Will be leaving on vacation from Okinawa, going on home leave to Hawaii.  One of the things that Baxter Japan said that I must do is change my end connector as the US doesn't use the UV system.  So instead of the UV machine hooking the bags together I must manually hook them up.  Oh well more changes but Im still here it's been over a year now on PD.  Hope it lasts.  Looking forward to strumming my uke back home in da islands.
Aloha, komomai :2thumbsup;
