I spent 4 months IN the lash and to be honest it was pretty sound. Good facilities, shop, gym, cinema/welfare tent, volleyball pitch etc. But that was just less than a year ago and I know that since the marines have been there, a lot more incoming has fallen at Lash. It does have the BullSh1t factor though as Bde HQ is there so you can expect more in the way of pressed kit and berets going on. Certainly the Bde RSM when I was there had a real arrse itch about cutting about properly dressed and only walking on designated pathways (sounds like Phase 2) but not sure what the current Bde RSM is like.
In a nutshell its better than Bastion but not as entertaining as Kabul.
PM me for specific questions, as I'm there pretty often. Good camp, safe (very little IDF, none for weeks), very good food, decent facilities, decent laundry, etc. There are far worse places to go in Afghanistan, that's for sure.
