Sand Through My Toes

My big adventure in the sand

Another night in the 16 man tent…

Yeppers, reported when we were told to and were given the news that “you shall wait another night, report back tomorrow evening at 8:30!”   I am beginning to dig the hurry up and wait philosophy, as there is nothing else!   If only I could get my pic to upload (internet connection is sloooooooowwwwwww), I promise my digs aren’t anywhere near as nice as where I wish I was still sleeping!!! 🙂  Will get pic up soon.



Wow, it’s HOT!!

After a very long day, I am finally in Kuwait!  Flew on a MilAir Flight on Delta out of Indy to Hahn, Germany for refueling!  It was great to stop there b/c I was able to touch base with a few friends prior to reboarding.

Then, back on the bird — yes, in the extended leg room in row 5, but not like the way Uncle Craig and Michelle hook me up every summer — no business class, just extended leg room.  The perk of being a DoD Civilian and not a contractor, being called first to board the plane — with open seating!

Made it to Kuwait and learned the meaning once again of hurry up and wait, and wait, and wait, and wait!  After a very disorganized way to distribute tent assignments, I was finally in my  16 man tent and secured a bottom bunk!  The lights are kept on all night to keep the critters away…oh boy, so I hung up my towels and my shirts, and my…just kidding, but not about the towel as the light seemed to shine right on my bunk!  Hmmm…

We have a brief at 8:30 this evening and we’ll find out when we get on our next military transport to Kabul!  My 365 days has begun and I am thrilled to be here!  j

Stay cool all — it’s 122 today!!!  HOT HOT HOT………
