". Figuring the NEXT 1 LITERALLY had his "number"on it he evaded wildly as his cameras caught footage of an unsurvivable series of flak bursts momentarilly darkening the sky just ahead of his now manouvering and turning plane.

having been sent to repair engines on PBR'S in Vietnam several times I would say it was a Adventure,nothing like being in a aluminum boat with bullets bouncing all around the boat,sounds like a kids Xylophone, I only spent a couple days at a time ,I never looked forward to going back, because if you went back to the same boat there would be a new crew man because others were wounded or killed,I will say the Navy with in hours of the call for help will get you on ,,but getting off was a different story..

Agreed. GETTING OFF the boat willingly and disappearing into the dark jungle was a job for the "men with green faces'- God bless the SEALS, `cause personally would have been VERY "reluctant' to...
