82nd,

You did not start anything. I am in Germany and we have Transports stop in here every day to take stuff to and from you locations. But none of the Load Masters will touch it or I would have already sent it.

But if this guy will Step Up and ship it then I am willing to pay for it. This is in writing and everyone on here knows I am a man my word. I will pay for 4 gallons but he must ship it and you must receive it.

My feeling is he is telling me to pull my head out and he doesnt have the balls to do it him self.

I would be interested in that, would you be willing to ship fuel from japan to an APO address in Iraq, if I payed you for the fuel and your services? Thank you in advance.
Yeah I am stationed here at Yokota AB, Japan. I can get it pretty much whenever I need it, but the Japanese will not ship it for nothing. I can't eve get the LHS to ship it to me. I have to go to the store everytime. I would love to ship it to you MPS, but if I get busted, then there goes my 11 years down the drain. If your birds are coming out of germany, then that would be the best bet. Loadmasters do some crazy stuff sometimes. But I know that it is possible. I have seen guys running their stuff in the sand box. Someone around here that has deployed and done has got to know how to get it. If you need anything else though, let me know. I wish I could hook you up man.

See Revo knows exactly what I am talking about. I am not about the throw away my 11 either.

82nd, Like I have said I have already talked to some of the load masters here in Germany and they wont touch the stuff. I am sorry but I have tried.

You best bet is me paying for it if the guy from the UK will ship it.

If you absolutely need to have it shipped and unable to get it locally by ground transport - blend it youreselves. castor or even synth oil is something that ships a lot easier. you should be able to get methanol at the workshop

Hey man allot of people don't support the war but we have Americans over here in harms way regardless if even they support it, and you know we are also human and need to relax and de-stress so yes we find time for toys. Thanks

95% waiting and training, 4% getting there, 1% fighting - sure there's time....
