Close to Hawaii, San Fransisco was fun. I was able to visit Alcatraz and take the audio tour, most awesome. While walking around I was able to see quite a few movies and go through the mall on market street. I will have to try and get some pictures uploaded.

Meanwhile, some lessons learned:

10. General Quarters still sucks.
9. Food Service Assistance's get to experience their own special circle of hell.
8. Sleep is precious, having someone who's clock goes off at odd hours isn't
7. The laundry on ship doesn't eat socks, just towels.
6. The higher your rank the more you need coffee.
5. Enlisted laundry may be dropped off at anytime, just don't expect it back anytime soon.
4. Zone inspections take months off of your life.
3. China town can come out of nowhere
2. Meandering old broken down prisons can be fun!
1. Manning the rails rocks.

#2 does sound like fun. I'm going to go to San Fran one of these days and end up doing that myself.

And you ship laundry. O__O Me and Tuna blame the Borg for the socks so who eats the towels?

#10 General Quarters suck, unless the drill is for the engine room to blow up, then, if you are an engineer, you can play dead or shell shock...coooooooooooool
#9 no duh
#8 again...no duh
#7 EWngineers always washed their own towels down in the engine room using some of the tri sodium phosphate...oops...was not suppose to mention our cleaning secrets.
#6 An actual order given at morning quarters "Petty officer walker (that's me) is here by FORBIDDEN to make coffee!!!!" The Senior chief did not like my coffee.
#5 Again...no duh
#4 OPEE and IN-SERVE sucks worse.
#3 East coast squid...cannot relate
#2 so is putting out forest fires in an area your ship is named after
#1 True Engineers hated manning the rails. too much fresh air!
