Most honourable creator of this AAR! Dear mister Cap Mandrake!

I really enjoy reading your AARs (, it has turned into some kind of addiction...

So I read:
- From here to...well...it SEEMS like an eternity
- A Hitchhiker's Guide to the Greater East Asia Co-prosperity Sphere
- and this AAR

in "From here to...well...it SEEMS like an eternity" WWII(a) is mentioned, could you (or anyone else) please provide a link to that AAR? Would be greatly appreciated!

Am I missing any other AAR of the most honorable Cap Mandrake??? Links, please!

Looking forward to another great entertainment,

Cheers
Peter

Along those lines...life is not healthy, because it is always followed by death.

Thank you, young Kursk

There is Diego Garcia, which is AE

http://www.matrixgames.com/forums/tm.asp?m=2341315&mpage=1&key=bring%2Chead%2Cdiego%2Cgarcia

WWII(a) must certainly be standard WITP? I honestly can't remember what is was called.

Mr. Cap, what's going on? Has some Indian tribe kidnapped your opponent once again, or is SG keeping you away from the game?

OK, back. 8 days in Guatemala then a week of call with no sleep and then SG made me take her to Cancun for her birthday.

She couldn't make up her mind..Chicago, Sonoma, Los Cabos. Santa Maria! I'm not going to freaking Chicago in the middle of freaking February and you don't go to Napa in February either. Los Cabos flights were booked so I looked up "how many murders in Cancun last week?" and it was only 5 so I booked it. Last minute we did get punished on the flights but we booked an all-inclusive place Riu Palace Peninsula....Niiiiiice place. Great food. Purfied water and ice so no run-in with Senor Moctezuma.

Very international crowd. Lots of Brits and Spaniards and some French. Lots of Brazilians. Quite a few Asiatics. HAI! Some REALLY annoying Spanish Gypsies. Gypsy moms bring their kids to the swim up bar pool with free booze and breast feed literally while they drink which helps the baby fall asleep. Unbelievable number of Russians arrived on Friday. Must have been a whole fleet of Antonovs at the airport. Probably 1 or 2 crashed on the way.

That is the first time I ever saw so many Russians in one place. This should generally be avoided. You know how beautiful Russian women are? Well, it's a lie. That's just the tennis players and exotic dancers. They leave the retired shotputers behind in Mother Russia. All the men under 50 have big brow ridges and look like you could hit them with a 2 by 4 in the face and nothing would happen. I highly recommend NOT getting into a war with the Russians. Improbably, they are much more annoying than large groups of Americans. Loud..bark orders at the Mayans...drink like fish..and, by comparison, make American tourists look like Versace personally picked out their outfits. Flip-flops with checkered shorts and striped muscle shirts and armpit hair hanging out when they reach for the grapefruit at the buffet...and that's just the women.

Did I fail to insult anyone? Oh, yeah, the Canadians who haven't seen a photon for about 5 months and then lay right out in the Mayan sun and look like parboiled Caribbean lobsters in about 3 1/2 minutes

Haitians can't afford Cancun...plus an inner tube raft lacks the sufficient navigation tools.

Our guide at Chichen Itza was an anti-American Commie. He had a grudge about Americans calling themselves "Americans" and he likened the decline of the Mayan civilization to what he termed "the current decline of world cultures" and obliquely reference the Orange Man. A Romanian guy who had actually been alive under Communism told him he was in error. I thought it was going to be Romania v Mexico. The Romanian guy was right but was also an ass hole.

Santiago, the commie guide nominated a Brit to be king of the tour group because he had the most wrinkles. His wife gave a bunch of crap back to Santiago. I think it was mostly play-acting but she was very convincing and may partly have been the implication that she was no spring chicken either.

Chichen Itza has been very well restored since I was there 20 years ago.. The facing stones on the main pyramid have been 75% restored. It's bloody amazing. Even so, they let the locals sell complete tourist crap INSIDE the park like a cheap market in Tijuana. Bad. Must be some kind of silly political compromise.

Good to semi see you back, Damn! and all this time I thought you were shacked up with
slightly S&M leaning bondage fan committee chair. Vacation story probably better though...

I was thinking of France this summer but the other half decided on Italy....

I think 2 days of wah were left out...oh well.

Short summary. JJ sunk a transport group near Flores and destroyed an Advance Naval Support unit...and we sank a Jap transport group loading troops at Ontong Jaya, destroying a Naval Guard unit.

JJ is landing troops to take back Hollandia but 7th Marine regiment is being flown in slowly and they are holding out.

We sent more guys across the river to Moulmein and are making progress there

JJ is trying to work up the rail line and get to Chumpon and thence to Victoria Point.
