When I arrived in Montgomery, I was tired and I was ready to get what sleep I could before the big day. I spotted another service member in the airport, but he went off before I could talk to him. Come to find out, we ended up at base lodging together and he wound up being in my squadron. I hit the curb and found the first cab driver that I could, although it was quite the adventure as I second guessed the legitimacy of his enterprise when I jumped in the car. Luckily, I made it to base lodging and got into my room as soon as I could. It was tough calming down that night, but I knew sleep was going to be precious.

Two by two, we walked across the grass fields, dragging our bags and heading to the dorms. For those that couldn't carry all of their luggage at once, there was a truck for transporting it over. Frankly, I wasn't going to be that girl and schlepped all of my stuff.
What happened when we hit the door? Well, that's going to have to wait for the next post...
