They say rattlers make a good alarm clock....Ya, had a rattler craw between the tarp and the floor of the tent. I was sleeping on a cot inside a Coleman 9 x 9 on a bear hunt in Stockton Pass near Stafford one time. Turned in the middle of the night and realized there was a rattler under the tent's floor. Left it alone and it was gone by morning.
Spent time in OKC and the Azores off the coast of Portugal. 64-67. 4 month early out. needed 6 months left for reassignment.Sgt BCoz never saw a scorpion either. Being stationed in Upstate NY with multiple TDYs to colder places, like Thule, didn't give too many opportunities.
I don’t know which is worse, 18 months in Argentina Newfoundland or TDY’s in Thule. On second thought, I did have a lot of fun in Saint Johns, and I never ended up in Keflavik either. Did spend a couple of days inside the article circle though. Didn’t see any scorpions, but some mosquitoes we could of hanged bombs on. LolSgt BCoz never saw a scorpion either.
