    Here is my best friend from the ship and I being goofy while we were waiting to actually be assigned work when we were pulling into port. haha we are real characters.

    And here we are while watching the ship pull in between the islands of Hawaii. They let all personnel onto the flight deck to take pictures and watch the transit. It was a lot of fun and we got our shop's group photo as we passed.

    Here's all of us sitting on the very furthest forward part of the ship on the flight deck. It was so unreal. You have no idea how fast you're going until youre watching from the front. It felt like we were flying.

    And here we are in the same spot watching the transit. It really looked like we could jump right into the water from there, but no there's a safety net there!

    And here we are actually pulling into port. normally all persons would be in dress whites manning the rails at attention, rendering salutes to pearl harbor but because of my job I had to move around a lot so I got to get some cool pictures. I'll post more of our RIMPAC pictures once I find them!

    True, but I was actually referring to visiting when underway and doing flight ops. But thanks anyway!

    I don't post many pictures (because I don't like looking at myself nor do I like being photographed), but since my wife made me take a shot for her to have I figured I'd share it...

    [​IMG]

    Which, oddly enough makes me look like my baby picture...

    [​IMG]

    The last previous photo of me (that I know of) was this one from a couple summers ago...

    At least now I don't have to take another photo for a couple more years. :D

    Awesome shots Brie. It must have been pretty cool to sit up on the flight deck like that.

    If any of your family members are on carriers you can do a tiger cruise with them and they will do flight ops for the families :)

    Yeah it was. Being I don't work on the flight deck (I'm trapped inside) it's nice to see the sun every now and then lol. Sitting on the flight deck while sailing was cool! I'll post up some more from Hawaii real quick!

    Here's a nice candid shot of me helping my friend down the stairs, since she is quite clumsy lol

    Here we are swimming in a waterfall after climbing a three mile trail to get there. It started raining half way up so we were freezing by time we got to the falls.
    [​IMG]

    And here is the view from the top of the trail we hiked, it was beautiful!
    [​IMG]

    And the view from the bottom of the hike, near our car
    [​IMG]

    here's some turtles we saw, we couldn't touch them because the fine was $5,000 but it was cool to see them none the less
    [​IMG]

    and us getting the most important package in the world...red bulls

    our matching outfits and inter tubes on 4th of July. Would you believe we swam over a mile out into the ocean on those inter tubes? Oh you don't...well we did and got it was exhausting, but it was well worth it. On 4th of July there's a thing called "floatilla" where hundreds of boats and jet skis park out in the ocean and people paddle out on boards, tubes, mattresses basically anything that floats, and everyone parties like no tomorrow!(I'm on the right)

    Oh, it's from Dune (a modified version of the Spacing Guild's insignia), this was the original artwork I did for it...

    [​IMG]

    Hard to believe I got it nearly 18 years ago (back when I was 30... and had hair). :eek:

    For the last couple years I've worked as the head lifeguard/lifeguard instructor at a YMCA and my normal t-shirt covers it, so when I do water workouts or wear a tank top people always ask me if it is new (it is still pretty dark even after all these years).

    My wife likes it, so in the end that is what really matters to me. Her favorite thing about it is that it is slightly raised.

    So Brie, you don't live in San Diego/Coronado?

    I ask because I grew up in Coronado... right there.

    That's where my ship is stationed out of yes, but I live in Nevada, I only go out to the ship when it is doing workups. They fly me out.

    Serving aboard a U.S. Navy supercarrier has never looked so fun! Thanks for all these latest photos, Brie, and thanks again for putting on that uniform each and every day for your fellow Americans.

    Ha! That's cute. A little free publicity for the show, there.

    I'm pretty sure it's intentional marketing. There was a black bench with the silhouette of Don Draper nearby as well.

    Of course. A little advertising.
