Welcome to the forum sailor. Thanks for serving. Will they let you take a motorized bike on the ship?
One of my most vivid memories was manning the rails on the USS Tarawa, painfully hungover, at the beginning of our WestPac cruise. It was the good old days of the cold war.
The Russians buzzed our ship in the Sea of Japan in a TU-57 (Bear?). We used a CH-53E to chase it off because it was already airborne and the cobra pilots were asleep. (The alert cobra on spot one had live sidewinders on the rail and plenty of 20mm for the gatling gun. Ancient history. Semper Fi.
