What would you do with 30 hours?

Check into a Crown Plaza of course!!!!!!

I know it has only been 5 days since I checked into GI Jane land here @ Fort Devens, MA. They gave us break...An entire 30 hours... What to do, what to do.... ???

I took my good ole trusty rental car, my GPS & found a hotel in Natick, MA 27 miles from base. I decided to treat myself to a real bed, TV, Internet & Pizza!!!!! I've been living in the Barracks and eating Mess Hall food, No Television, No Internet, No cell phone signal (Thanks, Sprint) 100 threat count sheets & a nice comfy green wool blanket, Hot or Cold water, NOT BOTH! Torture I know, Someones gotta do it,,, If you didn't have the yuck, how would you know when you have the good?

When I return to Fort Devens we go on our FTX mission, (FTX = Field Environment) for 72 hours! Nothing like a bunch of Admin type folks in a field type environment playing war games!! Half our class has been deployed to Iraq and or Afghanistan, I will be leaning on them for guidance, since we are graded on this exercise. Then back to the class room for our last three classes/tests before graduation on the 16th!!

Now, that we are all caught up... I'm going to log off and enjoy my room... & if anyone is counting... We have 23 days till we depart for Sydney, Australia!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
