    I'm from pretty big cities (Honolulu/Los Angeles/Vegas) and am now at JBLM - can't say that its great for going out out (like clubs, nicer restaurants, etc. unless you drive to like Seattle or Bellevue or pretty much anywhere other than Tacoma or Lakewood! ) IMO but it does have some good points when its not raining...and the summers here, while it can get freakin' HOT - can be really beautiful! Lots of outdoor activites, for sure

    But at least it's relatively close to Seattle. I definitely think a change of scenery will be good for us. I'm a little nervous about the rain though. I'm trading snow for rain!! I can't wait for career course and Georgia weather!

    I don't mind the drive, but its about an hour away (without traffic) and people here drive sloooooow. It does rain a lot here, but you get used to it for the most part - I love snow, but not sure I could handle living with it! You are definitely right about it being like GA weather - the humidity here...GAH!!! But, the sun is out today - so I can't complain (ATM)

    We go to Benning for career course. This is a weird year for us. We will be at Lewis for less than a year then PCS to Benning for career course, then on to who knows. An hour is nothing!! Syracuse is almost an hour and a half away and there really isn't anything too great there besides dinosaur bbq and the mall.

    I've only been to Gordon and Stewart, but I've heard Benning is great and huge (I think)! You'll be hitting all the seasons while at Lewis so it'll definitely be interesting I don't mind driving - but my DH tends to bitch about it Coming from San Diego and Vegas, the Asian food here leaves A LOT to be desired, and the BBQ, eh. The malls are decent though - well, in Seattle / Bellevue IMO of course - don't mean to offend anyone (if I have)!
