DMJ Headache - Took the long traffic jammed drive up to DMJ's today only to be shut down by the MP at the gate. He said recent beef ups in security means no civilians are getting in, period.

Lame.

Dumb question - Hey this might sound kinda stupid, but couldn't you just paddle over to DMJ's around the Oceanside harbor? I know it would be a loooong paddle, but has anyone done this? Think it would be worth it??

By dmj insider , 09-06-2006

heads up if you think you can go to dmj's - anyone who thinks they can get on base is wrong!! mp's are cracking down with higher security precautions... they tow your car and write you a ticket... sometimes arrest you... too many buddies of mine have gotten hasseled by them and people are starting to realize this place is over-rated... not worth the hassle at all...
