So my #mission was to put eyes on a road project that we rarely got to visit. I had to hitch a ride with a #convoy leaving FOB #sharana heading down the road to another #forwardoperatingbase . The convoy departs at 2am. The unit I was rolling with didn't have a designated vehicle for me to ride in. They said "Just find room somewhere. We leave in 5." Blackout conditions. Red lights only. Can't see shit with those fucking things. I find room in a vehicle called the 'Buffalo'.... it's a big fucker. It had a purpose and I didn't know what it was.
2 hours into that convoy we stop. We were travelling on dirt roads due to high threat levels on paved roads. Lotta fuckin' IEDs in our neck of the woods. 12 deep convoy comes to a stop. I can only listen in on comms. Mine sweepers pick up something buried..... standby. :05 minutes pass..... :10 minutes.... and then over the headset..... "Definitely something. We're not sure. Bring up the Buffalo"
Fuck me. I should be nowhere near this situation. Fuck me. I chose to ride in the goddamn rig that digs up..... just fuck me, man. Well.... #fuckit .... can't exactly opt-out now. Let's see what happens next. I am #dangermouse .
The cats that were in that rig about to dig up, what was presumed to be, an IED.... were some #coolmotherfuckers . They rolled to the front of that convoy, positioned that big fucking rig.... and brought out #theclaw . I saw this thing swing off the top of that Buffalo and, fuck me if that operator didn't have a soft touch with that big fucking arm. His girlfriend must fucking love him.
This dude positions that giant claw and..... commences to finger-fucking that dirt road like Ron fucking Jeremy. He found the G-spot but she faked the orgasm.
They called it a 'Hoax IED'.... a bag buried to mimic an IED... meant to do nothing but what it did.... bring our asses to a stop out in the open. Luckily it was still pitch black out and the Taliban are lazy fucks.
These were the only pics I captured. #goodtimes
