I have a couple friends assigned to subs here. One posted some pics of what they do out in the middle of the ocean. This is not his sub, they cannot post pics of it anywhere.

I was wondering why they all look jaundice in the second pic. I think they played with the hue and saturation.

Those over-under shots are tough to take. I have all the equipment for it, but not the skill to regularly line up a moving water line with the center of the frame.

On Carriers, Steel Beach Picnics usually happen every 120 days.  It's called Splicing The Mainbrace. Two cold cans of beer per man.  There is an official signal for it.

The Sub base 14 miles from my house has 8 Ohio class subs assigned to it. 2 cruise missile subs and 8 ballistic missile subs. If there was a nuclear war, we would be evaporated instantly. No worries about a nuclear winter.

Given our enemies capabilities, you'd probably get horribly burned and die of sepsis after radiation poisoning. Nasty way to go.

14 miles is pretty close to the safe zone for a one megaton bomb. Flesh will only be badly burned within 5 miles of the blast, with minor burns out to 8 miles. Even flash blindness shouldn’t be a big issue beyond 13 miles, except for an air burst during a clear night.

Assuming the enemy hits the sub pens, 14 miles is relatively safe.

1 single warhead?  It is doubtful, to me, that in a potential strike against 1/3 of the US boomer fleet a solitary warhead would be used.  To overcome ballistic missile defenses, an enemy would likely hit Kings Bay with multiple warheads on multiple trajectories.
