    The worst part of deployments

    Money buring holes in pockets that you have to keep to do stuff to your car when you get back. The only thing I still want to do is go to Ferrari world next month but Amazon is a MOFO. Just ordered a Fiio headphone amp to fill the gap, should sound baddass on my Shure SE315s.
    Now to the business...
    Some of you may know I've been fapping over a DD m4a for a while now, I dont think that is going to happen considering stuff I must do first. I think I have it laid out now, I can swap my 5K for a M4 straight up, I might not gain but it wont lose either. I do think its loud enough for what I do with the car. The M4a will gain but I will need to add a battery that I dont really have room for.
    I figured the M4 and rebuilding the back end to something that can hang in about any install comp will be cool. Win SQ, SPL, and install in the same show. Rhino line the box and build mdf covers and plexi windows for the amp rack. Square and clean it up better then it is. It has won install before but there really wanst much compatition. Since DD dropped the 9900 I've been thinking about doing a single 15. Why is there so many options lol

    I feel you man. I was deployed last year and I spent so much time planning my system for when I returned and the waiting killed me. If you decide to part with your HT28's and XL's, let me know

    Been there before brother. Spent my time in the box planning to finally get myself some 95s. Go with those 99's, I've been drooling over them since they posted those pics up on their FB page a couple days ago. Decisions, decisions.

    Worst part: amount of people in the gym.
    Best part: the food. And the money.

    I wish I could say "I feel ya brother" but, I never served. I'm in awe of what you guys give up to allow the likes of me to do what we do... which pales in comparison. Thanks for your service.

    Re: The worst part of deployments

    I would say the worse part would be the possibility of not making it back. Thats the nicest way I could think to word it.

    I thought you were joking about the food. The food was terrible. My stomach is still jacked up nearly a year later!!!!

    The gyms were the worst part though. With so many people on shift work, the **** gyms are always packed. Or sand gets in everything including the AC's, and **** working out in a 100+ degree tent.

    Actually, I'm married, so the worst part was the lack of sex. Definitely the lack of sex.

    Re: The worst part of deployments

    Gym was never very bad where I was. Sometimes was busy but most of the time there were maybe 20-30 people in a fairly large gym. I have never been on a cake deployment.

    Re: The worst part of deployments

    Gyms on the carrier are decent since theres 4 of them. Always packed but you can do what you need to. Trying to squat while the boats rocking *****. We've been eating some kind of fish everyday, dont know what the hell is going on with that. Looking forward to Ferrari world though, it was getting built last time I was over here in 05. We are short handed so I've been in the air everyday minus Sundays, shits starting to wear me out

    I think the worst part of your deployment is knowing there's a good chance you'll come back alive
