Just a quick one!
Just to let you all know we arrived yesterday. We are in the good ole's just as average as I remember, WiFi is terrible, currently hooked up via my cell phone which leaves a bit desired but it will do for now. Ride was pretty uneventful with the exception of my windshield getting cracked on Amboy Road, those of you that know the area will not be surprised. We HAVE to get out of the lodge, the pets are cranky and we are too. Hubs can't check with housing till Monday so he we will sit till at least Monday. We will go out today and look around at some temporary places. I have no access to all my clothes since they are in the back of trailer and hubs has to weigh it on Monday so we don't want to unpack it. So till than I am relegated to travel clothes which are basically PT clothes..ugh, gotta love this life.
29 Palms hasn't changed much, base has a little, seems it has grown just a bit which is a good thing. Trying to stay upbeat and optimistic, we all know how hard that is during a PCS. My hope is the wait isn't too long for housing but we are prepared for the worse. Be checking in when I can...thanks for all the great comments, can't wait to get settled and catch up on all your blogs, I really miss them.

Yay! Welcome to your new "home" I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you that housing comes through quickly and you can stop camping out.
We start our "camp out" in less than a week. Four hotels, lots of different cities, one visit to family... and we'll finally be at our final destination. Oh wait, is it final when you're only there for a year?
Hang in there, you're on the down hill side!!

So glad to hear you made it safely, sorry about the windshield. Hope you get housing soon and the wait isn't too long!

Good luck on the housing in 29.... It took us 5 months. Lovely 29 palms... Glad you could join us in this crap hole! LOL

Thanks! I expect the worst so it's all good. I have lived here before so I have a good idea what to expect, we have family close and our son is going to college in Arizona so that is enough for me to be happy. We have spent the majority of our time in the Corps overseas and on the east coast. Looking for the change. Tried to link to your blog but it wouldn't let me. Anyhow thanks for the comment!

YAY! I can totally relate to unpacking, my stuff is sitting in a budget rental truck as we speak. But this is our first DITY move so its all been a great learning experience =) I have never been to Palms so tell me how to compares to Lejeune!
