Just wanted to say hello to fellow Marylanders
I grew up in Mt Airy and loved it it use to be such a small town.. I guess its not that way anymore.. Haven't been back in 10 years or so..

I too was in the Navy stationed in Sunny San Diego on a ship. Also went to school in Pensacola FL for almost 2 years when i joined. Man those were good times

I can't wait to hear about the roadtrip with 3 boys. I remember those LOOONG hours on 95 heading to the world.. Fighting with my brother the whole way. And just think the speed limit was 55 then

Chuck did have a LARGE assortment of dvd's

Hooray for not forgetting gameboys and Oreo's successful boarding

It is wonderful to know that Chuck will be there for the kid's birthdays and to help with the move.
Thanks Tracy! I'm use to migraines as I get at least two a month. I was kind of expecting it.

Not only was the speed limit lower, but there were no DVD players in the vehicles!

My husband has spent quite a bit of time in San Diego - not on a ship though. We were actually hoping to get orders out that way, but it didn't happen.

Glad to have you along!

I am so loving hearing all about everyone's experiences with those crazy dryers!

Chuck is in the process of registering here on the Dis and getting all decked out. Be on the lookout for him (mnkyboy24).

I love those dryers! They seriously amaze and have been known to wash my hands several times jsut to use them. I hope the move goes smoothly. We did a move on a little less notice than that and it was just so hectic I never felt like I caught my breath!

So, that means in just about 2 months we'll be moving!
I am the electronics "geek" for the house and the "pack mule" for most excursions too. Eh.....its a living. Lucklily they were fairly generous with the orders and the timing, so I could help with the moving and setting up in Norfolk (VA Beach more likely). Plus I wouldn't want to have Carissa suffer without Internet and HDTV, she can get a little grumpy! Just kidding...she is quite capable...she just gets a smidgen frustrated with all the cables and connectors.

Thankfully since the military hires packers/movers for us, it won't be too bad. The timing works out great with the boys school.

Hiya Chuck!

The place we'll probably end up living at is right next to it so that would be really convenient for me.
There used to be one right on the Oceanic base but a few years ago they built a nice new big one just down the street so it is not officially on the base but close enough.

Just wanted to say a quick HI to Chuck! Nice to have the hubby's perspective...I think! LOL!

He's a step ahead of Jeff..he only posts on my PTR using my screen name. Maybe Chuck can convince him to get his own...from one electronics "geek" to another!
