Achtung Turbogoat

Post by Yourmother »

Not posted for a while.

Hope you’re ok, and possibly just taking a break from here.

Not posted/been logged in since Oct 2nd. Part way through the World Cup.

Last few posts sounded like you were in a very dodgy part of the world. Even from your perspective.

Any posters know him well enough to verify he’s ok?

He was on assignment in October-November, or thereabouts, with very poor access to outside comms. Could well still be involved with that.

I was going to create this thread as well, I'm off to Iraq in about a week and wanted to get some tips if he was willing to share. Maybe even a tentative cabal.

Perhaps the mods can help me out with sharing emails?

Slightly concerning perhaps, but I am confident that NZ is so small, and Turbogoat such a big swinging dick, that we would read about his untimely demise on Stuff or the NZ Hurled.

Iraq cabal is best cabal photo replete with local serving drinks would live long in the bored memory, I'm sure.

The problem is you’re all being too quiet and polite and thus easily overlooked. So let me help you out.

This is probably too late, but I've just found out that my Sister's ex is an ATC in Iraq.

Apparently he was very close to yesterday's drone hit.

I'll be up in the north, in the KRG (Kurdistan Iraq), so I'm not that phased. Also, I'm an African boet ;)

Pay is in US $, and with the Rand/Dollar exchange its not bad at all. I'll be going over on my own - single male living costs, which is comparable to here - so I think the pay is pretty decent.

I'm going there to work though, not mess-around, and I'm confident my expenses will be fairly limited.

Will do OomPB, although I should probably start a "look at me, I'm a chickenrunner in Iraq" thread.

When does it become a chickenrun?

When does it become a chickenrun?
When the run is towards safer pastures (basically former/current British colonies and the USA)

Be safe, boet, and enjoy the experience. Wish you well.
