Summers in Kuwait

Prior to all this OIF nonsense, I did a six month tour in Kuwait and our hottest day was 159 degrees under camo net. Funny, I think when it gets over 120 degrees it doesn't matter what it actually is. 120 feels the same as 150. It's just effing hot. "But it's a dry heat". Hah hah hah.

i'm with you Pkato. i was there in '90-'91. it was like going out on a summer day and getting in your car when it was all closed up, but you had to stay in there for months!

If you do not stand behind our troops...please stand in front of them....

Not to bad a temp

I can recall many days where the reflected heat off the ground was 150'f and it would cool down to a brisk 100'f with 100% humidity with now wind.
The temp would mess with our vrc-46 radio's and radar on the boats. The humidity would rain off the canopy and make every thing very damp.
Ah yes, my days and nights in the Gulf. Seems like a 100 years ago now.
The picture I have is of my boat in the Gulf back in the day.

I lost 2 lbs yesterday, 1 lb from sweat and 1 lb blood drained from those little devils.
