I'll post some of a local go-kart track soon. We have fun on the small 1/2 mile course and my 9yr old gets to ride his NSF 100.

What duty do you have in a Navel base? I was SP and I have heard Comiso is now a college? Care to confirm that?

Really, you got a S1K and not been all over that island! Some killer switch backs up to some of those towns. It's all good a nice island, I found a 1941 9mm lugar round digging a fox hole once, lots of UXE there back in the 80's.
Enjoy the rides over there be safe.
