  • KOREA UPDATE ,5 APRIL, 1505 KST TUESDAY:GPS ATACKS CONTINUE,NORTH SHOWS ATTACKS ON SEOUL,WELCOME HOME VALKYRIE,watches added

    UPDATE 10 DECEMBER 2015, 0640 KST THURSDAY:

    60F. and light rain on Jeju-do this morning, it may seem we are getting a lot of rain, but no, we just update on days it is lol! Why ruin a beautiful day with a computer! The ladies decide it's fate saying "go shopping...go shopping, the stored are dry inside...". Next week Soo-jin and I have to head up to Paju for some "onsite work", we can do most "administrative" work here , but some we need to do hands on...dammit.

    There was some minor excitement when a PLAN (Chinese) patrol boat chased a Chinese fishing boat that entered ROK waters and was warned to exit with 10 warning shots fired. No big deal. ..http://english.yonhapnews.co.kr/nort...06852315F.html

    The North Koreans are building "stronger" combat ships to deal with the South, one of the new ones is being completed in Sinpo, right next to the Navy's SLBM submarine..http://www.arirang.com/News/News_View.asp?nseq=185988.

    The ROK is developing a stealth UAV as a stand off weapon to attack the North's WMDs and missiles...http://www.arirang.com/News/News_View.asp?nseq=185989

    Well this will show those nasty North Korean missile forces, next we will yell at them for their carbon footprint..yeah....http://www.arirang.com/News/News_View.asp?nseq=186071

    Not a good sign, North Korea has completed 7 brand new infiltration submarines., so good sub footage for you navy types..http://www.arirang.com/News/News_View.asp?nseq=186078

    Sounds like a good reason to get the heck outta Dodge..er Pyongyang...http://english.yonhapnews.co.kr/nort...08800315F.html

    Four terror suspects deported from the ROK...http://www.arirang.com/News/News_View.asp?nseq=186059

    A look inside ROK anti-terror drills, these have been carried out for years already, the country is still at war...http://www.arirang.com/News/News_View.asp?nseq=186060

    Lee jee-hyun has the weather forecast for Korea, who says black and white is boring..http://www.arirang.co.kr/News/News_View.asp?nseq=186110.

    Santa In-Santa-ny has begun in the ROK. To lead us off here we submit one of our grade A Valkyries to get you into the Christmas spirit. Eat yer hearts out we don't export you have to show up here...

    We have better ways to pass those long winter nights and to keep warm, how come you are not here yet? One more reason...
    xmas 2.jpg

    No way you can beat that smile, ne? Ho-Ho-Ho! Definitely on the "nice list"!

    Take care...Jim & Soo-jin at home on Jeju-do, far from the frontlines and living the life

      Hi Vince;

      The new subs are 'hiding' in the Sinpo Naval Base on the island south of the construction pen where the SLBM sub and new combat craft are being finished. Best that can be done is a "beacon" lol! And that has been done

      Take care, brother...Jim & Soo-jin

              UPDATE 16 DECEMBER 2015,1515 KST WEDS:

              42F. and sunny in Paju today. We are back on the Imjin for a few days, some things can not be done by satellite uplink and computers. We got back in from a walk this morning at 0 dark 30, and all went well, very quiet...nice. Tension is high still, the North is definitely up to something. many feel there is a major provocation brewing, the north allays acts "mellow" just before they drop the hammer, rather predictable. We left "Snow Flake" and Dutch Jr., in charge of the compound and entertainment while we old folks are in the north working. Hope the place is there when we head back. :O Soo-jin keeps saying "Dutch we got to retire, we getting to old for ths...", I think she is right the flight back up to Paju suxed, even Richard looked a bit down, guess he's liking married life LOL! To bad Yun-hee isn't in the unit, we like our set up never apart, no wondering what is happening is good.

              This is something we've been trying to tell you for a long time now, you are a target of Kimie too...http://english.chosun.com/site/data/...121601594.html

              H Bomb? with enough cash you buy one on the black market from the old Soviet Union folks, no big surprise is Kimie has one...http://english.yonhapnews.co.kr/nort...000251315.html

              Who said H Bomb???http://38north.org/2015/12/jlewis121415/

              Yes is is a problem, a big one, THEY HAVE THEM DEAL WITH IT...http://english.yonhapnews.co.kr/nort...000200315.html

              provocations are a coming, as sure as the sun came up this morning, learned a long time ago never count on those that have not yet risen...http://english.yonhapnews.co.kr/nort...09100315F.html

              So, what is the deal with the ladies from North Korea?...http://koreajoongangdaily.joins.com/...px?aid=3012833

              Maybe, Kimie to much BS...http://www.arirang.com/News/News_View.asp?nseq=186263

              Lee Jee-hyun has today's weather for Korea...http://www.arirang.co.kr/News/News_View.asp?nseq=186270

              To warm up you cold winter day here is our favorite Valkyrie in normal dress...
              uniform.jpg

              A very talented Valkyrie, and a smile that's hard to beat...
              uniform not.jpg
              And her voice is very sweet, not at all high or squeaky lol!

              Take care...Jim & Soo-jin back on the frontlines, Paju, ROK, Freedom's Frontier

We finally got back home Sunday morning, the family was there to meet "The little airplane", I think they are getting used to the routine and the camouflage uniformed slightly smelly folks getting off LOL! It's been getting so good we've been thinking maybe we should make it SOP, who knows, one hour to the frontline...naw won't work...dammit. even with the Navy Base opening in Seogwipo. That does open up some benies though!

                  No white Christmas in Korea this year, again fine with us lol...http://english.chosun.com/site/data/...122201276.html

                  No Christmas in Camp 16 at all, if you are not familiar with Camp 16 these are the people condemned to work at the nuclear test site until they die from radiation sickness. it is a death camp...http://freekorea.us/2015/12/17/hrnk-...-recent-years/

                  The ICBM's North Korea is said not to have by DC have been updated...http://38north.org/2015/12/icbm122115/

                        UPDATE 30 DECEMBER 2015, 1425 KST WEDS:

                        50F. and mostly sunny today on Jeju-do. We have been doing some horse back riding up and around Mt Halla today with lunch on the trail, may not be Colorado but sure is close...except for the tangerines growing in the groves.The family vacation is growing short now and we try to cram as much into a day as possible. My daughters will head back to Colorado 9 January after a short stay at our home in Paju and a tour of the DMZ/JSA areas plus a visit to our "office" to see where Soo-jin and I work. Then on to see Dutch Jr's AO and base camp.so they can see places and people they only heard of in emails and rare photos.. On the 8th they will have dinner /dance with the Paju crew and our ROK Army brothers and sisters at Yongsan , should be a good evening with live entertainment and music.

                        LOL! My right arm is much better, the stitches itch a bit but no pain now. No way could that slow down the vacation..no way!

                        We are building up here on the peninsula, with modernization going on in all fields...http://english.chosun.com/site/data/...122801064.html

                        Another reason we love Korea, our new home...http://koreajoongangdaily.joins.com/...px?aid=3013285

                        RED STAR OS? really....http://www.arirang.co.kr/News/News_View.asp?nseq=186670

                        On a serious note, folks are starting to wake up and listen to those boots that are in the mud walking the night. Seems they now understand North Korea can make very modern nuclear weapons and use less material than the "giants"...http://www.arirang.com/News/News_View.asp?nseq=186589

                        Lee Jee-hyun had today's weather for Korea, looking nice above the Han River...http://www.arirang.co.kr/News/News_View.asp?nseq=186728

                        With New Years just a day away we wish you all a very Happy New Year. we hope you New Years eve will be a nice as it is here in Valhalla, and the morning be as beautiful...
                        New Year 1.jpg
                        And maybe a nice ride in the hills with a Valkyrie.oh wait, you are not here yet...and Mt Halla looks great today too.
                        New Year 2.jpg
                        But if you want to stay indoors we have Valkyries there too...
                        New Year 3.jpg
                        To bad, not here. What can we say, we keep telling you to come on over...your loss LOL!

                        From the entire "Combined Dutch Family" and all our friends here on Jeju-do we with you all a very Happy and Peaceful New Years!

                        Happy New Year!...Dutch, Soo-jin, Dutch Jr., "Snow Flake", Richard, Yun-hee, "The Blind Mice", and the entire "Paju Corral Gang"...Jeju-do, Valhalla, ROK
