Gunfighter Diary Desert Shield 02 Nov 90

02 NOV 90

Not on the schedule, except for test flights, and no aircraft came up for test today. Guess I slowed down flying in Oct, only 15 hours. Nothing like a little continuity. They're trying to keep us a 25 hours a month, actually the airframes at 25 hours a month. Now if we can use those hours to TRAIN, it will be great. And give us some ordnance too.
Scooted around all day, pretending to be busy while actually doing nothing, and pretty much succeeded. Oh, we finally got our desert cammies! 2 trousers, 1 blouse, 1 cover, 4 t-shirts, 1 scarf, 1 long john top, 1 long john bottom, 1 night desert parka (green and dark green blocks?) parka liner, night desert trousers. Also got flak jacket cover, helmet cover and "pack-sack", a bag to put pack in. Aren't we the desert ninja warriors now? I like the night desert coat, it looks like a duster.
Went to disgusting chow, hauled new desert wardrobe and mail from terminal to tent. This plus putting it all away wore me out. Fell asleep at 1830, woke up long enough to crawl into sleeping bag.
