Maine 3rd

My belated yearly check in.

Recommended Posts

Hows everyone doing and whats everyone playing now if anything? I've been doing a little IL2 with most of the WW2 addons. It's about as close a a modern equivalent to EAW as anyone has done so far. I'm hoping that Normandy help.

I'm a mere youngster here, but was it you that recommended 'Off Armageddon Reef' as decent reading material some years ago?

Hello Maine!  It's been a long time.  I retired from combat, been occasionally flying in FSX, but not much of that anymore.  Hope you are well.

Hey Cobra. I live Phippsburg just south of Bath so not to far from them and just retired from BIW after 32 years. I remember you saying you have a place in Maine.

Donster and Stans I just started with IL2 again. The Bodenplatte add on finally got it to where it felt right to me. I keep trying DCS every once in a while but it is just too blah so far.

Other than that it has been mostly Red Orchestra 2 Vietnam for games though my son just recently got me into War of Rights which is a civil war fps. It's in beta right now but it doesn't suck and there will definitely never be any run and gun in it.

I've been spending time been keeping up my very small collection of mostly WW2 rifles that I like to shoot but the cleanup after is a little tedious.

Rommel demoted to truck driver, taking supplies to the Eastern Front. Then bringing back the wounded. Next they will make him a cook!

I wonder if Rommel could set me up with a good ww2 era K98 Mauser for my collection? Now that he's a truck driver he could even deliver it.

His demotion might have been the result of his "straightening the lines" one time too many.

Just received a report that the power went out here in zee bunker this morning, so I thought I'd stop by to see if all was well.

 

Lo and behold, I see a thread with Maine and Rommel.

 

No wonder the fuses blew. :unsure:

 

 

I'll let myself out.
