    Sucks for you.

    Yeah; the hump is the biggest army post on the peninsula. Big gym and nice facilities for the most part. Taxis only take dollars there now and it is a absolute rip off. Far from seoul, not much to do in Pyeongtaek last time I check.

    Fuck being anywhere but Seoul man.
     
  8. Humphrey is fine. It's like 20 minutes, not 45, from Osan, and like 45 to an hour from Seoul. Anjung-ri will treat you okay. Worse places to be.

    if they phase out curfew i will be visiting japan and taiwan and singapore.

    well it says projected ask one of your nco's in your unit to explain it.
     
  12. Curfew just means you have to be back on post by midnight. You could still take leave and go wherever you wanted, though. Unless you're planning on hitting up those places without taking leave, hitting them up after work, and then being back for PT in the morning, curfew has nothing to do with you visiting those places.

  15. Well, curfew wouldn't have anything to do with that. If you wanted to cover your bases (and be smart, because you never know when flight cancellations/delays would come back to bite you in the ass) you'd still take leave whether or not there was a curfew. It's not like they do bed check or anything- curfew just means if you're caught walking around town after midnight, you get in trouble. It doesn't mean you have to be in your own room or anything. Lots of people get hotel rooms and sleep there on the weekends anyway.

    What I'm telling you is curfew has absolutely nothing to do with whether or not you want to go to those places.

    curfew isn't until 0300 now...
     
  17. I haven't been there since 2006, but what would that possibly have to do with the issue. The point is you still either bounce on what should be leave or don't- curfew has nothing to do with it.

    same thing here, was held at yongsan instead of humphreys. thank god for that. regardless of where u go you'll be here in seoul for a week then off to your new home, unless they've changed it again in the last year.

    the trips can be fun, unless you have short notice and S2 routinely loses stuff

    just the stereotype you'll always get.

    "oh, you're a GI who married a korean? Must have met at a juicy bar"

    It is a place where you can buy juice drinks for women so they will keep you company.
