Kevbo,
I want to know where that C130 will pick you up in Simi Valley? The Airport closed off Tapo in about 1980!!! I landed there once before we moved the Airplane off Moorpark Road just below the Reagan library for awhile and finally Camarillo. Marine One landed there but never a C130 even.

I just wanted to give everyone a heads up as to what to expect at the rally. Kevbo stands out in a crowd and is a lot of fun to be around. He will be the tallest, best dressed cowboy at the rally.

high richard and jan,

thanks for the quick response, that's what i love about people from AZ, there so on top of everything, like all the time.

as you know, my head is so large, it creates it's own weather system, so sure, the halo is big and certifiable. i'll work out the Hercules C130 details. i have one of the few airstreams with the optional rear 'chute deployment systems (was only available in '05 and only on certain FFA CCD's), so we'll do the squat 'n drop. coming in a day early, so i'm thinking space 210 would be good. thinking i'll need about 800 feet to bring the TV and AS to safe stop at that location. please advise any early arrivials to not be overly alarmed if they spot a low flying C130. it's just kevbo dropping in. i work on the exit strategy as well.

in regards to the greeters position, it is a lot of work, sorry i missed you, i may have been busy w/ the discovery camera crew that stopped by 29 palms, or helping out people with problems, at space 171. the job does pay well, so you got that working for you.

thanks, for dropping the black tie rule for the pot luck, i wasn't sure if i could get all my attire back from the drycleaners in time. your a life saver. so i'm going western. you guys are kicked back and well, thanks.

as far as the looting goes, i was limited today by the cargo master at USMC Twentynine Palms to just 800 lbs. of additional "cargo", so i guess, i'll "strike out", on my own. you know the only problem w/ looting is everybody wants you to take it over the border for them. i'm going to be severly limited on the return flight weight wise, so it's each man for himself.

thanks,

glad you guys made it home safe,

kevbo

i depart Naval Air Station Oxnard. i've emailed my brother (the other general), for assistance. i live on a ranch just below the reagan library on rambling road, in simi valley. ventura county is red, so i should fit right in with you folks from AZ.

Airforce one now uses NAS Oxnard, however this is classified information. please refer to the yet to be completed four corners charter. may i remind you that page 982, section 29, paragraph 12 clearly states "no member shall divulge classified information before or during the attitude adjustment hour". please, i beg you, do your homework, i'm not just another pretty face.

i'm not concerned about the arrival, squat n' drop works for me. my brother has suggested that a USMC heavy lift chopper for departure would work well, so again, i'm staying a day later, please don't be alarmed by the noise.

thanks for the concern.

kevbo

Too funny, Pt Mugu was the place of choice 20 years ago. Oxnard AFB became a civil airport too and the housing area was a great place to meet fellow gang members. They all had Airstreams lined up, or were those P3's I forget. Oxnard NAS was a bunch of Sea-bees but a rocking NEX and commissary, lol. Hey, your brother should trade his general status for vice admiral or at least commodore so us retired warrants would know to salute him.

randy, i beg you, if your an early arrival, do not set up in spaces 200 - 210. i can't be held liable for a miss placed "drop", and please reread the charter regarding classified information. see an earlier post for the exact 6,000 pages of prose, to "in jest".

richard, i'm sensing hostility here, so un AZ. he's bagged on my brother, me, and the Sea-Bee's. what's next? mom and apple pie?. please, please, do not reveal the secret four corners handshake to this fellow. he may be a shill for "some other brand".

where is doorgunner when you need him?

Cow or Horse Works

sorry to barge in again, i can see how busy everybody is cuttin, splittin and stacken there home grown for the rally.

quick question, hoping maybe some locals can help me out...

i generally only buy my beer at establishments that have a cow on the roof. however i know how over senistive some AZ'ers can get, so i'd settle for a horse or horses on the roof.

could anyone point me in the right direction for such a place close to the dead horse rally? say, within 30 min.s or less?, not a big driver here.

my horses, lightning and thunder, prefer regular coors, the ta-kill-ya is for the seven foot cowboy. (please, lightning has a drinking problem, so at the rally, all beverages are to be served to the horses during daylight hours only, and please, ONLY if they behave. they were a wreck in twentynine palms. the children kept over-beveraging the critters).

thanks in advance (my second rally),

kevbo

so if we end up next to Kevbo, we're likely to hear "bingo beer!" as the last cold one departs the cooler?

DEAR MR. WHOPPER:

PLEASE REFER TO POST #132

i'm taking issue w/ the whole door prize issue. everyone please pull out your under read and often misused four corners charter. page 5,005, paragraph 13, subsection C, lines 78 thru 91.

under the chapter heading: "rights and privilages"

i'll quote directly: "if a former rally greeter objects for any reason, it must be true".

and the charter goes on to read...

"a properly loaded AS (including but not limited to; two equines and one seven foot cowboy) shall be so equiped upon arrival w/ beverage, cowboy grub, and #1 alfalfa, as to withstand dry camping for a min. of 40 days and nights".

well clearly, in the 90 second business meeting to be held at 3am saturday morning in deadhorse, the agenda item shall be amended to read "beverages w/ a min. alcohol content of 5%, unless, the equines prefer a higher %, then they shall be so provided". can i get a second?

must i continue?

kevbo

Oh, no! Last time I discharged the spud gun was in the Marriott Marina in San Diego and I swear the cops arrived within minutes....but we were off the boat and into the gas lamp district in less than a minute! Ha!

Even better is the flaming tennis ball gun fired down the hall at drunks coming out of the bar. Of course, they were a little jumpy anyway since the reason they were drunk is they were being shot at every time they went up to enjoy at little flying time, way back in 1971...

Fair warning to the FCU

Kevbo is not joking about the airlift.

He arrived in 29 Palms via a squat and drop on Amboy Rd. It scared the snot outta everyone. We were impressed though that when he released the chute he was doin the speed limit with his blinker on to turn into the park. Very impressive.
