Thumbs up I was taught "Hurry Up & Wait" in USMC.

Well my Countryman is here, it hurried along and got here on good time. Farm Girl and I ordered it on Feb 22. I been checkin "SAILWX.INFO" and keepin track of it, the ship sat off the coast of Long Island for a day but has pulled into Bayonne NJ port now. This is where it will be off loaded. So my sales rep said there are backups and people waiting before me. So I may have to wait a couple more weeks as my Countryman sits on the pier.

Kinda stinks, Bayonne piers are about 20-25 minutes away

STAND BY MARINES FUN IS COMING....... SEMPER FI

No, Army Airborne. Yeah, I just got my first MINI a few months ago and really love it. I'm sure you will be well rewarded. They're neat little cars.

Good to hear, did you happen to be in NC by chance? I was at Camp Lejeune, NC.

The wife n I have an 09 Oxygen Blue HardTop, we love it but the last good snow here (10"+or-) in NJ I got stuck 3 times coming to work. So we decided after 59'000 trouble free miles to get a Countryman S All-4 Mini did us so good and really are so great to own and drive we wanted another one.

Yes. Fort Bragg with the 82nd and then later came back Fort Bragg after being with the 187 in Japan. That was back before the crust of the earth cooled.

The MINI I have is my first introduction to the car and it's been about three months now and this little thing still amazes me.

White Cooper Ft. Bragg & Camp Lejeune........

Mornin, sorry the end of the work day becomes more busy than work itself, so I just don't have time to chat. The wife aka (Farm Girl) had a complete hip replacement and there is alot to do when I get home to help her. FYI........ my wife was Navy "Underwater Salvage & Recovery" out of Little Creek VA. She says "Yeah We Pulled Those Planes Out The Water that You Marines Crash" You were in Japan, nice. I was a Grunt/ Infantry and I been allot of places over my 10 years in, Japan & Korea twice.
