    Whoo, I served back in the dinosaur days..lol. 84-89 during the Cold War. I was Military Police/Customs in Keflavik, Iceland, and supply on board the submarine tender USS Frank Cable in Charleston, SC and La Maddalena, Sardinia. I loved Navy life, round peg in round hole.

      I was on the USS Kitty Hawk CV-63 aircraft carrier from Feb. 1972 to Dec. 1975. I was in the last 2 years of the Vietnam War and then 2 years of peace time. I was ships company and a photographer. The last year in I was on what they called "flight skins" which allowed me to fly on and off the carrier. I have flown in helicopters and jets. Launching off a flight deck and landing on a flight deck is the biggest rush I have ever felt. Like Kris said, I liked being in the Navy and all the places I went to, from San Diego to Mombasa, Kenya and all points in between including Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam, Phillipines, Guam, South Korea other places I forget now and to Hawaii 10 times. I just did not like some of the guys I went with. I belong to a Tahoe Forum repair help forum and they had me start a Military Thread and I posted many many stories and lots of members have done the same. If anyone is interested in that thread, get back to me and I will post a link to it. Beware, it is a large thread.

      The reason I got out a little early was that I was accepted in a college in northern Ca. and was let out when the ship hit port on my last deployment.

                  The ability to tow lien vehicles was added to Iowa law in 2019, I have not sold a vehicle since then, but I do have a school bus going up for sale in my next sale.

                  This is for outside parking so I am not going to be looking into getting it towed. But I did call local tow companies to...

                  Avoiding REITs
                  by Brettbyron
                  Hello SST community! I'm a new self storage investor and am working on market due diligence. For my first purchase I'm hoping to avoid markets with REITs and am curious if anyone knows if there's a market characteristic (e.g. population size) below which REITs won't consider investing because it's too...
