      I hope ill be able to make it. During OCS for the Navy I don't think Ill have any off base privileges until like week 9. That would be around May time.

      Does anyone here commute to H20i or SOWO?

      We usually do H2O but are not going this year due to some guy that scheduled a wedding too close to the regular lol. We are going to Wolfsgart this year instead.

      Welcome! Lots of neat nautical stuff in the area.

      Mystic Seaport: http://www.mysticseaport.org/

      Nautilus museum: http://www.ussnautilus.org/

      Battleship Cove: http://www.battleshipcove.com/

      Battleship Cove would be a good place for people to meet when it gets warmer. Was last there in 2006 or so.

      My wife was just in Newport last weekend with a friend. They were looking for a diner for breakfast Monday before meeting me in Mystic. I suggested the following, and they really liked it.

      https://www.facebook.com/pages/Bisho...17969334927766

      Looks like they also went to Gary's.

      https://www.facebook.com/pages/Garys...42232375881399

      My wife likes diners. Wants to turn the unfinished basement into an old diner-themed room. Matt (TheGinMill) wasn't helping when he said that sounds like a good idea.

      I sent her an old diner car that was for sale. She wanted it for the backyard.

      The Charles W. Morgan, the last wooden whaling ship, is in Newport in a couple of weeks. Worth seeing, if you didn't see it in Mystic.

      Where does everyone go for car maintenance? There may come a time where my car needs a place to be worked on. It would have to be fairly inexpensive and have knowledge of air ride systems and a tuned VW.
