    Well after 12 months, I'm finally sitting in a former-soviet-bloc country awaiting a flight home.

    After first sleeping 14 hours, I struggled with what I might do. Then I realized I could start negotiating the price of a new Tacoma with 4 or 5 dealers online.

    Its keeping me busy:D

    Oh if I could ETS already...

    I'm headed for a short 6 month stint at Ft Huachuca, AZ for some schooling. After that, who knows. I'll owe about a year at that point. Looking at potentially trying to get to Hawaii. My career field rules out places where I can ski like Ft. Lewis or Ft. Carson, so I might just end up settling for a beach.

    That would be nice. But I've passed through here 4 times now, and my chain of command has denied that privilege on every occasion. No matter, I'll just drink that much more when I get home!
