Default Taking a little "Boat Ride"!!

My girlfriends niece is in the navy. She is a nuclear reactor tech on an aircraft carrier. This weekend her ship is having what they call a "Family and Friends Day". She has invited us so Saturday I will be spending the day at sea on the carrier USS George Washington, complete with air show. I have never even imagined being able to do anything like this. Excited doesn't come close to what I'm feeling.

I promise to post pics next week.

Maybe they'll let you take one of their F-18 Hornet jets for a quick spin.

Post pics while you are landing it on the deck.

That sounds awesome. I got to tour a carrier in Texas once and it was super cool. Please post some pics!

That is way way cool. The Navy actually recruited me for that, or a similar position while I was at Michigan Tech. Thought about it for about 2 seconds, then figured there was only a dozen nuke aircraft carriers, and would probably be stationed on a sub instead. Love the water, but life on the sea isn't for me!

Looking forward to the pics.

Was that the one permanently docked at Corpus Cristi? We went thru that one when we bowled there. Pretty neat.
