Check, check. Is this thing on?

Twenty months to the day. That's how long it's been since I've posted on this thing. What has changed in twenty months? In a nutshell: No more school, relationships were up and down (currently up!) and I'm heading to Afghanistan. That is not a typo. You read that correctly. I'm heading out with the Canadian Forces as an MP and part of a unit we call the POMLT. That is the Police Observation, Mentoring and Liason Team.

I'm being picked up by pick-up truck today to take me back to CFB Petawawa. That's where I've been training for the past year. From there, it's baggage turn in tomorrow. Then there's a nice bus ride on the 4th to Trenton followed by a long plane ride to Afghanistan. My boots will be covered by Afghan dust and dirt by the 5th. It may still be the 4th here at that time.

Euge suggested I get this blog up and running again. I can't promise that as I'll be in the boonies, but hell, with this post, I at least gave it a shot.

Perhaps the future will be filled with weekly posts. One can only hope.
