Got my job, got my contract!

Will be in KAF on the 27th Sept, transitting through Dubai.

3 months on, 1 month off.

Any tips from those that know??

Dont think I'll be able to make the next couple of meetings!!! :D

In Kabul at the moment but not long left at all :P. Its very very hot in kaf, Dubbi is even hotter so less cloths the better.

Night times in Kaf are getting colder so some winter cloths would be advisable and oh yes one more DUCK.

WHAT WILL YOU BE DOING OUT THERE?

Nice bargin :D

When i landed at Kaf we had rocket attacks so be prepered. but apart from that do lots of shopping... the board walk is the best place for it.

Winter is very cold but if you have 3months only that not bad..... take your laptop but the internet is very slow on a nght time so best time to be online is early morning of midday. After about 530pm its very slow.

Have yourself a Baskin and Robbins for me.

Can't say I liked KAF much (too many septics), but at least you won't get bored.

I was speaking to some of the KBR boys at BSN, and they had it easy. They just dropped the jingleys off to do the work in the morning, and picked them up later. All for loads of money!!

Keep safe and buy an Aston Martin when you get back with your tax free earnings.

Alright everyone!!!!

Just thought I'd stop by and say hello! :)

Anyway, things are going well, and fingers crossed i'll be flying into Heathrow early Christmas Day morning to start my months leave.

Havent spotted any Scooby's out here, and to be honest its pretty boring in the evenings.

Well, apt from when the A10's have night time target practice on the range.

Off to Dubai for 4 days next week to host a recruitment roadshow , so thats a welcome break, and the chance for a lager!! No booze here and Im choking for a nice cold pint of Carling!! LOL!!

Right you lot, take care and i'll see you all before you know it.
