Let the fun begin!

Got in late last night. Surprisingly they had about 200+ people doing check in. Got our linen, assigned battalions and barracks. Good ole Navy linen... 2 sheets and the blanket from hell we're all used to. Today will have some meetings and the fun begins tomorrow.

All I can about SC is that it's HOT and HUMID. Definitely a change from Colorado. Everyone is walking around keeping to themselves until they get the lay of the land. Drank a lot of water last night but still feeling a bit dehydrated. Slept like a baby last night though... Didn't need the blanket. CN and I stood out like sore thumbs since everyone was in BDU's or ACU's. Forgot to bring a padlock for my wall locker so have to pick up one of those today and shower shoes. Always forget something when traveling. Nothing much else to say.... Just want to get this portion of training over with.


1st day.

Posting on a blog for the first time. Been wanting to do this for a while. I think I got the inspiration from a friend of mine and viewing his blogs a few years back.

Got the idea for the blog name from the move "Inception" that my friend R and I saw today. Kinda feel like we all walk on penrose stairs at times.

10 days away from starting my adventure. I have the "travel bug" again. Been looking into STA Travel and their "Around the World" trips. I would like to hit some obscure places. Any one of the "-stans" looks interesting, Eastern Europe.... even SE Asia looks cool.

I want to minimize things in my life, especially objects. Funny considering that by anyones estimation, mine included, I can seem quite materialistic. Even Tumbleweed houses look interesting... So part of the traveling is wanting to minimize what I take (my camera, couple pairs of clothes, baby wipes and a small laptop).

Something to plan for next year.
