lo righty luft right

Last day at home for who knows how long.
My garment bag and one of my seabags is packed, but I still need to get my 2nd seabag and ditty bag in order. I'm taking a greyhound out of Philly at midnight tonight, heading for points unknown.
Okay, I really do know where I'm going, but I'm feeling dramatic.

I'm excited and scared. I'm finally going out to make my way in the world... the first step is over, and it was a big one. Not many girls can say they've completed recruit training at Parris Island, now can they? ;) But, I still have a LONG way to go, and while it's going to be easier in some ways, it will be harder, too. I hope I'm up to the challenge. I've never really done anything for myself before...

Anyhow, I'm going to dissapear for a few weeks again. Enjoy your air conditioning and think of long-suffering puppysmuggler sweating in her cammies, hiking around under an ALICE pack! ;)

I'll see you all again once I get to Twentynine Palms, next month.
