    Nice, Yeah the new 45 looks like fun. Hopefully after i get out of here i can get a station down south. Yeah he mentioned that housing there id pretty expensive. No he's got an f-150 and always makes fun of my tacoma because its so small compared to his truck. If it wasn't so expensive to get stuff shipped here id have a lift for my truck by now, but since everything gets here by barge or airplane it cost an arm and a leg to get stuff shipped here.

    yeah i bet it cost a lot, i have had a few buddies stationed up there on land and what not telling me how when they buy things they have to make sure that the company will even ship up there. what does he have a brand new F-150, but tacomas are a lot better.

    Yeah i looked at getting a lift from toytec but they wanted $370 just for shipping. No he's got an older F-150 but it sits pretty high. Yeah he just makes fun because mine has gotten stuck a few times in the snow, once in my drive way when we got about 3 and a half feet of snow over a 2 day period.

    I've never lived there but I'm heading to Maui in the morning for vacation for two weeks. It's a great place. I've always had great experiences when there. I usually stay in Kihei because it's a little more laid back.

    Anyway, congrats on getting sent there!

    Congrats. Do as much to your truck while your stateside, because shipping parts is expensive. Just got back from Maui. Visited with some family. Gas prices are up there.
