    He just checked into the naval base, then went over and took his bike out of the secured storage the Navy put it in when they moved it for him.

    The storage place is closed, and he has to get it out of there tonight (they left it outside I guess). This is his first day in San Diego, so he's having some trouble determining if he can get there by public transportation or not, and I think he was expecting to get a ride that he's now not able to get.

    Anyone around there that would be able to give him a ride from Coronado to Miramar rd? He said it's about 15 miles.

    If anyone can help him out, I'll send you a christmas gift!


    BTW, no one needs to tell me this is a ridiculous post...

    if I was down there right now I would help him out, but im about 2 hours away :( Im geussing he needs to get to miramar MCAS? It shouldnt be much of a problem to take the bus if he absolutely has to, it might take awhile but he will make it there.

    what's ridiculous about it? your brother needs help, and you've got connections with people nationwide. you can bet your bottom dollar if he was within reasonable distance of me, i'd be right there to pick him up.

    Yeah. I guess that's it, he said right near the USMC base.

    He's fine with taking a bus, he just can't seem to find one that will take him there. He's on an island and said he can take a bus off the island, but can't find one to get him over there. He's very unfamiliar with the system, so he could stare at the right line and not know it.



    Beater, I know that, but looking for help in an hour is kinda crazy, and asking someone to possibly go out of their way for a favor is asking a bit.

    You Rock... I was going to PM you after I read what you put in the "Tell me about you" thread. My brother is an electronics engineer Nuke, he was all geared up for subs, but they put him on the RR.

    I'm going to PM you my cell #. If you can hook him up, he and I will owe you big time.

    I doubt that Ira would consider you or your brother in Debt here.....


    After all that is what being a Navy Chief is all about:D

    My brother is dumbfounded that I could find someone to help him out that quick (I am alittle, too). I'm actually laughing about it a little cause you probably work on the same base that he's at right now.

    CK5 and the brotherhood rock!! :saweet: :saweet: :saweet:

    Thanks Ira! :bow: :bow:

    I work directly across the channel from his base. I get to see all of the ships come and go.
