I came in as A1C w/ my degree. My sponsor at the shop thinks I might be able to get out of the dorms sooner than normally being 28. I'll be the oldest Airman and older than some of the NCO's in the shop hah. My stuff is in storage now, I figured I'd put it back in storage out there. I'll make some $$$ by moving it.

I'll be taking leave in Louisiana, where my parents are. If I wanted to get anything of mine out of storage I'd have to drive up to NC anyway. TMO said the govt would ship it for free but someone would have to be there to take everything out of storage and unpack it. I figure if I'm gonna be there I might as well do it myself and max my weight limit and make some $$$ in the process.

keep your paperwork packet in a safe place.

i just got billed by DFAS for my travel pay from my DITY move in 2010. I tossed my paperwork after a year. They said there was no record of my move and that i was given travel pay in error. Long story short i had to pay back the entire amount because i couldn't produce my paperwork. Dont make my same mistake, file that crap away

No record of your move?! Id tell them "how the hell do you think I got here"?!

I'll be doing a full-dity move after I graduate tech school in 2.5 weeks. I have an apartment's worth of stuff back at my HOR in NC. TMO already told me the Govt would do everything for me BUT someone would have to be there to unpack everything I've already packed and take it out of storage. I figure since I'd have to be there anyway I might as well move it myself and make a little $$ off the trip.

I'll be taking about 2 weeks worth of leave after tech school as well but to visit my family in Louisiana.

Question is: Is it possible to do the dity move as two separate trips? What I want to do is go to Louisiana for a few days after graduation (on leave), then drive to NC and uhaul everything back to Louisiana and stay there for another ~5 days (on leave) until I need to leave to head to my next duty station. Everything that will be weighed and in the truck/uhaul will go with me to the base.

Or should I just plan on using the days at the end of my leave + travel time to do the trip as one haul.

My next duty station is Mt Home ID. I'm single, no dependents, nothin. Just me and the road.

You are authorized one Home Of Record Dity Move in your carrer. So if you don't do it now, you can always do it later when ever you want. Don't do what one idiot in my unit done. He file three seperate HOR Dity moves and got kicked out of the Air Force for stealing/fraud.

For one TMO will give you some free days to make your DITY move which should more than cover your necessary move time so just plan your leave time in conjunction with that. And as long as you don't go wild the cost will mostly be cover with your advanced funds as well
