    LOWA Urban Desert MPS boots?

    +1 on the LOWA Zephyr Deserts without GTX. Not quite as good as Keen Voyageur Mids IMHO but more uniform friendly. If you need a taller boot you might want to check out OTB boots, they have been getting good reviews.

    Posting Policy-Restricted (IR) & Prohibited moves [MERGED]

    I recommend something off Elgin street, lots of one bedroom apts around $800/mo. Very short walk to the transitway and busses to anywhere in the city. Being able to walk to the market, shopping, restaurants etc on a whim is fantastic.

    Michael Yon on Canadians, Menard, (violating) OPSEC [merged]

    2010 Budget - Let the Hand Wringing Begin...

    I agree with both Edward's and Old Sweat's assessment. We see this protectionism in the CF as well, as anyone who has had involvement in the Strat Review can attest to. Offer up the unpalatable as your bottom 5% and hope the centre backs off...  ::) As a taxpayer I am hoping for the kind of...

    Ady Gil Loses Bow to Japanese Whaling Vessel

    Well if the Minke population is around 665,074 like it says on the ref linked on wikipedia, and the Japanese are harvesting about 900 Minke's per year, then that would be a harvest of about 0.135% of the local Minke population, or between 1/10th and 2/10th of 1%. Now I'm no whale biologist like...

    Moe, I'm not sure on this but I think amastermason is talking about the smock made by Drop Zone. I think they were one of the companies allowed to use the real deal.

    09/10 Budget Impact on PRes - Unit stand-downs, Class B Freeze, and so on!

    Agreed. I only point it out to illustrate the bureaucratic complexity of DND. Almost 20 Level 1 Orgs. Madness.
