Our Move Out West

Wow, The Monday after Easter we left for our journey across the country! Really excited and super nervous! We had never been this far from our family before! Jon had helped plan our trip with stops at almost every Bass Pro Shop along our trip! That boy loves fishing!!! The first day we drove from Alabama to Shreveport, LA. On the way though of course we stopped in Jackson, MS at the Bass Pro Shop for some shopping and Lunch! Then on to Shreveport! What a fun town! We went to the Bass Pro Shop, Shopped around, and eat a fabulous dinner at this Wonderful Cajun Restaurant!

Day 2 was good, we had gotten a good nights sleep and we were refreshed and ready to go! We drove to Garland, TX were we visited the Bass Pro Shop and got some wonderful Lunch at Ismaralda Fish and Company. Then we left there and drove to Midland, TX! Our Hotel was not exactly where we thought it was going to be but it was still okay and we went to eat at Cheddars. Our favorite restaurant from Fort Benning, GA. It was not as good but was still yummy!

Day 3 started out good but man the road conditions slowed us down and our 9 hour drive turned into a 12 hour drive! We were both exhausted by the time we arrived to Fort Huachuca! We checked into our hotel and went to go eat. With a 15
minute wait we decided we were to tired and went to Subway which we took to the hotel! I looked like a puffer fish I was so swollen! We laid down and it was over till the next morning!

Finally there, now time to get a house! We went to housing early and got a house! Woo Hoo! People here are so much nicer than any other post that we have been too! And Fort Bragg's Housing (Picerne) needs to come take lessons from these people!
