Appropos of nothing, it just occurred to me that your anti-Jeep reputation would go well with Steel Division, Cy! -- a match often starts with transports being shot out from under their ferrying troops for several minutes. ;)

Shouldn't the thread title have changed to "Almost Sixty weeks from October to Next October..."  ?

Game Time Is: 2200, 16th October 1806!

TWO HOURS!!  That's right...TWO.

Fatigue calculation in two hours and then on to morning orders.

And, for what it's worth, I have now sent my 500th dispatch.

S!

P.S.:  Brant, I am going to pretend I did not hear that.

Fatigue calculation is DONE.

Some tired fellows out there.

I have been asked for a slow walk to Sunday and will grant it.

I will be looking for 6 a.m. orders at that time, however.
