We have just received word that our jobs will be ending on the 25th of August. Missions, for us, into Iraq will stop on or about the 15th. They are asking everyone to please stay till the 25th. I for one, plan of doing just that. A couple of my South African friends have invited some of us HET drivers to come for a visit. So a couple of us are looking at going to South Africa for a couple of weeks then going our separate ways. I am not sure if this is going to happen or not, but we are looking at it. The thought is why not go while we have a personal tour guide that can show us the real country instead of all the tourist traps. Hell, if I don’t do it now, when will I? We all know how friendships sometimes fade. So I am looking at taking this chance to see a beautiful country the way it should be seen, from the local point of view. But for now, I am going to be here another month and then take a small vacation and then come to the states. I am looking for something else within the company and with other companies. Right now, I am kind of playing it by ear. I will keep everyone updated on what I am doing as it happens.
