I was at Camp Pendleton today doing an installation of security software and saw an MRAP go by me.  On the back it said "Student Driver" as you can see in the pic.  I fear no student driver when they are driving a Toyota Corrola, but in an MRAP, I get the F out the way

What area?
Sorta looks like Area 22.

This was about five miles in from the main gate off of I-5.  I was over near the medical hospital near the lake.

Cool. I spent 3 months living in the 22 area before I deployed to KAF. You passed it on your way to hospital.
If you have the time, be sure to check the beach area down by the main gate.

I already left there and am headed home in the morning.  I will check it out next time I am out there.  Camp Pendleton has one AMAZING paintball course there.  It has castles, bunkers, and all kinds of win!  I want to try that out sometime as well.   I have been there three times in the last two months and the weather has been low 70s and perfect.  A nice break from the awful summer we have had this year in the Southeast.

The new course is much better than old one. The SOCAL weather is amazing.
Next time your there you should drive out the School of Infantry side of the base and see the hills the Marines hump.
Made me damn glad I was east coast.

You need to hit Albertos just down the road from the main gate.

Oh that would SUCK a donkey's d...
I tried running up one of the smaller hills in the 22 area. I thought my heart was going to explode out of my chest. On the bright side, the pain would have stopped pretty quickly.
