Yes, it’s all very true, we have our written orders. The lovely piece of paper that gives the ability to do ANYTHING.
Okay, well maybe not anything, but enough to get us from point a to b. Yet again, it has been kind of a stressful week because earlier we were told that they couldn’t find a language teach for A and it was a possibility that they would just send us in country. As awesome as that sounds, it was just a lot of stress that we didn’t want to deal with right now.
There were reasons why we picked to stay in DC for our language course, but a big part of it was so we could pace things out a bit with the process. We’ve already heard several times how long the medical clearance takes. Imagine trying to do all of that in the matter of a few months in Hawai’i … not up for that.
With that being said, we’re leaving the island in August. And we’re already making plans for a possible cross-country road trip. We’re thinking about starting in San Francisco, heading north towards Washington and then driving east and covering the northern states.
We’ve done a cross-country road trip from New York to California, but went a more southern route because of the winter season. Since it’s summer, we’re heading north!
A will have the whole month of August for leave, so we’re planning on road tripping for 2 weeks and then taking care of securing our new home for the next 9 months.
It’s still a tad bit too early to secure a home, but in the next couple of weeks, we’ll start some major home-hunting. I’m hoping that we can find a house instead of an apartment, but that’s still up in the air.
So yes, PCS season is officially upon us and we’re ready to get the ball rolling!
Anyone else PCSing this summer?
