Besides, how the hell are you going to get the bear out of Alaska?! You certainly aren't going to be able to fly that rental plane all the way back to NYC... through another country's airspace, no less!
He'll probably fly through the Panama Canal, same as his boat below is bringing all the "guns and crops" up to Alaska

That's the one part I am missing. Brother's in Arms. I knew I could always count on having my blind side covered. When my hearing started to go I had 3 years left so I had to work hard at keeping my MOS. Got to the point I couldn't fake it anymore without risking a life. Sad day when the Doc got a hold me and stood behind me and started asking questions. Sat there like a lump on a log. Thought he left the room. Corps let me wind it down stateside teaching at a rifle and pistol range out east.

2 more years and I'm stone deaf. That's why I have dogs. American Eskie's. Good dogs. My pack was up to 16 and nobody came on the property unannounced. Might not hear to well but my vision is outstanding!

Thanks again.

No one is an ex------. We're FORMER and still have the instincts that were drilled into us. We'll have that until we die. I met a lot of GREAT people in the military.
