"Dana's" Police Car and The Convoy Riva

The picture of me and the police car is for the family- yes, this is my primary "driving around" vehicle while on the An-Numinaya Military Training Base. Relatively safe environment, but still carry firearms.

The grey vehicle is a Toyota Riva- I don't know what the gas mileage is, but I'm guessing its not that high. I rode in one of these from Baghdad down here with our contractor friends. No hostile fire, which was nice. They mount a couple of machine guns in the two turrets, and they don't stop for checkpoints that aren't clearly US-controlled. It makes me think "Mad Max", but I don't plan on making a habit of that convoy. I'm going to push for helicopter transport if I ever leave this place.
